Hi my Joyous readers!
If you follow me on twitter or have tried recipes on joyous health you've probably noticed I LOVE pizza! You might be surprised to know that pizza can be done healthfully, at the same time as being absolutely delicious. Yes, these two words can go together in the same recipe. I always find it amusing when I tell people that I eat pizza and they scrunch up their nose and say "Really? You eat pizza?". Yes I do!
Now I beg you, please do not to eat junk food pizza! Just for your information, the average take out slice of pizza has nearly 700mg of sodium and that's not because they are dumping table salt on top. That's because of all the processed ingredients such as phood-like cheese and factory farmed processed meat.
And you can bet that most pizza crusts are made with genetically modified wheat. The type of wheat and cheese most take out pizza is made with is like glue in your body. Ever wonder why you feel like crap the next day after indulging in those fast food pizzas? Seriously, they are no better than eating at a fast food burger joint. Sadly, the government is not going to protect you by banning phood-like substances from fast food joints and these restaurants are certainly not going to disclose all their dirty secrets.
If you don't make it yourself, then of course the ONLY acceptable place to eat pizza in Toronto is Pizza Libretto. ;) I'm sure there are more, but PL happens to be my fave! Plus they support many local farmers! Or if you want to eat raw vegan pizza then Rawlicious is the best -- the crust is gluten-free and made from sprouted buckwheat and flaxseed with a cashew nut cheese.
Let's get right to this recipe you see in the photo above!
By the way, this pizza recipe would go nicely with my Arugula Apple Almond Salad - yummy! EnJOY!
