Grain-Free Pizza Stir Fry Recipe

pizza stir fry

Pizza is definitely a kid favorite, but not usually a healthy 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 toppings of pizza 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!

Pizza Stir Fry: Easy Weeknight Meal

Stir frys of all types are one of my favorite types of meals to make. They are fast and easy to make, loaded with vegetables, and only dirty one pan. I have plenty of “normal” stir fry recipes in regular rotation, but this pizza stir fry is one of my more creative recipes. I promise… it really tastes like pizza!

I use Italian seasonings, Italian sausage, and uncured pepperoni and all the pizza vegetables — mushrooms, fresh spinach, black olives, onions, and bell peppers. I also toss in some diced zucchini. Feel free to use whatever combination of pizza veggies you like best.

I top each bowl with a couple spoonfuls of warmed pasta sauce or pizza sauce and a sprinkle of shredded mozzarella. You could even put the (oven-safe) bowls under the broiler for a few minutes to melt the cheese.

Other Ways to Serve Pizza Stir Fry

The Italian sausage in this stir fry makes it a surprisingly good breakfast as well as dinner. Or make a pizza omelet by using the stir fry as the omelet filling and topping with warmed pizza sauce and shredded mozzarella.
