Vegetarian pizza

Who doesn’t love pizza? It’s so easy to just make a vegetarian (or even vegan) pizza. This is one of our weekly guilty pleasures…

We buy the homemade bases from an Italian deli, but you can easily make them yourself, or just buy them at your local supermarket.

makes: 1 pizza
prep time: 5 min
cook time: 10 min
total time: 15 min


  • 1 pizza base
  • tomato passata
  • shredded (vegan) cheese
  • 1 tomato
  • 1/2 red onion
  • black pitted olives
  • capers
  • 1/4 red capsicum
  • rocket salad
  • Other add on ideas… nutritional yeast, zucchini, pine nuts, ricotta, spinach


Our microwave has a pizza option, which is simply fantastic. But you can use your oven – just preheat to 220 degrees Celcius.

Slice up all the vegies.

Take the pizza base and add about 5 tablespoons of passata. Divide over the pizza base, but leave about 3-4 cm around the edges.

Sprinkle some (vegan) shredded cheese and top with all the vegies, olives, capers and which ever other add ons you want to use.

Place the pizza in the microwave or oven for about 10-11 minutes until crisp.

Buon appetito!
