Fresh Ingredients Make A Healthy Spring Pizza
Pizza's always a great way to start the weekend. But instead of the same old pepperoni and sausage, why not lighten it up a little with some fresh arugula, garlic and green onions?
Over the past few months I've done quite a few pizza recipes. Part of the reason I've done so many is that not only is it a guaranteed hit with my toddler, it's a great (and easy) way to start the weekend. While my son does prefer his pizza with just cheese on top, he's willing, on occasion, to try things that are out of the box. So since it's spring, the weather has warmed up substantially and there are a lot of nice fresh vegetables and greens coming to our local farmers market, I thought I'd follow Food & Wine magazine's advice and try a meatless pizza. I made the pizza even lighter by using a garlic cream as my base instead of the standard Alfredo or tomato sauces, though I'm sure either of those choices would've have been delicious as well.
