Real Food: Hippie Pizza

At the beginning of the year, Joey and I stopped eating processed foods.  We were overweight and unhealthy, and we knew we had to do something about it. When we first started our “diet”, we didn’t really know what we were doing.  We knew we wanted to eat lots of whole grains, fruits, and veggies as well as cut down on our sugar, fat, and meat intake.  It was a lot of work to get started, but so far we’ve done really well.  We make almost all our food at home from scratch, and we’ve lost around 50 pounds between us.  We still miss our old unhealthy favorites though, so we’ve been trying to recreate them on our own and make them healthier along the way.  One of our favorites is homemade pizza, which we lovingly call hippie pizza.  Hippie pizza is made from 100% whole ingredients, and in my opinion, 100% more delicious than any pizza I have had delivered to my home in a cardboard box.  It also takes less time from start to finish than the average pizza delivery in rural Mississippi.

Here’s how you can make it at home:
