Roasted Vegetable Pizza with Goat Cheese

Giving up meat for Lent?  Don’t know what to cook? Try this earthy, rich, delicious pizza.  I promise you won’t miss the meat.

 

 

 

What to use

1 large zucchini (sliced)

1 Eggplant (sliced)

1 Red Bell Pepper (sliced thickly)

1 Yellow Bell Pepper (sliced thickly)

1 small red onion (cut into wedges)

3 garlic cloves (peeled)

4 tbs olive oil

1 tbs red wine vinegar

2 tbsp chopped thyme

tomato sauce (See recipe below)

3 oz goat cheese

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

pizza dough (click here for recipe)

 

 

What to do

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Line a baking tray with parchment paper and lay out vegetables.  Mix together oil, vinegar, thyme, salt and pepper and pour over vegetables.  Toss together and roast  for 20 minutes. Remove and set aside.

roasted vegetables

While vegetables are roasting, prepare tomato sauce.  You will need:-

2 tbs olive oil

1 small white onion

1 garlic clove

1 can chopped tomatoes

2 tbs chopped fresh parsley

1 tsp dried oregano

2 bay leaves

2 tbsp tomato paste

1 tsp sugar

salt and pepper

What to do

Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat, add the onion and saute until translucent. Add the garlic and saute for a further minute.  Add the tomatoes, parsley, oregano, bay leaves, tomato paste, sugar, salt and pepper to taste.

Bring the sauce to boil, then simmer, uncovered for 15 – 20 minutes or until the sauce has been reduced by half.  Discard the bay leaves before serving.  Unused sauce can be bottled and refrigerated for about a week.

Roll out pizza dough and spread with tomato sauce.  I didn’t feel like mixing the dough tonight so I used naan bread in place of the pizza dough. You can use a flat bread of your choice or even a tortilla.

Lay out the vegetables and top with goat cheese.  Bake at 400 degrees until dough is crisp and golden (about 20 minutes).
