Pizza pizza pizza

Leftover veggies can be used in a lot dishes, but one of my favorites and a crowd pleaser is pizza.  It's an easy way to just throw everything together, add some cheese, and have a fantastic meal.  This is a pretty common theme of mine...  add cheese and enjoy!

During the summer I like to grill pizza, but there's still a few more months to go until the grilling edition of Fridgespiration...

What's in the fridge:
- Frozen pizza dough (thawed)
- 1 tbsp garlic oil (or reg olive oil)
- 2 Tomatoes thinly sliced
- Med. bunch of asparagus cut into inch long pieces
- 2 tbsp sour cream
- 2 tbsp sun dried tomatoes
- 1/3 cup thinly sliced onions
- 1 1/2 cup Monteray Jack

- Preheat oven to 400
- Roll out pizza dough and place on greased cookie sheet.  Make a crust by flattening the dough around the perimeter about 1/2 an inch from the edge.  *I have a hard time getting it the shape I want... suggestions welcome!  Poke with fork to avoid large air bubbles.
- Bake dough for 10 minutes and remove from oven

Dough after 10 min

- Spread evenly on the dough: garlic oil (or olive oil), sundried tomatoes, sour cream 

Pizza base

- Spread evenly: asparagus, tomatoes and onion.  Top evenly with chesse.

Almost ready for the oven

- Return pizza to oven for 10 more minutes.
- Let cool then slice!
Bon Appetit!
