veggie pizza

veggie pizzaTonight I had a peanut butter sandwich – the kind where you slap pb on a slice of wheat bread, fold it over and shove in your mouth – and red wine, solo. Last night I ate this pizza with Sticky and the kids. Last night’s dinner totally kicks tonight’s booty…well, maybe not totally. The wine is really good.

veggie pizzaYou guys know I love pizza. And for the most part I like to keep it incredibly unassuming and simple. This version though, it is a little more time consuming than I traditionally go for. But all those roasted veggies on top of dough and a bed of cheese make it worth the extra effort. Trust me.

(Good decision for future Brandy because if I would have made that marinara then no wine for me tonight. That’s just sad.) We almost never put sauce on our pizza anyways so I figured it wasn’t going to make or break the recipe. And it didn’t because every bite was amazing.
