Scatteredmom's Veggie Pizza

I love a good veggie pizza. Too often the ones from a take out place have few veggies and mostly cheese, or they throw in weird things like pineapple. Fruit? No thanks. In my house, this is how we roll with pizza. Sometimes the toppings change a bit, but in general, this is our favourite.

red onion
thinly sliced zucchini
thinly sliced sweet peppers (red, yellow, orange, or combination)
sliced black olives
garlic cloves-peeled, cut into slivers
plum tomatoes-seeded, then thinly sliced (it's important to do this, otherwise you get soggy pizza)

We make our own sauce and crust. Recipes here.

So when you have made your crust, rolled it out, and then topped it with your sauce, we layer our pizzas like so....

-mozzarella cheese
-zucchini, peppers, tomatoes
-maybe a sprinkle of feta or Parmesan cheese

The trick is not to put too much cheese on top of the veggies, or they won't cook.

Bake this baby in the middle of a pre-heated 425 F oven for about 15-18 minutes, watching carefully so the bottom doesn't get too brown on you. When it looks like how you enjoy your toast, remove the pan and set the rack higher. Turn on the broiler.

Put the pizza back in (and watch carefully) so the broiler can do it's work caramelizing the bits of cheese and stuff and making that pizza look amazing. Don't over do it, and don't get distracted or the pizza will be burned.

Remove from the oven, let sit for about 5 minutes, then cut up and eat!
