Recipe Instructions

In this recipe, the vegetables are cooked in a flavorful citrus-vermouth mixture. You can, however, skip the procedure and use plain steamed or sauteed vegetables. A strong extra-virgin olive oil is a must for flavor, as its drizzled over the pizza at the very end.

1. Preheat oven to 375F.

2. Combine first 7 ingredients in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Add zucchini, squash, and bell pepper; reduce heat, and simmer 4 minutes. Add mushrooms; simmer 2 minutes. Drain well; discard liquid and peppercorns.

3. Place pizza crust on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with half of beta; top with vegetable mixture. Sprinkle with remaining feta and parsley. Bake at 375for 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated (cheese will not melt). Drizzle with olive oil.
