Pizza Potatoes

In this recipe, marinara sauce, melted vegan cheese, and simple steamed vegetables on a baked potato add up to an irresistible pizza-flavored vegetable dish. Potatoes make for a healthy “crust” that’s low in fat and naturally gluten-free. The kids will love this! Vary the vegetable toppings as you’d like. Try peppers, onions, artichokes, and other favorite pizza veggies. Photo by Rachael Braun.

Healthy Vegetarian Pizza Potatoes

Serves: 4 or more


  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • 2 cups broccoli, spinach, or mushrooms, finely chopped and lightly steamed
  • 1 cup marinara sauce, or more as needed
  • 1–1 1/2 cups mozzarella-style nondairy cheese, grated
  • dried oregano or basil


  1. Bake or microwave the potatoes until done. When cool enough to handle, cut each in half lengthwise. Fluff the inside of each potato half with a fork.
  2. Meanwhile, steam the mushrooms and broccoli in small skillet with a small amount of water until just tender, then drain.
  3. Spread about 2 tablespoons of pizza sauce on each potato half, followed by 2 to 3 tablespoons grated cheese. Top evenly with the steamed broccoli and mushrooms.
  4. Bake in a preheated 400°F oven for 10 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly. Serve at once.
