Healthy Vegetarian Pizza Recipe

Enjoy a healthy and simple vegetarian pizza recipe using whole foods and simple ingredients. Serves plenty, but you can easily double the recipe for a party.

It doesn't have to be complicated to make a vegetarian pizza! In this simple recipe I use whole and healthy ingredients. In the end, this makes for a really tasty vegetable pizza!

Vegetarian Pizza Recipe

Tip: After baking the pizza, cover it loosely with aluminium foil and let it stand for 15 min. This makes the veggies even more tender, and gets the flavors more balanced.

As all pizza, it's really tasty the next day. Even straight out of the fridge or after re-heating slightly.

This is also a great party dish. Simply double the recipe and make two pan pizzas at once with the same effort, for a large crowd!
