Meatless Monday: Greek Garden Pizza

January 3, 2011

Neapolitan. Pizzetta. Rustica. Sicilian. Pissaladiere. The variations of pizza types are endless. A versatile and filling meal, snack or appetizer, pizza has been a popular food in the U.S. since soldiers returned from Italy after WWII. What was once only found in small enclaves of major U.S. cities can now be delivered directly to your door, sometimes at any time of day or night. Pizza can be a very healthy dish, it just depends on the ingredients you choose. For your next pizza night, give the delivery driver a break and try one of these healthy recipes yourself. There’s no limit to what your imagination can add! Recipe adapted from Food Match.
