Healthy Pizza & Tea Pairing

Firstly, what is a healthy Pizza?

Well, sadly you need to lose the copious amounts of creamy cheese, the white crust, greasy toppings, and creamy sauces. I know it sounds like we’ve stripped away all the joys of Pizza, but hopefully I can convince you otherwise. Replace all those mentioned ingredients above with tasty vegetables, healthier cheeses (like feta), a whole wheat crust, and make your own rustic sauce. Trust me; it’s delicious and guilt-free! To make this project even more fun, we paired our healthy pizza with three of our teas: Deluxe Iced Tea, Decaf Organic Green Tea, and Black Silk (Chinese Black Snail tea). The Deluxe Iced Tea won by miles! It was a delightful combination, and left us excited to know that spring is around the corner, and we could enjoy this combo again, very soon. Want to try it for yourself? Order 2oz of Deluxe Iced Tea for only $3.95 http://www.elementtea.com/iced/deluxe-iced-tea.html and read on for our healthy pizza recipe:

Ingredients: 1 whole wheat crust, 1 chopped red onion, 1 large tomato, 100% pure tomato sauce (small can), 2 cloves of garlic; 1 minced, 1 chopped, ½ carton of mushrooms, 1 green and 1 yellow pepper, fresh spinach, crumbled feta cheese (8oz), a sprinkling of grated parmesan cheese, oregano herbs, paprika spices, salt and pepper .

Instructions: Prepare the base sauce. In a blender, add half the onion, 1 clove of minced garlic, whole can of tomato sauce, ½ teaspoon pepper, and a pinch of salt,  a splash of water, a pinch of paprika, and lastly, a tablespoon of fresh oregano, otherwise a pinch of condensed oregano. Once blended, add the base sauce to the crust. Now you are ready to add all the toppings in this order; fresh spinach, remaining onion, chopped garlic clove, peppers, mushrooms, feta cheese, and then a sprinkle of grated parmesan. Now bake the pizza in the oven on 375f for 8-10 minutes, or until crust has browned. Cut and enjoy!
