Veggie Luv-ers Pizza


One Kontos 7-inch ready-made pizza crust (more crispy option – grill for 1 min. before topping grilled side up)

1 ½ oz. sliced red onions
1 ½ oz. sliced black olives
1 ½ oz. total (½ oz of each) diced red, green, and yellow bell peppers

  2. Evenly spread the tomato pizza sauce over the Kontos’pizza crust.
  3. Evenly spread the Mozzarella cheese over the top of the pizza sauce.
  4. Top with the bell pepper mixture, black olives and sliced red onions.
  5. Place topped pizza into the oven, directly on rack for crispy crust, on a pan for soft crust.
  6. Bake for approx. 5 minutes, or a minute or two less in a convection oven; remove from oven with a baking sheet or pizza spatula.
  7. Let cool for 1-2 minutes, slice into 4-6 slices and enjoy!
