Quick Veggie Pizza
This is a super simple way to redeem a frozen pizza and make it more nutritious for a quick meal after kids’ sporting events.
Amy’s brand or other natural-brand pizza – best to choose cheese and add your own toppings, rather than buying into all the fat found in pepperoni pizza.
Small broccoli florets
Halved cherry tomatoes
Baby spinach leaves
Sliced sweet red peppers
Small asparagus spears
Sliced sweet red onion
Slice black olives
Any leftover protein: i.e. grilled chicken or shrimp
Remove the pizza from packaging, and follow directions for warming the oven. Place your chosen ingredients on top of the pizza, and stick in the oven. Bake per the directions on the box. The pizza will be nicely cooked, and the veggies will be cooked but not overdone, so they’ll still hold their flavor.
Stick to two pieces of pizza per person to be mindful of portions. If this isn’t enough to satisfy big appetites, then add fruit ~ i.e. grapes, strawberries, sliced apples ~ or a quick green salad as a side. This will keep you from loading up on several pieces of pizza.
