Happy Monday! This week our schedule is jamming to a different beat so why not mix things up and post a pizza recipe for Meatless Monday. Better yet why not this Golden Beet pizza because it tastes so good it’ golden on a whole different level. No pizza tonight, as much as the girls would love that, because this week is all about soccer in our house with state qualifier games for one and the USA Cup for the other. We’ll be dreaming of pizza all week and enjoying it on Friday in more ways than one! Yep stay tuned I might just have another pizza recipe posting this week but if not for sure next week.
I’m all about a happy healthy balance, which you probably already know, and this week will be full of quick eats, snacks, smoothies, and probably lots of toasts and sandwiches. Oh and coffee! We are already planning ahead with the sourdough schedule to make sure we have it all week long. Not only do the girls have soccer all week and soccer activities I’m also going to get in 5-6 barre classes as I’m still trying to complete the 15 in 30 challenge in only 18 days since we were out of town and will be leaving again before the end of the month. I got 6 classes in the last week and this week I’ve got 5:30am classes planned for 4 days and a double day with an Intensive hour and a half class tomorrow. So come the weekend we will want all the pizza and I’m going to need some relaxing. Depending on how the games shake out I might try to get a class in on Saturday if there is time and my body is up to it.
No guilt here when we have homemade pizza and we enjoy it to the fullest. If one was to need justification this one has beets, can’t go wrong with a good veggie pizza and there isn’t a lot of heavy cheese either. What there is though is the chewy puffy homemade Neapolitan crust that I’ll be dipping in olive oil and maybe even balsamic! Top that delicious crust with sautéed onions, lots of roasted golden beets, a little fresh mozzarella (Miyoko’s Fresh VeganMozz), and fresh ground sea salt and pepper. Oh so good! Of course wine is optional but I like to enjoy my pizza with a glass.
For some reason my Whole Foods doesn’t always carry golden beets so I will have to ask them for them sometimes and it usually takes a day or two at most to get in. I went to grab golden beets to take up for the 4th of July week as my parents wanted to do homemade pizzas with my husband’s “famous” crust. I was all in since my dad has a pretty sweet grill that gets super hot and makes great pizza, goals for our next grill since it’s dying. My Whole Foods was OUT! I was down to the wire and gave up on making the pizza and planned to just make a Margherita Pizza. I could have made it with regular beets but I wasn’t feeling it. I ran in to Trader Joe’s to pick up my Teeny Tiny Avocados and guess what? They had packaged already roasted cold GOLDEN BEETS!!! Yes just like Love Beets or other packaged cold already roasted beets but GOLDEN! It was a sign! Trust me when I say that I enjoyed every bite of this pizza combo.
If pizza isn’t your thing I hope you are inspired by one of the Meatless Monday recipes linked up below. My co-host Deborah and I are excited to see what’s cookin’ (or not) in or outside of your kitchen!You can't beet this pizza combo, it's golden!
