Nutritional values

The mix of vegetables not only add color and flavor to this pizza but also a significant portion of important nutrients. Folic acid and iron are well represented in this recipe, and the pumpkin and beets provide carotenoids, an antioxidant which helps protect our cells from free radicals.

If beets aren't available, use turnips or parsnips instead.
