Nifty Pizza #16 - KANSAS!

Somewhere over the rainbow....

After 10 months in Minnesota, it was time for KT to come home for a few weeks to celebrate the holidays!  Our schedule was jam-packed with people to see, places to go, celebrations to attend, and food to make.  One of the most important things on our to-do list was to create our sixteenth nifty pizza...Kansas!

We took our inspiration from what is possibly the most famous Kansas-centric story, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.  We went over a rainbow created from farm fresh vegetables which could have been picked by Uncle Henry himself!  Dorothy would have been so much happier in Kansas if while she was lamenting about her plight, she had just made this pizza.

Nifty Pizza #16 - Kansas!

Dough for 1 Pizza Crust
Pizza Sauce
Vegan Mozzarella Style Cheese
Grape Tomatoes, sliced
Orange Bell Pepper, sliced into strips
Yellow Squash, sliced
Zucchini Squash, sliced
Black Olives, sliced
Red Onion, diced
Vegan Parmesean Style Cheese
Italian Seasoning, Crushed Red Pepper, Salt, and Pepper, for garnish

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Slice and dice your colorful collection of vegetables.
3. Top your crust with pizza sauce, followed by vegan mozzarella.

4. Arrange the prepared vegetables in a rainbow like fashion! Like so:

5. Top the pie with a sprinkling of vegan parmesean cheese, crushed red pepper, salt, and pepper.

6. Slide your rainbow pizza into the oven and let bake for 10 minutes on the middle rack, and 10 minutes on the bottom rack.
7. Remove from oven, slice up your own piece of the rainbow, and be as happy as those "happy little blue birds."

As you can see, one pizza just wasn't enough for us.  We made two...A DOUBLE RAINBOW!!

KT is headed back North soon, but this break has been awesome.  We got to spend lots of time with family and friends, bake delicious treats, make amazing pizza, and enjoy our time together.  Because after all...

There's no place like home!

Peace, love, and Winkies
Pam and KT
