Healthy Freeze-Dried Pizza | Comfort Food for On The Go

healthy delicious freeze-dried pizza

Freeze-dried pizza. Seriously, no joke.

Where's my fellow foodies?!

Recently I was craving really good pizza that had a killer tomato sauce and a nice crispy crust. I was out dog training for the entire day and a quick Google search returned zero pizza options. Zero. Nilch. I remember thinking "Are you serious?! How hard is it to find good pizza!!"

But actually, I've found finding good, let alone great, pizza that isn't drowning in grease to be a real struggle. And that's when it hit me. Could pizza be freeze-dried? What if I made a pizza that could be kept in the pantry and taken on the go when I know I'm out for the entire day? 

I took the thought one step further.

What if I made a healthy pizza with no processed flour, that is gluten-free and, dare I say it, delicious.

Pizza Toast!

This pizza crams in over 4 servings of vegetables to make you feel full and satisfied. The crust, made mostly of cauliflower, has a nice crunch; when freeze-dried, the pizza becomes more like a pizza flavored toast.

Park Prescriptions. Yeah, It’s A Thing!

Here’s something I bet you never thought you’d hear from a doctor, “I’m writing you a prescription for a trip to the park.” Wait, what? Is this the adult version of that recurring daydream from elementary school where recess is the only class of the day and pizza is the only thing served by the lunch ladies? Nope, it’s not a dream, Park Prescriptions are a very real thing that began with a pilot program in San Francisco parks in 2012 and has evolved to include over 100 programs across the United States.
