Homemade Roasted Veggie Pizza

There is something quite magical about pizza. Whether it be a thin or thick crust, classic mozzarella or extravagant goat cheese, veggies or pepperoni, these ingredients create an irresistible combination.

I’m a firm believer that pizza shops don’t need any kind of marketing because the aroma that comes across as you walk by is promotion enough. Home-made pizza accentuates all the awesomenss of this typically fast-food item.

Plus, not gonna lie, rolling out the dough is a great time. This pizza creation has loads of veggie goodness complete with caramelized onions and mushrooms, fire-roasted red peppers and roasted broccoli and eggplant.
