Let’s Get Started

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Heat a large sauté pan with olive oil to medium high temperature.
  • To the heated pan, add Mini Sweet Peppers, Green Beans, salt and pepper. Cook for approximately 2 minutes.
  • Roll the pizza dough out into a large rectangular shape, then gently fold the dough over. Using a pizza cutter, cut your dough into the shape of a heart. Place the dough on a pizza stone or a well-greased baking tray.
  • Spread pizza sauce evenly throughout the center of the dough, leaving ½ in. dry around the edges for the crust.
  • Next add half off the mozzarella cheese along with half of the cooked Mini Sweet Peppers and Green Beans. Repeat this step, using the remaining cheese and vegetables.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.
  • Remove pizza from the oven, and sprinkle with fresh basil.
  • To serve, sprinkle with your favorite pizza toppings, like crushed red pepper, oregano and parmesan cheese.
