Whenever I order pizza (which is rare), my favorite kind is the “meat lovers” pizza.  Gimme some pepperoni, sausage, ham, bacon, whatever meaty goodness I can get!  Obviously, when I do eat pizza, health value is not my top priority.  Plus, I’m not a fan of the typical veggies that come on pizza:  peppers, onions, etc.


This vegetable pizza, however, puts a little twist on the original version you find at pizza joints.  I loved putting broccoli and carrots on pizza!  I also loved the ranch sauce in place of tomato based sauce.  It really compliments the veggies well!  I dunno about you, but I love dipping veggies in ranch dressing, and this was definitely similar to that.  One of the best things about this pizza is that 1 slice is only 240 calories!
