Veggie Pizza Braid Recipe {With Video!}

A few months ago, I brought my 12 year old, Erica to a cooking show.  She watched the gals from Pantry Secrets make a “dessert braid” and literally went home and made her first braid that night.  Since the cooking show, she’s probably made them about 12 times, changing up the filling to suit her cravings!  She loves it and she got good at it really fast.  So, today after dance, I had her make a vegetable pizza braid recipe and she made it for us for dinner.   It is quick and easy to do!

First, we started with a regular bread recipe ( we did use the Pantry Secrets recipe), and let it rise for 30 minutes.

Then, she rolls the dough out and fills the center with marinara sauce, peppers, mushrooms, fresh tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese! These are per your preference so add what you like best!

Then, by slicing the sides into 1 inch thick sections, we have the dough ready to braid it.

Then, alternately cross the sections to the middle and overlap.

Then we put it in the oven at 350 for 25 minutes!

Great job Erica! My son Mason is a kid cook, too!

Susan says:

Time to find a YW Experience she can use with her work to learn and make the braid!

Netty says:

Showed the video to my daughter who LOVES to cook with me and she was VERY excited to try this recipe. Thanks for the video…it really helped to see the how to do the braid. 🙂

Elle says:

Amy, this looks fantastic. Thank you for the video as well.

I love the fact that you can change the recipe to suit your mood for each day based on what you decide to use for fillings. The possibilities are endless.

How long does the bread dough stay good in the fridge? I am thinking it would be a great thing to have on hand. Then you can whip together a quick braid at night for an easy dinner with a nice big salad.

Have you tried them for breakfast yet? I am wondering if that might be a possibility too.

Amy says:

Thanks Kathy- Does Mason have any videos we can watch?

Amy says:

Good idea mom!

Amy says:

Let us know how it turns out!

Amy says:

Great idea! We haven’t, but what about scrambled eggs, peppers, and cheese!! MMMM>>>

Trisha says:

Hi Amy!
I want to make this recipe but the link for the regular bread dough is broken. If you could update this post to include the recipe you use instead of the link, that would be fantastic! In the meantime, I’ll look at some of your other recipes to see if I can find another bread/dough recipe. Thanks!! 🙂

Thanks Trisha- I found the one we were using on a different site and fixed the link! Good luck!

Hi Amy! The link u provided is awesome! I would love to make the braid with whole wheat flour. But is it necessary we use lecithin?

You can try it without! It just makes it so it holds together and is more pliable.

I love baby slippers! I go through phases with Cosmo, sometimes I love it and sometimes it just feels like the same articles over and over.

Nik says:

Looks really tasty Amy and also something that I think I could achieve with most of the ingredients already at home. I am a busy single parent and this looks like something the kids could do with me!!

It’s looking awesome and tasty. I always appreciate these types of quick recipes. Thanks for making an ease by sharing the video. Please also write the quantity of the ingredients to be used.

Lisa says:

We made this with Cherizo and artichoke hearts. It was yummy and the presentation was much fancier than my regular pizza night. Thank you for fresh new ideas!

Lyn says:

I love getting new recipes all the time but most of them seem to just give a lot of instruction and not a lot of anything else. I’m one of those people that’s constantly following directions and wondering if I’m doing it right. I love that this recipe has pictures and a video so I can be sure I’m on the right track before I get all done 🙂

Great idea and wonderful instructions. At healthy Kids Co. we are always looking for yummy ways to add more veggies and we found another one! Thanks.
