Scott Farms Vegetable Pizza

If you have never tasted a vegetarian pizza, try this one.  It is a tasty treat that is also healthy. If you insist you could add pepporoni, sausage or canadian bacon as an additional ingredient. we prefer whole wheat pizza crust but any crust thick or thin is acceptable. Enjoy pizza without all the fat.

Ingredients:

  • Tomato Sauce
  • 1 TBS Olive oil
  • 1 small red onion or yellow onion
  • 2 roma tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 3 TBS tomato paste(puree)
  • 1 tsp of dried oregano
  • 1 TBS of Scott Farms Grateful Garlic Seasoning
  • 1 tsp of Scott Farms Spirited Southwest Rub (optional)

Toppings

  • 2-3 oz of small mushrooms or portabellow cut into slices
  • 1/4 cup of sliced black olives or green olives 
  • 4-5 baby corn (fresh or canned)
  • 1 1/2 cups of grated mozzarelia cheese or mix of romano & mozzarelia
  • 4-5 fresh spinach leaves
  • 1/2 of red or green bell pepper cut into short thin strips or diced
  • 2 TBS of pine nuts or if not available, unsalted almond slices 

Pizza Crust

  • 1 10 oz or 12 inch pizza crust that you find in your favorite deli (we prefer whole wheat thin crust)

Directions:

To make Tomato Sauce

Heat oil in a small pan, then add onion & Scott Farms Grateful Garlic Seasoning and cook over medium heat for approx. 3 minutes or until onions are soft. Add diced tomatoes & Scott Farms Spirited Southwest Rub ( only add the Spirited Southwest if you like a spicer pizza) reduce heat & simmer 10 minutes stirring occasionally. Stir in tomato paste & oregano, cook for at least 3 minutes. Set aside.

Topping pizza

Place pizza dough on pizza pan ( hint sprinkle cornmeal or polenta on pan before placing dough on pan to keep an even non stick surface) Spread sauce evenly over pizza crust, arrange all ingredients except cheese, spinach, and pine nuts on crust. Now sprinkle 1/2 of cheese over ingredients, now top with remaining ingredients including remaining cheese. Bake according to directions on your pizza crust.  We bake at 450 degrees for approx 10 minutes or till cheese is melted & ingredients are soft. The time & temp will be according to the pizza crust you purchase. You can add any of your favorite ingredients & delete any ingredients that you don't care for on the toppings, exception the cheese.

We love this healthy pizza & hope you do to.  Larry & JoAnna Scott
