Printer Friendly Recipe

1 prepared pizza dough

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 large garlic clove, minced

1/4 cup Italian cheese(s) such as Mozzarella, Asiago, Parmesan, Fontina

1/8 cup feta cheese

1 zucchini, sliced

1 yellow squash, sliced

1/2 purple onion, halved and sliced

1 or 2 fresh Roma tomatoes (I've done this with cherry tomatoes too!)

Good quality coarse sea salt

freshly cracked pepper

Preheat oven to 550 degrees F, or your ovens highest temperature with rack in upper part of oven, preferably with a pizza stone, for at least one hour.

In a small bowl, combine olive oil with garlic. Roll out pizza dough on a floured surface until it's about 1/4 inch thick (place on parchment paper if you're a novice pizza chef!). Brush pizza dough with garlic olive oil. Sprinkle with cheeses. Top with veggies (except basil). Lightly brush veggies with garlic oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Transfer pizza (with parchment if using) to pizza stone, or cookie sheet if you don't have a stone. Bake 8-10 minutes. Top with basil.
