    I have just made a pizza using fresh bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms. Is there a way to eliminate the excess liquid, I presume that comes from the veggies, on the pizza?

      None of the vegetables mentioned should create a moisture problem; I’m something of a fanatic on the subject, and usually put pepper pieces skin down, but it doesn’t really matter much. The main culprit is usually tomatoes; I usually use cherry tomatoes, halved and cut side up. Wet tomato sauces are another big problem- I make a sauce that’s reduced to a paste-like consistency; if you prefer a wetter sauce, or uncooked, restraint is about all you can do.
