Zucchini-Goat Cheese Pizza

Zucchini-Goat Cheese Pizza

Makes 1 10-inch pizza

30 minutes or fewer

Cheese pizza is a perennial veg favorite, but it often comes with a hefty calorie count. Here, goat cheese and thinly sliced veggies offer lighter alternatives to shredded mozzarella.
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil, divided
  • 8 oz. (½ pkg.) prepared refrigerated pizza dough
  • 1 3.5-oz. log goat cheese, thinly sliced or roughly chopped
  • 1 zucchini, peeled into thin strips
  • 1 small red bell pepper, cut into rings
  • 1 6-oz. can no-salt-added tomato paste
  • 2 Tbs. finely minced onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (2 tsp.)
  • 2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • ½ tsp. red wine or red wine vinegar

1. To make Pizza: Preheat oven to 450°F. Brush large baking sheet or pizza pan with 1 Tbs. oil. Spread pizza dough in prepared pan.

2. To make Sauce: Stir together all ingredients with fork in small bowl.

3. Spread Sauce on dough. Top with half of goat cheese. Spread zucchini strips over goat cheese, 
top with bell pepper rings, then remaining goat cheese. Drizzle with remaining 1 Tbs. oil. Bake 10 to 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Cool 10 minutes, then cut into 6 slices.

All processed ingredients, from the artificial goats' cheese log to tomato paste and possibly the prepared pizza dough! These are all things that can be made at home!

This is one of the best vegetarian pizzas we've tried.

I don't like goat or feta cheese. I thought I would try a vegan cheese. Anyone done this yet with any luck? I want something that melts well. What did you use?

My wife and I have made this recipe every week since it was published! We've even added Tofurky "Vegan" Italian Sausage for protein and it tastes like something you would get at a high end artesian pizzeria. WOW!
