Best Veggie Pizza Toppings

Is there such a thing as the best veggie pizza toppings? Meh! But if you love vegetables or want to incorporate more veggies into your diet, adding them to your pizza sound like a good idea. While you can add any vegetable to a pizza pie, some don’t belong. Peas, for example, should not be put on a pizza. Peas and carrots on a pizza? Eww, who are you? Unless you make an empanada pizza, I don’t want to see peas and carrots on your pie.

If you want to spruce up your pizza, use toppings such as:

  • Mushrooms
  •  Peppers
  •  Olives
  •  Onions
  •  Zucchini
  •  Squash
  •  Eggplant
  •  Spinach
  •  Potatoes
  •  Broccoli
  •  Arugula
  •  Romain lettuce

If you add arugula or Romain lettuce to your pizza, do it at the end, when the pizza is finished. I love a good chicken Caesar slice or two. It makes me feel like I’m tricking my eyes into thinking I’m eating something healthy.

When it comes to choosing the best veggie pizza toppings, it all depends on your preferences. If you don’t love them, don’t add them. But you should be open-minded and try at least one veggie pie once in a blue moon. Slowly, I’m getting my veggie-hater to try a bite or two. He ever tried pineapple and sausage pizza! 

If you’re thinking broccoli, no way. Give it a shot! What about a mac and cheese pizza with broccoli? Or just broccoli and cheddar cheese! Maybe grill or sauté the broccoli first. I love Alfredo pasta with chicken and broccoli so why not make a pizza with those toppings as well. If eggplant parmesan is your jam, add it to your pizza! Have you tried spinach dip? How about a creamy spinach dip pie! Why not?

While nothing beats a nice plain cheese pie, adding a veggie or two once in a while wouldn’t hurt.
