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!




Guiltless Full Flavor Pizza

Ingredients:

Pita Bread, whole wheat or white

Your favorite pizza sauce

1 slice smoked provolone cheese per pizza or string cheese (the string cheese does NOT melt as well and was the same points in WW as the slice of smoked provolone,- I preferred the provolone)

    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
