Homemade Veggie Pizza

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on May 27, 2009

Ingredients
1 cup plus 2 Tbsp warm water
1 tsp olive oil ($.03)
1 cup whole wheat flour ($.20)
2 cups white flour ($.28)
1 packet or 1 Tbsp yeast ($.25)
1 tsp sugar ($.02)
1 tsp Italian seasonings ($.05)
1 green pepper ($.68)
1 small yellow squash ($.54)
1/2 onion ($.15)
1/2 cup olive oil salad dressing ($.25)
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese ($1.50)
2 apples ($.50)

Directions
1. Prepare dough in bread machine, by adding the water, olive oil, flours, yeast, sugar and seasonings in that order to the bread machine. Set cycle to dough.
2. Slice green pepper, squash and onion into “pizza topping” sizes.
3. Once dough cycle is completed, remove dough and place on floured surface. Knead and roll out with floured roller to fit onto pizza pan. (I used my 16″ pizza baking stone.)

4. Spread olive oil dressing over the pizza dough. (You could certainly use pizza sauce, but it didn’t sound appetizing to me tonight!) Top with shredded mozzarella and then place sliced veggies over the cheese. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes.
5. Slice apples.
6. Serve Homemade Veggie Pizza with sliced apples.

Cost $4.55

I love making pizza – it is my go-to recipe on a busy day. I keep extra dough and homemade sauce to make it quick & easy. I’ve never tried squash on pizza but it looks great!

What is the olive oil dressing? I mean, how do you make that? This pizza is going to be made in our home this Friday! ; )

Wow – we must have been synced our brains somehow. I made pizza tonight for dinner – but with gluten-free crust (so not quite $5 meal) AND I served it with apples. Almost exactly as pictured above. We love our pizza nights and I love that I can make two, and freeze one up for later!

Pizza is always great-I save leftover bacon,sausage and small slices of ham from breakfast in frezzer and then I use olive oil 1-2T sautee onion,greenpepper,mushrooms-remove from pan make milk gravy for my sauce.
Use what ever crust or biscuit mix for crust-Top with gravy,meat and veggies if I Like I scramble 1-2 eggs and top with my favorite cheese. Bake til cheese melted at 350
Good for Breakfast, lunch or dinner with fruit
