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!

It’s easier to add then take the way salt. 

We decided the 1/8 tsp was way too much, though that was the original recipe.

3-4 grains of salt on each tartlet is plenty.Guilt Free Intense Chocolate Tartlets 5Chill until the filling sets up; about 10-15 minutes. 

Top each tart with a spray of whipped cream just before serving.
