Green Salad Whole-Wheat Pizza

Make it easier for you to eat your salad by putting it all together in one pizza pie. This isn't hard to eat so there is no need to fret because as Shape suggest, the greens will adapt to the pie due to heat. 

2 tablespoons cornmeal (for dusting pan)
1 package (14 ounces) refrigerated, prepared whole-wheat pizza dough
1/3 cup marinara sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 cup grated reduced-fat or plant-based cheese
2 cups fresh dark leafy greens
1 1/2 cups fresh cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 bell pepper, diced
1 ripe avocado, sliced
1/4 cup roasted pistachios
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sprinkle a 14-inch pizza pan or stone with cornmeal. Roll out pizza dough and place on pan or stone. Spread marinara sauce over dough and sprinkle with oregano and cheese. Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes until dough is golden and cooked through. Remove from oven and top with greens, tomatoes, bell pepper, avocado, and pistachios. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and olive oil and serve immediately.
Not every step toward a more nutritious diet has to taste like one. Forget the steamed broccoli and try incorporating more great-for-you greens into your favorite meals you're already making.
