I had this at a Pampered Chef party a long time ago and loved it. When I had one of my own a few months back I definitely wanted it on the menu! This is a treat for me (since I’m the only one in my house that will eat it-remember I married a meat and potatoes man!). It’s wonderful during the summer when there is fresh produce available but can be made any time of year.
1 pkg. refrigerated pizza crust
2 cloves of garlic (I use about 4 good-sized cloves)
1 cup shredded mozarella cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 small onion, sliced into rings
1 medium zucchini, sliced thin
1 cup sliced mushrooms
2 plum tomatoes, sliced
1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1-Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2-Roll the refrigerated pizza crust until it forms a circle and place on stone (I have a Pampered Chef stone. That is all that I have ever used to make this. Feel free to leave a comment stating if you’ve used another pan and how it worked).
3-Pop the pan with the pizza crust in the preheated oven for about 7 minutes.
4-Once I take the pizza crust out of the oven I usually poke a few holes in it with a fork to help it lay a little flatter.
5-Use a garlic press to press fresh garlic cloves on the pizza crust. I like to make sure it looks evenly distributed over the pizza.
6-Layer the remaining ingredients in the order listed in the ingredients section.
7-Bake for 15-18 minutes or until cheeses are melted & the crust is a light brown.
*Note on the cheese amount-I never measure the amount of cheese that I put on something. I like good coverage so I just go with what looks good to me.
I have not tried other fresh vegetables on this pizza since it uses some of my favorite (and I’m not good at changing things up-I’m the girl that orders the same exact thing at the restaurant every time I go). If there’s something different that you try on it let us know how you like it.
