Thinly slice the peppers, red onion, and the garlic.
In a skillet, add 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt.
Saute the vegetables, stirring often, for about 7 to 10 minutes, until browned and very soft.
Stir in the oregano and remove from the heat.
Bake the cannabis veggie pizza
Spread the pizza sauce over the dough using the back of a spoon to create a thin layer. Sprinkle with the vegetables, drained capers, and Parmesan cheese.
Bake the pizza at 450F until the cheese and crust are nicely browned, about 5 to 7 minutes in the oven.
While the pizza is baking, mix the baby arugula with a drizzle of miss envy olive oil and a pinch of kosher salt. When the pizza is done, top with the arugula.
Slice into pieces and serve immediately.
