"For the pizza crust we used Boboli mini original crusts. In recipe photo, pizza was topped with broccoli, asparagus, Brussels sprouts, and green peppers. All but the green peppers were frozen and microwaved according to directions on package prior to adding to pizza. If looking for more crunch, you may want to use more fresh options but those were the veggies on hand hence why this recipe is so versatile! Enjoy!"
