Description

One of my favorite foods is Pizza. Pizza dough has so many calories that I wanted to experiment with vegetables to make an alternative Pizza crust with less calories that was healthy and delicious. I used two of my favorite vegetables - cauliflower and broccoli, added both vegetables to the food processor with some spices and cheese. I shaped, baked and added mozzarella cheese, marinara sauce and fresh herbs to my pizza crust and WALA a delicious and healthy substitute for pizza dough.

Why is healthy cooking important to you?  Healthy cooking is very important to me because it is the foundation of good health and keeps the doctor away. It also provides the nutrients to help me continue to grow big and strong. Healthy cooking gives me energy and makes my brain work in school everyday. Its not always easy cooking and eating healthy but I do it to protect my Temple (body) from getting sick and to help me live a long fun life. You only get one Temple so feed it well and treat it nice.
