When you think of New York food, you most likely think of pizza..and bagels! Sure, they are both delicious, but what happens when you combine them together? The best ever, occasional dog friendly treat!
Go to any health food store in your area, and you can most likely find gluten-free bagels. Now, we know New York bagels are the best, but for dogs, we like to recommend a gluten-free variety. Since bagels are high in calories, please limit this as an occasional treat. We think it is best before a strenuous hike, as it will give your dog some necessary calories for top performance.
This may be one of our easiest recipes ever, but we can guarantee that when you make one for your dog, you are going to make one for yourself too!
New York, Dog-Friendly Pizza Bagel
One gluten-free bagel, plain
One slice of low-fat, mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons organic, crushed tomatoes, no salt added
Any other dog friendly topping such as cooked, crumbled lean beef, cooked chicken breast or cooked sweet potatoes
Sprinkling of oregano
Sprinkling of olive oil
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a non-stick cookie sheet with cooking spray. Slice bagel in half. Save one half for a later treat. Top sliced bagel half with tomatoes, cheese, toppings and sprinkle with oregano and olive oil. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool completely before serving to your dog. Refrigerate unused portions for up to 3 days in an airtight container.
