Veggie Pizza

Submitted by Haydee

You don't need exact measurements. It's all about taste.
On a pizza crust (homemade or store bought) halfway cooked.
a thin layer of pesto
a layer of thinly sliced tomato(es)
a layer of spinach
marinated artichoke hearts
feta cheese
Bake at 350ºF. for about 10 min.

This is the pizza crust I use. It is easy and fast. I bake it for 10 minutes and then another 10 with the toppings.

1 package regular or quick active dry yeast
1 cup warm water (105º to 115º)
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
Olive or vegetable oil
Dissolve yeast in warm water in medium bowl. Stir in flour, 2 tablespoons oil and salt. Beat vigorously 20 strokes. Cover and let rest 20 minutes.
Move oven rack to lowest position. Heat oven to 425º. Grease 2 cookie sheets or 12-inch pizza pans with oil. Sprinkle with cornmeal. Divide dough in half; pat each half into 11-inch circle on cookie sheet with floured fingers. Prick dough thoroughly with fork. Bake about 10 min. or until crust just begins to brown.
You can make the crust ahead of time in the day to save some time and then make the pizza later when you are ready to eat it. Enjoy. Haydee.
