Green Pizza Recipe

Green Pizza Recipe

This recipe uses vegetables as an unconventional pizza topping to add a peppery flavor and is a healthy option for unhealthy pizzas with a lot of cheese, white crust and very little in the way of good vegetables. This recipe uses a limited amount of cheese, no meat and vegetables for a healthy difference you can taste. The vegetables and crust add vitamins, minerals and fiber.
