Rice to the Rescue

Making homemade pizza usually involves making a crust that has to be tossed and kneaded and put in a warm place to rise. It’s a good way to include physical activity in your cooking – but at the end of a long day, you may want a simpler solution.

Today’s Health-e-Recipe uses rice for a crust that holds a variety of healthy veggies and part-skim mozzarella. Rice is the go-to grain for many of the 2 million people in the U.S. who have celiac disease, where eating any food that contains a protein called “gluten” can cause severe intestinal problems. Gluten is found in wheat and other grains.

Here, rice allows you to avoid highly processed frozen or delivered pizzas, and even mixes in Parmesan for a delicious cheesy flavor to complement the cancer-fighting garlic, mushrooms, peppers, onions and tomato sauce, whose phytochemicals all work together in this dish to protect your health.
