Now We’re Cookin’: Loaded Veggie Pizza

Who doesn’t like pizza? This fast-food staple is loved by everyone, from children to grandparents alike. But ordering pizza too often isn’t great – both for your waistline and your wallet. Let us present an alternative: a homemade, kid-tested pizza that is loaded with healthy veggies!

The secret begins in the homemade sauce: sauteing and simmering a can of crushed tomatoes, onion, and garlic to create a savoury base to your pizza. Roasted chickpeas are another great addition (check out our recipe for those by clicking here). Finally, load up the pizza with your favourite healthy vegetables before sticking it in the oven. Check out the recipe below:


While it takes a little bit of time to get all of the different pieces ready, we can guarantee that this pizza will be a hit for dinner or a healthy lunch! And like every other pizza, the appeal comes from personalizing what toppings to put on. Making the pizzas with your children – picking different vegetables together and putting them in the oven – is a great way to introduce them to the kitchen.
