  • Stir 1/4 cup warm water, the shortening and sugar into the softened yeast. Add the flour mixture, stirring to combine. Form into a ball.

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a 12-inch circle. Fit into a 12-inch pizza pan. Build up edges slightly.** Bake crust in a 375 degree F oven for 9 minutes.

  • For sauce, stir together the tomato sauce, finely chopped onion, garlic, oregano, basil, and black pepper.

  • Spread sauce on prebaked crust. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Arrange vegetables over sauce. Sprinkle with mozzarella and cheddar cheeses.

  • Bake in the 375 degree F oven about 20 minutes or until vegetables are hot and cheeses are melted. Remove from oven; sprinkle with chopped tomato. Makes 4 servings.

**

If you like, snip the edge of the pizza crust with kitchen scissors for a decorative edge.

*

If you like, slice the tomato and arrange it with other fresh vegetables on the crust instead of chopping the tomato and sprinkling it over the pizza.
