Pizza is not just for humans. Birds love pizza too. You just need to prepare it a little differently sometimes.
You can easily start with a frozen pizza crust to bake, or a small ready-made whole wheat pizza crust, rice cake, or a large flour tortilla for the base of your pizza.
Add some of your bird's favorites such as minced or shredded carrots, broccoli, sweet potato, apple, bell peppers (any color or combination of colors), spinach, and so on.
Begin your pizza layering with a thin layer of one of the following on your pizza to help hold all the food together on the crust, rice cake or tortilla:
Organic Peanut butter or Almond Butter; a layer of sweet potato baby food, or mixed vegetables baby food (found in small size jars in your local grocery store).
Then layer on top any and all veggies and fruits your bird enjoys.
(I personally prefer not to use any cheese as some birds are not able to digest easily, and remember no onions, avocados, or chocolate for your bird's pizza.)
You can also sprinkle some wheat germ or wheatgrass powder on top for extra nutrition.
Place on non-stick non-teflon cookie sheet and bake in 350-degree oven for about 15 minutes to soften veggies. (If you are using frozen raw pizza dough crust, bake per directions on package)
Cool before serving to your bird.
