Pizza Stir Fry Recipe

Healthy Pizza Stir Fry Recipe- Kid approved

Pizza is definitely a kid favorite, but not so much a health promoting one. My kids love our alternative, Meatza, but it is messy to make and takes multiple pans. I’m a huge fan of stir-frys and decided that the ingredients of Pizza, minus the processed junk crust would make a great stir fry.

After a few tries, I finally have a recipe that I really like and that the kids seem to love. In fact, I had to make it twice to get a picture because they ate the first batch before I could photograph it. This also make a surprisingly good breakfast, or leftovers can be used in making a pizza omelet, another kid favorite!

  1. Dinner tomorrow, for sure.  I’m excited about this recipe.

  2. Looks good!  I have absolutely never found nitrite-free pepperoni around here, though.  Is there a brand or link you could share?  

    • Applegate is a great brand and is sold in most health food stores and some grocery stores.  Check their website to see if there  is a store near you that carries it.

    • Hi!  Hormel foods has a nitrite-free pepperoni.  It’s been pretty easy for me to find it in my local grocery store.  HTH!  ~Talya

  3. Making this tonight! 

  4. I made this last night and let me just say that it was stupid good! I altered it a bit to fit our taste, but WOWSERS. DH even loved it and he is a hardcore fanatic about having “real” pizza. 

  5. We enjoyed every bite of this recipe.. I have not been able to find a pizza dough I like or if it was one I liked, I had a reaction to an ingredient. I so don’t have to worry about that with this recipe. This may be a weekly meal.. at least for a while.. lol.. Thanks!!

  6. Made this last night, soooo yummy!! Thank you for sharing!

  7. I make stir fried pancakes for breakfast. I fry up some of our home grown turkey sausage. Add some butter to the pan. I add extra eggs to my pancake recipe and leave out any oil. When the butter is sizzling I pour in the batter. Let it cook until well set on the bottom then start gently turning it over and stirring until all of the bite sized pieces are lightly browned. Then I stir a little maple syrup in. If you put some Stevia in the batter you can get by with less syrup.
    This was especially nice when my children were all little, no cutting pancakes or pouring syrup and buttering at the table. It’s all done before it gets to the table.

  8. I’ve been known to make a great pizza crust, and with part whole wheat flour I assumed it was healthier. Now that I’m grain free, I don’t have to miss out on that pizza taste anymore. Thanks for the recipe!

  9. I literally just made this and it’s amazing!!! I got home from work just an hour ago and managed to make this meal while wrangling two toddlers in a short amount of time. Adding this to my repitoire for sure!
