With this recipe, you can just as easily use a store-bought pastry sheet, especially if you are pressed for time. Provencal Tart is a great way to use up vegetables within your fridge. Though I would suggest trying this recipe prior to augmenting it, as I think it rocks.
You can term this another type of pizza, if you like, I love the combinations of peppers, olives, tomato and fetta. Provencal Tart is a stunning snack for Friday nights in front of the fire, with the family or watching sports. Simple to make, it is tasty, cost-effective, and something the kids can make.

Let’s Make a Difference
Every day we have the opportunity to make hundreds of choices. We are so fortunate to live in a time where information is so easily accessible and we have the opportunity and freedom to make choices that we feel are the best for us and our families.
I encourage you to continue educating yourself and others about the benefits of living a plant-based lifestyle. Cook a plant-based meal, opt-out of products like leather, watch a documentary with a family member or friend. It’s easy to feel like the choices we make are small, but when we make these choices together, we can make a big difference!
