Healthier Pizza

Ingredients

  1. 4 slices of gluten free bread (or 2 gluten free pizza crusts, or 4 slices of organic whole wheat pita bread)
    13 oz of tomato sauce (I use half a jar of organic pasta sauce)
    1 cup of partly-skimmed mozzarella cheese
    1 cup of diced tomatoes
    1 cup of diced red and green peppers
    1/2 cup of diced mushrooms
    1 cup of fresh spinach leaves
    1/2 cup of chopped red onions
    1/2 cup of jalapeños for some additional kick (optional)
    3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
    1 teaspoon of salt
    2 teaspoons of pepper
  1. Optional additional toppings include: broccoli, artichokes, olives, eggplant, and basil

Directions

Serving size: 1-2 people

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Chop and dice all of the listed vegetables.
  3. Put the diced tomatoes in a separate bowl and add your olive oil and salt and pepper. Mix well and let the olive oil marinate into the tomatoes.
  4. Place your bread or pizza crusts on a cookie sheet and put into the oven. Let bread bake for 5-10 minutes, flipping the bread after the five-minute mark. This helps to make it crispy.
  5. Pull out our bread from the oven and cover each slice with tomato sauce.
  6. Add your cheese and then proceed with the toppings including peppers, the marinated tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, spinach leaves and jalapeños.
  7. Put cookie sheet back in oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  8. Allow pizzas to cool for 5 minutes before enjoying.
