Why we love Primavera Pizza Recipe
I’m always in the mood for new pizza creations! I love the Trader Joes ready to cook whole wheat pizza dough! It’s simple because it can baked with a variety of toppings. Some days I just love not having to mess with making the dough.
My daughter Kate and I ate this whole pizza by ourselves… it was really great cold for leftovers too! I think we were both a little sad when the last piece was gone! (not sure whether it was her or me that ate it) hahah. 🙂
What does Primavera mean?
People are often surprised by how chilly winters can get in Italy, so it’s always a relief when the spring sunshine arrives. Primavera means spring – as well as being the name of Botticelli’s infamous Renaissance painting.
Our primavera pizza is a spring-weather recipe and surely a favorite this time of year in celebration of all things light and fresh.
Ingredients in Primavera Pizza Recipe
• Asparagus- is low in calories and a great source of nutrients, including fiber, folate and vitamins A, C and K. Additionally, eating asparagus has a number of potential health benefits, including weight loss, improved digestion, healthy pregnancy outcomes and lower blood pressure.
• Red Onion- is full of sulfur compounds that protect the body from ulcers and various cancers. They can also fight bacteria in the urinary tract. The most important of these compounds is called quercetin – an antioxidant compound that could provide protection against cancer, heart disease and allergies.
• Parmesan Cheese- is a good source of protein and fat. It’s rich in vitamins and minerals like calcium, vitamin A, vitamins B6 and B12, phosphorus, zinc, and copper.
• Edam Cheese- is a mild-flavoured lower-fat cheese, relatively speaking (around 27 per cent fat), but it is by no means the lowest. Enjoy with as part of a meal.
• Olive Oil- is widely recognized as one of the world’s healthiest oils. In fact, people tend to live longer and healthier lives in regions where olive oil is a staple part. It is rich in healthy monounsaturated fats, contains large amounts of antioxidants, strong anti-inflammatory properties, may help prevent strokes, protective against heart disease.
• Whole Wheat Pizza Crust- made with whole-wheat flour (including whole white wheat flour) is healthier than regular white crust, as it offers whole grains and fiber and is digested more slowly than refined grains.

The snow is melting, warmer days are coming, and I am upping my mileage. As I am coming out of my winter hibernation my body is reminding me that I need to get some stretches added into my workouts. I know there are some of you that are true yogis, I am not. I think that yoga is great and I would totally do it….if I happen to have some extra hours in my day that I can’t fill with kid stuff, house stuff, or reading a good book.
