Ingredients

You’ll need a handful of ingredients to make this gluten-free veggie pizza:

Wild mushrooms, onions, kale, and garlic: What’s a veggie pizza without the veggies? The mushrooms are the star here.

Mushrooms are one of my favorite foods ever. If I could eat only five foods for the next month, mushrooms would be one of them. In fact, I love them so much that I once visited Italy during mushroom season so I could get my fill of fresh ones! 

Gluten-free pizza dough: Many stores sell this in the refrigerated or freezer section. You may find dough that you can shape yourself, or you may find dough that’s already in a circle.

Mozzarella, goat cheese, and Parmesan: I used a combination of cheeses in this gluten-free veggie pizza.

Step-by-step instructions

How to make this homemade pizza? First, preheat the oven to 375° Fahrenheit.

Then, place mushrooms in a small non-stick pan and add vegetable broth until just covered. Cook over medium-high heat until most of liquid is absorbed, about 3-4 minutes.

The key is to stir the mushrooms and cook until the liquid begins to thicken. Then you continue to cook, stirring, until it becomes pretty thick and that’s when you take the veggies off the burner. This adds additional flavor for very few calories.

Next, add kale to pan, along with a small amount of broth. Cook until most of liquid is absorbed and kale is tender, about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, place onions and garlic in a small non-stick pan.

Cook over medium-high heat until translucent, about 5-7 minutes.

Many people think you need lots of oil and sugar to accomplish this, but you actually don’t need either! It helps to slice the onions into thin slices. If you don’t have white or yellow onions, on hand, you can use red onions.

Continue to cook once liquid is absorbed; stir frequently as onions and garlic begin to brown. Place cooked vegetables aside.

Next, treat a large non-stick cookie sheet with spray oil. Cook pizza crust for 2 minutes. Remove, and top with mozzarella, onions, garlic, mushrooms, kale, goat cheese, Parmesan, and red pepper flakes.

This recipe makes eight servings, so it’s great for family pizza night. Or if you’re like me, you can make it for lunch and store the leftovers in the fridge.

I suggest serving a couple of slices with a side salad or some steamed or sautéed veggies to add even more greens to your meal.

If you’re wanting a side dish to go along with this homemade flatbread pizza, opt for a side salad portion of a chopped salad or a Mediterranean vegetable salad.
