Raise your hand if pizza has ever been the root cause of a diet crash and burn? I have yet to meet someone who can resist a slice without serious difficulty and a little drool. So let’s talk about having your pizza and eating it too. Instead of a carb-loaded, fat-saturated pie, make something just as satisfying and delicious without so much junk!
Here is how you make the crust:
Buy your favorite soft, flour tortilla. My favorite is Santa Fe brand Whole Grain and Flax (Sam’s Club) but you can use whatever kind you like. Lightly spray a skillet with non-stick spray and heat on medium. Cook the tortilla until stiff on each side. It shouldn’t fold when you pick it up with a spatula. Place tortilla on a cooking stone/sheet. Spoon tomato sauce on tortilla and top with toppings. Broil until toppings are warmed. Slice with a pizza cutter and enjoy!
