Brussel Sprout Pizza

That’s right. It might sound scary and like a strange experiment, but this pizza is somewhat addicting. I have made pizza before with these, but I didn’t want to heat the house up roasting them since the temps here have been in the 80s. So, I cheated and bought frozen brussel sprouts, cooked them and then baked them on a pizza. So GOOD! Really, you have to try it. They satisfy your veggie craving and have the texture and fill like carbs do(like the pizza dough), sort of like potatoes.  I love brussel sprouts and I love pizza, so one day I decided to put them on a pizza, it’s become a new favorite.

Why are brussel sprouts so nutritious?

Also, today was another gorgeous day I could not miss! Today was another 5.5 mile run day at the park. Today was much easier since I’m back into running and I think my body is somewhat used to things blooming and pollen. It’s still a little difficult to breathe, but not so much as to miss out on a run in the sunshine. Again, it took only 45 minutes. It felt great, I hope you’re getting out to excercise in nice weather!!

I am a real health conscious food lover always in pursuit of real, great food! My journey began way back around 2000 when I realized it was time to grow up and eat better. Fast food was not cutting it and staples I grew up on such as burgers and spagetti were getting old. I also began trying a new diet experimenting with what I ate and how I felt as far as energy levels and keeping my skin clear. Since then it has been a rewarding journey in the kitchen trying new fruits and vegetables and tons of fantastic new recipes.

    That looks awesome! I love brussel sprouts too. They get a bad rap, but I can see how they would be great on pizza. Maybe even with a light pesto sauce or even a light tomato based sauce. Yummy!

    Ok, I admit to having reservations about this recipe until I saw your final photo – it looks really good! I’m surprised :0

    Will definitely have to try this!

  3. I, too, thought that did not sound great just by the title, but the final photo won me over! I am going to put this on the menu for the week! Thanks for more inspiration! 🙂
