Summer Vegetable Pizza

This pizza is quick, easy, delicious, and a great way to make use of the summer produce.  You can play with the measurements and ingredients to make use of whatever cheese and vegetables you happen to have on hand.  We seem to use a slightly different combination of vegetables (depending on what we have on hand) each time, but it’s always really good.

1 refrigerated pre-made pizza crust
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 – 4 garlic cloves, pressed or chopped (we use 4 because we love garlic)
Italian Seasoning
Salt & Pepper
1 onion, thinly sliced
Squash and/or Zucchini, sliced
Tomatoes, sliced
Shredded Cheese

Roll the crust out on a bar pan or cookie sheet.  If you’re using a well seasoned pan you don’t need to oil the bottom, if not you’ll want to oil the bottom of your pan.  Mix garlic cloves into olive oil and spread over crust.  Sprinkle with Italian Seasoning and Parsley.  

Bake at 350 for 8 – 11 minutes.

Sprinkle cheese over the crust.  It’s really good if you use a mix of cheddar and mozzarella.  Then layer on your vegetables.  Sprinkle the veggies with Italian Seasoning, parsley, salt and pepper to taste.  Layer on some more cheese. 

Bake at 350 for 15 – 18 minutes.



  1. Love veggie pizza! Here's a recipe we love, you might like it too:
    I make this once a week!

    1. That recipe looks great! It's on my list to try now.

  2. That sounds so good! I'll have to give it a try when I find some motivation to do more than boil water :)

    1. It's really good, and very easy - not much more work than boiling water is. :-)

  3. mmmmm this looks amazing, danielle!!!! love veggie anything :)

  4. Oh yum! My usual go to during the summer is quiche or frittatas and do pretty much the same thing. Whatever we have a little extra of or laying around gets tossed in so it's different each time. Will have to give this a try for some variety :) thanks for the idea!!


    1. Mmm, quiche and frittatas are so good! This is really quick and easy - doesn't have to bake as long as a quiche, so it's great when you're in a hurry.
