Vegetarian Pizza.........yum

2 Tablespoons olive oil ( I use EVOO)                                   1 garlic clove, minced
1 large onion, chopped                                                           1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 cup cauliflower florets coarsely chopped                              1 prepared pizza crust 12-16"
1/2 cup broccoli florets, coarsely chopped                              1 cup pizza sauce
1 small carrot, shredded                                                         2 medium mushrooms, sliced
1/2 teaspoon salt                                                                    1/4 cup prepared basil pesto (optional)
1/8 teaspoon pepper                                                               1/2 cup Asiago cheese (optional)

Preheat oven to 450*. In large frying pan, heat oil, medium high heat. 
Add onions and cook until softened, a few minutes.
Add califlower, broccoli, carrots. 
Reduce heat to medium.
Cook veggies until they are crisp tender.
Add salt, pepper, garlic, oregano.

Place pizza crust on baking sheet.
Spoon pizza sauce evenly over crust.
Place mushrooms over sauce.
Spoon cooked veggies onto crust and spread evenly.

If you use basil pesto, drizzle on top of veggies and add Asiago cheese.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is crisp.

Note: I like to add sun dried tomato and leave off the basil pesto and Asiago cheese.
I use a cheese I prefer.
Happy eating!
