Grilled Vegetable Pita Pizza

This vegetarian pita bread recipe combines two great favorites – grilling and pizza. It is a wonderful Greek style pizza that is simple and easy to make.

If you want to produce a quick and easy appetizer, or a great main course, this pita pizza is a wonderful choice.

Choose a softer pita, instead of some of the leatherier types, for the best results, and don’t over grill, or the pizza may become tough. Switch the vegetables around and choose whatever you have on hand or whatever you prefer. It is amazing what you can do with simple ingredients like this. If you want a grilled pizza the whole family will love without a whole lot of work, this is the recipe for you.

Ideal for vegetarians, or even vegans if you use a vegan-friendly kind of cheese, this pizza fuses Italian and Greek cuisines together to bring you an amazing result. These 2 Mediterranean countries share a lot of history and also have similar dishes in their cuisines. The feta cheese adds a Greek flavor while the mozzarella is more Italian, and the tomato and onion are popular in both cuisines. The fresh mint adds an unusual touch and makes a change from the more commonly used pizza herbs oregano and basil. Continue reading

Vegetable Pizza with Crescent Rolls Recipe

This is a fun vegetable pizza that everyone will love, from grownups down to the kids. Lots of cold vegetable pizza with crescent rolls recipes use cream cheese and dill, but this one adds in sour cream, for an even better taste. Combine that with mayonnaise, dill spread and garlic and you have got a great special occasion appetizer.

Cover the spread with assorted vegetables of your choice (some are suggested below) and sprinkle with your favorite shredded cheese for a real taste treat. You and your family will love this easy cold pizza made with simple ingredients and very little cooking.

The crescent dough is easy to roll out to make a pizza crust, and if this is your first time using it to make a pizza rather than making crescent rolls, you will be pleased how simple it is.

Delicious Panini with Grilled Vegetables

This is a fast panini recipe with grilled vegetables that goes together fast but still tastes great. Use a take and bake type of ciabatta bread for the best results. It adds a little to the prep time, but the improved taste is worth it. Of course, if you are pressed for time, any ordinary ciabatta or other flat bread will work well, too.

Like many other panini recipes, this one is best if you serve it right away, although it is still pretty good cold. Do not skimp on the quality of your ingredients – fresh mozzarella is better, as are good quality vegetables. Make it right, and you will certainly taste the difference. If you are looking for a vegetarian option that is not boring, this one is an excellent choice.

Although we are moving away from the classic pizza recipe quite a lot and stretching the definition of ‘pizza’ to perhaps its absolute limit, if a pizza teams a crust with toppings then this does fit the description of pizza, except the crust goes either side of the topping (or ‘filling’ as it technically is instead).

Cold Vegetable Pizza with Dill

Cold vegetable pizza is a common sight at family gatherings and social events. It is easy to prepare, and a lot more interesting than a plain old veggie tray. This quick and easy appetizer is one that almost everyone enjoys, and one of the nice things is that it can be changed to suit the contents of your fridge. While broccoli, carrots, and cauliflower are the most popular, there are many other options that work, including sweet onions, tomatoes and more.

Unlike some other cold vegetable pizza recipes, this one includes dill, which prevents the pizza from being bland. Try preparing everything in advance, including prebaking the crust, making the topping, and chopping all vegetables. That will result in quick assembly and a more flavorful sauce, since the flavors have been allowed to mingle. Do not assemble the pizza early, though. The sauce can make the crust soggy if they are in contact for too long.

Some cold pizzas are just the leftovers of hot ones. Some of us will enjoy cold pizza for breakfast the following morning after ordering or making one, while others will have it cold for lunch. Continue reading
