Vegetarian Pizza Recipe Ingredients


1 envelope rapid-rise yeast

1 tbsp sugar

1 cup plus 1 tbsps warm water

1/4 tsp salt

2 tbsps extra-virgin olive oil

1 cup plus 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

1/4 tsp garlic powder

Nonstick cooking spray


1 cup canned crushed tomatoes, low sodium

1 tbsp dried basil

1 tsp oregano

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp dehydrated onions


1 cup sliced red onion

1/2 cup sliced mushrooms

1/4 cup diced red bell pepper

1/4 cup diced green pepper

1/2 cup shredded, part skim mozzarella cheese

Combine yeast, sugar, and water in a small bowl and mix until yeast and sugar are dissolved. Let rest 10 minutes. Add salt, olive oil, 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 cup whole wheat flour, and garlic powder and stir well, until a dough forms.

Add a few more drops of water if needed to make the dough stick together without becoming too sticky. Spread remaining 1/2 cup all-purpose flour on a surface to prevent sticking, place dough on surface, and knead 2 minutes, then cover with a dry dish towel and let rise on kneading surface for 10-25 minutes.

Heat oven to 400. Spray a pizza pan with nonstick cooking spray. Spread dough into a 12-inch circle. In a small bowl, combine sauce ingredients and stir well. Spoon sauce over crust and spread evenly.

Layer toppings evenly on pizza in the order listed, then bake for about 15-20 minutes until cheese is bubbly and crust lightly browned. Let sit for a few minutes, then cut into 8 slices.
