Help with Trader Joe's Pizza Dough

Hi all... I got some TJ's pizza dough (the one with the herbs in it), and was wondering if anyone has used it before and had any tips. The package says the temperature and time at which to bake it, but are these directions good? Should I prebake the crust a bit?

Also, I have never really made pizza before - I plan on topping it with a quick tomato sauce with lemon zest, fresh mozzarella, and some thinly sliced crimini, caramelized shallots, zucchini, thinly sliced garlic, and possibly some arugula. Should I cook the veggies beforehand (obviously the shallots I will have to, in order to caramelize, but the other ones)?

Thanks!!
