There really are no limits to the types of vegetarian pizza you can make. This recipe just happens to be one of two home made pizzas I made a couple of weeks ago – the other was Hawaiian Pizza.
Serve you pizza with Pear and Parmesan Salad – delicious!
To prepare a pizza in ten minutes you’ll need a ready-to-use base. Fresh and frozen varieties are readily available these days – some better than others.
I suggest you check the ingredients before you buy. The four basic ingredients are flour, yeast, oil and water. If the ingredient list is as long as your arm, maybe keep looking. The one I buy has a thin layer of tomato paste and herbs already applied – but I add a little extra.
A whole pizza can serve one or more people – you decide
Vegetarian Pizza – Ingredients
- Pizza Base
- Tomato Paste
- Fresh or Dried Oregano (or other herb of your choice)
- Fresh asparagus
- Capsicum (any colour – I used red and yellow)
- Feta Cheese (or goats cheese)
- Grated Cheddar Cheese (or other grated cheese)
- Pizza tray or Pizza stone to cook
Vegetarian Pizza – Method
- If you are using a pizza stone, pre-heat it
- Gently cook the asparagus in a little boiling water – don’t over-cook or it will go soggy – drain well
- Spread a thin layer of tomato paste on pizza base
- Sprinkle with oregano, or other chosen herb
- Place the previously cooked and drained asparagus on the pizza
- Add all other ingredients
- Cook in pre-heated hot oven for 10-15 minutes
- Pizza can be eaten just on it’s own; enjoyed at the dining table; in front of the TV; or any other relaxing place
- Cutlery – optional
- I like to serve with jacket potatoes and sometimes a green salad as well
- Don’t forget to pre-heat the pizza stone – the base will take too long to cook if you don’t, by which time the topping will be burnt
- Suggest you don’t pile on the ingredients too much – less is more
- Mozzarella cheese is traditionally used, but I find it a bit tasteless
- You can also buy ready grated pizza cheese at the supermarkets – but I still prefer tasty cheddar
- If you don’t have a pizza tray or stone, just use a large baking tray
Like I mentioned earlier, the sky’s the limit when it comes to vegetarian pizza so feel free to experiment. I don’t think I make the same pizza twice!
