Easy Tuna Pizza Recipe

This tasty and easy tuna pizza is amazing all year round. You may make your own dough, use store-bought or perhaps tortilla. Whatever you choose it is absolutely amazing.

With this recipe, I am entering Tonnino Tuna Recipe Challange. After debating for a few weeks what to make, this pizza came to my mind.

We love pizza, of course, but I am a huge fan of tuna pizza. Often I would change toppings; sometimes I would use peppers, and feta or goat cheese and from time to time I make this just like this. Let me tell you, there is nothing like homemade easy tuna pizza.

I would usually make this over the summertime and serve it with a bowl of greens. Personally, I think that is a perfect meal especially if you are using good quality ingredients.

For this recipe challenge, I used Tonnino Tuna in olive oil. I was thorn between garlic in olive oil or just in olive oil. In the end, I picked tuna in olive oil.

Tonnino Tuna Pizza

However, you may use pretty much any flavor with these types of pizza because of the ingredients that I have used just work very well with any tuna.

What can I tell you from my experience as a Tonnini Tuna consumer? Well, not only that it comes in the jar, but the taste is delightful. I can confidently say that it is my family’s favorite tuna fish. On the other hand, any tuna, canned or in the jar would work just fine with pizza.

Easy Naan Bread Pizza

Easy Naan Bread Pizza

The Best Easy Naan Bread Pizza Recipe

 

 

This easy naan bread pizza comes together in 5 minutes and you can even prep everything ahead, plus it is versatile. I had leftover grilled chicken from the weekend, some tomatoes as well as olives, a bit of red onion and voila.

 

You can really make it vegetarian, or meat pizza, with sauce or like mine without it, the options are endless.

 

I love simple and easy meals… I mean, I named my blog”easy cooking” after all, so this fits in the affordable, simple and easy meal category.
If you are a single person, or a college student or you have no idea how to cook, seriously, it is super simple, so let me show you how to do it.

 

 

HOW to make chicken from scratch:

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • A generous sprinkle of salt and ground black pepper on each chicken breast
  • A generous sprinkle of Chicken Seasoning
  • 1/4 tbsp. Herbs (parsley, thyme or rosemary)
  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon juice *optional

DIRECTION:

  1. Season the chicken well with salt and chicken seasoning, on both sides, then add herbs and pour oil over it, make sure to cover both sides. I like adding lemon juice and/or lemon zest when I have it on hand because it gives this amazingly refreshing aroma and taste as well.
  2. Allow chicken to marinate for at least 15 minutes in the fridge in the Ziploc bag or in the deeper bowl. Cover the bowl or close the bag and marinade in the fridge.
  3. Grill chicken on the preheated grill for 3-4 minutes per side or until the internal temp. reads 165F.
  4. Or you could preheat your skillet or saute pan, add oil and cook for a couple of minutes on each side or until completely done.
  • If you want the Asian flavor you can just marinate chicken for at least 30 minutes submerged in 1/2 cup Teriyaki sauce, 2 tbsp Soy sauce, garlic. green onion and ginger.  
  • Make sure to place chicken in the fridge to marinade. I love using a large Ziploc bag to marinate chicken. You literally, place chicken in the bag, pour marinade mixture over it, close the bag, shake it a bit and place in the fridge, that’s it!

Vegetable Hummus Pizza

This Vegetable Hummus Pizza is easy, delicious, and perfect for lazy weekend nights.

Over the weekends I got to think of the recipes that I can make fast because my kids are home and all they ask is: “where is the food, ma?”

Sometimes, I feel like they have a hole in their belly. I guess it is just a part of growing up.

Usually, I would make delicious slow-cooked meals during the work/school days, when the kids are in school and I can actually take my time cooking.

This kind of pizzas that looks more like a tart is amazing during our family movie night or Sunday football. My family loved this one and already asked for more. It was definitely a success!

Vegetable Hummus Pizza

I was asked if I want to try “HOPE” hummus, and I could not wait to try it. My oldest son and I love hummus.

My daughter slowly but surely became a huge fan as well. We are still trying to convince my youngest to try this one. He loves certain hummus flavors.

His favorite is the original hummus, of course, and I could not agree. I tend to go back to regular hummus all the time.

That being said, my boy is really hard to negotiate. Anyhow, this is not a sponsored post, but I wanted to let you know how delicious this HOPE hummus was.

Vegetable Hummus Pizza

They have many flavors, and my Publix only carries these 5, which I absolutely adored.

My favorite though was jalapeno-cilantro and Thia coconut curry. Although original recipe, kale pesto, and spicy avocado were not bad at all.

However, those two flavors that I really loved hit the spot in the right places. I really liked their hummus and I would totally recommend it.

Vegetable Hummus Pizza
Yield: Serves 4

Vegetable Hummus Pizza

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

Easy, delicious, and perfect for lazy weekend nights!

Ingredients

  • 1 Pizza Crust 1 lb
  • 2 tablespoons Hope Jalapeno-Cilantro Hummus (or any on hand)
  • 1 cup Fresh broccoli florets blanched
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried herbs; Italian blend
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup pepper Jack, shredded
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella, shredded

Instructions

  1. Boil about 2 cups of water and drop in Broccoli florets for 20 to 30 seconds, then drain under cold water. Slightly dry them with kitchen paper towel.
  2. Dice all the vegetables, then heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil and add diced vegetables. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and herbs of your choice. I used an Italian blend. Saute for a couple of minutes just to get them to start cooking.
  3. Shred all your cheese. You may use just mozzarella, but I loved these three kinds of cheese together.
  4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  5. Line a baking pan with parchment paper and place stretched and rolled pizza dough. You may make the dough yourself, or get store-bought. You can use a regular pizza pan, but I wanted more of a deep dish type of pizza.
  6. Spread equally 2 to 3 tablespoons of hummus, then add shredded cheese, broccoli florets, and sauteed vegetables.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes or until the crust begins to get a golden color, and the cheese is completely melted and bubbly.
  8. Serve immediately!

Notes

Pizza Dough RECIPE 

You may pick any cheese that you wish, I just think this combo one works very well with pizza toppings.

You may use frozen florets just make sure to pat dry so you don't end up with excess water, you can defrost it instead of blanching.
