Quick Meals

Busy with work, after school sports and homework, and feel like you have very little time to cook for your family? You’re not alone……

Whether it’s late evenings at the office or late games at the hockey arena, there are many days when we just don’t know what to cook for dinner or feel we have the time or energy to do so. Having a selection of quick healthy meals that your family enjoy is just what you need; prep time 10 minutes and cooking time under 30 minutes.

Here is a delicious 10 minute meal that you can try with your family:

Rainbow Flatbread Pizza


–        Stonefire nana bread, flat bread or pita bread for your crust

–        ½ cup of pizza sauce, homemade or store-bought

–        ½ cup shredded part-skim Mozzaralla cheese

–        Chopped colourful veggies (peppers, grape tomatoes, broccoli, red onions, fresh mushrooms, etc)

–        2 tsp olive oil

–        1 tsp Italian seasonings

–        Optional toppings: grated parmesan cheese, red pepper flakes


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lay out crust on a large baking sheet. Spread pizza sauce to your crust. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the pizza sauce. Then layer the veggies in a rainbow pattern on top of the cheese. Drizzle or mist your pizza(s) with a bit of olive oil. Then sprinkle each pizza with the Italian seasonings. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the veggies are cooked and the crust is slightly golden. Remove pizza(s) from oven, and sprinkle with optional toppings if desired. Slice and serve warm.
