How to make pizza low fat - Thin crust recipe

Pizza is one of my favorite foods, and the thought of not being able to eat pizza was a very difficult idea for me to accept while dieting. I went in search for healthy options, and not many existed. For a while I used a thin crust wheat pizza which was a great replacement, but then one day on a whim I tried a tortilla. What do you know, it was better. 

For 6 grams of fat you can have a delicious veggie pizza. Comprised of 1.5 grams in the tortilla, and 4.5 grams in the light mozzarella cheese. You can lower your fat intake even more by going with Cabot 75 cheddar in lieu of the mozzarella and save an addition 2.5 grams of fat per serving.

Adding additional toppings like black olives, or turkey pepperoni does add additional fat and calories, but if you can't live without them, this is still a much better alternative than your grocer's freezer section offerings.

My spouse makes a low-fat Canadian bacon and pineapple version and loves that the tortillas actually crisp and harden in the oven to form a cracker-like thin crust.


QUICK FACTS:
  • The city of Naples, Italy gave birth to the pizza.
  • The average Italian consumes 26 gallons of wine a year and half a pound of bread a day.
