Heath's Saucy Pizza By: Abby R.
My 2-year-old son, Heath, has cystic fibrosis. He was tested at birth and diagnosed within two weeks. He is the typical 2-year-old boy, who is wild and has no fear! We love pizza in our house and have a Friday night tradition of making homemade pizzas and eating in the den while we watch a movie. It's something we all look forward to each week. We had typically made traditional pizzas with marinara sauce until my 4-year-old, daughter, Adah, (cystic fibrosis recessive gene) started requesting "no sauce.” Heath now requests "with sauce," hence the recipe title, "Heath's Saucy Pizza." Having the flexibility for everyone to make their own "special" pizza is fun for the kids and it allows my husband and I to watch our calorie intake while increasing Heath's.
