Home Made Asian Pizza

I like to buy pre-made dough at the grocery store and use it to make home made pizza.  Occasionally I like to experiment with different toppings.  Thankfully the dough is enough to make two pizzas, because if it were up to the kids we would be as adventurous as cheese.  Or on a really crazy night, the kids might add pepperoni - but then Biniam would secretly cut around the evil little circles as he sliced it up.

So the other night I looked in my produce drawer and pulled out the veggies I had - red pepper, green onion, carrots, and asparagus.  I julienne-sliced the carrots, cut the pepper and green onion really small, and bias-cut the asparagus.

For the sauce, I used the most amazing asian dressing ever (see recipe below).  Then I topped with mozzarella cheese, sprinkled the veggies all over, then sprinkled a little feta cheese on top. 

I cooked at 400 for about 12-15 minutes.  Then when I pulled the pizza out I drizzled a balsamic glaze over the top.  This is where the pizza got a little confused about it's Asian heritage and went a little Mediterranean.  But hey, it worked! 

Finished product was Yum-O!  Seriously, I couldn't stop eating it.  But that happens to me a lot. 

Asian Dressing:

1/3 C rice vinegar
3 T soy sauce
4 tsp Asian Seasoning Mix (Pampered Chef)*
2 tsp sugar
3/4 C veg. oil

*Seasoning substitute:
2 tsp. grated fresh ginger
3/4 tsp salt
1 clove garlic (minced)
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (or a combo of black pepper and red pepper flakes)
