Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 recipe for Whole Wheat Crust from Sally's Baking Addiction

Pizza Sauce

  • 2 carrots peeled and chopped
  • 2 sweet mini peppers chopped
  • 1 cup broccoli florets chopped small
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 1 Tbs minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 tsp mushroom bullion
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 to matoes chopped
  • 1 can tomato sauce 8 ounces
  • 1/2 cup red kidney beans rinsed and drained
  • 3/4 cup favorite spaghetti sauce or extra tomatoes this helps it get that red color kids expect
  • 1 tsp oregano dry
  • 1 tsp parsley dry

Toppings

  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • Toppings of choice: Ham pineapple, mushrooms, peppers, pepperoni, etc.

Instructions

  • Make pizza dough according to directions. or use premade crust of choice
  • Chop up all your veggies really small. (If your kids are suspicious, leave the peppers out, they have the strongest flavor)
  • Put water, bullion, and all veggies in a pot, and bring to a boil, then turn down to a medium heat and cook until veggies are almost mush. Takes about 15 minutes
  • Put everything, broth included (that is where the nutrients are), into a blender.
  • Blend until smooth
  • Add in beans, tomato sauce, seasonings, and spaghetti sauce, and blend until smooth
  • Put in a Pizza Sauce Jar to trick your kids!
  • Top pizza crust with 1 cup of sauce
  • Top with cheese and favorite pizza toppings. I like to add a thin layer of cheese, the toppings, and then more cheese. This helps it stick together, and results in needing a slightly longer time to get the cheese melty, which gives the crust a chance to bake up perfectly.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 475 for 15-17 minutes
  • Serve hot
