I feel that one of my jobs in life is to take a food that most people would call "unhealthy" and make a healthy version!!! Here is one of the ways we make pizza at our house. What you will need:
- Whole wheat tortillas (one per pizza)
- a jar of pasta sauce
- shredded cheese
- 1/2 cup of ground veggies (carrots, spinach, broccoli, zucchini or any other vegetable you have on hand to put in your sauce)
- Toppings for pizza that your family likes!
The first thing I do is get my sauce ready! Get out your food processor, magic bullet, or coffee bean grinder because we need about 1/2 cup of ground up veggies! For mine I used spinach and carrots. Dark greens are soooo good for us but kids normally don't eat them so I choose spinach a lot to grind up and add to my recipes. Also, spinach doesn't add any bad taste! For this you can use anything you have on hand but a tip is to try and use the stuff your children don't eat when cooked normally.
