5. Roll dough into a ball using both hands and rotating in a circular and downward motion to stretch dough and form a smooth surface.  Coat dough ball with a little olive oil a place in a cover bowl to let rise for 2 hours no cooler than room temperature.

6. Remove dough, need for another minute and repeat balling process.  Brush with olive oil and let rest for at least another hour.  Dough can now be place in refrigerator overnight if desired or rolled into a pizza.

10. Spread cheese over sauce so it covers as much area as possible, but not on the crust.

11. Using a slotted spoon spread vegetables over cheese.

13. Preheat oven to 500 degrees with a pizza stone on the middle rack.  You can also use a flat baking pan with parchment paper sprinkled with corn meal.
