For so many people, pizza is the ultimate comfort food. But is it really comforting when most of he ingredients used in pizza are harmful to your health? Thankfully, there’s a way to make pizza that is not only incredibly delicious, but also truly comforting and nourishing to your body. You may find that this recipe becomes your new favorite pizza for its flavors and also how it leaves you feeling.
In this pizza recipe, potato is used for the pizza crust. And when you’re seeking comfort, potato is the food you should really reach for. As I share in my book Life-Changing Foods, potatoes offer us foundation and strength when we’re feeling blurred, dizzy, foggy, troubled, or adrift in our lives. If your ego is consuming you, potatoes can tap into the humble confidence within, overriding the toxic emotions that keep you from succeeding in the areas of life that truly matter. Potatoes reorient us, help us to feel pleased and gratified by our experiences, and guide us to make choices not based on ego but out of true grounding and stability.
