Seriously, my homemade pizza game has been forever changed with this crust.

The idea of this pizza started months ago when my husband texted me a link to an article about a chef in New York City who lost a ridiculous amount of weight “eating pizza everyday”. Like most click bait, that wasn’t really the whole story… he ate super clean breakfast, dinner and snacks, and would eat a Neapolitan pizza for lunch every day. He said it was enough to feel like a splurge but with the super light crust, simple tomato sauce and minimal amount of cheese, it wasn’t that bad for him.

I had never made Neapolitan pizza, and I was bummed that the long article didn’t actually include a recipe, so I started researching Neapolitan pizza dough. I went down a rabbit hole and a couple of months later emerged with this recipe, which is now our favorite pizza dough!

Since Joseph was diagnosed with his food allergies (soy, egg and peanuts), it’s definitely been difficult to find packaged snacks to keep in the pantry and in the diaper bag for him. We’ve been defaulting to Crispy Fruit – he loves the apples! – so that there’s something easy to grab if we’ll be out during snack time. However, I wanted to add some variety to his snack options, and went on a quest to find healthier granola bars.

While I love the previous granola bars I’ve made, they include quite a bit of sugar, oil, peanut butter, etc… not exactly what I had in mind. After searching the Internets for something simpler and healthier, I found a minimal recipe with only a few ingredients that I could easily adapt for Joseph’s needs. Hurray!
