When it comes to making dinner for the whole family, it can be tricky to make something that everyone will like, especially when you have younger children or less-adventurous eaters. But there is one thing that everyone loves-and that’s pizza!
When you make pizza at home, it will always be instantly more nutritious than the delivery variety. To encourage young ones to eat more veggies, get them involved in the kitchen and cooking process! Children feel empowered when they create their own pizzas, and are more likely to be adventurous with eating vegetables if they decorate their own pie J

2 whole wheat pizza dough balls
Marinara sauce or your favorite pasta sauce

The great thing about making pizza at home is that you decide how thin/thick you want your crust.
You can also divide the dough into 4 small pizzas instead of 2 large pizzas, which allows for more individualization of flavor combinations.
Ladle sauce onto each pizza and sprinkle with cheese. Add vegetables, and then bake for 12 minutes.
Increase oven heat to 425˚ F and bake for 5 minutes.
