This recipe is a easy as pie. The tortilla crust and reduced-fat cheese trim calories and fat, and the more vegetables you pile on, the more disease-fighting antioxidants you get. Serves 2
Vegetable oil cooking spray
1 sprouted grain or whole-grain 9-inch tortilla
1/4 cup pizza sauce (or Marinara)
1/4 cup 2 percent shredded mozzarella
16 slices meatless or turkey pepperoni (or 3 slices lean sandwich meat, cut into small pieces)
Vegetable toppings of your choice
1 cup mixed greens (optional)
Heat over to 400. Coat a cookie sheet or pizza stone with cooking spray. Spray butter spray on both sides of tortilla; place tortilla on sheet; spread with pizza sauce; sprinkle with cheese. Top with pepperoni slices and vegetable toppings. Bake until tortilla is crispy and cheese has melted, about 5 minutes. Top with mixed greens, if desired. Cut into 4 slices (or roll it up!) and enjoy.

Tip of the Day
Invite kids into the kitchen! Even the youngest children can help out in the kitchen. By including them in “grown up” activities, children under 5 can feel special and gain valuable life skills. They’ll also be more likely to try foods that they help prepare.
