Roasted Vegetable Pizza

Remember those other recipes we made this week?  The roasted vegetable skewers and the marinara sauce?  Well today we are putting the leftovers together into an even better recipe!  Roasted Vegetable Pizza!  We've found that homemade pizza is one of the best budget friendly recipes for using up the last bit of leftovers in your fridge.  The possibilities are endless, but this is one of our personal favorites!

-Pizza dough (store bought or homemade)
-Marinara sauce (enough to cover your dough evenly)
-2 cups shredded mozzarella (1 cup if you are making a small pie)
-1/2 cup roasted vegetables, cut into small pieces
-2 oz blue cheese crumbles

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Lightly grease or sprinkle some cornmeal on a pizza stone or baking pan.  We used a rectangular jelly roll pan for a larger pizza.  If you want to make your own dough, we suggest this super easy recipe from Smitten Kitchen.  We doubled the recipe for this pizza.  Roll dough thinly and spread evenly with marinara or pizza sauce.  Top with mozzarella, roasted vegetables, and blue cheese crumbles.  Bake for 15 minutes, or until crust is crisp and cheese is melted.

Homemade pizza... you never knew leftovers could be so delicious!
