No-Fuss Pizza

This homemade pizza is a quick, no-fuss meal for everyone to enjoy. It is an easy fix meal, especially for a weeknight dinner. Everyone can choose their own sauce and toppings and build their own pizzas. It is the best way to have kids eat their veggies as well… I have seen my kid going from just cheese pizza to adding onions, olives and bell pepper! I believe when you let them build their own pizza they do tend to experiment more and enjoy eating what they made. 

This is my go-to pizza whenever I want a homemade pizza real quick… Trust me you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Serves: 2

Ingredients:

  • 1 Zucchini, sliced
  • 5 Mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/3 cup Broccoli, chopped in small florets
  • 1/4 Onion, sliced
  • 1/4 Eggplant, sliced
  • 1/2 Bell pepper, sliced
  • 3 stalks of Kale coarsely chopped
  • Olives Sliced
  • Jalapeno fresh or bottled sliced
  • 3 to 4 tablespoon Ketchup or Buffalo Sauce or Pesto or Pizza sauce per bread
  • Grated Cheese
  • Olive oil or Truffle oil
  • 3 Lavash bread (about 1-1/2 per person)

How To:

  • Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F.
  • Lightly brush olive oil on the lavash bread and place it in the oven for 3-4 minutes to get a bit toasty. Keep an eye on it as to not to burn them. It should be just a little bit toasty but still soft. Remove and keep aside. This will make a crispier crust.
  • Meanwhile, wash and chop the vegetables that you are planning on using.

Note:

  • Use any vegetables that you have on hand like corn, beans, olives, jalapeno, artichoke hearts, asparagus thinly sliced, green beans sliced thinly, potatoes thinly sliced.
  • If using greens like spinach add it to the pizza towards the end, 1-2 minutes before removing it from the oven. You can also add it right after you remove the pizza from the oven and drizzle olive oil over it. Greens like arugula add it after you remove from the oven. In the case of Kale, I usually add it along with other vegetables as it can stand the heat and won’t wilt on me. If you like raw by all means add it later.
  • If using chicken or any meat or seafood marinate and cook it before adding it to the pizza.
  • Sauce– You can use any sauce that you have on hand, from different kinds of pesto or ketchup or pasta sauce, alfredo sauce. If using regular ketchup you can add some chili powder or pepper, Italian seasoning and little water about a tablespoon or so to jazz it up a bit.
  • Oil– Dress it up with olive oil, truffle oil, balsamic vinegar.
  • Different ovens cook differently so keep an eye on the pizza and always cook them on the middle shelf.
