I had one of those nights at work last night where I had to keep my eyes pried open with toothpicks. It was miserable..I hate feeling that exhausted! Now I’m home and can’t go to bed until my fiance comes home…think bloodshot, dry, 500,000,000 pound eyelids…exhaustion is not strong enough of a word.

Moving on to the good stuff..this pizza. ohh this pizza…Wonderful, succulent roasted vegetables on top of a fluffy, whole wheat crust, smeared with a tangy and divine spinach pesto…and layered with melted gooey cheese..ugh meh god..glorious.

Use any veggies your little heart desires..add chicken if you have men around..grill it up..you know..just do your thang! Enjoy this scrumptious flat-bread!
