I’m a quarter Italian, so sometimes… I just need my pizza. Here, I have found a guilt free, low carb alternative to your favorite naughty Italian dish: pizza! Your taste buds will love this healthy personal sized crunchy creation. It’s important to never deprive yourself of what you really want, and this is proof that you can eat anything, as long as it’s properly portioned and balanced.


Light & Crispy Pizza

serves 1

½ whole-wheat pita pocket – cut long ways around the outer edges/perimeter
¼ cup reduced-fat shredded mozzarella
1 vine ripened tomato
1 cup spinach
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
½ Tbsp balsamic vinegar

Preheat over to 450 degrees. Cut the pita in half along the outer edges so that you have two full circles. Place ½ of the pita on a baking sheet (place the other half back in it’s packaging). Coat the pita evenly with olive oil. Bake in the oven for 3-5 minutes until the pita becomes slightly golden and crispy. Remove the pita from the oven. Slice the tomato and place slices over the surface of the pita. Sprinkle mozzarella on top of the tomatoes and place back in the oven. Bake for 5 more minutes or until the cheese starts to melt. Remove from oven, top with spinach, drizzle with balsamic, slice, and enjoy.

      Hi Jen,

      Sorry for being random but I couldn’t resist. If you want a quick and easy way to check calories in a recipe you can go to http://www.sparkrecipes.com/. They have a Recipe Calculator that is very helpful if you are ever curious on calories.

      Note to Catherine – Love, love, love the blog. I’m going to have to try this recipe out, looks right up my alley! Now if I can just convince my husband that meat is not required for every meal!! 😉

      Keep it up girl!

    I’ve been trying to eat healthier lately, so I was super excited to find this website today!

    I ran out to the grocery store, bought ingredients for several recipes and tried this one tonight. I don’t love tomatoes so I wasn’t sure how much I would enjoy this, but it’s AMAZING! I’m so excited to try out the other recipes too!
