Veg Up & Veg Out!

California is the home of Hungry Girl, so we felt the need to reclaim this CPK pizza named for veggies from the Golden State. High-fiber pita, you're on deck...

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes

Ingredients:
3 tbsp. canned crushed tomatoes
3 stalks broccolini, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 3/4 cup)
Half a Japanese eggplant, thinly sliced into coins (about 1/2 cup)
2 tbsp. frozen sweet corn kernels
1/2 cup chopped brown mushrooms
1 high-fiber pita
1/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 tbsp. chopped bagged sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
1/4 cup very thinly sliced red onion
Seasonings: garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning

Directions: 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray. 



In a small bowl, season crushed tomatoes to taste.

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add broccolini pieces, eggplant coins, and 2 tbsp. water. Cover and cook for 4 minutes, or until slightly softened.

Add corn and mushrooms. Cook and stir until corn has lightly browned and other veggies have softened, about 2 minutes. Blot away excess moisture.

Lay pita on the baking sheet, and spread with seasoned tomatoes, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Sprinkle with cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, onion, and cooked veggies. Bake until hot and lightly browned, 10 - 12 minutes. Enjoy!

Panning this Pizza…

Menu items like this veggie pie make us nuts. Because looking at it, you'd surely think it would be one of the better things you could order at CPK. It's packed with veggies, after all. Sadly, even a veg-topped pie comes on a big doughy base covered in oily cheese. Split this one with a pal, and you're still taking in more than 500 calories and over 15 grams of fat. Here's the thing: We really love the combo of veggies on this pizza: broccolini, eggplant, corn, mushrooms... Yum. Maybe it's because we live in California, or maybe it's just because we have really good taste. Anyhow, we knew we had to get all that great stuff onto an HG-style pizza STAT. Follow our easy instructions, and you too can chow like we do on the West Coast, guilt-free!
