Food Friday: Homemade Pizza – Face & Fitness

Food Friday: Homemade Pizza

By Kennedi Rose / November 4, 2011

One of my favorite ways to eat healthy, cheap and delicious food is to make a pizza. “Pizza” has a bad reputation for being unhealthy because people think it has to be mostly bread and cheese. But a thin-crust, lite-on-the-cheese veggie pizza is cheap, delicious and healthy!

My recipe for cheap/healthy/delicious pizza is as follows:

Whole Wheat Pizza Dough — $1.09 cents at Trader Joes. Used to be 99 cents! You can also make it homemade, but buying the dough is WAY faster.

Tomato Sauce — from a jar! Use your fave variety. $2 – $4 for most types.

Cover with your favorite veggies (buy in-season for a lower price):

  • tomato slices
  • red onions
  • artichoke
  • Brussels sprouts
  • baby spinach
  • corn
  • bell peppers
  • zucchini
  • mushroom (okay, mushroom isn’t technically a veggie, but you get my point …)


Optional Meat: Lightly pan-fry some shredded chicken until its throughly cooked, then add it to the pizza.

Optional Cheese: I like to use tiny amounts of high-quality gourmet cheese. Fresh mozzarella and grate-it-yourself parmesan are the classic pizza staples, but you can also try feta cheese (great on a pizza with cherry tomatoes, red onions and black olives) or brie (great on a pizza with bacon).
