Potato who??

Remember  when I talking about this pizza challenge that would be fun, but I needed more healthy pizza recipes. Check out what appeared in my inbox today from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Pizza Recipes

How cool! I love it even more that it came from women’s Health Mag.com. I love Women’s Health Magazine. It is always my go to when I want some mindless reading. They have such fun recipes and health tips. The first recipes looks soo yummy, pear and ricotta.

I found a fun pizza recipe while browsing through the whole foods website. The crust was a potato!  How creative!

Pizza potatoes

  • 2 russet potatoes
  • 2 t olive oil
  • Marinara sauce
  • 1 cup of mozz cheese
  • Veggies (I used my CSA cremini mushrooms)

Poke holes in the potatoes, rub with olive oil and bake at 400 degrees for 1 hour. Cut a slit in the potatoes, and open them up but still keeping them as one potato. Add vegetable,

Cover generously with tomato sauce

Cover with cheese

Then broil the potatoes on low for about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

This is pizza??

I know it’s crazy how many versions of pizza there are. Again, I looked the definition for pizza from several sources and all said a base dough topped with tomato sauce and cheese. Well I guess this counts!

I also made a quick salad on the side which consisted of greens, edamame and a olive and balsamic vinaigrette mix for the dressing. I suggest heating up a small side of marinara sauce. Once you start cutting into the potato and get into the middle of it, it will be a little bit dry. Nothing that a side of marinara sauce can’t fix!

If anyone has some pizza recipes please send them my way!

Have a good night!

It’s really hot in our apartment, the tile floor is much cooler!
