Some of my readers make whole wheat pizza dough, homemade tomato sauce, own a pizza stone, and create amazing pies in their oven. Thank you for reading Snack-Girl, Martha Stewart.
The REST of us open a box and toss a frozen pie in a preheated oven waiting the 10 minutes it takes to heat and are finished. Or, we just call a number and a sweet teenager shows up with a steaming cardboard box.
There is a middle ground between the Martha's of the world and the rest of us. You just need to believe!
Simply add some of your favorite fresh vegetables to your favorite frozen pizza and you could look like a gourmet goddess.
For the pizza above, I used a Newman's Own Pepperoni Pizza. I hear that Amy's has a pretty great frozen pizza, too.
Then, I sliced mushrooms, green pepper, and pineapple and tossed it on before I put it in the oven.
Doesn't it look delicious? And it tastes SO much better than just the pizza alone - or the pizza with pre-frozen vegetables. The vegetables are going to add negligible calories to the finish product.
Get creative with this. All you have is apples and celery in your fridge? Try it! Take whatever fresh fruit or vegetable you have in your fridge and create something new.
Pizza is an excellent "vegetable delivery device" for kids and adults. Broccoli, spinach, kale, and other green things (that people hate) just taste better with cheese.
As for take-out pizza, just make sure they put lots of vegetables on it. Just avoid Evil Pizza!
What do you add to pizza to make it nutritious? Please share!
