My Little People LOVED Today's Hidden Super Food!!

And who wouldn't.  Pizza!!  I played around with the sauce.  Into the Vitamix went 2 cups of baby spinach, a half of a carrot, and 3/4 of a can of Muir Glen Organic Pizza Sauce.   This momma was working so fast so little eyes didn't see the concoction!

After a few minutes in the blender, I had an army green sauce that looked less than appetizing.  My husband wondered just how much spinach I put into the sauce.  He his next statement was, "I wouldn't eat anything that color!"

I was a bit nervous but thought I could remedy the problem.  I put the sauce on the pizza, then added more red sauce on top.

Next I added the cheese, leaving a bit of room for 3 of 3's rice cheese.  Popped it into the oven and in 15 minutes the kids had a healthier version of their favorite pizza.

The final product.  The pizza looks great with the exception of 3 of 3's rice cheese.

Like I said, it was a hit.  In fact, the same daddy that said he wouldn't eat it said, "I hope they don't like it and I can eat it for lunch!"  Unfortunately for him, all the little people loved it.  And I feel emboldened to add more ingredients next time!!!


  1. I just laughed out loud at the "I wouldn't eat anything that color" comment. The pizza looks awesome!

  2. Carly, the pizza was surprisingly good. One wouldn't even have know there was spinach in the sauce if it weren't for the pictures. I asked 1 of 3 if it was the best pizza I have ever made and she said, "It is really good, but it's missing chicken!"

  3. too cute! I never knew they made rice cheese lol, who knew! I'll have to mention that to my sister who is lactose intolerant or "reluctant" as she says.

  4. Eschelle, I will say that I found the rice cheese to be terrible. The baby doesn't seem to mind it so he still gets it! I guess it would be worth a try anyway! Have a good one!
