Mediterranean Pizza

Sometime you crave Little Caesars but know that's a terrible idea. (even if you aren't worrying about eating healthy- that's not even real cheese! um gross?) So what's a better alternative - this guilt free DELCIOUS-NESS.

Mediterranean Pizza

Thin Crust Whole Wheat Pizza
¼ cup feta cheese crumbles
¼ cup diced tomatoes
2 T olive oil
1 cup mushrooms
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup spinach
Italian seasoning

Heat olive oil with minced garlic on a low heat for just about 2-3 minutes. Set aside to infuse the oil with the garlic flavor.

Brush oil on pizza crust.
Sprinkle feta, tomatoes and mushrooms on pizza.
Chop spinach, sprinkle on top of pizza. 
Drizzle with oil
Top with some Italian seasoning.

Bake for 15-20 minutes at 425. 

Roasted Vegetable Enchiladas

I rarely blog anymore. I mean, it's a been a year since my last post so that's pretty obvious. In the last few weeks, I've really tried to start eating healthy and cooking more at home. It's really me challenging myself to use my Bountiful Basket items. I've used a lot of great recipes in the last few weeks and wanted to to catalog them somewhere - mainly so my mom can find them easily! :) They are all pretty veggie-filled, so if you're a steak and tater kind person - ignore the food posts! 
Also, I often forget to take pics of my food or they are terrible quick photos. I'm cooking how am I supposed to remember to take pictures too? Seriously, Pioneer Woman - HOW DO YOU DO IT!?

I took a picture pre-baking but forgot to before we devoured it.
