Pizza Friday: The Veggie Pizza I Want To Marry

I think I'm getting pretty good at this pizza thing.

Today, I was originally going to eat leftovers from last night's Taco Night for lunch.

Aaaaaand when I woke up this morning, I saw that I left the taco meat out on the counter all night. Go me.

So, decided to use up some tomatoes I had on hand and go for a nice veggie-tastic pizza.

I started out my crust, and I actually tossed the plain crust in the oven for two minutes before topping it, since I was working with some pretty wet toppings.

Partly cooked pizza crust, topped with tomatoes went in for another two minutes.

Add some canned/drained artichokes, and some garlic. A tomato/garlic pizza has been on my mind... I don't know if it was last weekend or the weekend before, but it was the Printer's Row Book Fair downtown. I was about 12 or 13 when I went there with my friend from church, Erin. Erin lived in our neighborhood, but she went to school in Chicago. It was quite exciting that we got to take the train downtown by ourselves, no parents, and then walk over to the book fair before having lunch at Uno's. And Erin ordered us her favorite pizza... tomato and garlic. And it was good.

Oh yeah, add cheese. Without cheese, it's just flatbread. I also added some oregano from the garden.

Out of the oven.....

For a meatless meal, I sure liked this. A lot. I considered marrying this pizza, until I decided that I'd rather just finish it off. Urph.
