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!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 to 10 medium fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 1/2 cup sliced green pepper
  • 1/2 cup sliced sweet red pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive or vegetable oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon each oregano, thyme and dried rosemary, crushed
  • PESTO SAUCE:
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup olive or vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 prebaked Italian bread shell crust (1 pound)
  • 1 large tomato, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions

  • 1. Place mushrooms, onion and peppers in a roasting pan or baking pan lined with heavy-duty foil. Combine oil, garlic, oregano, thyme and rosemary; drizzle over vegetables and toss to coat. Cover and bake at 400° for 20 minutes.
  • 2. Meanwhile, for sauce, combine basil, oil, Parmesan cheese and garlic in a food processor or blender; cover and process until smooth, scraping sides often. Set aside. Place the crust on an ungreased 12-in. pizza pan. Spread with sauce; top with the tomato slices. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Top with roasted vegetables. Bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Yield: 8 slices.

"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."
