A colorful pizza. A great way to use up summer produce. You can use a store bought pizza dough or make your own. From Williams-Sonoma with some minor changes to fit our taste.

Wonderful pizza! With the olive oil and tomatoes instead of tomato sauce it had the feel of a gourmet pizza. I would strongly recommend including all the tomato called for in the recipe, as it gives the pizza a sweet flavour. We will certainly use this recipe again.
