The 'Za: A Quick and Healthy Meal
If you love pizza, you don't have to eliminate it from your eating plan. Great news: Pizza can contain whole grains and vegetables and can be nearly effortless to prepare.
Try some of these ingredients for a tasty creation:
- 1 pre-cooked store-bought crust (100-percent whole grain, if available)
- Your favorite spaghetti sauce or whole, sliced tomatoes
- Your favorite vegetables cut into bite-sized pieces. Great suggestions include: red peppers, onions, broccoli, spinach, butternut squash or mushrooms.
- Shredded, low-fat cheese such as part-skim mozzarella, cheddar, feta or parmesan.
Preheat the oven to 450°F and place your pizza directly on the rack or onto a flat cookie sheet. Spread the sauce or tomatoes evenly across the pizza crust, followed by the vegetables and cheese. Sprinkle your favorite herbs or spices. Cook according to the crust directions and serve. Add a fresh side salad to complete your meal.
