A fun way to showcase more vegetables to your family with pizza dough! Choose your favourite greens and pepper colour to change up the flavours and colours. Make your own pizza dough or pick up a bag on your next shopping trip.



  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium high heat and cook mushrooms, onions, garlic and pepper for about 12 minutes or until softened and liquid is evaporated. Stir in spinach, Swiss chard, sundried tomatoes, salt and pepper and cook until wilted. Remove from heat and stir in breadcrumbs; let cool slightly. Stir in mozzarella and basil.
  2. Meanwhile, on a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to a 12 x 16 inch (30 x 40 cm) rectangle. Place on a large parchment paper lined baking sheet and reshape. Mound mushroom mixture along centre of dough leaving about 3 inches (7.5 cm) around long edges. Cut diagonal strips about 1 inch (2.5 cm) wide along the sides. Crisscross strips over filling to get a braided look.
  3. Bake in preheated 400 F (200 C) oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool slightly before serving.
