Healthy, easy, substantial, plus delicious! I used a refrigerated pizza crust from a can and and few deli pieces of meat but other than that made as posted. I put in 1 cup of zucchini, prebaked the crust for 5 minutes before adding the pesto while I saute the veggies. Thank you Heartsong for sharing. Made for T,Y& M tag.
I used a store-bough white pizza dough. I didn't have enough sun-dried tomato pesto, so on half the pizza I had to used basil pesto. I used a red bell pepper, fresh button mushrooms. Maybe I cooked the veggies a bit longer, but I like them that way. On top, I used a roma tomato. This pizza has a lot of flavors. Thanks Heartsong :) Made for TYM tag game
