When I ask my kids what they want to eat for dinner, the answer
is usually pizza. (I am not sure why I even bother asking them what
they want for dinner.) In any event, tonight we created a healthy
and delicious seasonal pizza that required minimal preparation.
My kids were very excited for the pizza. My daughter helped
brush the olive oil and the sauce on the pizza crust. My son helped
shred the Parmesan cheese and sprinkle it onto the pizza. The
vibrant orange and green colors were a pleasant change from the
white and red pizza we always eat.
The flavors of this pizza are light and delicious yet hearty
enough to warm us up with all this snow!
