Another challenge in the Sammie group and it was to make a sandwich with carrots and olives. Well I LOVE olives and I knew it had to be a pizza, so this is what I came up with. Sweet & seasoned roasted carrots, 3 kinds of olives, onions and some bacon along with a little greek seasoning and 3 kinds of grated cheese.

Gotta love olives to love this pizza! The combination of the sweet carrots and salty olives works well together. It's funny how the carrots end up looking like pepperoni too.
