Rainbow Pizza

Rainbow Pizza

One of the ways I get my 4 year old to eat her vegetables is by making this rainbow pizza. I admit, I enjoy it too. Making the rainbow made from colorful vegetables is so much fun. We switch it up every time, and use different vegetables from the different colors. I make the pizza dough in my Thermomix®, since it has a handy dough kneading function, but before I had it I made it in a stand mixer or even by hand. Let the dough rise for a couple of hours for best results.

Pick any toppings you want – remember, the rainbow has RED, ORANGE, YELLOW, GREEN, BLUE, INDIGO, VIOLET. We skipped the blue here and went with purple (“red onion”). 🙂 Bake in a pan on parchment paper, or a round pizza pan.
