My Pizza IS a Vegetable
I was musing on this as I made pizza for supper the other night. School pizza is made of white flour crust, tomato paste and corn syrup, and cheese. No flavor, no whole grains, just some high-sodium tomato paste and cheese product mozzarella.
Homemade pizzas are different.
Exhibit A: 100% whole wheat crust, homemade pizza sauce thickened by hours of simmering, not tomato paste, mozzarella, Parmesan, green olives, mushrooms, and onions
Exhibit B: same healthy crust, sauce and cheese, just with lots of spinach, blue cheese, and garlic
