White Pizza WIAW!

Standard

Happy Hump Day, my friends! In the food blogger world, perhaps it’s more accurate to say Happy WIAW Day? Yes, we’ll go with that!

My What I Ate Wednesday came from last Thursday. Let’s get to it!

WIAW 5.1 total

Breakfast: Banana egg pancake topped with almond butter, flax, and unsweetened shredded coconut

Morning snack: Orange

Lunch: A delicious mess of a salad! Romaine, spinach, red onion, carrots, broccoli, deli turkey, and pickle topped with balsamic vinaigrette dressing with Trader Joe’s quinoa lentil chips on the side!

Afternoon snack: Chobani Bite Coffee mixed with plain 0% CHO, puffed wheat, and oats

And, then came dinner! After a trip to Trader Joe’s, I had a whole wheat pizza dough I couldn’t wait to use. I had this idea of a white pizza and balsamic glaze, so I threw this together. It was definitely a winner!

Balsamic white pizza

 

Balsamic glazed white pizza
Serves 4 

  • One whole wheat pizza dough (I used Trader Joe’s pre-made.) 
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 1 large roma tomato, thinly sliced
  • 1 c. mozzarella cheese
  • Parmesan cheese (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. basil
  1. Preheat oven according to what pizza dough crust you choose. 
  2. Next, mix your balsamic vinegar, olive oil, oregano, and basil, and use a brush to lightly brush top of pizza dough.
  3. Top balsamic glaze with tomato, spinach, and red onion. Top with cheese.
  4. Place in oven and bake until crust is cooked and cheese is melted. Enjoy!

How to level up this recipe:

  • Use more veggies! I would also love asparagus, yellow pepper, or mushrooms on top of this.
  • For a grilled flavor, make your pizza on the grill! (I’m sure this would be phenomenal! I’m sad we don’t have a grill.)

How to level down this recipe:

  • Leave off whatever veggies you don’t like.

Happy Wednesday!
