Garden Pizza!

Two nights ago we made our own pizza.

We picked up some whole wheat pizza dough from Wegmans.  First we roasted some sliced banana peppers and bell peppers from our garden (and artichokes from the Wegmans olive bar) on a pan in the oven for probably 10-15 minutes.  In my experience, this helps prevent a soggy pizza later on.

We used some pesto that we made with farmer's market basil a couple weeks ago and had frozen (our basil we planted never really took off) on the dough.  We added a little shredded "pizza cheese" (a mozzarella/provolone blend - not from our garden).

Then we put the roasted peppers and artichokes on the pizza and stuck it in the oven.  Toward the end we added sliced tomatoes (from our garden) and popped it back in the oven for a little bit. Adding the tomatoes toward the end also helps prevent a soggy pizza, and I think it prevents the tomatoes from getting mushy too.  It tasted great! and it gave us each lunch for the following two days.

Ta Da!  Hubby slicing up the Pizza.
