Vegetarian Times. Yay for pizza! Serves 6? Hahaha... that's funny.

- 2 garlic cloves, minced (2 tsp.)
- 3⁄4 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 (13 7/8 ounce) packagerefrigerated prepared pizza dough
- 4 ounces goat cheese, crumbles (1 cup)

- Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add tomatoes, mushrooms, onion, and chard stems. Cook 10 minutes, or until vegetables are tender and tomatoes are soft, stirring occasionally.
- Add garlic, chili powder, and chard leaves. Season with salt and pepper. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 2 minutes, or until chard is wilted.

I made this with home-made pizza crust, garlic-scape pesto rather than the oil/garlic mix, and portobello mushrooms. What a delightful pizza.
This was a great spin on pizza and a nice break from the "same old". I omitted the olive oil as I didn't think the recipe needed it; all of the veggies had enough liquid in them to keep things from burning/sticking. I used 10 oz regular tomatoes and white mushrooms as they were already on hand, and a lot more garlic than called for. That said, we ended up sprinkling garlic powder over our slices at the table. I also used a combo of fresh mozzarella and sundried tomato feta, and it was really lovely. I think next time I might add a little cayenne for kicks. DH even liked this, and he's a dyed-in-the-wool carnivore. Thanks for posting! Oh, and I agree--this does NOT serve 6. DH and I ate all but about 1/8 of it in one sitting!
