Roasted Red Pepper Pizza
We are Creatures Of Habit
How many times have you ordered the same thing at a restaurant? Relying on what you know because you know you like it? That’s all fine and good, but that doesn’t leave room for exploring new flavors or new experiences. That gets boring. And boring can lead to mindless eating sometimes. And pizza is too fabulous to not be fully enjoyed.

- 1 jarred roasted red bell pepper
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 garlic clove
- ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/8 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
- 1–2 teaspoons cornmeal
- 1 pound whole wheat pizza dough
- 2 cups baby spinach
- ¼ cup thinly sliced red onion
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese
- Place a baking stone or steel in the oven and preheat to 500’F at least 1 hour before making pizza.
- Slice half of the pepper into strips and reserve. Combine remaining ½ pepper with the olive oil, garlic and Italian seasoning in a small food processor and puree until smooth.
- Sprinkle a large square of parchment** with cornmeal. Stretch pizza dough into a 12 to 14-inch circle. Cover with red pepper sauce, then top with spinach, remaining roasted red pepper and red onion. Sprinkle with mozzarella then feta cheese.
- Transfer pizza to the oven and bake until cheese is melted and bubbly, about 8-10 minutes.
**Most parchment paper brands say their product can be used up to 450’F. Since the bake time here is relatively short, your parchment should be okay to use in the heat required in this recipe. If you’re hesitant, just reduce temperature to 450’F and proceed as above.
