This is an everything-in-the-fridge pizza, so you can just leave things out if they aren't in your fridge or add in things that are. I happened to have a lot of Mediterranean-y things in the fridge and so they all go together very well! This would also be great just with the garlic, cheese, olives, and roasted red peppers for a much simpler 'za. Maybe with roasted garlic! I love this pizza recipe with roasted garlic and ricotta.
Roasted red peppers are the best. To make roasted red (or any color obviously) peppers, slice a pepper in half longways and clean out the ribs and seeds. Put it on a baking sheet lined with foil and coat in olive oil. Then broil on low for about 7-8 minutes or bake at 450 for 10-15 minutes. Then put the peppers in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let them sit for about 15 minutes. Then peel the skin off and rip into strips or slice with a knife.
