Kansas girl heading to White House over pizza recipe

LENEXA, Kansas (KMBC) – Olivia Neely will be a fifth grader when school resumes in August at Lenexa’s Sunflower Elementary.

Olivia won the Healthy Lunchtime Challenge Contest, a program offered through the White House and championed by First Lady Michelle Obama.

It named a winner for each state and Olivia was chosen to represent Kansas for a recipe that makes pizza crust out of cauliflower.

Olivia said her family was notified by email a few days ago.

“I had some friends over and my mom couldn’t tell me because they were over,” she said. “But I was really happy and jumping up and down.”

She said her friends have asked her to say hello to the first lady for them.
