This Roasted Veggie Pizza is simply just amazing. It is the perfect combination of sweet and savory.
Roasted balsamic sweet potatoes, onions, mushrooms, and red peppers sit on top of a fig spread and finished with honey goat cheese! Top the pizza off with the fresh taste of arugula and dinner is complete.
I mean seriously, does it get any better? Roasted Veggie Pizza is the best example of a yuppy pizza but even my meat eating husband was digging this pizza. He requests it often.
I was feeling the vibe of “Meatless Monday” and this pizza fit the bill. It was my way of sneaking in a vegetarian meal without the family even realizing it!
BUT I do have to tell you, this pizza does taste pretty darn amazing with thick pieces of bacon or some smokey sausage, you know in case it is not “Meatless Monday”. Wink Wink 🙂
This is a great way to use up those Roasted Veggies I posted earlier this week. If you have not made these delicious vegetables now is the perfect time to whip up a batch.
Roasted Veggie Pizza is perfect for your girls happy hour, sliced into thin pieces for an appetizer, or just for a family dinner.
Not a fan of honey goat cheese? You can use feta, gorgonzola, herbed boursin cheese or even drizzle ranch dressing over the top of the arugula and you will still get the creamy texture with this dish.
If your veggies are done, the prep time is about 3 minutes and pizza takes about 10. Dinner can be on the table in less than 15 minutes. All the moms shouted “Hallelujah”! You are welcome. I am here for you. 🙂 Heehee!
Enough of how fabulous this Roasted Veggie Pizza will be, let’s get cooking!
Step by step instructions
- Follow the baking instructions on the frozen pizza crust.
- Remove frozen pizza crust from the oven and set on parchment paper. Let the pizza thaw about 5-10 minutes.
- Take about 1/3 cup fig jam and spread it evenly over your pizza.
- Place roasted veggies around the pizza and top with honey goat cheese. I think to add some fresh thyme also.
- Place your roasted veggie pizza (with parchment paper) onto the center rake of the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
Tips for success
- Make sure to read the pizza labels for cooking instructions. If you are using a thinner crust it might call for a shorter cooking time.
- This fig spread can be found in your grocery deli area as well as the goat cheese. You usually find both near the deli counter and specialty cheese area.
- You can easily substitute the veggies to whatever you prefer or have on hand. The fig and the honey goat cheese with fresh arugula just make the dish.
- I also like to add some fresh thyme. Anytime you can add fresh herbs to a dish is a win in my book.
- You can use any gluten free pizza crust you would like. They are plenty of frozen options these days. You could also make a fresh, homemade pizza dough.
- My favorite frozen gluten free crust is from Against The Grain Gourmet. Most grocery stores carry this brand now in the frozen pizza section. If they don’t have the plain crust, request it! My store ordered some.
How to store and reheat leftovers
Store leftovers covered in the fridge for up to 4 days.
Microwave: Place pizza on a microwave safe plate and heat for 60-90 seconds or until nice and warm.
Oven : (Preferred Method). Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place pizza on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and reheat for 5 minutes or until nice and warm. The crust will also crisp back up.

Just follow their cooking instructions for the temp and the time. Usually 10 minutes is the perfect time since we really aren’t cooking veggies or melting cheese.
- Fig spread and honey goat cheese can be found in most grocery stores in the deli section. I found mine right next to the meat and cheese counter.
