Veggie Pizza


Most Mondays I need something easy to cook, and pizza is a good choice. Of course, dough prepared from scratch is best. But if you are in a hurry, you can pick up fresh dough from some grocery stores. And if you forget that, dough from a can or pre-baked pizza dough is not a bad choice. Below is a quick recipe for a nice veggie pizza. The other good thing about pizza is that anything goes for toppings. Just top with what you like. I could not resist adding some prosciutto.
