Happy Deep Dish Pizza Day!!! Vegetarian Deep Dish Pizza Recipe – What’s your favorite type of Pizza?

Deep Dish Roasted Veggie Pizza!


  • 1/2 pizza dough recipe (or 1 store-bought crust)
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup mixed veggies of your choice (such as cherry tomatoes, eggplant, onion, green pepper, mushroom)
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese
  • OPTIONAL: Italian seasonings, Parmesan cheese, fresh basil 


  1. If roasting veggies, preheat oven to broil, toss veggies in olive oil on a baking sheet, and broil for 4-6 minutes on the top rack (low/medium broil), tossing once for even cooking. Remove from oven and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  3. Next, coat a cast iron or round baking dish with extra virgin olive oil and run a garlic clove around for seasoning. Plop your dough down into the pan and push it up around the sides about 1 to 1.5 inches. Let rest for a few minutes while preparing the rest of your toppings.
  4. First sprinkle in 1/2 of mozzarella cheese, then add veggies, then sauce. Top with remaining mozzarella cheese, italian seasonings (dried basil, oregano, thyme, red pepper, etc.) and grated parmesan cheese.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese and sauce are bubbly. Let rest for 5-10 minutes before cutting, then serve immediately.

  1. I like your recipe. My favorite pizza is just making the dough, adding in spices, putting it in the oven for about 5 minutes and then brushing it with melted vegan butter with some garlic added, putting it back in the oven for 5 minutes, then taking it out and adding sauce,cut up cherry tomatoes, olives, vegan meat (chicken or whatever) and sweet peppers. It’s terrific, and I never miss the cheese!
