Roasted Vegetable Pizza

veggie pizza

I created this recipe one day after having an abundance of vegetables.  It is the perfect combination of flavors, texture and taste.  Try it out, I do not think you will be disappointed.

Vegetable topping
2 cups broccoli florets
1 – 2 cups asparagus spears, cut into 2 inch pieces
2 cups grape tomatoes, cut in half

Place all on a cookie sheet, toss with olive oil and salt and pepper. Roast in a 400° oven for 10 – 15 minutes. Remove and cool.

Pizza Dough
3 cups flour
1 package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 cup warm water

Add yeast to warm water and let stand for five minutes.
Place all ingredients in a food processor bowl and process until the mixture forms into a ball and pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
Place dry ingredients in a bowl and add remaining ingredients. Mix together until all is combined, knead on a flour covered wooden board until elastic and smooth. If dough is too dry, add additional water, one tablespoon at a time, until dough is formed.

Place dough in a greased bowl, cover and let rise for 30 minutes.

Punch down dough and remove dough from bowl; roll or stretch into a 12 inch disk. Place disk in an oiled pizza pan and pat to the edges of the pan. Cover and let rest for 5 minutes.

Place roasted vegetables over the pesto
Top with 4 ounces of crumbled goat cheese
