Falafel Pizza

Falafel Pizza

Yield

Serves 4 (serving size: 2 slices)

When a Middle Eastern main takes a trip to Italy via the Mediterranean, you get this fantastic vegetarian pizza. The chopped falafel warms through and toasts until crisp while the pizza bakes. Sun-dried tomatoes and kalamata olives give this quick pizza its bold, intense flavor (and dried tomatoes won't compromise the crispy base). Mild mozzarella cheese ties the whole thing together. Serve with a simple arugula salad dressed with lemon and topped with shaved Parmesan and cracked black pepper.

Ingredients

  • 1 (12-in.) whole-grain prebaked pizza crust (such as Mama Mary's)
  • 1/2 cup lower-sodium marinara sauce
  • 2 ounces part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 cup thinly sliced yellow bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 ounce pitted kalamata olives, finely chopped (about 2 Tbsp.)
  • 4 cooked falafel patties from Falafel Pita Sliders
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
