I made this lazy pizza with some leftover vegetables and store bought dough. To make this an extra lazy pizza I also used shop bought pizza sauce.
I used Cirio pizza sauce and I like how it doesn’t contain any preservatives or other ingredients that shouldn’t be in a pizza sauce. The pizza was build of stuff I had in my fridge, but by all means use your own favorite toppings. I hope this version might inspire you.
- Roll pizza dough
- Pizza sauce, e.g. Cirio Pizzassimo
- 2 handfuls of fresh spinach, roughly chopped
- Red bell pepper, in strips
- ½ onion (or 1 small onion), in half rings
- Thinly sliced pancetta, raw ham or bacon, cut or ripped to pieces
- 2 thin slices of blue cheese or other preferred cheese
Preheat the oven at 430°F/220°C (or recommended temperature for your dough) and prep the vegetables.
Unroll the dough and place it on a baking sheet. Keep the parchment paper underneath. Fold the edges for about 1cm.
Spread the dough with an even layer of sauce. Top with the chopped spinach, red bell pepper, onion and pancetta. For a vegetarian version you can ommit the meat or substitute it with sliced mushrooms.
Crumble the cheese over the pizza.
Usually I would season the pizza with salt and pepper, but the pancetta and blue cheese give enough sharpness and saltiness.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or as directed on your dough’s package.
I loved this pizza. The dough gave a nice crust and the topping had just the right balance of spice, sharpness and saltiness. I think a version with a crème fraîche base instead of tomato sauce would also work nicely with the toppings.
A lazy pizza for a quick snack on an easy day.
