Summer Veggie Pizza

This summer pizza is packed  full of tasty veggies and the addition of feta gives it a nice little punch with every bite. Local farmers' markets are packed full of gorgeous summer vegetables right now so go out and get them and give yourself the opportunity to use them with this easy recipe. This pizza is a wonderful change from the traditional pepperoni or sausage pizza that is a little lighter on the waistline but you are still getting that great pizza flavor!

You Will Need:
  • 1 ball pizza dough (white or wheat)
  • 1 1/4 cups pizza sauce
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 bag of mozzarella cheese (12 oz bag)
  • 1/2 cup sweet onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup red pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup green pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup yellow or white corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup zucchini, diced
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil

Here We Go:
  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees F
  • Roll out dough to desired thickness using your hands or a rolling pin if you have one
  • Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in small skillet and saute veggies until soft, roughly 5-7 minutes 
  • Rub pizza stone with remaining Tbsp of olive oil and place dough on pizza stone or baking sheet
  • Top dough with pizza sauce, cheeses and sauteed vegetables
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes on top rack, or until golden brown

Makes 8 Slices
Happy Feasting!

LOVE IT!!!! Its ok to eat pizza when there are tons of veggies on them! it kind of cancels out the cheese and makes you feel less guilty when you devour the entire pie! :)at least thats what I tell myself!
