Veggie Deluxe Pizza
You won’t miss the pepperoni! This Veggie Deluxe Pizza is topped with stretchy mozzarella and a medley of crisp veggies that bring on a ton of flavor.
No pepperoni, no problem!
We’ll admit it—a pizza without crispy pepperoni sounds dull. A pizza that swaps crispy pepperoni for handfuls of veggies sounds even more dull. And yet, somehow, this meatless veggie deluxe pizza is a total hit. Topped with crisp bell pepper, tangy red onions, juicy tomatoes, mushrooms, and black olives, this pizza offers enough flavor to forgive us on passing on the pep.
A meatless Monday must.
