Healthy Pizza – A guest post by Ewan Buda

My son who is 12 years old has been given a project to do at school.  He has had to come up with a healthy recipe and present it in an innovative way.  I thought it would be nice for him to takeover and post a page on the website, so here it is……………

 

Year 8 Spice Design Takeaway Homework Project October 2017

Most people think that fast food has got to be unhealthy, I am going to prove them wrong!

I did an internet search for healthy recipes and decided this one on the Good to Know recipe website looked nice and would be something everyone in my family would eat.  I did change it a little bit for ingredients I had at home.

The pizzas turned out really well and we would definitely make them again.  I would put a bit of ham or chicken on for extra protein next time too.

Overall, I think this proves that you can make a healthy version of junk food at home and in 15 minutes!  It was cheap and tasted great!
