Roasted Vegetable Pizza from Scratch

If I had to name one guilty pleasure it would absolutely be pizza! There is something about fluffy crust topped with tomato sauce and melted cheese that just gets me hungry.

Solution: pizza from scratch in less than an hour! Making your own pizza is really easy, I promise! And the ingredients are wholesome and won’t make you feel icky after 🙂 Continue reading
