First, just by making it at home, it's already healthier! That was easy :-) But I went a step further. I got a set of microplaners for Christmas (like a grater, but more fine and much faster). I'm not a big fan of green peppers and onions, which are traditional pizza veggies, so I tried...carrots. Read on! After I put on the sauce, I shredded a handful of baby carrots over the entire pizza, and put a lot over a section for the little gal. The orange color blends in with the sauce nicely and will be covered by the cheese, which eliminates the popular kid question, "what's this green stuff?". I added the cheese and pepperoni, and off it went to the oven.
The verdict? The little gal scarfed it down, so that's a thumbs up from her. The hubby and I liked it too. The carrots are barely noticble, but they add a little bit of flavor. Success! We will definitely be doing this again. Maybe next time I'll grate some...broccoli? Who knows. The possibilities are endless.
