If you are short on time and want to throw a pizza in the oven, try one of Kashi's thin crust pizzas. One-third of a pizza has 250 calories, 4g sat fat, 4g fiber, and 14 g protein. Make a nice salad to go with it and you have a terrific tasting light supper.
I use Flat Out flatbread. The light variety is 90 calories, and they are huge! It tastes just like thin crust. You can get them in different flavors too if you want to add some pizzaz. The Italian Herb flatbread is still only 90 calories, and that one's my fave.
I use Don Marcos FF tortillas, they are 60 calories for one.
If you're carb conscious trying using the "Flatout" flat bread! instead of regular tortilla. It's fantastic! only 4-6 carbs each!
Our resort had a Pizza Party this past week and DH and I attended. He ate pizza and I took a big salad for myself. I wasn't raised on pizza and can take it or leave it. If I had my choice it would be white pizza with spinach, but they weren't serving it.
I'm very excited to try this! I'm definitely a pizza FANATIC and I'm super excited to find a healthy take on it!! ;-) Thanks for the idea!!!
My family LOVES pizza and my husband and I like to make our own. We load them with green and black olives, onion, all kinds of peppers, and lots of mushrooms. We really limit the cheese we add to the top, and find this pizza isn't much different than the "loaded" kind we used to like to eat. My kids don't mind the veggies, so we're very lucky!
Greetings Becky....it was always a fun family thing we did together. Make a pizza pie! Wasn't the healthest though! I'd like to try it again, and will. One other thing......The natural pizzas that Pizza Hut offers...is it really a good healthy choice?
I wonder is white sauce pizza better. When I have eaten it recently I get white sauce instead of the red.
Becky - you are an absolutely fabulous, creative dietician. Thanks so much for ALL your articles! You've got me thinking, too - I make homemade pizza fairly often and might add a little ground flax seed to my dough... thanks! - Sara
Great article. My family has been trying to make homemade pizzas more often. This article gave me some good tips.
Pizza is suppose to be one of those foods everyone goes ape over and can't resist...............I don't care for pizza, my daughter-in-law could eat it 24 hours a day, my son has grown to hate it, my husband doesn't like it unless it is homemade.
I find most take out pizza was always greasy and had more puffy crust than anything.
Growing up in the country I wasn't raised on take out, only a home made one rarely so a greasy, gooey mess on a big slab of dough didn't have much appeal.
Making a home made thin crust one with my own fixins is good every once in a while but not very often..........can't remember the last time I ate pizza!!!
TUESDAYS, here's that link to the Spinach Feta Pizza: http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-deta
