Grilled Roasted Vegetable Pizza Wraps

Vegan Grilled Roasted Vegetable Pizza Wrap

This was just made up for lunch one day when I only had scraps of veg left in the fridge, a couple mushrooms, one pepper and about 1/4 of a large zucchini. As I also had wraps to use, some pizza sauce open and some mozza cheezly about it only made sense to make a grilled pizza wrap sandwich! Turned out absolutely delicious and is really very simple. Obviously you can use whatever veg you like here and the cheezly is entirely optional :-)

Grilled Roasted Vegetable Pizza Wraps: makes 2

2 large wraps

1 small red or yellow pepper, diced
1/4 of a zucchini, sliced and quarters
100g mushrooms, quartered
1 small onion, diced large
2 cloves garlic, left in skins.
1/2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/8 tsp salt
freshly ground black pepper

30g sliced black olives (2 Tbsp)
15g pine nuts, toasted (1 Tbsp)
fresh basil leaves
pizza sauce, store bought
mozza cheezly, about 60g - optional!

Preheat the oven to 200C / 400F. Place the peppers, mushrooms, zucchini, onion and garlic cloves in a roasting tin. Drizzle over the olive oil and salt and toss well until everything is coated. Pop in the oven for about 1/2 hour until veg are roasted tender and there is no liquid left. Make sure to pull it out a couple times to stir during roasting. When done, remove the garlic, push out the now roasted clove and mash it with a fork then stir it into the roasted veg.

Scrape it all into a large bowl and add the toasted pine nuts and black olives and mix well.

Heat a plain wrap just to make it more pliable then spread with 1 - 2 tablespoons of pizza sauce (most brands are vegan,  I use Marks and Spencers Margherita pizza sauce). then top with the roasted veg mixture and some fresh basil leaves.

If you don't like vegan cheese just leave it as is - it'll still be stunning without it, if you do, it's a lovely addition. Just add about 30g per wrap of grated mozza cheezly, or whatever you like:

Now, I opted to just fold both ends over here but next time I think I will fold the ends over and then grill as it won't be as messy to eat! Get a grill pan really hot and brush the side that has the fold with a bit of olive oil. Place this side first down on the hot grill pan and press down.

When that side has nice grill marks on it and you can hear the cheeze sizzling away, brush the top side with olive oil and flip over. When that side is grilled nicely, remove and enjoy! I just added some plain leaf here with a simple oil and vinegar dressing.
