Green Pizza

Why not use cooler-weather vegetables like broccoli and arugula as an unconventional pizza topping? The arugula adds a slightly bitter, peppery taste—for a milder flavor, use spinach instead. Serve with wedges of fresh tomato tossed with vinegar, olive oil, basil and freshly ground pepper.

"I love this Green Pizza, especially with homemade thin whole wheat pizza crust! I make the dough in my food processor the night before. I add other green veggies, like peas, spinach, and artichokes and I like to add goat cheese or feta...

Very Cheap, Very Easy, Very good!

I love this recipes it came out awesome! It was super easy to make, and very yummy. I was afraid it maybe a little bland but it wasn't, the pesto really added a lot of flavor, and I scaled back the recipe since no one else in my household wanted to try it. It's a very easy meal to make if you are trying to accomidate people who don't want a green pizza, you can simply put your stuff on one side and they can put more trditional toppings on the other, and everyone wins. Next time if I have leftovers from the previous day I may add some chicken too it.

A good way to get veggies
Sorry this pic looks to crappy, but it came out really good.
Tasty veggie pizza

I think 3.5 stars seems more appropriate, but they don't allow half star ratings. I think this is a solid recipe. It was easy to make. I added some goat cheese, but think even just using more mozzarella like the recipe required would be better. The suggestion for the tomato salad accompanied it nicely. I would definitely make this again.

Husband loved it!!

Husband is hard to please so the fact that he liked this says everything.

Easy to make, and tasted good

I made this last night and it was a hit. Even the kids loved it. I used about half the recommended amount of the pesto (because it is very high in fat and calories) and it still turned out great! A little pesto goes a long way. I used a mixture of spinach and arugula instead of all arugula. I also used reduced fat crescent rolls for the crust because I had them on hand.

Great way to get your veggies!
My boyfriend hugged me for this one and he doesn't even like veggies!

The first time I tried this, my boyfriend grabbed me afterward and looked me in the eyes and told me that it "was some of the best food [he's] ever tasted..." and then hugged me. He doesn't even usually eat veggies.

I added feta, turkey kielbasa sausage, and mushrooms to the pizza. This recipe is definitely a new staple in our household. I guess the downside is that the pizza was so good, we caught each other sneaking to the kitchen in the night to eat the leftovers!

Easy; Healthy; Delicious

I assume that you bought pizza crust dough, but making it at home is easy and inexpensive. Check this website for recipes. Use leftover dough to make breadsticks!
