  • First let me tell you the story behind the pizza.
    Sometime this month I joined Indiblogger, a site that is meant for Indian bloggers all over the world. A young friend and I were supposed to go for a bloggers meet in Mumbai but I couldn't make it eventually. I took part in an online contest instead. They called it the Indiblogger Recipe contest. You have to submit a recipe using one or more of Del Monte products.
    My kids hated vegetables when they were younger. So I had to come up with creative ways to get them to eat their veggies. Since they loved pizzas I had concocted this recipe. Here it is:

    The Full Del Monte Healthy Pizza

    4 pizza bases
    2 onions
    2 tomatoes
    2 capsicums
    1 cup grated carrots
    1 cup grated cheese
    Del Monte ketchup
    Del Monte pasta sauce
    Del Monte sliced olives, black or green
    Del Monte extra virgin olive oil
    How to Assemble the Pizza

    Turn the pizza base upside down, so that the flat part is on the top. Put a generous dollop of DelMonte pasta sauce, or ketchup, over the pizza base. Now spread a layer of onion rounds, interspersed with tomato slices, followed by capsicum rounds.
    Now sprinkle grated cheese (or you can use sliced cheese) on the top. Now take the sliced olives and spread evenly over the pizza. Finish off with a shower of grated carrots. Press firmly.
    Add a swirl of extra virgin olive oil for added flavour and health benefits.
    Pop the pizza into the microwave for a minute. Alternatively you can cook it on a tawa or a non-stick pan.
    Cut into slices with a pizza cutter or kitchen scissors.
    If you love a little extra ketchup then you can dot the pizza with some more ketchup. Or put some ketchup in a katori (bowl) and dip your pizza slice in it before eating it.
    Enjoy your healthy pizza.
