Pizza allows a lot of room for creativity, and I want to see your best inventions this month! Think of your favorite pizza toppings – do you like Hawaiian? BBQ? Take that idea and make it in a healthy way using seasonings and creative toppings to create the same flavors. You could season eggplant like bacon, use grilled tempeh, whatever you want!

Then snap a shot and submit it to the Facebook group! You can also submit any of the pizzas you made this month – I’d love to see what you’re up to!
