Happy Wednesday (and August!), my friends! If you have a minute, perhaps you’ll pop over to Ethical Ocean and vote for my Sweet Potato & Black Bean Quesadillas!? You do need to register (if this is your first time voting) but it just takes a second… and don’t forget to keep voting every day!
This is less a recipe and more of a… suggestion. The suggestion being: Get your butt to your local farmers market, buy every veggie that looks good, and put it on a damn pizza already!
My pizza (which is actually a mini-pizza, which used about 1/4 of a pre-made loaf of whole wheat dough from my local health food store- very cute!) has zucchini, tomatoes, grilled corn, leeks, onions and bell peppers. Also, instead of pizza sauce I opened a small can of fire roasted tomatoes. And, of course, it’s all topped with Daiya mozzarella!
Another interesting tidbit: Other than the corn (which I grilled on the cob, then sliced the kernels off), all the veggies on there were raw when I started. And although they were heated while the pizza cooked, they retained much of their crispy-freshness, which was a nice contrast from the veggie pizzas I’m used to.
The beauty of a pizza like this is that you can put whatever you want on there! And if you stick with the individual sized crusts, each member of your family can create their own masterpiece!
