Pizza Primavera Recipes


  • 1 (13.8 ounce) can Pillsbury® refrigerated classic pizza crust
  • 1 (18 ounce) can Progresso™ Recipe Starters™ creamy Parmesan basil cooking sauce
  • 1 (16 ounce) bag frozen bell pepper and onion stir-fry, thawed and well drained on paper towels
  • 2 cups loosely packed fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Garnishes, if Desired:
  • Sliced pitted kalamata olives (optional)
  • Pizza seasoning or Italian seasoning (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray. Unroll pizza dough on cookie sheet; press into 15x12-inch rectangle. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until light golden brown.
  2. Spread 1 /2 cup plus 2 tablespoons of the cooking sauce evenly over partially baked crust (more sauce will make crust soggy). Arrange peppers and onions evenly over sauce; top with spinach leaves. Sprinkle with cheese.
  3. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Meanwhile, heat remaining sauce until hot. Sprinkle pizza with olives and pizza seasoning. Serve sauce with pizza as dipping sauce.
