Go Green…Pizza!

Delicious toppings include green olives, artichoke hearts and pesto.

Green Pizza was an inspiration born from the spinach pizza. If you’re going to go green, why not go green all the way? I name this Green Pizza and while it sounds like Greenpeace, I use eggs and cheese and I’m not sure the vegan contingency would appreciate that (vegans, you can use flax seed meal in place of the egg and soy cheese in place of the mozzarella).

This pizza is gorgeous, flavorful and a lot of fun to make. Add a touch of sun-dried tomato for some extra kick.

This recipe is gluten free, induction friendly (stick to a slice since you’re limited on cheese) and at only 3.5 net carbs per slice… delicious without guilt!

  1. This looks fantastic and delicious! Happy New Year! I was excited to see this post from you!

  2. I LOVE basil so I would substitute basil for the spinach and get more nutrition as well as a different taste. Great idea.
