20-minute Vegan Pizza

Last night I made a pizza.  It was quick and easy.

Here's what I used:

Mama Mary's Gourmet Pizza Sauce 
Mama Mary's Thin & Crispy Pizza Crust (Frozen)
Black Olives
Banana Peppers

(Mama Mary's is found in Wal-Mart in the open-refrigerated area with the Hummus and gourmet cheeses and things like that)

On one half I made a mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, tomato, and mushroom pizza for my fiance whom obviously is not Vegan.  For myself I skipped the cheese and pepperoni and cut up the veggies listed above.

Pre-heat the oven at 450.  Coat the pre-made frozen crust with olive oil (I used a spray olive oil).  Smooth on the pizza sauce with a spoon, pile on the toppings, and pop into the oven.  Immediately reduce heat to 425 and bake for about 8 minutes or so.  Take out and let cool for 3-5 minutes.  Sprinkle with garlic powder and crushed red pepper and enjoy!

Super quick, super tasty.  The cucumbers and avocados were something new, and actually tasted pretty good!

**I would ultimately liked my toppings to be cooked a bit more..  I would suggest cooking the pizza for about 5 or 6 minutes and then broiling it for 2 or so.   You'll just have to check on it to make sure it doesn't burn.  After the 8 minutes in the oven I tried to broil it but of course I couldn't because the crust was already done and it'd just burn.**
