Grilled Vegetable and Goat Cheese Pizza

Grilled Vegetable and Goat Cheese Pizza
We really enjoyed this pizza that had the unexpected flavor of goat cheese. Loaded with roasted vegetable flavor, and light in the cheese department it's a delightful change of pace.

1 1/2 cups new potatoes cut into chunks
2 small zucchini sliced
1 yellow pepper, chopped
1 sweet onion, cut into thin slices
Olive oil
14 oz can fire roasted tomatoes, drained
1 t dried oregano
1/3 cup mozzarella cheese cubes
1/3 cup goats' cheese, crumbled
Pizza dough of choice

Preheat oven to 425. Move top rack up closer to the broiler. Cover a cookie sheet or broiler pan with aluminum foil. Place cut potatoes on pan and drizzle with olive oil - tossing to coat. Roast in the oven until soft - between 10 and 20 minutes, turning once. Remove potatoes from pan and set aside. Place the rest of the vegetables on the roasting pan, and roast for 4-5 minutes.

Flip the vegetables, and roast 4-5 minutes longer or until done.

Mix together oregano and diced tomatoes.

Spread over pizza dough, sprinkle with mozzarella cheese cubes  and bake for 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with the remaining vegetables. Sprinkle with goat cheese and bake for 8-10 minutes more or until crust is cooked through.
