I'm not usually a fan of veggie pizzas, but this had a really good, garlicky flavor, and the veggies didn't make the crust soggy. Very good

Good recipe. I made a few tweaks to this 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.

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.
