We were recently contacted by Cookin’ Greens to create a unique and tasty using some of their fresh frozen vegetable mixes. Bob & I decided that creating a veggie packed BBQ pizza would be the best option! Now here is something cool about Cookin’ Greens which I really appreciate: all their frozen veggies (chopped kale, chopped spinach, chopped rapini, Designer Mix and the Athlete’s Mix) are frozen within six hours after being freshly farm picked, then are double washed, double blanched, chopped and flash frozen to seal in the maximum amount of nutrition and flavour. Because of Cookin’ Greens intense process, you can find these frozen veggies in the organic isle. But I’m hungry, so let’s get to the recipe!
Cookin’ Greens BBQ Pizza
- One bag of Cookin’ Greens Designer Mix
- Roasted Red Pepper Spread (pizza sauce will work)
- Flavoured Olive Oil (could also use ranch dressing instead)
- Goat Cheese
Basic Pizza Dough (done in a bread machine)
- 2/3 cup water
- 4 tsp olive oil
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp fresh ground pepper
- 2 cups flour
- 1 1/2 tsp bread machine yeast
- 3 tbsp parmesan cheese
- 2 tsp basil
- 2 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp garlic powder
In your bread machine, combine all the above ingredients and set to the “dough” setting. Once it’s done, divide the dough in half and roll into two thin crust pizzas. Cover one pizza with the roasted red pepper spread (or a pizza sauce) and the other with the flavoured olive oil or ranch dressing. Top each with Cookin’ Green Designer Mix and medallions of goat cheese.
Barbecue the pizzas over a medium heat on a pizza cooking stone for roughly 20-3o minutes until the crust turns golden brown. Cut into slices, serve & enjoy!
