With the Oscar’s just around the corner, you’ve probably started to salivate over the hundreds…
This margherita pizza recipe is really simple, so be sure to include the kids when preparing it! :) We love thin crust pizza, so when I saw this recipe in The Looneyspoons Collection Cookbook, I knew I had to try it out. Instead of pizza sauce, we used ranch greek yogurt, and it really tied it all together.

The Looneyspoons Collection
This margherita pizza recipe is adapted from The Looneyspoons Collection Cookbook. I have a huge collection of cookbooks, and am not easily impressed, but was happy to review this one. The Looneyspoons Collection is a book that pretty much everyone will love. I love how many vegetarian recipes are included! Most cookbooks just load every recipe up with meat – but not this one! That's an automatic slam dunk in my book.
One thing that is great about this cookbook (besides the things listed below), is that the recipes are healthier than those you'll find in most cookbooks – and they don't taste healthy! :) Boo ya!
The authors of this #1 bestselling cookbook in Canada are sisters and hosts of a healthy cooking show called, “Eat, Shrink & Be Merry”. The Looneyspoons Collection is huge! With 400 pages and over 300 recipes, plus hundreds of healthy eating tips, this is the only cookbook you'll need for a long time.
The Looneyspoons Collection is full color, easy to follow, full of great tips, and humor! From their “Unbeleafable Spinach Salad” to their “Chowdown Chickpea Chowda”, The Looneyspoons Collection is full of recipes I've never seen before! I love it and will be purchasing a few copies for friends to give as gifts, because it really is that awesome.
