Sun-dried tomato, thyme, and basil pizza

1 12-inch thin crust
4 cloves Garlic, minced
1/2 cup Skim ricotta cheese
1/2 cup Sun-dried tomatoes (dried not packed in oil),reconstituted & chopped
1 tsp Thyme
2 tsp Basil

Preheat oven to 425 F.

Arrange garlic, cheese, tomatoes around crust, then sprinkle basil and thyme evenly over entire pizza.

Bake on lowest rack of the oven for approximately 20 minutes, or until crust turns brown and the toppings are hot.


Broccoli Rabe and Chickpea Pita Pizzas

6 Servings

1 large bunch broccoli rabe, chopped
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes
6 (6-inch) pocket-less pitas

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Spray a large heavy skillet with cooking spray and heat over moderately high heat. Cook broccoli rabe, turning it with tongs, until wilted. Add 1/4 cup water and pepper flakes and simmer, covered partially, until broccoli rabe is crisp-tender and almost all liquid is evaporated, about 2 minutes.

Spread pitas with hummus and top with broccoli rabe and Parmesan. Arrange pita pizzas on a large baking sheet and bake in middle of oven 10 minutes, or until edges are golden.

Default vegetarian pizza

I thought a vegetarian didn't use any products from animals, like milk products as in cheese. My friend talked me into taking a one day vegetarian class with her so she could learn how to cook vegetables. This class didn't have any vegetable cooking in it. A true vegan type of cooking. Too extreme for me.

Default all kinds of veggies

There are so many types of vegetarians now. The Vegans are the strictest that do no have animal products of any type. Do know gelatin is an animal product??? What a surprise.

I enjoy seafood and dairy products and I feel they are also provide essential nutrients. The veggies that do not include these have extra challenges of getting the nutrients & protein that their diet may lack.

Did ya'all see the new Smart Ones Vegetarian Pizza? The whole thing costs 9 points. I haven't tried it yet. I'm happy to see more Veggie entrees.
