Sometimes you just need a pizza fix, you know? I have a love-hate relationship with pizza. I love pizza. But I hate that it’s so fattening. So… what’s a girl (or guy—we’re equal opportunity here at Confessions of a Former Couch Potato) to do?
Friends, I have got your answer: Crispy Mini Pizzas… Crispy Mini Margherita Pizzas, to be exact.
Doesn’t that look delicious? I promise, it’s light, crispy, and a delicious blend of flavors. Oh, and did I mention that it takes about 5 minutes to make?
- small tortillas (I used Mission Carb Balance Whole Wheat Tortillas—they are only 80 calories!)
- roma tomatoes, sliced thinly
- 1/2 cup low-fat shredded mozzarella
- 3-4 large fresh basil leaves, sliced thinly
- cooking spray
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray. Lay tortillas on the baking sheet. Bake for about 3 minutes, just until the crisp up a little. Remove from oven. Spread a light layer of cheese over both tortillas. Then lay tomato slices and basil on top. Top with the rest of the cheese. Pop them back in the oven for 2-3 more minutes, just until the cheese melts.
These will be crispy and light, and oh-so-delicious.
So there you go… pizza without the guilt! Dare I even say they are GOOD for you???
