Roasted Garlic and Vegetable Pizza
I wanted to title this post "diet pizza" because whenever someone is on a diet they eat so much grilled chicken and vegetables. To me that's...boring? Yes... boring. But once in awhile those foods just sound good! I was so excited to have found dairy free/soy free pizza crusts at Whole Foods (Udi brand if you're interested- very good!) so I decided pizza needed to happen. I'm still not loving dairy free cheese so I decided to use one of my favorite ingredients, roasted garlic, to spice it up. This pizza was delicious and healthy- can you beat that?

1 head of garlic
1/2 cup marinara sauce
2 cups assorted cooked veggies, diced small
3 ounces grilled chicken, diced small
1/4 cup cheddar cheese*
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese*
1- Preheat the oven to 350. Cut the top off the head of garlic, drizzle with olive oil, and wrap in foil. Bake for 1 hour. Once it's done squeeze the roasted garlic out of the bulb and mash with a fork.
2- Mix the marinara sauce with the roasted garlic paste and set aside.
3- Assemble your pizza crust. Top with a thin layer of sauce, veggies, and chicken. Sprinkle the cheese on top and bake 10-12 minutes, until your crust is golden and cheese is melted.

Daiya cheese works well
