Arugula mushroom pizza is always a hit on homemade pizza night. Our editor’s husband has a big green egg style grill that gets brick-oven-pizza hot!
You already love arugula for that little zest it adds to your salads and sides. If the kids need an easier intro to this leafy green, try adding it to a pizza.
Packed with vitamins A and K and beta-carotene, arugula helps promote a healthy immune system, stronger vision, and proper blood clotting. It’s also a low-calorie superfood!
Cheese is optional when it comes to making pizzas in the Green Child kitchens. Some of our kids have dairy sensitivities and others just don’t like it. So, feel free to use your cheese of choice, a cheese substitute, or omit it altogether.
