Roasted Vegetable Pizza. The combination of pizza and vegetables is the best match up. Pizza can be full of fat, preservatives and chemicals, but with a gluten free homemade crust and fresh vegetables, it is a healthy twist on the old favorite.
Roasting makes everything taste better, and of course, clean up is much easier. One of the best things about vegetable pizza, is that it can be made with a myriad of vegetables. If you don't have all of the ingredients listed, you can always mix it up to use any vegetables that you have on hand. If you are short on time, you can use a pre-cooked pizza crust, but I love this gluten free crust. Try it, you will love it and of course, feel free to experiment. Vegan, gluten free, dairy free.
