Microwave-in-bag fresh vegetables help this meal come together lickety-split. A hot cast-iron skillet helps to crisp the bottom of the crust while the surface gets golden brown under the broiler--no baking required. You can find whole-grain, fresh pizza dough in the refrigerated section of the bakery at your local grocery store.
