To use bell peppers for our pizza topping, we sauteed them in a skillet to soften them up and to bring out the flavor a bit.

First, we sliced and chopped!

Then, drizzled about 1 tablespoon of olive oil into the skillet.  We cooked the peppers one color at a time, just because we wanted to arrange them separately on our pizza.Rainbow Pepper Pizza. A great way to add nutrients to pizza...pile it with veggies!

We cooked our pizza crust first.  Spread pizza sauce, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheese on top of the crust. Then, after cooking our peppers for only about 3-4 minutes, we topped the crust with the peppers.  Then, we returned our pizza to the oven and cooked just long enough for the mozzarella underneath to melt.
