And there you have a sweet pizza that is ready to be served! Sweet and pretty 🙂

Beet:

I love working with beet! Beet tastes sweet when it’s baked and will add some sweetness to your dish. Beet is full of purple pigments and will shed the pigment into whatever you are cooking! Yep, it will add beautiful color to your dish.

Beets have many great health benefits. It may help lower blood pressure, boost stamina (source of energy), fight inflammation, contains anti-cancer property, help support mental health, support detoxification and much more. It is rich in folate, manganese, potassium, copper etc. High in fiber and loaded with antioxidant.

Figs:

I love figs! The color, the taste, and the texture are absolutely perfect! If you aren’t into the seed texture like how kiwi or dragonfruit does, you won’t like the texture of figs.

Figs offer many great health benefits includes prevention of constipation, weight loss, lower cholesterol, prevention of coronary heart disease, colon cancer, and protein, protection against postmenopausal breast cancer, good for diabetic patients, prevention of hypertension, bronchitis, venereal disease, sexual dysfunction, strengthens bones, urinary calcium loss and the list goes on!
