Broccoli, Mushroom, and Sun-Dried Tomato Pizza

Vegan Broccoli, mushroom, and dried tomato pizza

Using plenty of broccoli makes this easy pizza a nourishing meal. Serve a big salad with mixed greens and plenty of raw veggies, embellished with olives and chickpeas. Use as many of the shortcuts as you’d like, making this a super-quick preparation; I’ve provided from-scratch options for sauce and crust (even a gluten-free option!) for when you have more time.

Serves: 3 to 4

  • 2 1/2 cups bite-sized broccoli florets
  • 6 ounces baby bella (aka cremini) or portabella mushrooms,
    cleaned (remove stems if desired) and sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 tablespoon or so (at most) olive oil
  • One 12- to 14-inch good-quality pizza crust
    (or use the recipe for Basic Pizza Dough or 
    Gluten-Free Poured Pizza Crust
    )
  • 1/2 to 1 cup good-quality prepared marinara or pizza sauce
    (depending on size of crust and how tomato-y you like it,
    or homemade Fresh Tomato Marinara Sauce)
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups grated vegan mozzarella cheese (Daiya is great for this)
  • 1/3 cup moist, thinly sliced sun-dried tomatoes
    (oil-cured or not, as you prefer)
  • Several basil leaves, thinly sliced, optional

Preheat the oven to 425º F.

Line roasting pan with baking parchment or oil it lightly. Arrange the broccoli and mushrooms in it and drizzle with olive oil, stirring together. Bake for 5 minutes.

Place the crust on a pizza pan. spread the sauce evenly over it, followed by the cheese. Put in the oven, and when you do so, give the broccoli and mushroom mixture a stir and continue to let it roast while the pizza bakes.

Bake the pizza and veggies for 12 minutes longer. The bottom of the pizza crust should be golden and starting to get crisp, and the cheese melted. The veggies should be nicely done — starting to brown here and there.

Remove the pizza and vegetables from the oven. Cut the pizza into 6 wedges with a pizza wheel or sharp bread knife. Pile the vegetables onto the pizza, followed by the dried tomatoes and optional basil. Serve at once.

Variation: Make this a white pizza by replacing the red sauce with pureed silken tofu — you’ll need about half of a 12.3-ounce box.

    Thanks Laura! I hope you will enjoy it. And thanks for the eagle eye — there was indeed a typo in the SEO title tab, and now it’s fixed.

    I would so much more convenient if you could include nutritional info. Took me 10 min or so to calculate it.
    The whole pizza is about 1100 Cal.

    Hi Jay, a lot of readers have asked for nutritional stats. However, with thousands of recipes, it would be prohibitive in terms of time and cost to analyze all of them. I’m hoping to install a widget that will allow readers to do the calculations on the spot. I would really appreciate it if you could let me know what program you used? Wow, 1,100 calories divided by 6 slices (or even 4) — really low calorie per serving! I’m glad to know that …
