Ingredients

  • 1 pack of Trader Joe's or Whole Foods' Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
  • 1/2 yellow summer squash or zucchini
  • 3 pearl tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp feta cheese (leave out if vegan)
  • Salt + pepper to taste

For pesto:

  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/3 cup olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425F and remove dough from fridge (let sit at room temperature while you prep the other ingredients)
  • Add pesto ingredients to a food processor and mix until smooth
  • Slice squash and tomatoes into 1/4 - 1/2 inch rounds
  • Roll dough following package instructions; place rolled out dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet BEFORE adding toppings (or else it'll be very tricky to move the dough!!)
  • Spread pesto onto dough, leaving space on the edges for the crust
  • Top pesto with veggies, sprinkle feta, add a few basil leaves, salt + pepper
  • Bake in oven for about 6-8 minutes until ready. Slice into 6-8 pieces.
