Whole Wheat Veggie Pizza

I don’t know how it is Monday already. I feel like we got ripped off with this weekend, just not enough time. This week is set to be a good one though… in just three short days, Grey’s Anatomy returns! I watched the first 3 seasons over summer, the good ole days with George and Izzy ;)

So we’re four weeks into the semester and on-campus meals are starting to wear on me. I pretty much only go to the “cafeteria” with friends, more for a social thing than actual dining preferences. I would much rather eat something healthy I made for myself.

For a nice break, my roommate and I bought a Boboli Whole Wheat pizza crust, some tomato pizza sauce, reduced fat cheese, spinach, purple onion, tomato and bell pepper to make our own loaded-veggie pizza and salad!

After you chop all of the vegetables, it’s super easy to make (Just throw it in the oven at 450 for 10 minutes) and 12 times better than another buffet-style dinner of blah salad and boring sides. We had fun making the pizza and playing some cards in the empty dorm kitchen :)

Playing cards reminds me of camping : )

I know pizza doesn’t sound like the healthiest option but it can actually be a good balance of whole wheat carbs, veggies and vitamins when you minimize the cheese and cut out the extra grease and fat from chain-restaurant slices. I feel better about my diet when I’m in charge of what goes in my meals, and the more veggies the better. Next time I would definitely add some pineapple!

  1. I love making my own pizza. I am like you, I would rather cook than go out. But…and there is always a but…the social aspect of eating is ok also. Sometimes it is not what you eat, but who you eat with that make the meal. :) I totally agree that pizza can be a healthy option. Plus you know exactly what is in it if you do it yourself.

  2. MMMmmmm………….looks very good. I agree with Liz, sometimes it’s not “what” you are eating, but “whom” you eat with. It’s OK to dine “a-la-cafeteria” on occasion, but you can certainly make much more appealing dishes on your own. I think pizza & cards should be on your weekly menu!!!! Keep up the great work here!!!! LOVE IT.

  3. We made the same thing tonight, but with whole wheat dough we bought from our grocery deli. It tastes so much better then chain pizza places in my opinion with all the fresh veggies.
