whole wheat bun pizza
I created this really quick and easy recipe mainly for my kids. We all love pizza, but making one from scratch is time consuming, and buying a commercial one is usually incredibly unhealthy. This is a great solution. The key is finding a whole wheat hamburger bun, or even a whole grain english muffin. Both work great. Just toast the bun, then load it up with sauce, cheese and healthy toppings!
Whole wheat hamburger buns or
whole grain english muffins
Bottle of your favorite spaghetti sauce
Mozzerella Cheese (and or other italian cheeses)
Olives, Pineapple Tid Bits, Green Pepper, Onions, Red Pepper, Zuchinni, Mushrooms (any of your favorite toppings)
1. Lightly toast bun or english muffin
2. Mix together tomato sauce with seasonings and paste to make a rich flavorful sauce
3. Place bun or muffin on baking tray. Layer with a generous amount of sauce. Add plenty of cheese and toppings
4. Bake at 400 till cheese is melted and lightly browned
NOTE: The key to making this tasty is to jazz up the sauce. I buy a bottle of quality spaggetti sauce, then add garlic, italian seasonings and a bit of parmesan cheese. You can also thicken it with tomato paste, which makes for a richer sauce. I really push the sauce on the flavor side, as it is what makes this simple recipe a winner.
