We're not afraid of frozen pizza. We even named our top picks as part of our on-going taste test series--Amy's Cheese Pizza won top honors. A new favorite recently hit the market: Peas of Mind's all-natural frozen pizzas. Each pie features broccoli, carrots, and cauliflower baked right into the crust, adding up to 1 1/2 servings of vegetables. You could try tricking your kids into eating these health-conscious pizzas, never mentioning their veggie credentials. But considering how yummy the pies taste, why bother? Our tasters--young and old alike--gobbled up both pies. They did detect a mild cauliflower flavor, but in a good way. Best of all: Each pizza takes only about 10 minutes in the oven.
Peas of Mind cheese and pepperoni pizzas are available in the frozen food sections of Super Target, Wegmans, and Whole Foods, as well as Amazon.com (About $5 for one 8-inch pizza).
