7 Point Margherita Pizza

April 3, 2012

I’m really excited to share with you the first recipe I’ve independently developed in tune with my healthy lifestyle. I came up with the idea for this the other day when I realized how many points a delivery pizza can contain. Wowza! Up to 13 Points a slice! The frozen California Pizza Kitchen brand margherita pizza for one personal pizza will cost you eleven points.

These cute little pizzas are way bigger than a slice of large pizza and have a clean, fresh taste. Add a wonderful spring mix salad with yummy greens and fat-free italian dressing for one more point to make it a filling meal. All of these ingredients can be found in your pantry… but the best part of this recipe? It’s a ten minute meal!

Yummy! Now for the super simple recipe.

Ingredients

Olive Oil 100% Olive Oil Cooking Spray (I use Crisco) (1 Point per teaspoon- and one teaspoon is generous here!)

1 Mission Carb Balance 8 inch Tortilla (2 Pts +)

1/2 Cup Reduced Fat Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (4 Pts+)

1 Small thinly sliced tomato, pressed of extra juices between paper towels (0 Pts+)

2-3 Basil Leaves, Chiffonaded (0 Points +) (Dried is fine, I had to use it because my fresh basil went bad)

Salt (0 Pts +)

Pepper (0 Pts +)

Optional: A light sprinkle of garlic powder

Instructions

1. Preheat an empty 9 inch nonstick fry pan on medium heat until your hand feels hot when held two inches over the surface.

2. Place the torilla in the skillet. Spray top of tortilla only with Olive Oil Spray. If you’re using garlic powder, add it after the olive oil spray. Spread cheese evenly over top. Season very lightly with salt and pepper, Lay tomato slices evenly over the top of the pizza.

3. Heat in skillet until mozzarella is melted and the tortilla is golden brown on the bottom.

4. Remove Pizza from skillet with a spatula and sprinkle the fresh or dried basil evenly over the pizza. You’re ready to eat!
