For many people, selecting pizza toppings is all about the meat: pepperoni, sausage, bacon, ham, chicken, etc. But the magic of pizza often comes from having a variety of toppings, including meats and vegetables. And even though meat-lovers may think it’s crazy, there are plenty of people out there who think a fresh veggie pizza is the way to go, and no, it’s not just vegetarians.

Best Veggie Pizza Toppings From A to Z
Artichoke has a meaty texture but a fresh flavor that balances beautifully with spinach and a mixture of mozzarella, provolone, and parmesan cheeses. Mix up a white cream sauce and you have yourself a rich, comforting pizza.
Lettuce on a pizza? Yes! If you love pear, apple, and arugula salads, then you’ll love these toppings on a pizza – minus the apple. This is another white sauce pizza and is delicious with garlic, ricotta, mozzarella, and parmesan shavings. If you need meat, prosciutto is a great choice; if you want to stick with the vegetarian theme, go with mushrooms.
A classic veggie pizza topping, mushrooms provide another meaty texture. The beauty of mushrooms is that they can be topped with just about anything, from olives to onions, pepperoni, bacon, and spinach. You can even try a range of cheeses, including the classic mozzarella cheese, or go wild with goat cheese.
Veggie lover’s paradise is a pizza with plenty of onions. Similar to how mushrooms can be combined with several toppings, you can’t go wrong with adding whatever toppings you’re in the mood for when you want onions.
There are a variety of peppers that are delicious on pizza, but the most common are bell peppers and jalapenos. Bell peppers offer a slight crunch and a slightly sweet flavor. Jalapenos add a kick of spice that balance perfectly with a delicious tomato-based sauce.
Although not a traditional pizza topping, if you’re willing to go out on a limb for a unique and life-changing pizza, you need to try potatoes. Potato pizzas typically have a white sauce that is made with shallots, white wine, and mozzarella. Sprinkle on rosemary, salt, pepper, and fresh parmesan.
How could we talk about pizza toppings and vegetables without mentioning tomatoes? Even though they’re a part of the sauce, fresh slices of tomato on a Margherita pizza – we’re not drooling, are you drooling?
Don’t knock it until you try it! Even though zucchini can sound like it will just be a pile of push on the crust, zucchini adds a fresh flavor and smooth texture. This topping works well with either a red or white sauce and pairs great with caramelized onions and mozzarella cheese.
