Pizza

Let yourself be creative with toppings and flavors for these delicious vegetarian pizzas.
Portobello Pizzas

Portobello Pizzas

Giant portobello mushroom caps are the foundation for mini pizzas, packed with the same intense flavors as the standard pizza-parlor pie but minus the calories. 

Rustic Tomato Galette

Rustic Tomato Galette

This savory entreacute;e, inspired by rustic French freeform tarts, also serves nicely as an appetizer for as many as 10. The wholesome plant-oil crust tastes great, and the pastry is easy to work with. If it tears when you’re handling it, it’s a cinch to pinch it back together. Try it with a green bean and feta cheese salad.

Portobello Pizza with Fresh Mozzarella

Portobello Pizza with Fresh Mozzarella

Although portobello mushrooms, arugula and fresh mozzarella may make you think of a contemporary, upscale pizza, the taste of this pie is reminiscent of an old-fashioned pizza parlor.

Red Pepper Pizza

Red Pepper Pizza

Red peppers puréed with garlic and onion make a light, tangy alternative to the typical tomato pizza sauce. The cornmeal crust goes wonderfully with the pepper sauce and will keep up to 48 hours in the refrigerator.

Kale, Caramelized Onion, and Parmesan Pizza

Grad school student Ben Dixon makes this kale pizza every Sunday night for his family and his dog (“He seems to like it especially!”) while listening to A Prairie Home Companion on the radio. Dixon recommends cooking the crust on a pizza stone before adding the toppings. “This will make sure all of the crust is crisp and the pizza firm. Also drizzle plenty of olive oil over the whole pie before baking.”
