Prep: 10 minutes Cook: 10 minutes


Almost everyone knows how to put together a pizza without a recipe. It is possible to be very creative when preparing pizzas for yourself and others. You can start with a traditional red sauce, either homemade or store-bought pasta sauce, and layer favorite, healthy ingredients on top of that. Or you can try something a bit different and use a variety of mashed beans for the base with assorted vegetable on the top. Baking time is only about 10 minutes, so you can have dinner on the table very quickly.


  • 1 large Kabuli pizza crust
  • 3/4 cup fat-free pasta sauce
  • onion, chopped
  • bell pepper, chopped
  • button mushrooms, sliced
  • pineapple, chopped
  • broccoli, chopped
  • zucchini, sliced
  • artichoke hearts, chopped
  • Tofu Ricotta (recipe in Miscellaneous)


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spread sauce evenly over pizza crust. Layer on the toppings of your choice. Place on a baking tray and bake for about 10 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool slightly, then slice and enjoy.
