PIZZA!!

Does the word scare you?  Healthy Pizza?  Yes, its possible.  Here is a recipe Id like you to try:

Make your own sauce first, its healthier! 

Ingredients:

  • 3 or 4 Rome tomatoes
  • 4 or 5 cloves of garlic
  • 1 small onion
  • Italian seasoning (1 or 2 Tbsp depending on taste)
  • small can tomato paste
  • dash of salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • whole wheat tortilla or whole wheat pita bread (not pocket style though)
  • 8oz package part skim mozzerella or Italian blend cheese (you can use fat free as well but it will be rubbery!)
  • any veggie toppings you desire, such as onions, mushrooms, bell peppers, etc.

In a blender, mix the tomatoes, garlic and onion.  In a medium sauce pan heat oil and add mixture.  Wait until it bubbles and add the seasoning and tomato paste.  Stir well.  Add about 1/2c water and bring to a boil and then back down to a simmer for about an hour.

Set aside when complete.

On an oven baking dish or pizza rack, flatten out your pita or tortilla bread. Generously spread your homemade sauce, sprink some cheese (the more cheese the tastier but also more fattening!), and then your veggies.  You can also do a layer of cheese, a layer of veggies and then another layer of cheese.

Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.

ENJOY IT!  You deserve it!
PS: Ive made my own crust using Flechman’s yeast using whole wheat flour and it also came out wonderful, but a bit time consuming.  If youre interested in that, go for it, the direction of how to make the pizza crust is on the yeast package.
