Guiltless Pizza

Guiltless Full Flavor Pizza
Pizza without the guilt, but all the flavor

I love a good piece of pizza BUT I do not like all the extra calories I have to work off.

So to the rescue is this pizza and it is sssooooo GOOD! So often the ‘low fat’ versions are – well – kinda icky.  But not this pizza.

Really, you can trust me on this one.  It’s not only low in fat, less calories, it’s figure friendly too, and best of all……dum, dum, dum….it actually fills you up!

Give it a try tonight.  Oh, and by the way, this skinny version pizza that’s packed full of flavor, is so quick and easy, you will make it often – I do!

  1. Carrie,

    We have pizza every Friday night usually. I am constantly trying new crust to help lower the calories. I will have to try pita bread I have not thought of trying it.
    Thanks so much for this great idea.
    Many blessings,
    Diane Roark
