Roasted Veggie Pizza

A bold, flavorful garlic and basil pesto sauce is an awesome change of pace from traditional tomato-based pizza sauce. Roasted vegetables are a fantastic topping. Whenever I serve it alongside a standard meat pizza, this one's always the first to go!

    I'm not usually a fan of veggie pizzas, but this had a really good, garlicky flavor, and the veggies didn't make the crust soggy. Very good

    Good recipe. I made a few tweaks to this the second time I made it: I added a small amount of salt to the pesto sauce; and when roasting the veggies, I covered them loosely with foil so they wouldn't be too soggy.

    This is a great vegetarian dish! I double the amount of vegetables and spices. I also use pre-made pesto sauce. My husband and I both enjoy it!

    This is a very delicious pizza! It is a favorite at our home! Also, there is no meat so it's great for vegetarians.
