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

Yummo! I would happily eat my veggies at your house!
Mmmm. Those look good!!!
Sad to say, there's just no worthy substitute for home cooking...many have tried, none have succeeded ; )
Homemade pizza is the best. I don't even want take-out any more. And yes, I heard about that ruling. My sister (who has school aged children) told me about it in outrage. Crazy, crazy stuff. But, yes, pizza COULD be a vegetable...if done right! As in with real vegetables!
Also, I love the children waiting patiently (or does it only look patient?) while you snap photos. I do that to Matt all the time.
Gee, and aren't we glad that Congress spent how many hours/days/weeks debating this important piece of legislature instead of taking care of REAL issues facing our country?
Yes, I heard about that ruling. So ridiculous.
YOUR pizzas look ridiculously GOOD.
I'll be right over for the green olive etc. pizza.
I couldn't agree more! The ketchup ruling isn't much different than the pickle that counts as a vegetable every so often or the baked beans from a can that are loaded with hfcs. Oh and don't get me started on what counts as fruit!
BLD, they were patient (which is not always the case!). I also take meal photos at lightning speed, so it's never long.
2 tablespoons of tomato paste?!?! That'd be funny if it wasn't so sad. I read this to Chris and he pointed out this means we could eat a plate of spaghetti and be good for a week of vegetables.
These pizzas look delicious! I especially like the look of the one loaded with spinach!
