Reviews for Roasted Veggie Pizza
"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. "
"This pizza looked and tasted yummy!"
"This is a great vegetarian dish! I double the amount of vegetables and spices. I also use pre-made pesto sauce. My husband and I both enjoy it!"
"This is a very delicious pizza! It is a favorite at our home! Also, there is no meat so it's great for vegetarians."
