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.
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.
Look below for Jeff’s ‘rocket science method’ to making the best last minute pizza.! ;)
Cheers and bon appétit!
Jeff’s Lazy Pizza
Serves up to 3 people
1 Newman’s Own pepperoni Thin & Crispy Pizza Frozen
(our favorite for the crispy crust and because they donate 100% of profits to charity… NOT sponsored)
1 1/2 Bell pepper – Type/Color your choice
1/2 Poblano pepper
1 1/2 cups broccoli florets
1/4 White onion
1 garlic clove minced
1 1/2 Tbs Balsamic vinegar
Salt, pepper and olive oil to taste
Pre-heat oven to 475°.
Note: I cook the pizza at a higher temperature due to the extra vegetable toppings
Bell pepper: Cut off both ends and remove the seeds. Slice into small rings and then chop into small pieces
Poblano pepper: Cut off both ends, slice in half and remove seeds. Dice 1/2 of the pepper into small pieces.
Broccoli florets: Remove stems and dice into small pieces
Onion: dice 1/4 of the onion into small pieces
*Combine chopped vegetables, minced garlic and balsamic vinegar in a bowl and mix thoroughly adding salt, pepper and olive oil to taste
*Drain any excess of liquid from the vegetable mixture and add to the top of the pizza. This is important as extra liquid can make the pizza soggy.
*Since the vegetables can drip liquid during the cooking process, I suggest placing a pizza or baking pan on the bottom shelf of the oven.
Place the pizza directly on the middle rack of your oven and set your timer for 20 minutes. Check pizza after 18 minutes as your cooking time will vary depending on your oven. Usually 18 to 22 minutes will work depending on how well done you like your crust
Remove the pizza from the oven, slice into six pieces and enjoy with your favorite beverage
We love this cool wooden bowl from Wayfair too!
