I love summer vegetables. Unfortunately, I never was much of a gardener so I usually have to rely on local farmer's markets. I've been able to get a lot of really good veggies this year so a few nights back I made one of my favorite meals, a simple veggie pizza.
I started out with my mom's basic crust recipe and rolled the dough out into my pizza pan.
Then (this is my favourite!) instead of using tomato sauce I brushed the crust with extra-virgin olive oil and added fresh basil and garlic.
Then I chopped up a green pepper and added that over the top. Then I sliced up some tomatoes and a zucchini (all fresh of course) and spread those around too.
Finally I topped it off with some mozzarella cheese and into the oven it went.
And out it came.
Oh yes. That was one good pizza.
I love homemade pizza. Takeout pizza can be fun and I love it, but sometimes nothing beats a good homemade one :)
