My favorite meal for lunch! Yum!!

Lunch can be a tough one for me.  After a while, I don't want any more salads!  However, keeping it healthy and simple can be a struggle.  This is an easy lunch idea that always fills me up!

Lavosh pizza

Whole wheat lavosh bread (Trader Joe's)
veggie shreds mozzarella cheese (I prefer this brand because it melts and tastes good)
purple onion cut into thin strips
hummus (any kind will do.  I prefer cilantro jalapeno from Costco)
portobello mushrooms (optional...and, any mushrooms will work)
baby spinach (I use organic from Costco)
grape or cherry tomatoes chopped (I buy the grape tomatoes from Costco)
red bell pepper diced

Heat the oven to broil.  Put one lavosh on a cookie sheet.  Put in oven until toasted (not brown just toasted).  Remove from oven.  Spread hummus on lavosh then follow with spinach, tomatoes, purple onion, mushrooms, and red pepper.  Top with a small amount of veggie shreds.  Place in broiler and heat until cheese melts.  Pull out of oven and use pizza cutter to cut into squares.  Enjoy!

One lavosh serves 2-3 people


  1. That looks quite delectable! And it's just perfect for when you don’t have enough time to prepare a heavy lunch. And I think it’s not bad to skip salad once in a while and indulge your cravings. I certainly wouldn't say no to a delicious pizza like yours. And since it's full of veggies, it counts as salad, right? Haha!

    1. I agree Mae! I love salads but every once in a while you need to indulge. :) Plus, it's full of veggies, so it's a salad and a pizza!
