Do you ever think of pizza as healthy? Most of us nutrition experts don’t; however, this pizza puts a whole new spin on a healthy dish. This pizza is both vegetable-based, and loaded with healthy fats and fiber. This dish is also extremely versatile as you can add any vegetables and nutrient-packed spices while making it.
The turmeric, added before the dough is cooked, adds extra cancer-fighting benefits as turmeric acts as a major antioxidant in our bodies when heated. In addition, the healthy fat in both the avocado and in the flaxseed also adds anti-inflammatory properties. Lastly, the cauliflower-based crust is loaded with anthoxanthins, found in white-colored produce, which may also contain anti-inflammatory properties and act as an antioxidant.
Enjoy this pizza as a delicious part of any meal and don’t forget to load on the vegetables!
