It is often the times that we are feeling low energy that we reach for the convenient, pre-made comfort food. When we are tired we are more likely to go off the rails–but it is at these times that we most need a boost from nutritious foods. If you are on special diet be it gluten-free, vegan, or whatever else–you are more likely to prepare your own meals. This is one of the many reasons you likely eat healthier. At the same time–we don’t not always have the energy or motivation to make everything we eat.
I recently spent a very lazy afternoon reading and napping. I was tempted to go for something unhealthy but came up with this recipe instead. It only too a few minutes to throw together and the result was extremely satisfying. I give you Lazy Gluten-Free Vegan Pizza:
- Gluten-free pizza rice crust (I keep these on hand in freezer)
- Tomato sauce
- Summer squash
- Olive oil
- Salt & spices (I used onion powder)
- Preheat oven to 350
- Add tomato sauce, sliced summer squash, tomato slices, olive oil and spices
- Bake for 15 minutes
- Top with basil
Special tip: I noticed a huge difference when I cooked the pizza on the Martha Stewart parchment/foil wrap.
