Meatless Monday : Green Goddess Pizza Recipe

It’s time for another Meatless Monday post!  So lately I’ve been looking for quick and easy dinner ideas.  Things have been so extremely busy in my jewelry studio that I haven’t had the time I usually put into cooking a dinner.  What I love about this Green Goddess Pizza recipe is not only is it quick and crazy easy to make but it’s delicious and loaded with greens!  Also instead of using a red sauce, I made a simple basil garlic sauce which adds nicely to the flavors of the fresh veggies.  Grab the recipe below.

Meatless Monday : Green Goddess Pizza Recipe

Time: 20 minutes or less!

Ingredients:

  • pre-made pizza crust – I used Mama Mary’s because it was diary free.

Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 3 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 paprika
  • pepper to taste

Toppings:

For this you can really add whatever you want! but here’s what I used:

  • small handful – baby spinach
  • 1/4 green peppers – thinly sliced
  • 1/4 zucchini – thinly sliced
  • 1/2 avocado – sliced

*I forgot to add some broccoli I had in the fridge, but I’m thinking artichokes and asparagus would be delicious too!

Instructions:

  1. preheat oven to 425′
  2. mix sauce ingredients together in the food processor
  3. brush sauce all over pizza crust including the edges (you’ll have extra sauce, just set this aside)
  4. pile on all veggies except avocado
  5. do an additional brushing of the sauce on top of the veggies
  6. place pizza in oven for about 8 minutes
  7. top with avocado and you’re ready to eat!

*I made an individual size pizza but it’s so easy to double or triple this recipe.  There’s enough sauce for three individual size pizzas or one large one.

5 Spring Recipes to Try

Spring is one of those times of year when you’re ready for lots of fresh produce but at the same time (since it can still be a little chilly) you’re not quite committed to chowing down on crisp salads just yet.  I think these 5 Spring recipes give you a good mix of both warm/soothing with some healthy options like Vegetarian Chili!  That will still keep you cozy during the beginning of Spring.  So now the only question is, are you ready to eat?
