Healthy, Delicious Pizza Recipes
And why not go "green" when it comes to topping your pie? Explore various vegetable topping for your healthy pizza. If you have fresh vegetables from a garden or farmer's market, use those on your pizza. Wash, peel and slice or chop vegetables of your choice.
Saute the vegetables in olive oil before using them as a topping. Peppers, onions, garlic, diced tomatoes, mushrooms, and olives are typical pizza toppings. Spinach, squash, eggplant, carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower also make good, healthy toppings for your pizza.
If your schedule doesn't allow time for preparing fresh vegetables to use on your pizza, a good alternative is frozen vegetables. You can purchase frozen vegetable packages that have an assortment of vegetables in them that can be steamed in the microwave in less than ten minutes. All you have to do is cook and drain these vegetable packs, arrange vegetables on top of pizza and bake.
Don't fall into a rut with your pizza creations. Mix up the toppings. Try spinach with tomatoes and turkey bacon. Add an element of surprise to this pizza by mixing in a few mandarin orange slices with your vegetable toppings. Use barbecue sauce and grilled chicken with peppers and onions. For an unusual twist, add pineapple slices to this pizza. Broccoli, cauliflower and carrots make a good topping combination. Grilled or roasted vegetables taste great on a pizza.
