Spinach Tomato Pesto Pizza

If you are my trainer, please don’t read this.  Know why?  Because I had a slice of this pizza last night and it was AWESOME!!!  (And not on my sugar detox diet.  Shh!!!  Don’t rat me out!)  This is the first “clean” pizza I ate that actually tasted good!

You can’t get more “kids food” than pizza, and this is a terrific recipe I found online.  Here is the link: cleaneatingonline.com.   The kids helped me to prepare it, so it was a fun project as well as healthy and it didn’t take long to prepare.  We were out of walnuts, so we skipped that but everything else was in there.
