Vegetarian Pizzas

Having a vegetarian meal a couple times a week is great! Here are a few of mine and my family’s favorite recipes! I got all these recipes from Vegetarian Times.

Here are 3 of my favorite pizza recipes:

Grilled Salad Pizza-

1. One Chewy pizza dough-(I substituted the dough with a gluten-free crust. You can make any modifications you would like with the dough.) Recipe: http://www.vegetariantimes.com/recipes/11105?section=

2. 3 tbs. Grated parmesan cheese

3. 1 cup of arugula

4. 1 cup of sliced romaine lettuce

5. 1 head of red endive

6. 1/2 cup of thinly sliced fresh fennel

7. 1/4 cup of thinly sliced red onion

8. Top off with shaved parmesan cheese

Vinaigrette-

2 tbs. of balsamic vinegar

2 tsp. of honey

1 tsp. of dijon mustard

1 clove of garlic, minced

3 tbs. of olive oil

To Make Vinaigrette:

1. Whisk together vinegar, honey, mustard, and garlic. Whisk in oil, and season with salt and pepper, if desired. Let rest 30 minutes.

To Make Pizza:

1. Prepare Chewy Pizza Dough, and sprinkle with grated Parmesan. Place pizza on middle rack in oven, and preheat oven to 350°F with pizza in oven. Once oven reaches 350°F, bake 25 minutes, or until bottom is crisp and brown. Remove from oven, and adjust setting to broil.

2. Brush crust with 3 Tbs. Vinaigrette. Toss arugula, lettuce, endive, fennel, and onion with remaining Vinaigrette. Top pizza with arugula mixture, and place under broiler 2 to 3 minutes, or until greens begin to wilt. Serve garnished with Parmesan curls.

Above I copy and pasted the recipe from off Vegetarian Time’s website. Here is the link to the actual recipe: http://www.vegetariantimes.com/recipes/11112
