Healthy pizza?

Pinterest

Dear Diary,

After reading Jackie’s post about her amazing adventures in Italy and seeing her mouth watering photos of pizza, I had to have some. Like that second. I’ve always had the mentality that if you’re craving something, your body must need it in some way. Right?! Okay, okay, even if you don’t need it per se, I feel like by not depriving yourself of it you’re not going to go overboard later on. Moderation people! So in an effort to keep myself in check I told my sweetheart that we were having pizza for dinner. Homemade pizza!

Need:

*Trader Joe’s fat free pizza sauce

*Whole wheat pizza dough

*Shredded mozzarella cheese

*Healthy toppings – (Ours included brussel sprouts, onions, green & yellow peppers)

Spread a thin layer of sauce on the crust.

Sauté your healthy toppings. Ours included brussel sprouts, onions, yellow & green peppers. Mmm mmm delicious!

Spread your toppings on top of a thin layer of mozzarella cheese.

{Mozzarella cheese is naturally lower in fat than other cheeses! One low-fat mozzarella stick has only 80 calories and provides 7 grams of protein and 222 mg of calcium.}

Bake at 450 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until crust looks crispy and golden brown.

Alright, alright… it’s no Italy, but a girl can dream!

PS. I clearly didn’t wait to devour it, hence this shot of the last couple slices.
