Jeff’s Lazy Pizza

\For years our family has had a dinner ritual saved for those last minute, winging it nights. We always keep a frozen pizza and fresh veggies on hand… So why not combine the two to make a quick & healthy snack or dinner?  With Jeff’s magical spin on it, our family pizza is super flavorful and one of the most popular meals he now makes. Jeff’s Lazy Pizza is our go-to.

With so many of you asking if we would share the recipe after Jeff made it during an Instagram story one night we decided to add it to the blog. Even after years and years of eating this pizza, we never get sick of it! Perfect for anyone who has kids and wants to trick them into enjoying vegetables (I love how you have to “trick” kids sometimes!) or a working parent with limited time in the evenings to spend all night cooking away. 

Look below for Jeff’s ‘rocket science method’ to making the best last minute pizza.!  ;) 


Make sure to take the seeds out of all peppers you chop! Otherwise you might have a spicy surprise.. unless you’re like Emma and Jeff and live for the classic mouth-burning flavor. 


Newman’s Own is one of our favorite companies because they donate 100% of all profits to charity! Whenever we need something that is sold from Newman’s, we make sure to pick this brand over the others.

    1. Thanks Kristen, I’m so glad Jeff thought of this. I love pizza and now I can eat it without feeling so guilty.. the veggies fill you up so much, you can’t eat more than 2 pieces!


  1. Thanks for sharing what may seem like a “duh” recipe but isn’t! I have tried to add extras to frozen pizza without success over the years or ended up with soggy pizza- ugh! Will give this a try.

  2. This looks amazing! I will be making this for dinner on Friday! Awesome idea Jeff! Thank you for sharing Kristy ! Love your blog ❤️

  3. This looks amazing. I will try this brand. We do love Trader Joe’s Margarita pizza.
    But love vegetables and Pepperoni.
