Veggie Pizza

I made this veggie pizza with a new pizza dough recipe.  The veggie pizza was awesome and the crust was nice and crisp.  I also loved the basil flavor of the tomato sauce.  In comparing this new pizza dough recipe to the first recipe, its definitely a bit different.  The first pizza dough recipe is more chewy and great for a thicker crust.  I really like the new pizza dough recipe because it seems better for a thin crust pizza.  Both pizza doughs are great for whatever you desire.  I hope you try this veggie pizza or make a pizza with you favorite toppings.  Enjoy!

3 or 4 mini peppers, diced
1 roma tomato, sliced

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Roll out dough and press down onto a greased baking sheet.

 Spoon basil tomato sauce onto rolled out pizza dough.

Top with vegetables.  Next top pizza with mozzarella cheese.  

Bake for 15-18 minutes, until edges of dough are crisp and cheese is melted.

Sprinkle basil on top of pizza.
