Candy striped beet, garlic & onion pizza

Candy Crush, be ready to meet the pizza that would be at par with your colorful presentations as Nutrition for Us brings us a recipe that would not only be so interestingly candy-like but would also be as healthy as a beet! 

This Candy Striped beet recipe makes around 2 solo pies. 

1 homemade pizza crust ( I love this recipe)
1 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 cup tomato basil marinara
2 medium sized candy striped beets, sliced
8 cloves garlic, peeled
8 small slices white onion
Salt and pepper

  1. Prehat oven to 425 degrees F. Grease a pizza pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Roll the dough out into 1/3 inch thickness. Separate into two pieces and roll into medium circles. Cover each circle with ½ cup marinara. Then top each dough with ½ cup shredded mozzarella. Place about 6 – 7 slices of beets on each pizza, along with 4 cloves of garlic and 4 slices of onion. Garnish with a dash of salt and pepper.
  3. Place pizzas on the pizza pan. Bake pizzas for about 12 minutes, or until golden brown, puffy and cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
