New Beginnings Family Academy, along with friends at Whole Foods Market and funder Whole Kids Foundation, have teamed up to share some delicious recipes that promote nutrition, wellness, and fun collaboration in the kitchen.   

“We hope you enjoy trying these monthly recipes that support healthy eating,” said NBFA Director and CEO Ronelle Swagerty. “This is a great way for friends and family to make smart food choices together.”   
This month, NBFA is happy to share a recipe for the Summer Squash and Goat Cheese Pizza!  
Whole Foods Market Summer Squash and Goat Cheese Pizza 

Homemade pizza is a fun dish that the whole family can enjoy making together. And with only five ingredients, this recipe is a quick and easy meal to make on a summer day.  


Start by placing your dough onto an oiled baking sheet and stretch the dough to form your crust. After brushing the crust with oil, add your toppings and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes. For the full recipe, click here

Tips From Chef Todd: 

Each month, NBFA Chef and Food Service Supervisor Todd Daigle will provide healthy tips on the recipe to give more options for taste or dietary restrictions.

In a Rush? Swap out the pizza dough for a pre-made store-bought pizza crust.   

Try Other Cheeses and Vegetables Instead of goat cheese, choose a classic pizza cheese like mozzarella. Instead of summer squash, choose peppers or spinach.
