Plant-Based Pizza: 50+ Tasty Plant-Based Pizza Recipes

Eggplant, Artichoke, and Tomato Bread Pizza


Trader Joe’s has always been a go-to grocery store for my family. In many of the places we have lived, it has been within walking distance of our residence making it convenient as well as affordable to utilize for weekly grocery shopping. I also can’t resist trying the unique products they offer through the seasons. Over the next few weeks, I will be doing a series of bread pizza recipes that utilize ingredients that can be found at Trader Joe’s. Check out the shopping list in the notes!

Bread pizza is something from my childhood. With two working parents they were often looking for ways to feed my siblings and me a home-cooked meal that was quick and easy and accommodating to a child’s palette. The beauty of bread pizzas is that you can vary the toppings based on individual preference. This recipe utilizes simple ingredients that offer Mediterranian flavors with only 10 minutes of hands-on prep.
