(Yields 6 slices; 147 calories, 81.6g fat, 32.5g carb, 5.9g pro per slice)


  • 3 teaspoons avocado oil
  • 1/4 cup zucchini finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup carrots finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup onion finely chopped
  • 1/4 spinach finely chopped
  • 1/4 squash finely chopped
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 15 ounce can of tomatoes
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 


  1. Heat avocado oil on medium-low heat in a large skillet & cook vegetables until softened—roughly five minutes. 
  2. Add garlic and cook for another minute. 
  3. Add tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, dried basil, and salt. Bring the sauce to a boil, cover, and reduce heat. Simmer for 5 minutes. 
  4. Allow the sauce to cool and puree using an immersion blender. If you do not have an immersion blender, you can use a standard blender but be sure that your sauce is cooled before you puree it. You want the sauce to have a smooth consistency. 
  5. Use the sauce as a base for your next pizza top with mozzarella & enjoy!
