Roasted Veggie Pizza

November 28, 2011


I came up with this pizza one Sunday afternoon while running–do other people think about food while they run too? I was puzzling over how to use what was in the fridge (cauliflower and broccoli–two winners!). After I “pitched” the idea, my husband made these dreams into a melt-in-our-mouths reality.
