So, I know I’m not the only person who loves pizza more than just about anything… so what is the best way to have my cake and eat it too? For me, it is homemade pizza!
It only takes about 10-15 minutes to make a home made pizza depending on what you like on it. For some reason, I love BBQ pizza (Papa John’s is to die for) but it really isn’t that healthy. Also, I don’t have the money to be spending on Papa John’s, PizzaHut, Domino’s or whatever else it may be.
For a basic pepperoni pizza the only ingredients needed are:
- Whole wheat pre-made pizza crust (I get it from HEB next to the pasta sauce, they are about $2.50 for a pack of 3)
- Pasta sauce
- Turkey pepperoni
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees, build your pizza, and bake for about 7 minutes and you’re done. Obviously, you can add as many ingredients as you would like but by making it yourself, rather than ordering a pizza or buying a frozen pizza, you can make healthier choices.
By using whole wheat crust, you are cutting down on a lot of calories, most pizza places put a ton of cheese on the pizza which isn’t totally necessary, and turkey pepperoni is healthier than regular pepperoni. By making these few substitutions, you can have a healthier option of one of your favorite meals. The best part is that all together, you can make 3 pizza’s for about $6.00!
Something I have been wanting to try is making my own cauliflower crust, I heard it is delicious! Here is a recipe that I found that I am planning on trying this weekend. Hope you enjoy 🙂
