Pizza Stir Fry Recipe

Healthy Pizza Stir Fry Recipe- Kid approved

Pizza is definitely a kid favorite, but not so much a health promoting one. My kids love our alternative, Meatza, but it is messy to make and takes multiple pans. I’m a huge fan of stir-frys and decided that the ingredients of Pizza, minus the processed junk crust would make a great stir fry.

After a few tries, I finally have a recipe that I really like and that the kids seem to love. In fact, I had to make it twice to get a picture because they ate the first batch before I could photograph it. This also makes a surprisingly good breakfast, or leftovers can be used in making a pizza omelet, another kid favorite!
