Healthy Pizza Bites

Healthy Pizza Bites

I am always on the hunt for healthy foods that my kids will actually eat.  My oldest is my picky one but that is a new thing in the last year, she use to eat pretty much anything I gave her.  Now she won’t eat anything unless it is mac n cheese or pizza.  So when I found this healthy pizza bites recipe on Dashing Dish it was something I had to try and see if the girls would like it.
First I have to say that I absolutely LOVE these.  For me they taste just like pizza and I can eat them all day.  My husband was also surprised that they tasted like pizza and were so yummy.  The kids also liked them but my oldest was the least thrilled out of all of us.  She ate them but did not find them to be as awesome as the rest of us (that’s my picky eater).  However she ate a whole meal that was pretty much made out of a veggie so that is good enough for me.  My little one (who eats anything) thought these were great and ate every single one I gave her.
So if you are like me and keep trying to get your kids to eat healthier you simply have to give these a try.  Even if they are not totally thrilled if they eat them it is a win.

    This is the second thing I have seen done with cauliflower for pizza, I am definitely going to have to try them because like yours my child is getting pretty picky about vegetables.

    Thanks for sharing!

      Glad to know mine is not the only one, I wish they would just eat the good stuff would make it a lot easier. I hope your little one likes these too!

    These look so great, and I can even eat them since they don’t have flour. I have a link party on Wednesdays, and I would love it if you would link this and any other posts. It is called Wednesdays Adorned From Above Link Party. It runs from Wednesday to Sundays.
    I hope to see you there. I am your newest follower, and I would love for your to follow me also. Have a great Day.

    My dietitian friends tell me pizza can be a healthy food (protein, vegetables and complex carbohydrates). “Can be” is the key. Those thick crusted, deep dish, meat lovers specials with extra cheese are probably not what my dietitian friends are talking about as far as a healthy meal.
