Pizzas

Preheat the oven and bake all pizzas as per pizza crust package directions, except for the personal pan pizzas – see cooking instructions for same below.

Healthy Tip: instead of buying expensive, sugar-laden commercialized pizza sauces,  buy a jar of unsweetened spaghetti sauce; leftovers can be used later in the week for children’s lunches or suppers or it can be frozen for later. 

Budget Tip: if you really like pepperoni, grind it in a food processor!  It seems as if there is way more pepperoni when it is ground and sprinkling it over the whole pizza gives you pepperoni flavor with every bite.  You can sprinkle some with slices or just grind it all. 

Children’s Classic Pepperoni Pizza

Sammys pizza

  • homemade or prepared multigrain/whole wheat pizza crust
  • unsweetened spaghetti sauce (I like basil flavor)
  • vegetarian pepperoni slices
  • extra ground veggie pepperoni slices for sprinkling (optional)
  • Daiya cheddar and/or mozzarella shreds

Paul’s Pizza (aka “The Works”)

This is a classic, loaded pizza.  Feel free to add whatever other ingredients you can think of to personalize it!

Pauls pizza

  • homemade or prepared multigrain/whole wheat pizza crust
  • unsweetened spaghetti sauce (I like basil flavor)
  • garlic, minced
  • ground vegetarian pepperoni, or slices
  • red pepper, sliced
  • red onion, thinly sliced
  • sautéed mushrooms
  • green olive slices
  • Daiya cheddar and/or mozzarella shreds
  • Freshly ground salt & pepper to taste
  • additional topping ideas: green peppers, vegan sausage slices, Yves Italian flavor ground round, bacon-flavor tempeh, baby spinach, veggie ham slices, pineapple, tomato slices, BBQ sauce, veggie chicken strips, caramelized onions

Mexican Salsa

This pizza came about when we ran out of sauce and couldn’t be bothered to run to the store for more.  We also had left over roasted sweet peppers and red onion in the fridge but you can substitute fresh veggies if needed.

Mexican Salsa Pizza3

  • homemade or prepared multigrain/whole wheat pizza crust
  • salsa – your favorite brand, mild, medium or hot
  • sundried tomatoes
  • baby kale
  • ground vegetarian pepperoni
  • roasted yellow pepper slices
  • roasted red onion slices
  • sautéed mushrooms
  • green olive slices
  • Daiya cheddar and/or mozzarella shreds
  • Freshly ground salt & pepper to taste

Julie’s Personal Pan Pizzas

Thin crust, personal-sized pizzas!  Bake tortilla pizzas at the same temperature as the regular crusts but only for six (6) minutes.

Nutrient Boost: If you need to be aware of your calcium intake, these hummus/tahini sauces are an excellent way to boost your calcium intake; add baby kale and you have a calcium-rich pizza that trumps any dairy cheese pizza.
