More pizza, please!
Looking to cook something healthy for your lover? This recipe will impress him or her while keeping them fit for extracurricular activities!
I recommend get your pizza dough from your local bakery. In Pittsburgh, the best place I known is Mancini’s Bakery in the Strip District, Market Square and McKees Rocks for fresh dough (I bake here). Here you can get a variety of dough, pesto, tomato basil, multigrain and traditional Italian to whip up some tasty pizza. I have included directions to make your own dough, as well, if you are more of a pizza purist!
- 1/3 cup ot Ricotta Cheese
- 1 1/2 teaspoons honey
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla

- 3 tablespoons regular rolled oats
- 4 teaspoons packed brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds or toasted wheat germ
