Homemade veggie pizza

Since many days my husband S. had been pestering me about making pizza. He loves pizza and since we didn’t have it for a while I decided to make it last weekend. I learnt making pizza from my dad who is just amazing in making it. Mine is not that good as his but I keep trying.

Makes 2-3 pizzas.


- 3 ½ cups flour (I use unbleached white flour)
- 2 packets active-dry yeast
- about 2 cups lukewarm water ( you may need to use more or less depending on flour)
- 2 Tbsp. sugar
- 6 Tbsp. olive oil
- 2 Tsp. salt
- 1 cup tomato puree
- ½ cup tomato paste
- 1 red bell pepper, chopped or any other colour
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 medium zucchini, sliced or chopped
- 1 tomato, chopped
- 1 cup black olives
- 1 ½ cup grated cheese
- Salt to taste
- Ground black pepper to taste
- Oregano to taste


In a bowl mix flour, active dry-yeast, salt and sugar. Add the olive oil and mix. Then add the water and knead well to make a smooth dough. Form a ball and cover the dough. Leave to rise in a warm place for about one hour or till doubled in size.
Preheat oven to 400 F/ 200 C.
Take the dough on a smooth surface and knead again. Divide into 2 parts or 3 parts if making smaller pizzas. Roll out on a with flour dusted surface. Grease a baking sheet or a round pizza tray and place the dough on it. Make sure it is spread evenly.
Mix tomato puree with tomato paste, salt, black pepper and oregano. Spread onto the dough and distribute the vegetables on it. Finally spread the cheese over it and bake for 15-20 minutes.

You can use any other vegetable you like for this pizza.
