The game is over, and it’s not quite time for lunch or dinner. But you may want to consider making a fun alternative snack of mini veggie pizzas to refuel your young athlete after a long game.
Just follow the directions below.
Allow for 15 minutes of preparation before you leave for the game.
Split each bagel and add 1 tablespoon of pizza sauce onto each half. Top with your favorite veggies (i.e. bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, etc.) and divide the cheese evenly over each mini pizza. When you get home from the game, broil your already prepared mini pizzas until cheese is bubbly.
You have made a healthy, vegetarian alternative to a traditional delivery pizza.
