Vegetable Pizza

A one-stop way to get your vegetable servings for the day! Just one serving of this lowfat pizza provides approximately 3 - 4 vegetable servings, using a variety of different veggies. This version of pizza is easy to make and tastes yummy too.

8 oz. Fresh mushrooms, halved
2 cups Broccoli flowerets
1 Medium onion, sliced or chopped
1/2 Large green pepper, cut in strips
1/2 Large red pepper, cut in strips
2 Medium tomatoes
8 oz. Pizza sauce (Look for one with 0 fat; we used Contadina)
2 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup Fat-free mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 Package lowfat pizza crust mix for a 12" to 14" pizza (We used Martha White brand.)

Prepare crust according to package directions. Bake at 475 degrees for 5 minutes. Saute onions in saucepan over low to medium heat, stirring constantly until slightly browned. Add mushrooms, peppers, and broccoli; continue cooking until vegetables begin to soften. Cut tomato into pieces and add to other vegetables; cook for a couple of minutes until vegetables are tender. If there is liquid in vegetable mixture, drain it off and save for future cooking use.

Spread pizza sauce on partially cooked crust. Spread drained vegetables over pizza sauce. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over vegetables and top with mozzarella cheese.

Finish baking pizza according to crust directions, which will probably be about 10 minutes.
