Many people think that it is necessary to eat plain, boring food in order to stay healthy, but being healthy does not mean we need to *cut out* the foods we love! Eating clean is all about spicing it up + making healthy versions of our favorite meals! ++ let’s be real, what college student doesn’t love pizza!? Whether its a late night indulgence, or an on the go breakfast — pizza is delicious. So if you’re looking for a way to eat pizza without the *indulgence factor*, give this recipe a try — it’s the perfect combination of autumn veggies!
1 lb Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
2 cups Kale
1 cup Ricotta Cheese
¼ cup Onion [sliced]
¾ cup diced Butternut Squash
1/2 cup Pomegranate Seeds
¼ cup Balsamic Vinegar
1 tbsp Brown Sugar
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tbsp Whole Wheat Flour
1] Preheat the oven to 350°F. Sprinkle the whole wheat flour on the cutting board + on top of the dough. Flatten the dough gently with fingertips until thin + circular [try to avoid thin spots]
2] Place the dough onto a pizza tray [or cookie sheet] + make sure there is enough flour underneath so that it does not stick. Drizzle the olive oil onto the dough + top with kale ++ ricotta.
3] In a medium skillet, add Butternut Squash, Onions, Balsamic Vinegar, and Brown sugar. Cook on medium heat until the onions + squash soften. Once softened, add to the top of the pizza.
4] Bake for about 20 minutes until the crust is crispy + cheese begins to brown. Take the pizza out of the oven + you’re ready to cut + serve!
PIN + SAVE FOR LATER!
