Prepare & cook the vegetables:  Heat up the oven to 400F. Rinse and dry all produces. Peel the beets. Cut the onion  and beets in thin dices of about 1 cm thick. Place the onion and beet dices on a baking sheet lined with parchment or non stick-liner. Drizzle the vegetables with oil (1 tsp, 1/2 tsp) , sprinkle with salt (1/2 tsp, ¼ tsp) and pepper (1/4 tsp, 1/8 tsp). Cook for about 15 minutes in the oven or until the vegetables are cooked through and the onion is starting to become golden.


Cook the sausage: Place the Italian sausages on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or non-stick liner. Drizzle oil (1/2 tsp, 1 tsp) on the sausages. Bake in the oven until the sausages are fully cooked, about 15 minutes. When the sausages are cooked, cut in 1/2 to 1 cm thick slices. Keep the oven on to heat up the pizzas. 

Note: Ensure the sausage is cooked to at least 165F.


Prepare the pizza: Once the vegetables and sausages are cooked, place them in a medium bowl. Place the naan bread on one or both lined baking sheet. Spread most of the saskatoon cherry balsamic dressing (3 tbsp, 1/3 cup) evenly on the naan breads. Make sure to keep 1 to 2 tbsp of the dressing for the salad.  Evenly place the vegetables and sausage on the naan breads. Cook the pizza in the oven at 400 for about 5 minutes. 

Gluten-Friendly: Use Gluten Free Pizza dough* instead of the naan bread. Bake about 8 to 10 minutes.

*Gluten Friendly 2 portion plan note: the Gluten Free Pizza dough is inside your delivery bag as it is too large to fit inside the meal box. Keep the Gluten Free Pizza dough in the fridge or freezer. 


Assemble the dressed arugula: In a medium bowl, place the arugula & greens and the rest (1 tbsp, 2 tbsp)  of the saskatoon cherry balsamic dressing. Combine to coat the arugula with the dressing. 


Garnish and serve: Place the  dressed arugula and greens on top of each pizza, top with shaved parmesan and pumpkin seeds. Serve.

Note: You can also serve the dressed arugula and greens as a side salad.

Eating seasonal vegetables, ideally local if possible, is not only an important environmental strategy, but also has many health benefits. Vegetables grown in season, have higher soluble vitamins and flavonoids (those disease fighting powerhouses).
