Potluck Pizza

Potluck Pizza

Yield: 12 servings

Just because it’s too hot to cook doesn’t mean you can’t have pizza—or a very good substitute. This potluck dish will be gone before you know it, especially with kids around. Chill for several hours if you are traveling to a potluck dinner or family reunion.


10 plum tomatoes, chopped

3 green bell peppers, chopped

2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese

1 package of pepperoni slices (3.25 oz)

1 small can of chopped black olives, drained

1 small can of mushrooms, drained

¼ cup of chopped onion

1/3 cup of tomato juice

¼ cup of red wine vinegar

¼ cup of olive oil

1 clove of garlic, minced

½ teaspoon of dried basil

1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes

1 cup of salad croutons, Italian style


In a small bowl, blend the tomato juice, vinegar, oil, basil, garlic and red pepper flakes. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, mushrooms, bell pepper, pepperoni, olives, onions and mozzarella. Pour the olive oil dressing over the tomato mixture, cover and refrigerate for several hours. Wait until just before serving to add the croutons to keep them crisp.
