🔪 How To Make Veggie Supreme Pizza
Here is how to make this veggie supreme pizza:
Preheat & Prepare Pan: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (or, depending on which type of pizza dough you’re using, follow the directions for the dough – could be anywhere from 350-450 degrees F). Line a round baking sheet or pizza pan with parchment paper. Alternatively, use a pizza stone.
Roll Dough & Bake: Roll pizza dough on a clean countertop or large cutting board. Place on the prepared baking tray. Bake for 5-8 minutes.
Add Sauce: Spread a layer of tomato sauce over the cooked pizza base.
Add Toppings: Top with sliced mushrooms, green peppers, red onion, tomatoes and olives. Place the sliced fresh mozzarella cheese on top of the pizza along with some fresh basil leaves.
Cook: Cook the pizza in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until the toppings have cooked and the base is crunchy. Alternatively, bake in a pizza oven for a bolder flavor.
Slice & Serve: Remove pizza from the heat, top with more fresh basil leaves, let cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes, slice into 8 equal portions and serve.
💭 Expert Tips
- Crust Thickness: Pizza crust can be rolled thin to create a thin and crispy base or rolled a little thicker to have a softer, fluffier base. For a veggie supreme pan pizza, bake in a cast iron skillet or cake pan.
- Crispy Crust: Pre-cooking the pizza base helps to create the best crust for your veggie supreme pizza. Alternatively, you can just top the pizza and cook it altogether in the oven – you’ll just have to bake it for about 15 minutes total, and your crust may not be as crispy.
- Be Mindful of Toppings: Do not overload the pizza with toppings as this will leave excess moisture in the dough, resulting in a soggy pizza.
- For Seasoned Veggies: Add all veggie toppings to a large bowl and mix with olive oil and seasoning for extra flavor in this supreme pizza recipe.
- Even Cooking: Slice the raw vegetables thinly to ensure even cooking.
- Various Cooking Methods: You can choose your preferred method for cooking your pizza, whether that be in the regular oven or a pizza oven like an Ooni. Be sure to have a pizza peel if cooking in a pizza oven.
- Pesto Supreme Pizza: Trade in the marinara sauce for a delicious and fresh pesto on this pizza! Try out my easy pesto without pine nuts for a tasty vegan option.
- Spicy Veggie Supreme Pizza: To spice it up a little add a sprinkle of dried red pepper flakes, chopped calabrian peppers, or other spicy red peppers.
- Flavored Crust: Brush the crush of this vegetarian pizza with olive oil and sprinkle on spices like salt and black pepper, garlic powder, oregano, or Italian seasoning blend.
🍽 Serving Suggestions
This vegetarian supreme pizza is perfect on its own but you might prefer to serve it with other dishes for a heartier meal. Try it out with a fresh salad like this keto Greek salad or make it cozier with a bowl of vegan minestrone soup on the side. If you want a filling Italian dinner, pair the pizza with a vegan pasta primavera or tofu pasta.
🙌 Dietary Adaptations
This meatless supreme pizza is vegetarian and soy free! If you have certain dietary needs, check out some of the suggestions below:
- Low Calorie Option: Use my favorite low calorie pizza dough to create a delicious and healthy pizza base!
- Vegan Option: Swap the mozzarella for a plant-based option to make this a vegan supreme pizza. My favorite brands are Violife, Miyoko’s, Daiya, or Follow Your Heart.
- Gluten Free Option: Use a gluten free crust in place of the pizza dough. All the supreme pizza ingredients are naturally gluten free. Banza makes a tasty pre-made chickpea crust.
- Keto Option: Use my keto marinara and a keto-friendly pizza dough to keep this recipe low carb.
Here is how to store and keep this supreme veggie pizza:
To Store In The Fridge: Allow leftover pizza to cool to room temperature, then store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. Additionally, the pizza dough base can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge, covered in plastic wrap, for up to 2 days before rolling and cooking. You can also roll and cook the base and keep it covered and stored in the fridge for up to 4 days before topping and cooking.
To Freeze: You can freeze the pizza topped with ingredients and ready to go next time you want pizza. Keep covered and frozen, stored in the freezer for up to 1 month.
To Reheat: Place frozen pizza on a baking sheet and heat in the oven at 350 F. Cook the pizza for 10-15 minutes or until the pizza toppings have cooked and the base is golden brown. If you are simply reheating leftover pizza that has been fully cooked already, heat in the toaster oven (or the microwave, but your pizza will become soft vs. crispy once warm).
A supreme pizza is traditionally topped with a mix of meat and vegetables, including a variety of 3 meats, mushrooms, onions, and green bell peppers. The Pizza Hut supreme pizza has pepperoni, pork, and beef, while others may have meatballs and sausage.
If you’re wondering what veggies are on a supreme pizza, it is standard to use mushrooms, green peppers, and onions. You will also find mozzarella cheese and basil on this pizza. From there, it can be enhanced with other veggies like olives and tomatoes. In this recipe, kalamata olives are used instead of traditional black olives for an extra boost of flavor and savory goodness.
Yes! Thanks to the nutrient rich veggie supreme pizza toppings, this is a healthy choice for lunch or dinner.
Vegetables like onions, bell peppers, and tomatoes are loaded with vitamins like vitamin C and vitamin A. Mushrooms help promote a healthy gut and provide an excellent source of vitamin D!
However, be mindful of the dough and sauce that you use as this is where there is potential for unhealthy ingredients. Look for a dough with limited ingredients and a sauce without added sugar. If you do plan to buy a store bought pizza sauce, try brands like Rao’s, Primal Kitchen, or Muir Glen.
In a traditional supreme pizza slice, like one from Pizza Hut, you will find around 309 calories per slice. But our healthier veggie supreme pizza is only about 150 calories per slice, and can be customized further to match your desired caloric intake!
