A few days ago, a friend asked me for a list of stove free, oven free recipes to beat the summer heat.

Her house was hot and the last thing she wanted to do was turn on the stove or oven.

Are you in the same mindset?

 

 

 

 

Wanting delicious food that is easy to pull together yet requires no oven or stove use?

If so, then this is post on No Bake Veggie Pizza Bites is dedicated to you too!

When I lived in Florida, I’d get together with a few friends each summer for a little reunion of sorts.

My friend Clair always hosted and made something similar to this a few years ago.

 

 

 

 

I thought it was delicious and was amazed at how easy it was to create – however, her recipe required the oven.

Since then I’ve tweaked it to be an oven free No Bake Veggie Pizza Bites appetizer that really does only take minutes to make!

The reality is that you can get the same flavor and almost the same results with naan as you can with the cooked crust method.

 

 

 

 

So why heat up your kitchen if you don’t have to?

As for me, this is one of my favorite go to quick lunch ideas as well as a quick and easy party food I love to serve to guests.

Primarily because I can whip these up ahead of time and keep them in the fridge until they are ready to be served!

I also love that these literally only take minutes to whip together.

 

 

 

 

AND you can customize them to your favorite toppings!

If you don’t like broccoli, then ditch it and add shredded brussel sprouts or try it out with diced tomatoes, bacon or mushrooms!

The world is your oyster, so the saying goes, so customize these No Bake Veggie Pizza Bites to your liking!

 

 

 

 

The recipe as written is my favorite go to way so far.

I usually whip it up when I’ve got half a bell pepper leftover from a dinner recipe or a few slices of Naan or flat bread laying around without a purpose!

Generally speaking I have all the ingredients in the fridge ready to go, so this really is a quick and simple lunch for me to toss together!

Not to mention decently healthy too!

 

 

 

 

There are four simple steps to recreating this for your family and friends!

Step one – Cut the veggies!  I used red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, green onions and broccoli.

Step two – Slather your Naan with cream cheese.  I prefer to use chive & onion cream cheese, but have also used plain.  You can use any flavor really.

 

 

 

 

Step 3 – Add veggies & cheese to your naan.  Press veggies and cheese gently into cream cheese so they stick.

Step 4 – Cut and serve.

You’ve now heard about my favorite new way to keep my kitchen cool this summer and my family well fed!

I’d love to hear your favorite ways to beat the heat in the kitchen!

  1. I clicked for the recipe and idea, and was thoroughly disappointed by the giant advertisement about a silly product. Stick to food, not “Greenworks pump and unnecessary”

    • Hi K! I’m so sorry you were disappointed by the advertisement for Green Works. Sadly the endless hours I put into this website, creating recipes and photographing them, in addition to all the social media attention (Facebook, Pinterest etc) all do very little to bring income to my family. So occasionally I take on a sponsored post. This is where a company hires me to promote a product in coloration to a recipe I create.

      This my dear friend is what helps to pay the bills, which allow me to continue bringing great recipes to you! Out of our over 500 recipes on this website, only 6 are sponsored posts, this being one of them. I believe those are good odds considering a good portion of independently owned recipe sites are more in the ratio of 1/3 of all posts being sponsored with lots of product advertising. I hope next time you’ll do as I do and scroll quickly past any advertising to get straight to the recipe.

      This really is a favorite snack/lunch of mine and I hope you’ll look past the advertising and try the recipe! Thanks so much for your suggestion, but until this website brings in any sort of an actual income (which is does not and is 99% my personal donated time) then I’ll continue to occasionally have sponsored posts to pay the maintenance fees associated with doing a website (which are not cheap).

    • I didn’t like it either.. after trying to get rid of it for a third time, I was FINALLY Able to see recipe… Seems like every other recipe I have looks at today, sends me on a goose chase Just to see the recipe!!!
      BTW… What kind of bread was that? Never heard of it

  2. Recipe was AMAZING!!! Thanks so much for posting this, I just added to my Pinterest. I have used this delish recipe for everything from my kids for lunch to my highbrow book/wine club! I added red onions…just a sprinkle to add zest. K is an idiot for not realizing the need for some compensation when you tirelessly provide us w great blog oosts. It’s frustrating when someone can’t obviously recognize that’s why it’s in the picture to help make you blog worth your hardwork and time…GO GIRL!!!

    • Thanks Marcia! I always keep sponsored posts up for 1 year. After that all the “sales” type speak will disappear. I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed this recipe! I find it easy and delicious!

    • Hi Rebecca! Yes you can make them the day before and pop them into the fridge. Just make sure they are in a sealed container or dish with plastic wrap to keep the veggies fresh. As far as how long they will keep, generally 48 hours and then the veggies start to look sad. Enjoy!
