This colorful veggie pizza comes together ultra-fast when you use a crusty French bread for the crust! Top your pizzas with veggies, cheese, and sauce, then bake for a homemade dinner that’s quicker and more nourishing than takeout.
Every household needs some 10 minute dinner ideas! And this veggie pizza is one of ours. I can’t even count how many times we get home at 5:00 and I need to get something on the table before my family starts snacking instead. We love this veggie pizza recipe because it has all the veggies that are perfect for a pizza. We used bell peppers, broccoli, and tomatoes, sprinkled on top of French bread with pizza sauce and some mozzarella cheese.
Are you having a “clean out the fridge day” before you replenish your groceries? This pizza is as great way to use up the odds and ends in your fridge.

How to Make 10-Minute Veggie Pizza
Start with a loaf of French bread. We’ve also used hoagie rolls, pita bread, English muffins, bagels, or any other open faced bread for the bottom.
Next, chop all your veggies. Use any veggies you have on hand that would taste good on pizza. To keep the cook time short, we didn’t roast or grill our veggies separately, but you could do that if you like an extra roasty flavor. If you’re not pre-cooking the veggies, chop them small so they cook a bit as the cheese is melting.
Once we topped the pizzas, we put them on a cookie sheet to bake in a 375 degree oven for about 10 minutes (full details below).
Picky Eater Tips for Serving Veggie Pizza
Because a lot of kids aren’t going to like every single veggie on their pizza, we decided to let them make their own. We had all the veggies chopped and set out for them. Then, they had the option to assemble their own pizza; but we suggested that they each choose 2 veggies!
This is a great way to offer: 1 veggie they already know they like, and 1 new veggie to try. Since kids like pizza anyway, and the cheese helps the veggie pizza to be more acceptable to picky eaters, this is the perfect meal for introducing new veggies.
Toppings Ideas for Veggie Pizza
- cherry tomatoes
- shredded carrots
- bell peppers
- red onion
- basil leaves
Our final result: DELICIOUS! And the prep time can’t be beat.
