Redefine pizza party by making this vegetarian pizza recipe that is an absolute favorite recipe of mine. It’s delicious, simple to make (although it can be a little time consuming) and it makes enough to feed a larger amount of people when you are having that “pizza party”. Your guests won’t feel the typical sluggishness because this is compeltely loaded with veggies and healthy fats. Because literally every part of this recipe contains vegetables, it’s absolutely packed with healthful nutrients.
Just a few of the nutrients you’ll get from these nutrient-packed vegetables:
- Cauliflower: Sulforaphane- cancer-fighting; choline- brain healthy; anti-inflammatory properties
- Spinach: Folate- cancer fighting; Vitamins A & C- skin and eye healthy
- Onions: Flavonoids- antioxidants; manganese- superoxide dismutase antioxidant in the body
- Garlic: Allicin- cancer fighting antioxidant; flavonoids
- Avocado: Monounsaturated fats- anti-inflammatory, heart healthy; vitamin B3- nerve health and energy for the body
- Tomatoes: Lycopene and beta-carotene- antioxidants; Vitamins A & C- skin and eye health
