Veggie pizza a family favorite that’s easily made

  • TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

    Veggie pizza is a meal the whole family will love, and it takes less time to make than sending out for one.

Here’s a vegetarian pizza the whole family will love, and it takes less time than sending out for one.

I used a whole-wheat flour tortilla as the base for this quick pizza, but any type can be used. Make sure it is about 10 inches in diameter. The tortilla provides an ultra-thin crust, allowing the toppings to be featured.

The vegetables can be sliced in a food processor fitted with a slicing blade, but for speedy preparation, look for sliced or diced vegetables in the grocery produce department or on a salad bar.

Any type of vegetables can be used for the pizza. Use the amounts in the recipe as a guideline.

VEGGIE PIZZA

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 small eggplant, sliced, (about 2 cups)
  • 1 medium onion, sliced (about 2 cups)
  • 1 medium zucchini, sliced, (about 2 cups)
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, sliced, (about 2 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 10-inch whole-wheat flour tortillas
  • 1 cup bottled reduced-sodium pizza sauce (any brand)
  • 1 cup shredded, part-skim milk mozzarella cheese

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet, large enough to hold the 2 tortillas, with foil and place in oven while it is heating.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add eggplant, onion, zucchini and bell pepper. Sprinkle with oregano and salt and pepper. Saute 5 minutes.

Place tortillas on baking sheet in oven for 1 to 2 minutes, until golden and crisp. Remove sheet from oven.

Spread pizza sauce over tortillas and top with sauteed vegetables. Place shredded mozzarella over vegetables. Return sheet to oven for 5 minutes, until the mozzarella melts. Serves 2.
