And because Lynn blogged about pizza today.
And because it is one of the only ways I can get my kids to eat vegetables.
I now present to you my easy-peasy broccoli tomato pizza.
First, start with The Pioneer Woman's pizza dough. I made mine this afternoon. You can substitute whole wheat flour for all purpose if you want to. I usually do half and half, but today I used all white flour.
Spread it as thin as you can get it on a well oiled pan.
Top with sauce of your choice. Sometimes I use homemade, but this time I used Trader Joe's pizza sauce. Then add veggies of your choice. I love broccoli on pizza. The key is to chop it pretty small.
I happened to have some fresh tomatoes from our veggie delivery box that came today, so I put those on too. At one point, Moe came over and was watching me. He sampled a small piece of broccoli and ate it, so I gave him a bigger piece to eat. He took it from me and put it on the pizza.
People? Moe helped!

And bake in a hot 500 degree oven for around 8 minutes.
Let cool for a few minutes and serve to hungry children.
Note: Your toddler may decide not to eat the pizza, but prefer instead to sort her fruit.
The dough recipe makes a double batch, so wrap the other half in plastic wrap and pop in the freezer. Wedge between various frozen items from Trader Joe's.
