Most Americans admit that they don't eat nearly enough vegetables. This is especially true for children. As parents know, some kids love them while others hate them. In an attempt to feed my family healthy and budget-friendly meals, I scoured the refrigerator looking for ideas. Craving pizza, but not having the right ingredients, I decided to get creative and came up with this cabbage and onion pizza recipe.
- 1 pizza crust or make your own (I use this homemade pizza crust recipe)
- 1/2 cup pizza sauce or create it yourself
- 1/2 grated mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 red onion, diced
- 1/2 green cabbage, diced
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Put parchment paper on a pizza pan or cookie sheet. If you don't have parchment, then aluminum foil will do.
- Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce on the crust. You want it thin, but you don't want to miss spots either.
- Place mozzarella cheese all over the crust.
- Put the diced onions on the pizza.
- Add the green cabbage on top.
- Bake for 20 minutes.
I wasn't sure how this homemade pizza recipe would come out, but both my picky husband and kids loved it! My husband hates onions with a passion, so I put those on the bottom and covered them up with the cabbage and more mozzarella cheese on top. He didn't know the difference and thought it was delicious.
To make your own pizza recipe, you can get creative. Just look in your cupboards, refrigerator and freezer for things to add. Radishes, zucchini, spinach and broccoli are great additions to any pizza dish. Hiding some veggies in pizza underneath pepperoni or ham would also be a great way for your kids to get their veggies without them knowing it.
