Healthy Eating Tip: Add Veggies to Plain Pizza

For a quick meal, I like to keep a frozen cheese pizza in the freezer, one made with whole-wheat crust — I like Kashi and Newman's Own the best. It's a little boring as it is, and doesn't contain much fiber or vitamins, so I like to make it a little healthier by adding my own veggies. I chop up some mushrooms, spinach, peppers, carrots, zucchini, broccoli, or whatever I have in the fridge. I sauté them with fresh herbs, garlic, and olive oil, spread them on top of the pizza and bake it as usual. Not only is it more flavorful and full of interesting texture, but it's also more filling, so I end up eating fewer slices.

Such a simple idea but sounds delicious. Can't believe I never thought of it!

I love doing this. My favorite is mushroom, black olives and artichokes. So very good!

Pizza gets such a bad rap. Of course, a greasy sausage domino's pizza isn't a health food.I sometimes buy whole wheat pizza dough from trader joe's, spread it thin, sprinkle on some cheese and sometimes some soy meat, a ton of veggies (including tomatoes to replace the sauce), sprinkle some oregano and red pepper.It's well-balanced and healthy and delicious!

I do this, usually with mushrooms, bell peppers, and fresh herbs.

We always get a light crust frozen pizza and add veggies or chopped chicken or something. YUMMY!

I love frozen pizza. Eat it at least once a week. I never thought to add my own toppings, but I always have a bag of spinach that's about to be past its prime. Thanks, fit!

I make my own whole grain pizza crusts regularly. It's pretty easy, healthy, and so much more satisfying than the frozen ones.

I don't know if has anything to do with the fact that it is almost lunch time, but that looks really good right now.
