"This recipe reminds me of my mother. When my kids were little and they went to stay with her, she would try and trick them into eating vegetables by putting them on a pizza crust and covering them with cheese. This one tastes good though! Using a hot cast iron skillet really gets the bottom of the crust nice and crispy, and using pre-bagged veggies to steam makes it quick."
