This is a good pizza with a nice blend of flavors - a bit different from our usual way of serving it. I liked the crust and the mixture of tomatoes, veggies and herbs instead of tomato sauce. I used the shredded cheese I had on hand - a four cheese Italian combo and a cheddar-jack blend. I also added some black olives. Thanks for posting!
