Garden Variety Pizza: Peas and Cheese
There are so many ways pizza can be a healthy part of your kids diet! Vegetables can either be added under the cheese, or right on top. Mini pizza's with a variety of vegetables can be a super quick lunch or dinner meal. Kids can assemble the veggies on their own pizzas, and to their liking. The one we made for this lunch was peas and cheese!
- Homemade pizza crust (it took less than an hour. Super easy)
- Tomato paste with herbs and spices (I have a pizza spice jar)
- fresh tomato
- Baby spinach leaves.
The key for picky eaters, is to not pile many veggies on at once. It's too overwhelming, even for me. Just start with peas and cheese, and you can add more vegetables from there. The key is to get them on there!
As you'll notice with the baby spinach, there is barely any on the pizza. Not even enough to give them any detectable nutrients. But the point is to get them used to having the vegetables on their plate, whether it's a tiny amount, or a lot, to be consistent.
Other vegetable combinations we like:
- artichoke, tomatoes, and white beans
- Broccoli slaw (just that)
- Salsa, lettuce, tomato and olives (Taco Pizza)
Do your kids have a favorite vegetable topping on their pizza?
