Roasted Veggie Pizza Recipe

A bold, flavorful garlic and basil pesto sauce is an awesome change of pace from traditional tomato-based pizza sauce. Roasted vegetables are a fantastic topping. Whenever I serve it alongside a standard meat pizza, this one's always the first to go!

MY REVIEW

"Good recipe. I like to make my own bread crust for pizza, so I paired this with TOH's "Perfect Pizza Crust" recipe. It made a very thick crust which was excellent. I made a few tweaks to the recipe the second time I made it: I added a small amount of salt to the pesto sauce; and when roasting the veggies, I covered them loosely with foil so they wouldn't be too soggy. We like peppers, too, so the amount could easily be doubled. "
