Garden Vegetable Pizza

Our garden continues to flourish.  Tonight's pizza was topped with squash, zucchini, yellow grape tomatoes, sweet banana peppers, red bell peppers, basil and oregano.  Cubes of fresh mozzarella and Parmesan added the perfect touch of ooey gooey goodness.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Place pizza stone in the oven to preheat with the oven.  If you don't have a pizza stone, place crust on a pizza pan.

When the pizza stone is preheated, place pizza crust on top and begin layering your toppings. 

Spread a thin layer of your favorite pizza sauce.  Top with minced garlic. 

I sliced half of a zucchini and half a yellow squash very, very thinly and placed them in a circular pattern over the sauce, slightly overlapping them.

Next came thin slices of red bell pepper and thinly sliced sweet banana peppers.  I halved the yellow tomatoes and placed them in the gaps of the other veggies.

I had a ball of mozzarella and sliced off a nice chunk and then cubed that up and grated some fresh Parmesan over the entire pizza.  A few fresh oregano leaves and shredded basil scattered on top and it was ready for the oven.

Bake for 12 - 15 minutes until the cheese is melted and the vegetables are softened.  Let the pizza rest for a few minutes before slicing.
