Healthy Veggie Pizza


Below I posted an easy 10-Step Recipe so you can make this at home!


Healthy Veggie Pizza
created by Snacking Squirrel


Step 1: spray a little oil on a baking pan, I used Pam Olive Oil Spray


Step 2: (optional) sprinkle 2 tsp cornmeal or Bob's 
Red Mill Hot Cereal on the pan to help prevent sticking


Step 3: mix dry ingredients together in a bowl: 
1/3 cup flour, 1/8 cup oat bran or rice bran, 2 tsp
nutritional yeast1 tsp basil, 1/2 tsp oregano, 1/2 tsp thyme, 
1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp baking soda, pinch of salt


Step 4: mix wet ingredients together in a bowl:
 1/2 head cauliflower pureed in a food processor,
 1/2 cup fat free refried beans1/4 cup egg whites, 
1/5 cup water, 1 tsp apple cider vinegar


Step 5: mix wet and dry ingredients together and scoop
the batter onto baking pan; Gently spread with a spatula


Step 6: Bake @ 400 Fahrenheit for 20-25 minutes


Step 7: make the sauce by combining 1/3 cup pasta sauce or
 tomato sauce, 1/8 cup salsa and a pinch of brown sugar or stevia


Step 8: spread sauce on baked pizza crust and top with your favorite 
veggies... like spinach, mushrooms, green peppers and sliced red onions


Step 9: sprinkle on 1/3 cup light shredded mozarella cheese 
or Daiya Vegan Cheese, I used Kraft Light 4 Cheese Italiano


Step 10: pop the pizza back in the oven and continue baking 
for 10-15 minutes or so until the cheese begins to lightly brown


salivate, slice and serve this sucker :)

Yuuuum. Now I want pizza! I love making pizzas at home so you can healthify them a bit (but of course still load on cheese!)

Well, hello ther! Thank you for the sweet comments on my new pot! :)
I haven't been on that blog in a long time (obviously) and only just started up again on a different one, so seeing that you cut your hair was a surprise! It looks fabulous, though (as does the pizza, ha)

Hope you're well. :)

Oh my gosh! That pizza looks so good. I haven't had a pizza in ages and I'm thinking this would be a good way to get pizza back into my life.

Thank you for posting the recipe! This looks so, so good! And I see there's another onion lover around here! ;)

Rach said... [reply]

Sooo yummy! I love pizza so much it makes me happy! :D

efi said... [reply]

The recipe looks amazing!

Just one thing, it is better to use olive oil, than a fat free substitute. It is pure chemical.

Chelsea said... [reply]

Beans and cauliflower in the crust? I love this! You're so creative!

Mandiee said... [reply]

You, my dear, are quite the genius culinary mixologist! I love that you use cauliflower, refried beans, nooch, and even oat bran (or rice bran---goodness I really need to find my little GF-friendly self some ASAP!) in a pizza crust. I definitely would not have thought of that combination, but I'm so glad you did; it sounds like the perfect hearty mixture. I guess I will be getting my pizza stone out very, very soon. ;)

Have a lovely day!

Crystal said... [reply]

That looks so yummy! I'm assuming the cauliflower was raw, right? Can you taste it very much in the crust?

I'm really impressed by how creative this recipe is!

Sonia said... [reply]

yaaaay for this recipe! I have seen a crust made of only cauliflower and egg before--but yours is so much better than that! I am going to try to veganize this!
Also..if I was using frozen cauliflower, how much would you say you used?

Emily said... [reply]

thanks for the recipe! i'm now craving a delish veggie pizza. :)

Lola said... [reply]

I want to make that right now!!! do you think I could make it in a pan instead of the oven?

Kate (What Kate is Cooking) said... [reply]

Yum! That looks so great. :) I love how creative you got by using cauliflower- I would have never thought of that.

Ange said... [reply]
