In my house, Friday night is pizza night and I don’t think I’m alone in that. There’s something celebratory about eating pizza at the end of the long week. It signals to my brain, “Hey! It’s time to kick up my feet, have a glass of wine, and enjoy myself!”
But even after a long week, I don’t want to give in and order delivery. Those slices are often greasy and loaded with unnecessary fat and sugar.
That’s where this recipe comes in. It’s easy to whip up, completely customizable, and a perfect way to add more veggies to your family’s diet.
Let’s get one thing out of the way - you can absolutely make your own dough. There are plenty of easy and accessible recipes online. That said, there is no shame in using store bought dough. There are plenty of great doughs on the market so save yourself some time and just pick one. I keep a few pre-made dough options on hand for quick dinners like this.
After spreading the sauce on the crust, sprinkle your favorite cheese on on top. For this recipe, I opted for goat cheese but just use what you have on hand. Fresh mozzarella is a classic option but you can also experiment with different flavors like white cheddar or pepperjack for that extra kick!
Now, it’s time to let your food personality shine. Be an unique as you want here. Top the pizza with your favorite veggies - artichokes, banana peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, the options are endless! When I made these pizzas, I used black and green olives, red peppers, mushrooms, and pineapple for a sweet kick.
Even though you don’t want to, let the pizzas cool for just a moment. Your tastebuds are precious and we don’t want to burn them off. After a couple minutes, cut your pizza however you want and enjoy!
