Recipe: Sauteed Mushroom & Zucchini Pizza

Author: DaisyChubb | Filed under: Recipes

It’s time for another pizza recipe! After giving my bread machine a small hiatus, I’ve made 2 loaves of bread in the past 2 days and need some more pizza dough! What better time than to haul out this version!

(As you can see in the back, Michael went for a pepperoni & avocado version)


This is a simple recipe – it starts with some fresh ingredients – read: veggies! Then you sautee up some mushrooms and onions for a sweet and caramelized touch to an already delicious set of ingredients, which takes it over the top!


As usual, you are welcome to add any fresh ingredients you have hanging around for this pizza. I happened to have avocado and some tomato! Creamy and crunchy and fresh! Yum!


Did you know – making your own pizza is a fraction of the cost of ordering, and is 100% more delicious and much better for you? You probably knew that. Just reminding 😉


Homemade Sauteed Mushroom & Zucchini Pizza



1/2 a Zucchini, sliced

4 tbsp Pizza sauce

Sauteed Mushrooms

Sauteed Onions

Other veggies that tickle your fancy

Shredded Cheese

Cornmeal (optional)


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Sprinkle with Cornmeal (this is optional – but I love the crunch it gives the crust and adds a bit of sweetness!). Split dough into two chunks, or not if you’re making one big pizza, and gently stretch and pull the dough until it’s the size you want it. Try to get it as thin as possible without breaking! That will ensure your crust is crunchy and cooks all the way through.

Spread about 2 tbsp pizza sauce on each pizza (or 4 tbsp for one) and top with the above/your favourite toppings. Finally sprinkle with cheese and pop into the oven!

Bake about 15 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbly. If you have tons of toppings, it may take more time. Just keep an eye on it.

Let rest 5 minutes, slice and eat! Just try and save some for leftovers – it’s basically impossible.



Nothing like a drizzle of Ranch!
