Mid-summer means plenty of delicious ripe tomatoes! Here’s a fun way to use up a few and add in any other veggies you might have on hand. This pizza would be great with zucchini, onions, peppers, etc. I roasted my veggies first to add another layer of flavor that helps make this pizza taste amazing. You could also add leftover meats such as smoked sausage, diced ham or rotisserie chicken. A caesar salad would be a great side to serve with this pizza.
