Due to the frozen pizza recall last week, we've been forced to get our pizza fixes other ways. Being that most frozen pizzas are not healthy, the silver lining was that this was a good opportunity for all of us to rid our freezers of them anyway.

I found a great recipe on parenting.com for pizza bagels! I imagine it'd be something your kids could help make but it's definitely adult-friendly as well. It involves making two purees: orange, made with carrots and yams, and white, made from cannellini beans. Naturally, I'd suggest making those beforehand and sticking them in the fridge.
- Preheat oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees. Combine tomato sauce with White and Orange purees. Mix well.
- Spread 1 to 2 tablespoons of sauce on each bagel half, and then top completely with 2 tablespoons grated cheese (without covering the hole). Bake 5 to 6 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Not too bad when you compare it with Bagel Bites [200 calories, 6 g fat (2.5 saturated), 550mg sodium, 10 mg cholesterol], which don't have the added benefit of veggies!
