Broccoli Goat Cheese Pizza

For the longest time this Russian mom’s dictionary listed “healthy pizza” as an example of the word “oxymoron”. Well, the assumption flopped  when I found Christina at De La Casa, who redirected me to The Healthy Foodie, who shared this amazing whole wheat pizza dough recipe. 

The bad news – this crust is pretty time-consuming.  The great news – it could be made ahead and refrigerated or frozen for future use!

Healthy pizza!

I was busy with this pizza when my son called: “Mama, pitcher, pitcher”.  When I grabbed my camera and walked into the living room, where the duo was playing, they were already striking a pose… for the pitcher… pitcher…

Hence, along with the pizza photos, you got to bear my little but very chic models as well…

    Looks deeelish. If you want a quicker dough recipe, I posted a whole wheat and flax dough recipe on my blog. Using quick-rise yeast, it’s ready in 20 minutes!

    I feel such an underachiever…I cannot cook but since my teen years I would look at recipes and cook a feast in my mind.
    Love pizza and your photos look really great.

      Well, the best case scenario – they would try a crust… My kids wouldn’t eat pizza even if it looked absolutely unhealthy :-( The only way we can make them it vegetables, is in a smoothie form…

    Broccoli deserves more respect as a pizza topping. I just had some perfectly steamed last evening and it was so good. Love the goat cheese and garlic…and of course, the whole wheat base. Pizza can be healthy…you just have to commit to making it so!

    I was oohing and aahing over the pizza until I got to the real glamour shots – your adorable kids! It’s nice to know they’ll grow up eating good stuff like this.
