If we were to order in instead, the sodium content would be prohibitive for Stealthy Dad. One slice of Pizza Hut's Veggie Lover's on Hand-Tossed crust contains 530mg of sodium. Casey's Vegetable Pizza contains 671mg. A slice of Domino's Hand Tossed: 405mg, a slice of Papa John's medium Garden Fresh: 500mg.
As prepared in the photo above, each slice (1/8 of the pizza) contains about 180mg sodium. This is what it is made of:
Basic Pizza Dough
Top it with:
8oz unsalted tomato sauce, seasoned with garlic, basil, oregano to taste.
4 oz shredded cheddar cheese
4 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup chopped broccoli
1/4 cup diced onions (hides well under the cheese)
1 cup sliced red pepper
1 cup sliced mushrooms
Bake at 400F for 16-18 minutes. Enjoy, and watch your youngsters eat vegetables!
