What is better than pizza? Warm, cheesy, comforting. It is one of my favorite indulgences. But, let’s be honest. Pizza, especially from a restaurant or frozen from the store, is typically calorie-heavy with more fat per serving then you would probably like. An easy solution? Make your own! Use whole-wheat flat breads or Naans for a perfectly portioned pizza that you can top with your own favorite toppings. Why not give it a healthy twist? Use hummus instead of pizza sauce. Top with veggies rather than pepperoni. The possibilities are endless, and no mater how you choose to top it, you know you were the one who made it and what exactly is on it. Another bonus… it is very cheap to make, quick if you are short on time or don’t feel like cooking a huge meal, and easy!
I made pizza for dinner tonight! Here is a recipe for my skinny broccoli feta pizza. Enjoy the cheesy goodness 🙂
- 1, 6″ whole-wheat flat bread, thick tortilla, or Naan
- 2 Tbsp sun-dried tomato basil hummus
- 1/2 cup cooked broccoli
- 2 Tbsp crumbled feta cheese
- sprinkle of low-moisture part-skim mozzarella cheese
- black pepper, dried basil, garlic powder
Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees. Put your broccoli in the microwave with a little bit of water for 1-2 minutes to soften. Dry off broccoli with a paper towel. Top your flat bread with a thin layer of hummus. Add your broccoli and sprinkle your seasonings on top (however much you may like). Lastly, finish off your pizza by topping it with cheese. No need to over-do it; feta is salty and packs a big taste in a little amount, and the mozzarella is just for a little extra cheesiness. Place in oven for 5-8 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the bread is crisp on the bottom. Slice and enjoy!
*The best part about this pizza; you can eat the entire thing for about the same amount of calories as a slice from a restaurant or the store!
