Pizza For The Birds

By Laura Doering
Join in on Laura's fun and experiences of bird ownership, and share in her adventures as the editor of BIRD TALK, the world’s most widely read pet bird magazine, in Wayward Feathers.

The "Birdie Pizza" is a healthy alternative to take-out pizza.

For the September 2009 issue of BIRD TALK, we had to come up with a healthy, bird-friendly pizza recipe; an alternative to the standard pizza some of us find a hard time trying to sneak by our parrots without them squawking in protest (like my Amazon did at the site of a pizza box).

We decided on an alternative crust (sweet potato!) and sans sauce and cheese pizza. Putting together the ingredients was the easy part, assigning the actual preparation and creation to associate editor Jessica was also easy, at least for me. (I am still traumatized by my attempt to make pizza from a store-bought pizza crust. It said all you had to do was roll out the pizza crust, top and bake. Well, I couldn’t find the corner to unroll it, and before I knew it, I was in a “I Love Lucy” type cooking situation, with a balled up “ready made” pizza crust I couldn’t roll out.)

Jessica came in to the office the next day like a proud momma. It looked homemade, but in a good way, and it was also her ultra-healthy lunch. Not bad for bird food.

I'm not buying the "Squawking in Protest" line. My Blue & Gold desperately wanted to get into my pizza. There is actually news footage from a pet fair of my Macaw going after my lunch. It made it really hard to eat with my ear getting pulled every time I took a bite.
