Health: A Healthy, Homemade Pizza

ezekiel pizza Pizza is just fun, isn't it? It's comfort food that hits the spot no matter what! Why not have it all with a healthy version? I believe that cooking at home centers you and keeps you at your healthiest, but healthy doesn't mean you have to sacrifice fun and enjoyment!

I took a private cooking class in L.A, a few years ago where she talked about having a rotating dinner menu to rely on during the week. I love that idea, and think we should all have at least 3 or 4 dinner options to rotate through and rely on! She encouraged having healthy pizza, or taco nights using the most nutritious ingredients, and why not?!

We did just that a couple weeks ago made with whatever we had on hand: ezekiel wraps, sundried tomatoes, goat cheese, grass-fed ground bison, peppers, onions, garlic and broccoli.

Simply preheat the oven to about 400 degress. Place an ezekiel wrap on a piece of foil and use a sauce (we used a sundried tomato paste, but you could use a can of tomato paste or pesto) to coat as the first layer.

In a saucepan, brown your grass fed ground bison or beef and layer that on top of the sauce.

Arrange your veggies as you'd like, using whichever variety you have on hand.

Sprinkle with salt and crumbled goat cheese on top so it melts in the oven.

Place your foil on a baking sheet and bake for about 10-15 minutes or until browned and crispy. Slice and serve your personal size pizzas! So good! So easy!

Menu Planning is essential for well being. Having meals you can turn to and a stocked kitchen you can rely on on a weekly basis keeps you grounded and rooted in self care practices. You still have wiggle room for eating out and indulging, but you can stay true to what works for you at home.
