Veggie Pizza

It's pizza time again! Harris Teeter has made making homemade pizza at home a breeze with their prepared pizza dough in the bakery section. Basically we're pizza pros (even though this is only our third pizza). We really enjoyed Mushroom and Brie Pizza and Pesto Pizza. We had lots of veggies in the fridge (mini peppers, mushrooms, and onions) so I thought the easiest way to use all those up would be to throw them on a pizza!

Even though I love Harris Teeter pizza dough since I had the day off (and we're pizza pros now) I thought it would be fun to use the dough hook on our stand mixer and make pizza dough! Unfortunately we're not pizza pros. That pizza dough did not work! Let this be inspiration to never let something that doesn't turn out the way you want it to bring you down... just make sure you always have a backup plan. I was prepared with Harris Teeter pizza dough since I didn't know if this would work. I may or may not try this again but that HT pizza dough is less than $3 and really good...

Veggie Pizza

Ingredients: vegetables, cheese, garlic, olive oil, seasonings, pizza dough

Chop up whatever veggies you have that you'd like on your pizza.

We love mushrooms, red onions, and mini peppers so we chopped those. I also experimented with sliced garlic but they lost their flavor so next time I will crush the garlic and rub it on the pizza crust with the oil.

Roll the pizza dough out onto your pizza stone. Brush some olive oil onto the pizza and sprinkle with some herbs. Then throw on the veggies and cheese. We usually use goat cheese and did this particular evening.

Then bake in a preheated 425F oven for about 15 minutes or until the crust is brown.
Serve immediately with a salad.
