Mini Pepper Pizzas
These hand-held Mini Pepper Pizzas embrace the deliciousness of pizza with a healthy twist! They include way more nutrients than the a bagel bite or pizza roll and they make a perfect appetizer for parties and a great healthy snack for kids… and adults!
Raw mini peppers are one of my favorite healthy snacks. They’re so perfect dipped in hummus or guacamole. You can eat them whole, seeds and all, so munch away.
These mini peppers were especially fresh and crisp with beautiful vibrant colors. Sweet peppers from Divine Flavor are seriously my favorite! And with good reason too – Divine Flavor produces high-quality, non-GMO foods grown in nutrient-rich, never over-farmed soil.
