I’m a New Yorker! Well, at least I’ve been one for the past 20 years! And I couldn’t be a “real” New Yorker if I didn’t appreciate pizza. So, appreciate pizza I do. This autumn-inspired, Meatless Monday-friendly version is no exception! Not only are these scrumptious slices loaded with seasonal farmers’ market goodies, they’re full of good-for-your gut benefits. (As luck would have it, “good gut health” is this month’s Recipe Redux theme, too!) This recipe is rich in prebiotics—which feed friendly bacteria in the gut.

Cheesy pizza is a food that I simply don’t think I could live without! Luckily, as long as it’s not loaded up with greasy pepperoni and sausage, it can be good for you. And if you top it with plenty of vegetables, it can be extra good for you. That’s what I’ve done here with a luscious-tasting spinach-artichoke topping that was inspired by spinach-artichoke dip! It’s served on flatbread, like whole grain pocketless pita, to keep it simple. Enjoy it as a personal pizza anytime. Or arrange slices on a platter for a party appetizer that’ll impress your guests. Calories saved: 90 (or more!) Why it’s better for you? It’s loaded with veggie and whole grain goodness! Disclosure Note: One...
