Clare’s Veggie Pizza Stack



Serves = 4

  • 3 mixed colour capsicums, sliced into strips
  • 3 red onions, sliced into wedges
  • ½ tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 eggplant
  • 3 stalks celery
  • 500g mushrooms
  • 1 can baked beans (salt reduced)
  • 1-2 tbsp hot chilli sauce (optional)
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 75g reduced-fat cheddar
  • 4 wholegrain or rye mountain bread slices

It’s this easy

  • Preheat the oven to 180°c and line a tray with baking paper.

  • Deseed the capsicums and slice into strips. Then slice the eggplant, mushrooms, celery, and onion.

  • Scatter the sliced vegetables, except the mushrooms, onto a large baking tray and drizzle ½ tbsp oil, ½ tbsp paprika and a pinch of pepper on top - toss to coat. Place in the oven for 15 minutes or until soft and slightly caramelised.

  • Tip the baked beans into a mixing bowl, add the hot chilli sauce and remaining paprika, then mix together.

  • Lightly spray a 25cm x 30cm oblong baking dish with oil, and line with one mountain bread slice.

  • Add about ⅓ of the bean mix, ⅓ of the roasted vegetables and a layer of cheese. Make the next layer ⅓ the mushrooms and repeat this with the rest of the mountain bread and vegetables, and finish off with a sprinkle of cheese.

  • Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

  • Slice the veggie stack into 4 pieces, and serve with a salad.


  • Use Mexican sauce instead of hot chilli sauce
  • Use 2 medium zucchinis instead of eggplant
  • Use a mix of cheeses - we like parmesan, feta and goats cheese!
  • Vary the beans - just make sure to drain them.
  • Use any leftover vegetables you have as part of the veggie layer.
  • Brush the mountain bread with pesto or tomato paste if you have some left over.

What is healthy eating?

Eating healthy is making sure you enjoy a wide variety of foods from each of the five major food groups daily, in the amounts recommended. The five major food groups as recommended by the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating are:

  1. vegetables and legumes/bean
  2. fruit
  3. lean meats and poultry, fish, eggs, tofu, nuts and seeds, legumes/beans
  4. grain (cereal) foods, mostly wholegrain and/or high cereal fibre varieties
  5. milk, yoghurt, cheese and/or alternatives, mostly reduced fat.

Foods are grouped together because they provide similar amounts of key nutrients and eating a variety of foods from the list above helps to promote good health and reduce the risk of disease.

By completing the Healthy Eating Quiz you’ll receive instant personalised feedback and a report on your diet quality to highlight any areas where you can improve your overall eating habits.

Is my diet healthy?

Dietary habits are different between people. Some people choose to follow a particular diet (i.e., Keto diet or vegan diet) while some have to make changes due to certain food restrictions or health conditions. If you want to know if what you usually eat is healthy, then do the Healthy Eating Quiz today to give you the answers in less than 10 minutes.

Why is healthy eating important?

Your HEQ score and personalised feedback report is based on the frequency and variety of healthy core foods you usually eat. This is important because no single food contains all the nutrients we need to stay healthy. Some foods are higher in nutrients than others and people who have a lot of variety in the foods they eat are more likely to be healthy and to stay healthy. In other words, if you can eat a large variety of vegetables as opposed to only 2-3 types of vegetables, the benefits are much greater. This type of diet also helps you to feel better, think better and perform better during your usual daily activities.
