Looking for a Healthier Pizza???

grilled_caprese_naan_pizza_recipeRaise 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!

Toppings Ideas:

Hawaiian: Canadian bacon (ham), pineapple, green onion, reduced-fat cheddar

Mediterranean:  shredded chicken, sun-dried tomato, spinach, low-fat feta

Texas: shredded BBQ chicken, thin-sliced red onion, thin-sliced yellow peppers, reduced-fat cheddar
