Healthy Homemade Pizza

I rarely post recipes because I’m not much of a cook and I mostly make healthy, easy, quick recipes that most people already know how to make.

Big Jon & I were planning to head to Atlantic Station tonight to eat @ California Pizza Kitchen, but we didn’t get home till late so our dinner plans were kinda ruined.  I decided to make pizza at home instead, since we already had all the ingredients.

Since the hubby & I both love pizza, I decided to try to figure out a way to make it a healthier option so we can enjoy it more often.  Here’s the low calorie, high fiber, veggie filled recipe I came up with:

low-carb whole grain tortillas

organic pizza sauce

low-fat, part skim mozerella

lowfat cottage cheese (I promise it’s good!)

tons of veggies- spinach, mushrooms, green peppers, broccoli, asparagus, whatever we have in the frig at the time!

Bake for about 7 minutes @ 400. Quick, easy clean-up, & yummy!!  I bet it’s something kids would enjoy helping out with too.

Happy Tuesday, my friends!!

I LOVE making our own pizzas. Another tip - whole wheat pocketless pitas work great for the pizza crust because they're not as thin/flimsy as tortillas. Your pizzas look delicious!
