Pizza has long been a go-to for dinner, and it also makes for a quick lunch or an easy party food. While pizza is already pretty delicious with classic toppings like cheese and pepperoni, you can also opt for toppings like onions, mushrooms, onions and even pineapple. However, there are some new and exciting ways to make your favorite dinner that will bring back childhood memories and even help you get another serving of vegetables in.
French Fries Pizza
If you’re in the mood to indulge, you can combine your two favorite “cheat day” foods and make a French Fries pizza. Simply cut up potatoes and roast them with olive oil, salt, pepper and fresh herbs. Add these to your favorite frozen organic pizza after the potatoes have cooked for a few minutes, then bake the pizza and fries together for a salty, savory treat. You can even top it with parmesan and more herbs to make the entree even tastier.
Green Goddess Pizza
The Green Goddess Pizza is a great way to enjoy pizza while getting a serving or two of vegetables. Instead of traditional red sauce, you can make a pesto for this pizza with pine nuts, spinach, olive oil and fresh herbs. Top the pizza with your favorite greens like arugula and kale, and finish it off with quality olive oil, black pepper and lemon juice for a pizza you won’t feel guilty about eating.
If you’re a fan of mushrooms, this pizza is for you. Combine all your favorite mushrooms like button, portabello and oyster mushrooms for a pizza that is rich in selenium and vitamin A. Add your favorite artisan cheeses and a light white or red sauce and dinner is served.
