Pizza!

Pizza is one of my favorite meals! Often times pizza companies add on extra calories that we don't need. Homemade pizza gives us control of what we put on our pizza. Today i'm going to share with you a healthy homemade pizza! If you make your pizza right you can get all the five food groups. First I made my dough from a whole wheat recipe... 2 Cups of Whole Wheat Flour, 1 1/2 tbs yeast, 1 tsp salt, 1 1/2 tsp sugar, 3/4 cup water, 1 tsp canola oil (optional).  I have chosen red sauce made out of 1 can of tomato sauce with 1 tsp oregano and 1 tsp basil. Next I added a little sausage and cheese for flavor (keep in mind this is where you want to keep to a minimum because of unwanted calories).


Next cut up the vegetables. I have chosen zucchini, green peppers and olives. Use lots of vegetables, its great way to create volume to your meal without extra calories.


By sauteing your vegetable in 1 tsp olive oil and 1 tsp minced garlic will soften and add flavor to the vegetables. 



Add sauteed vegetables to the pizza. 




So far on our pizza we have a grain=whole-wheat dough, protein=sausage, dairy=cheese, vegetables=zucchini, green pepper and olives. What are we missing? Fruit! Take a slice or two of pizza and eat it with a fruit of your choice. Tonight i have chosen a nectarine. I hope you enjoy this pizza. Please comment below with any questions!
