Veggie-Loaded Pesto Pizza

This a healthy pizza loaded with tons of veggies. It makes a great one-dish meal. With all of these veggies I don't even make a salad when I make this. This is also a great vegan pizza if you omit the cheese.


  • 1 package of frozen for refrigerated pizza dough
  • 1/2 cup vegan pesto or prepared pesto
  • 1 large clove garlic
  • An assortment of your favorite veggies such as
  • - halved cherry tomatoes or thinly-sliced roma tomatos
  • - grilled zucchini
  • - grilled eggplant
  • - artichoke hearts
  • - grilled peppers
  • - spinach or arugula leaves
  • - thinly sliced red onion
  • - kalamata olives
  • - pickled or oil-packed peppers
  • 1/2 to 1 cup crumbled goat cheese or mozzerella optional


  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees or according to the directions on your pizza dough or crust.
  • Prepare pizza dough using my method above or according to package directions.
  • If using my flip method, rub par-cooked pizza dough with garlic clove.
  • Spread pesto on pizza dough.
  • Top with vegetables and cheese (if using)
  • Bake at 500 degrees until dough is cooked, cheese is melted and toppings are heated:~ 5-12 minutes.
