There are so many wonderful ingredients you can choose from if you want to make a truly mouthwatering vegetarian pizza – mushrooms, tomatoes, onion, spinach, zucchini, eggplant and bell peppers are just some of the toppings you might like to consider for your vegetarian grilled pizza recipes. When making grilled pizzas it is very important to ensure your grill grate is clean before you start, so the dough does not become flavored with whatever else you have been cooking on there.

You can halve the following recipe if you do not have so many people to feed. If you are making your own pizza dough and you make three pounds of it, you can dip each dough ball in a greased bowl and roll it around. Then put each ball of dough into a separate Ziploc bag and freeze it. Pizza dough will keep in the freezer for up to three months. Let them thaw in the refrigerator overnight before using them.

This pizza recipe features onion, mushrooms, garlic, spinach, oregano and more, for a complex flavor. Everything goes well together and this can be classed as a gourmet vegetarian pizza recipe because of the fresh ingredients and the amazing flavor of the finished pizza.

So Simple to Prepare

Making this pizza is very simple. You need to sauté the mushrooms first, and you will notice liquid coming out of them as they cook which is perfectly normal. This liquid will evaporate as they cook further, and then you can add some finely chopped garlic. Either chop it finely with a chef’s knife or mince it if you prefer. Some people like to cut it into very fine slices. Either way, the results will be similar, so just pick the preparation method you prefer.

Add some salt and black pepper to the mushroom mixture too, just to enhance the taste. When you have done that it is time to make the pizza crusts, and these can be cooked over a hot barbeque until they are crisp and just starting to turn golden brown.

Add some pizza sauce. This can be your favorite tomato sauce, either homemade or bought. Stick with a simple tomato sauce or use one which has added basil or oregano, or even a garlic and tomato sauce, as you prefer. The juicy mushroom mixture goes on next, followed by fresh spinach and mozzarella cheese. Fresh red onion, parmesan cheese and oregano go on next to finish the pizza off, and then you just need to barbeque it.

Nutritious and Colorful

You will have enough of each ingredient to make 4 pizzas, so this is a great recipe if you are going to feed a crowd. The mushrooms, red onion, garlic and spinach are fresh, so you can expect a nice, fresh result, but the oregano is dried which is fine for a pizza recipe. This is a full-flavored vegetable pizza recipe which offers plenty of nutrients from the veggies and an attractive, colorful look.
