Pizza post

I wanted to take photos of my food for a long time. Now I can. In part I just like to look at photos of food (so much the better if I might actually get to have it), but also pictures remind me of what I cook and inspire me to make dishes again in a way written recipes alone do not. Healthy, delicious pizza is a staple very week. I make the crusts from whole wheat and white flour combined with a small amount of canola oil. The whole wheat makes it healthier and more filling. I always add a drizzle of olive oil on top. The toppings shown are meatless since I’m a mostly-vegetarian (I don’t miss it on my pizzas at all). Here’s a few samples.

Crushed tomatoes, mozzarella, grated Parmesan/Romano, olive oil and fresh oregano.

      They ARE fantastic! You could use meat toppings – what makes these healthier than traditional is I don’t pile on cheese, sugary/salty sauce and a lot of oil. I guess I forgot to say that!
