New pizza recipe for pizza night!

PIZZA NIGHT calls for a New pizza recipe creation...


Tonight I created a delicious veggie pizza with a crust that does not have to raise.  The dough takes about 10 minutes to make and then you top your pizza, bake 20 minutes and dinner is served.

This pizza features the following toppings:

  • Spinach picked fresh from the garden 
  • Broccoli
  • Homemade tofu bacon
  • Carrots
  • Onion
  • homemade cashew parmesan crumbles
  • Mozzarella soy cheese on half the pizza 

*I rarely if ever eat soy cheese because whole foods are much healthier and soy cheese is highly processed and high in fat, but once in a while I use it on half the pizza for my family because they really enjoy it.  It is a great transitional food for those who have had previous cheese addictions but should be slowly weaned out of the diet.
Homemade Caesar Dressing

This Caesar dressing is one of my famous signature recipes, I created a new lower fat version tonight.  It makes a delicious compliment to pizza night!

**Notice this plate has more salad than pizza, that is the key to health and weight loss.  Veggies should dominate your diet.

Pizza Topping Suggestions:

  • Onion
  • Red bell pepper
  • Spinach
  • grated carrot
  • mushrooms
  • tempeh sausage
  • tofu bacon
  • broccoli
  • pineapple
  • marinated eggplant
  • fresh basil
  • fresh tomatoes
  • marinated artichokes
  • asparagus
  • hummus
  • kale
As you'll notice this is not a 'pretty' pizza, it is LOADED with veggies.  I didn't really make the pizza for visual appeal I wanted to show you what a real, healthy pizza should look like.  Choose your favorite veggies, experiment with different sauces or hummus and veggies and make sure you include plenty of fresh green leafy veggies.
