-1 pizza dough (store bought or handmade)
-½ cup pizza sauce
-1 cup mixed vegetables of your choice (such as cherry tomatoes,
eggplants, onions, green peppers, or mushrooms)
-½ cup mozzarella cheese
-Optional: Italian seasonings, Parmesan cheese, fresh basil

1. If roasting veggies, preheat oven to broil, toss veggies in olive oil
on a baking sheet, and broil for 4 to 6 minutes on the top rack (low/
medium broil), tossing once for even cooking. Remove from oven and
set aside.

2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit

3. Next, coat a cast iron or round baking dish with extra virgin olive oil
and run a garlic clove around for seasoning. Plop your dough down
into the pan and push it up around the sides about 1 to 1.5 inches. Let
rest for a few minutes while preparing the rest of your toppings.

4. First sprinkle in one half cup of mozzarella cheese, then add veggies,
then sauce. Top with remaining mozzarella cheese, Italian seasonings
(dried basil, oregano, thyme, red pepper, etc.) and grated parmesan

5. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and
the cheese and sauce are bubbly. Let rest for 5 to 10 minutes before
cutting, then serve immediately.
