Quick Pizza Recipe

I call this one the Greek Goddess!



Very simple and very healthy and delicious!

One pizza crust unbaked- we use Gluten Free Kneads pizza crust (local austin brand)
1 small can of organic tomato paste
10oz. basil and oregano diced tomatoes (drained)
2-3 sliced Spinach and Feta chicken sausage links (see picture above). You can buy them at bulk in Costco.
1 cup sliced zucchini
Greek Seasoning (Cavendar's makes a good brand)

1/2 cup to 1 cup Parmesan Cheese- shredded (we use the goat cheese kinds from HEB because its lower lactose).

Directions:
First pre-bake pizza crust as directed (usually 5-7 minutes on 475). Then let it cool a little. Spread some olive oil, tomato paste and oregano seasoning on base. Then add zucchini. Make sure you steam the zucchini half way so its not raw before you bake it on your pizza. Then add the seasoned diced tomatoes and sliced chicken sausage. Add half the amount of cheese. Bake for 7 minutes on 475 then take out of over and add rest of desired cheese. Put back in oven and broil on 500 or 510 for another 3-4 minutes or until crust and cheese are golden and browned. Cool and Enjoy!
We like to add black pepper to ours and of course James adds Tabasco on everything so he'll drizzle that on for another kick of flavor. This recipe has loads of fiber, vitamin C and A, calcium, and lean protein. The Spinach and Feta sausage has only 100calories per link and 8-10 grams of lean protein. The sausage is all natural, free of preservatives and nitrates, and of course Gluten Free! Can't beat that, especially for their flavor.

Cheers,
LC
