Mini Green Pizzas

There’s tons of nutrition information swirling around out there; how do you know what to believe? Look for these red flags to know when to be a skeptic.

Looking for an easy weeknight meal or weekend lunch? Whip up these mini green pizzas topped with spinach and pesto to pack on the fiber and flavor. For a unique spin on your regular pizza pie, this recipe uses ricotta cheese instead of mozzarella, and has gourmet toppings like baby spinach, pesto and sesame seeds. No need to wait for the dough to rise -- I've subbed the dough for toasted gluten-free bread instead.
