Food for Fuel: Piles of Veggies Pizza

December 31, 2008 at 10:08 am | Posted in Food, Nutrition, Pizza, Poultry | 3 Comments

Maybe one day I’ll make a less-is-more type of pizza, with just a few good quality ingredients each given an individual chance to shine on one pie. Last night, however, was not my time. In typical Jess-fashion, I piled everything in my refrigerator onto my last ball of pizza dough (1/3 of this recipe, frozen and then thawed). I started with a very thin smear of my favorite jarred sauce, Central Market Organics Pasta Primavera, and topped it with the following:

  • Baby spinach
  • Basil
  • Pre-cooked grilled chicken strips (I buy Hormel, which is nice and natural and does not taste like weird packaged chicken) 
  • Artichoke hearts
  • Mushrooms
  • Roma tomatoes
  • Asparagus
  • Garlic
  • Cheese (bagged 2% milk Italian blend, fat-free mozzarella, parmesan)
  • A sprinkle of red wine vinegar

I baked it at 400* for about 20 minutes. 


Too many ingredients for each to shine individually, but this was delicious. And, how often do you get a bunch of asparagus spears poking off your crust?
