Directions

To Marinate the Vegetables
In a mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Combine vegetables and marinate at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.

To Grill the Vegetables
On an outdoor grill, over a medium high heat, cook vegetables about 4 to 5 minutes per side or until browned on both sides. Remove from grill and allow to cool. Chop vegetables into ½'' pieces and mix together.

To Prepare Pizzas
Heat oven to 400°F. Brush olive oil on top of each crust. Spread Vegetable and Pasta sauce evenly over crust – keep outer edge of crust free of sauce. Place 1 cup of grilled vegetables over top of sauce. Sprinkle Mozzarella and Gouda cheese over the top of the vegetables. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve immediately.
