Homemade Pizza Topped With Hemp Seed Pesto, Summer Squash, Tomatoes & Feta
Healthy-ish pizza made with whole wheat dough, homemade pesto, and summer veggies - yes please! Making pizza at home is such a fun way to cook with your family or little ones, and it's a deliciously easy way to get those veggies in. Recipe makes approx. one 12-inch pizza.
Servings 12 inch pizza
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 Flour for rolling dough 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
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.
Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for a couple days and enjoyed cold as well!
