Holiday Pizza Extravaganza #1

The Méndez family loves pizza--that's not unusual, among families. Ana, however, coming late to our traditions, might be more willing than others to experiment with less traditional dishes on special occasions. For some reason, over the New Year holiday her thoughts often turn to experimenting with pizza. Here's one of her experiments that her family enjoyed.

It does not start with the usual tomato sauce. Instead, she mixed a thick paste of dijon mustard and olive oil--that's the base. Onto that is laid a combination of sauteed bell peppers, onions, and zucchini slices. Finally, on top go slices of a nice brie cheese.

The result is a tasty, vegetarian pizza nicely set off by the dijon mustard. Notice that Ana, despite being a competent mathematician, cares little to make her pizzas round!
