Roasted Veggie Pizza
Roasted Veggie Pizza – a classic pizza crust topped with ricotta and roasted vegetables. Quick and easy Friday night dinner!
Here we are. Right smack in the middle of the most wonderful time of the year! Also, the busiest. And the most stressful. And the time with the most tempting food choices to derail your diet. Ahhhh….Christmas.
Well, I have a new recipe for you today that will help keep you right on track. It’s quick. It’s easy. And it’s pretty healthful, too.
This Roasted Veggie Pizza uses a refrigerated pizza crust for the quick and easy part. And it’s topped with roasted veggies to keep it healthful. It doesn’t get much easier than this for a fast Friday night dinner.
How to Make Roasted Veggie Pizza
Just open and unroll your pizza crust onto a greased baking sheet. Mix together a little ricotta with an egg and a dash of salt and pepper. Slather the ricotta all over the pizza crust.
Put your choice of veggies on a second baking sheet. I used a box of grape tomatoes, some thinly sliced red onion, and green bell pepper. Choose whatever your family likes.
You could switch out the green bell pepper for red or another kind of pepper altogether. Or add some thinly sliced zucchini. Whatever suits you.
Drizzle the veggies with a little olive oil and a light sprinkle of salt. Mix it all up with your hands to get the olive oil distributed evenly.
Pop both baking sheets into your 350 degree preheated oven and cook for about 15 minutes or until the tomatoes start to burst open and slump a bit. Remove the veggies when that happens, but leave the crust in a bit longer if needed for additional browning.
Remove the crust from the oven and top with some fresh baby spinach.
Add the roasted veggies on top of the spinach. Serve immediately.

This looks fabulous! I really like the addition of fresh spinach.
Lana, this looks outstanding! love how you cook the veggies a little first, I have not done that and it makes all the sense in the world… thanks, looking forward to this on a busy week night coming up
I used one of their Artisan Whole Wheat crusts the other night when I made my most favorite pizza ever; goat cheese with mushrooms and sausage. It was fabulous!
This looks so simple; wish I had another of those crusts in the freezer now.
I really enjoy those crusts for times when I want pizza *now* and don’t have time for a homemade crust. Your goat cheese, mushroom, and sausage combination sounds fantastic!
It’s even Christmas-y in color – very nice!
I sometimes use hummus in place of sauce – that also would work nicely here.
I didn’t even realize that I’d made a Christmas-y pizza, but you’re right! Using hummus sounds interesting. Never thought of that.
To give credit where it’s due, I got the idea from a pizza chain I enjoy: Extreme Pizza. Their “Peace in the Middle East” pie has homemade hummus, tomatoes, olives, red onions, feta, mozzarella, fresh basil, pepperoncinis. AMAZING!!
