I go online to check out the nutritional value of the pizza I plan to order so that I can work a few slices into my plan. I order from chain stores such as Papa Johns or Dominoes because they have thin crust as an option and they always have the same amounts of toppings so that the nutritional data should be more accurate than an independent pizza shop.
I also like to make pizza out of the flat out wrap , load it with veggies and sauce and either turkey pepperoni or another meat , just make sure you heat the bread before putting on the toppings or the bread is a little gooey. but way tasty for low calories.
We make pizza at home I love turkey pepperoni as a treat. It has nice flavour but a lot less fat compared to normal pepperoni.
I am going to try pizzas using the 100 calorie Arnold sandwich thins, tomato sauce, part skim mozzarella, turkey pepperoni (for the kiddo), slice of tomato, and mushrooms. Do you think it will all fit??? :-P
I've been using english muffin pizzas for a while as a healthy subsitute. Glad to hear I'm doing something right. Might try the whole wheat pita instead next time.
Also, a good solution is to do turkey pepperoni if you really want that pepperoni.
I am going home this evening and making a pizza with WW Wheat Pita Pocket Bread.
They are only a 100 calories a pocket and all the the veggies are free. Thanks for the great idea....
I just turned down an offer of pizza at work. (Was already eating my healthy lunch.) Nice to see that pizza isn't a no-no, but an be a healthy option!
Funny I made one of these tonight before even reading this so I was glad to see I did something right. Then it dunned on me I ate 5 1/2 slices of the ground turkey, veggie on wheat pizza...doh!
When I eat pizza, and it's not often, I ike extremely thin crusts. I love the crispy crunch and do not like heavy, doughy "bread" with a smattering of toppings.
Amber, this is funny!!! Just a few hours ago my hubby had a thin crust pizza. Doesn't tempt me because I told him it was just like pizza toppings on a cracker. Glad to see someone else sees it in the same light. (I have never been a pizza eater anyway.)
I can't stand "thin crust pizza" You call it pizza, I call it toppings on a cracker.
Pizza should be CHEWY not crunchy.
But chewy crust is so much higher in calories. Definitely not something I eat a lot, but oh so good. =)
I love pizza and have learned to make my own. I still buy frozen or pizza from our local pizzaria, too. It's a perfect meal to me! My favorite frozen pizzas are Wegman's brand italian classics varieties. They are low in sodium and taste fresh to me.
I recently saw how to make my own homemade frozen pizzas and will be doing that in the near future.
LOVE pizza night! My boyfriend makes the dough from scratch, I make the sauce, and we load it up with artichoke hearts, mushrooms, broccoli, and a few slices of smoked mozzarella. Super healthy and SO delicious!
I love making my own "gourmet" pita pizzas at home. They're nothing like dominoes, but they feel like a fancy unhealthy meal (for under 300 calories!)
