Who doesn’t love pizza? It’s got it all, right? Yummy, gooey, ooey goodness from tip to crunchy crust. But if you’re eating a regular old pizza—you know the kind loaded with processed meat and cheese—you’re not doing your body any favors. How about a pizza makeover with a pesto pizza recipe that includes superfood goodness from organic greens? Yes--a pizza that's actually good for you?
Yep. This pizza gets a little extra healthy help from a protein and healthy-fat-rich pesto sauce loaded with yummy pumpkin seeds and organic greens powder. You can use a single ingredient greens (like wheatgrass powder or spirulina), or you can use a combo such as our very own mustHave greens powder, which boasts a healthy and delicious blend of oat and alfalfa grass, spirulina, chlorella, and kale.
