Pizza Makeover

Tonight I experimented with one of my biggest weaknesses in the food battle – pizza.  It’s extremely difficult for me to turn down a slice or two or three of good pizza.  It’s impossible for me to just eat ONE slice and that is a bad thing considering pizza is not exactly low cal and good for you. 
Tonight’s pizza worked out VERY well in satisfying that pizzeria goodness.  This little experiment was filling and tasty!  A side salad makes it a complete meal.
1 Flat Out Fold-it Flat bread
3 Tbsp. spaghetti sauce
¼ cup of shredded part-skim mozzarella
8 slices of turkey pepperoni, halved
Chopped onions
Sliced mushrooms
What to do-
Preheat oven or toaster oven to 375 degrees.
Place the flatbread on a wire rack.  Layer with the remaining ingredients: spread sauce on the surface of the flatbread.  Add onions, mushrooms then cheese and finish topping with pepperoni.
Bake for about ten minutes or until desired level of doneness is achieved.

This is also good on whole grain sub rolls. There's also a pizza sauce in a can that's really good and low cal.

Thanks Shannon. The sauce I used added quite a bit of calories. I'll have to try that one next time!
