This Carrot Pizza has carrot in the simple crust and in the carrot pizza sauce! The carrots give it a subtly sweet flavour and add a lovely orange colour.
This delicious Carrot Pizza has carrot puree in the bright orange pizza crust, as well as carrot hidden in the pizza sauce!
It's a tasty way to eat those veggies.
It's Easter time, so why not make carrot pizza into carrot shapes!
My kids absolutely loved them. Green beans are the perfect thing to make as the carrot tops.
These fun little Carrot Pizzas were super-easy to make - especially if you knead the pizza dough in a stand mixer.
Feel free to use any toppings that you like - from olives and mushrooms, to sweetcorn and pineapple!
I know, pineapple is controversial, but after artichoke hearts, it's my favourite pizza topping.
I added carrot puree to the simple pizza sauce, so that we could get a bit more veg into the meal - something I always try to do!
This recipe makes a family-sized batch of pizza dough with a thin crust.
I cut half of it into carrot shapes, and left the rest of it as a big, sliceable rectangle for the grown ups.
We often make pizza at home and I love adding veg to colour the crust.
My kids adore our Beet Pizza with it's vibrant purple crust as well as this bright orange carrot crust (with a little help from turmeric)!
Make a naturally green pizza with this easy Spinach Pizza crust!
You can't taste the vegetables, but it adds such great hues.

Carrot Pizza with Carrot Sauce
For the pizza dough
- 13 oz (375g) carrots
- ¾ cup (180ml) warm water
- 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
- 350 g (350g) all-purpose flour (plain flour)
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
For the carrot pizza sauce
- 8 tablespoon carrot puree left over from the pizza dough
- 2 tablespoons tomato puree
- ½ teaspoon dried oregano
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- Salt and pepper
- 1 ball mozzarella or vegan alternative
- 1 handful cherry tomatoes sliced
- Handful rocket/arugula
- 3 teaspoon olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- French beans cooked and cooled (if making carrot shaped pizzas)
- Steam the carrots for a few minutes until soft. Refresh under cold water and drain well. Puree with a hand held stick blender or food processor until smooth. Set aside.
In a stand mixer:
- Pour the water into the bowl of the stand mixer, then sprinkle the yeast over the water and let it stand for a few minutes until the yeast has dissolved.
- Insert the dough hook, add 150g (½ cup) of the pureed carrot (reserving the rest for the sauce), plus the flour and salt to the yeast water and knead with the machine for a few minutes until the dough forms a sticky ball. It will be a very soft dough, but if the dough is still too sticky, add a tablespoon of flour at a time until it is manageable. Don’t add too much or it will affect the end result.
Alternatively make the pizza dough by hand:
- Pour the water into a large mixing bowl and sprinkle the yeast over the water. Let it stand for a few minutes until the yeast has dissolved.
- Add 150g (½ cup) of the pureed carrot (reserving the rest for the sauce), plus the flour and salt to the bowl of water and stir until it forms a loose dough.
- Tip the dough onto a lightly floured countertop (on floured baking paper if you have a wooden countertop to avoid the carrot staining) and knead firmly for 5-10 minutes or until it’s smooth, (though it will be a soft sticky dough). If the dough is too sticky, add a tablespoon of flour at a time until it is manageable. Don’t add too much or it will affect the end result.
- For both dough methods:
- Put the dough into a large lightly oiled bowl, then turn the dough over so both sides are covered in oil and cover with clingfilm. Place the bowl in a warm place and allow the dough to rise for 1 ½ hours.
For the carrot pizza sauce:
- In a bowl, mix the carrot puree (don’t worry if you don’t have quite enough left over from the pizza), tomato puree, oregano and garlic powder. Season with the salt and pepper and adjust to taste. Keep refrigerated until ready to use.
To cook the pizza
- Preheat the oven to 250C/ 480F, or as high your oven will go.
- Divide the dough into thirds and then roll each one out on a lightly floured piece of baking paper, as thin as possible to fit the size of your baking tray. Transfer the pizza and baking paper to the baking tray.
- Alternatively, use a knife or pizza cutter to cut the rolled rectangle into large triangles for carrot shapes and separate them slightly on the baking paper.
- Spread the pizza bases with the carrot pizza sauce, then add the toppings. Drizzle with the olive oil.
- Place the pizza in the oven and cook for 12 minutes or until the base is crisp and the edges have begun to brown.
- Repeat with the remaining dough and toppings.
- Pile the pizzas with the rocket/arugula and serve hot, cut into slices.
- For the carrot shapes, serve with cooked French beans as the carrot tops.

I really love how you used green beans in this. I just showed the recipe to my sister, and now she wants to try and make this with my nephew and niece. Very creative!
What a brilliant idea and recipe.
WOW this is super cool! First time I've seen carrots in pizza crust. LOVE it!
Thanks Sarah. I love adding veg to pizza dough!
I love your idea to use carrot puree in the pizza sauce! I like my sauce a little sweet, but don't like adding much sugar, the carrots will be wonderful! Pinned for later, Thanks!
I hope you enjoy it! The carrots certainly do add a lovely sweetness.

I really like the idea of the carrot puree in lieu of tomato sauce. Adds more flavor and some texture too.

these are really cute - there just aren't enough fun savoury easter treats about the web - so I really love this idea to balance out all the chocolate and fondant!
Ha! I love these, they are so cute! Happy long weekend to the whole family Kate 🙂

These are so clever, I love how you've made them look like carors but the real genius part is adding carrots to the to the tomato pasata base.
I love the idea of a carrot pizza sauce. Looks like a recipe kids would have fun helping to make!

How fun! Great use of the carrots in the sauce and the dough! Great way of getting carrots and veggies into the kiddos! Love it!
I love these, perfect for spring and includes lots of healthy veggies!
Gloria @ Homemade & Yummy
These are SOOOO cute. My oldest daughter is a carrot hater. It would be hard to hate these adorable slices. She does love pizza...so this might just work. However....she is 37 so might be hard to trick her.
Michelle @ Greedy Gourmet
Wow, how super cute are these? You always find such creative ways to slip extra veg in!
These are so cute! I love the idea of carrots in the sauce. I'm all about those extra veggies!
So am I! And I like them loud and proud so the kids get used to eating them 🙂
That just made me smile Katherine and I love that you added the carrot in. It reminded me I haven't made homemade pizza for a while and that it's a great way of getting extra veg into our wee ones. Just love this!
Oh my goodness, these are adorable!
I will definitely try making these with my nephew 🙂
