I had about 5 minutes to pull together dinner after a busy day out of the house and the entire family ended up loving this very simple and healthy pizza dinner. This is for all of the working parents out there!
Simply grab some brown rice tortillas (or whole wheat if you are good with gluten) and fold them in half to make a thicker base for the crust. No forks needed for this thin crust version. And, what better way to get away from the typical refined gluten-free pizza crusts out there. Spread whatever sauce you prefer generously on the crust. We love pesto sauce but the kids prefer tomato based pasta sauce. Top with a protein of some sort. The guys like leftover chicken (chopped) on their pizza, whereas, the vegetarian in the house likes chick peas. Chop up whatever veggies you have in the fridge but try to get a good mix of bright colours to maximize your antioxidants. Try chopped onion, peppers (mix up red, orange and green if you have them on hand), broccoli, zucchini, tomatoes, and/or mushrooms. If you want to take this meal into the next level to ‘ultra healthy’ – add some sprouts and/or green leafy veg on top. (spinach works well) Top with rice cheese or goat cheese if you can digest dairy. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 400 for 10 minutes for a nice crispy crust. This meal takes 15 minutes to whip together. If you happen to be super organized and already had your veggies washed and cut in the fridge from the weekend (not me) you can pull this together in less time. Have this with some raw, fresh veggies and hummus and you have a nice weekday meal that the entire family will love. ‘So long’ Pizza Pizza!
