Recipe: Mango salsa pizza

Dietitian's tip: The skin of a mango is tough and not meant to be eaten. But peeling and pitting the fruit can be a challenge as the flesh clings to both the skin and large, flat seed at its center. For best results, cut downward along one side removing a "cheek." Remove the other cheek the same way. Place the cut portion on the cutting board flesh-side up and cut 1/4-inch squares in the flesh. Turn the cheek inside out and remove the fruit from the skin with a knife.

Serves: 4

Ingredients

1 cup chopped red or green bell peppers
1/2 cup minced onion
1/2 cup mango, seeded, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup pineapple tidbits
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 12-inch prepared pizza crust, purchased or made from a mix

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 F. Lightly coat a 12-inch round baking pan with cooking spray.

In a small bowl, mix together the peppers, onions, mango, pineapple, lime juice and cilantro. Set aside.

Roll out dough and press into the baking pan. Place in the oven and cook about 15 minutes.

Take the pizza crust out of the oven and spread with mango salsa. Place the pizza back into the oven and bake until the toppings are hot and the crust is browned, about 5 to 10 minutes.

Cut the pizza into 8 even slices and serve immediately.
