Vegetable Pizza

It’s a Snappy appetizer.

Vegetable pizza is a snazzy appetizer, snack, or side dish for any event or meal. You can make your crust ahead of time or fix it that day. This recipe makes two large cookie trays, so if you don’t need that large a serving, put the rest into the freezer for a later time.

If you’re pushed for time, you can use crescent rolls or dough sheets. I like to make my own crust because I know exactly what is in it, so I am sharing this crust recipe, which comes from my sister Alice. She is known for her vegetable pizza (as well as many other tasty dishes).


For the toppings, you can add whatever you prefer. I use a food chopper for the cauliflower and broccoli, and a shredder for carrots. You can add onions, bacon (fried and crumbled), cucumbers, tomatoes, and/or celery. This vegetable pizza is a good way to use squash or zucchini; if it’s chopped small enough, folks won’t even notice it. Once you’ve added all your vegetables, top with shredded cheddar cheese. You can use mozzarella cheese if you’d like. You get to choose the vegetables and the cheese that your family likes best.

Vegetable Toppings

After the crust is baked and cooled, spread the filling over the crust. You can make the crust a day ahead and then, when you’re ready to serve, adding the toppings will be quick and easy. Once the filling is on the crust, add your vegetables and your cheese. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
