Ground Turkey Veggie Pizza

February, 23rd 2023

I created this recipe for my picky two-year-old. Most toddlers love PB&J sandwiches and nuggets! For a tasty change of pace try this Ground Turkey Veggie pizza! This easy recipe is perfect for lunch or dinner. I cannot speak for all toddlers, but my small fry has become quite the picky eater. She went on a “no meat” strike this past summer. Recently she started eating fish sticks, chicken, and now turkey again! If you’ve seen my recent Instagram post, I made broccoli and chicken quesadillas for my toddler, and she loved it! I wanted to try my luck again by making pizza using the same chopping technique with broccoli and bell peppers. I should also mention the ingredients I used were super cheap. We recently welcomed our second daughter in December. As a new mom of two, I don’t have time to make homemade pizza dough, a premade pizza crust works just fine! I quickly whipped up two small pizzas, which my husband ate! I was subjected to making a third. Ah! Yes, I should mention this recipe is for kids and adults.

I didn’t use much measuring with this recipe considering how small my pizza crusts were. The following ingredients can be used on any size pizza crust. I chopped the broccoli and bell pepper small then sautéing until the texture was soft. To my surprise my daughter liked it. She did notice the bell pepper on her pizza and even picked up a few pieces while eating. The bottom line, she didn’t throw it to the side. I would consider this a small win!


Keep the seasoning simple, or add other flavors you like. I seasoned my ground Turkey with a generous amount of salt and pepper. Sometimes I find ground turkey very bland when other people cook it. This is one of those situations where you MUST use your judgment when seasoning to taste. You can always add more when sautéing the meat later.

what you will need
1 lb Ground Turkey
Salt (to taste)
Ground Pepper(to taste)
1 Orange Bell Pepper
1 Head Of Broccoli

Premade Pizza Crust

Step by Step Instructions

1. Season ground Turkey with your desired spices. Set aside
2. Prepare pizza crust accordingly to the packaging. Remember to preheat your oven.
3. Wash vegetables and pat them dry. Chop the bell pepper and broccoli really small. I used the top of the broccoli head, not the stems.
4. Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the bell pepper first, sauté for 3-4 mins add broccoli last. Cook until soft. Remove from heat.
5. Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add turkey to the skillet. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes or until turkey is browned.

6. Add pizza sauce and smooth out the sauce with the back of a spoon. Sprinkle a layer of mozzarella cheese. Add toppings. Top with more mozzarella. Bake pizza for the minimum amount of time indicated on the package.
