EatingWell's Pepperoni Pizza

August/September 2006, EatingWell for a Healthy Heart Cookbook (2008)

Pepperoni pizza gets a healthful makeover with whole-wheat pizza dough and a flavorful tomato sauce that, thanks to the addition of pumpkin puree, provides extra beta carotene and fiber.

I made this pizza. I thought it was great. I used 1 cup of low sodium pizza sauce and 1/2 cup of pumpkin, based on the reviews that it had gotten previously. It worked out great. Of course 1-1/2 cups of sauce is way more than you need for this one pizza. I would probably cover 3 pizzas with that much sauce. Also, I used 2 cups of cheese (I know the cheese isn't very good for you, but I did use skim mozzarella). The turkey pepperoni was great also.

After reading all the comments, I did change the recipe a bit. I only used 1/4 cup of pumpkin puree and 1 cup of tomato sauce. It turned out great! I couldn't really taste the pumpkin, but it gave the sauce a great thickness. I would make this again with the changes.

Just to be clear, sodium NITRATE is largely considered safe and healthy in food (its found in most leafy veggies) where as sodium NITRITE is used for curring meats and is in question for causing cancer.

There is sodium nitrate in most turkey pepperoni. Eating well doesn't consist of a diet of sodium nitrate.
