We know how time-consuming it is to create pizza dough from scratch, so we’ve made sure this veggie pizza meal prep recipe does not involve this lengthy process. So, for this easy veggie pizza, we’re using Simple Mills pizza dough, a gluten-free almond flour-based option. Instead of creating one large pizza crust, we recommend dividing it into two.
Not only is this veggie pizza meal prep gluten-free, it is also perfect for vegetarians and vegans if they opt to use dairy-free cream cheese. The cream cheese will be used as a base for this dish instead of a traditional tomato sauce. After the cream cheese has been spread to cover the pizza crust, assemble the rest of the ingredients on top. This gluten-free veggie pizza is served cold because baking it in an oven would destroy the nutrients in the fresh veggies. Of course, want to make sure we’re reaping all the health benefits we can!
