Praise the good Lord Cheesus Crust! #blessed

Ingredients:

  • 1 flatbread pizza crust (I prefer to get mine from a natural food store. Premade crusts can have lots of mystery ingredients, so in this case it’s best to splurge on a quality crust.)
  • 2 to 3 fresh tomatoes (Tomatoes on the vine are best. Gently squeeze them to see if they are ripe, they should feel slightly firm.)
  • 1/2 yellow pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 orange pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium head of broccoli, cut into bite sized trees
  • 1 small onion (purple will be prettiest!)
  • 4 to 6 cloves of garlic, chopped (I like lots of garlic, free to do more or less to taste)
  • 2 to 3 tbsp olive oil
  • goat cheese
  • fresh grated Parmesan
  • Italian seasoning  (or any mix of dried basil, oregano, parsley, marjoram, thyme, and rosemary. Salt-free is best, because the goat cheese is salty.)

Slice, slice baby! This pizza is tomatotally delicious, crust me!

Directions:

  • Read package directions on the pizza crust. Most require you to preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  • Put about 1 tbsp of olive oil in a pan and heat over medium heat. Do not use too much oil or the veggies will get soggy later on.
  • Add broccoli and saute until just cooked (the florets will be a darker green, and the stems will be very slightly browned)
  • Add in peppers and cook for 2 mins
  • Add in onions and garlic
  • Cook to desired doneness. Veggies should still be crunchy, but not raw. The onions should be translucent. If there is any excess oil or moisture in the pan, gently soak it up with a paper towel.
  • While veggies are cooking, slice tomatoes. Use a serrated knife to cut the tomato in half, and cut lengthwise to get half circle slices
  • Once the oven is heated, most pizza crusts require it to be turned back down to 425. Do this now.
  • Put pizza crust on a pizza stone or a round, oven-safe tray. Drizzle about 1 tbsp of olive oil on the pizza crust and spread with an oil brush or the back of a spoon.
  • Arrange the tomato slices on the crust.
  • Top with desired amount of sauted veggies (I like a lot of veggies, so I used them all. But if you don’t use them all, put the rest in a plastic or glass container and store in the fridge. They are great over pasta or in an omelette.)
  • Top with desired amount of cheese. Sprinkle the Parmesan and use your fingers to crumble the goat cheese into small chunks.
  • Sprinkle with Italian seasoning to taste.
  • Place pizza in oven and cook according to crust package directions, usually about 8 to 10 mins. Cook until the crust has reached desired crispiness and the goat cheese is slightly browned.
  • Once out of the oven, let it sit for about 3 to 5 mins. Slice and enjoy!
