Healthy homemade 'take-away' pizza

As a busy mum take away has often been a part of our weekly meals. I always thought of it as convenient and time saving - even when I had to drive to the shop to get it!

But, aside from not being terribly convenient at all, this was detrimental to our health and our finances. Take away pizza for the whole family is EXPENSIVE! And fatty, salty and kind of gross really.

Even my less healthy homemade pizza, covered in cheese and bacon, is a healthier option that the healthiest takeaway pizza.

So my partner and I decided that Friday nights would be "homemade take-away" nights. And one of our favourite's is gluten free, homemade pizza - cheap, healthy and with minimal time and fuss.

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 15-20 minutes
Serves: For my family 2 pizzas serves 2 adults and 2 toddlers with left overs for 1 adult lunch the following day.

A small dash of oil
Gluten free pizza base
Tomato paste/pizza sauce
An assortment of vegies
A sprinkling of pine nuts
A scatter of chopped feta
A few fresh basil leaves

1) Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees.

2) Put a very small amount of oil on a baking tray and place your pizza base on it.

Prepared pizza base - ready for the yumminess to be added!

3) Spread your pizza base with your sauce/paste.

4) Place your vegies on the pizza.

A nice selection of fresh vegies ready to go on.

5) Scatter the pine nuts, feta and basil onto the pizza.

One yummy, healthy pizza ready to eat!

6) Cook in the over for approximately 15 minutes or until cooked.

7) Enjoy with a nice glass of wine!

It goes well with wine!

Note: For this pizza I used tomato, zucchini, sweet potato, kale and mushroom from the fridge, and some capsicum and chilli from the garden. You could use whatever you have growing in your garden or that needs to be used from the fridge.

If you use plain tomato paste it can be nice to add some garlic or dried herbs for added flavour.

For the kids and partner (who aren't quite as health conscious as me!), I added plenty of bacon and grated light tasty cheese and omitted the kale, pine nuts, basil and chilli. Not so healthy, but still 100 times better than a shop bought pizza!
