Healthy pizza

Years ago I read an article that suggested building your pizza with vegetables first and cheese last.  This simple change ends up providing less surface area to pile on the cheese and the vegetables make it healthy.  This is one of my favorite combinations but add whatever vegetables you like:

Vegetable pizza

  • 1 whole wheat prepared pizza crust
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 package mushrooms, cleaned, stemmed and sliced
  • 1 can artichoke hearts, rinsed, drained and quartered
  • 1/2 cup of shredded Mozzarella cheese

Top pizza crust with sauce and then pile on vegetables.  Sprinkle on cheese and a little oregano.  (I added a couple of anchovies on my side.)  Bake on a pizza stone in a preheated 425 oven for about 10 minutes.

If you are craving meat, a little bit of prosciutto would be delicious with this combination and would only add a little bit of guilt!

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
