This Friday, give our healthy pizza a try.

The tough thing about staying healthy in this day and age is the amount of unhealthy foods available to us. Unhealthy eating has become a habit for many people. Foods are convenient and appealing, but they are destroying our health. Sadly, many people do not realize how unhealthy these foods can be for their bodies. They want food that is fast and easy, and in many cases they are actually addicted to the bad ingredients found in these foods. Salt and sugar and other chemicals get into our systems and leave us wanting more and more. No matter how much we eat, our bodies are always deprived and addicted to bad things.

The good news is you can eat your favorite foods without these negative consequences. This pizza is an example and so are our healthy fries and delicious burgers. Eating healthy does not require sacrifice and these recipes prove it!

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 small red onion, cut in half and then thinly sliced
  • 1 cup sliced bell peppers
  • 1 small zucchini, sliced
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce (Skinny Ms. recipe)
  • 1/2 cup diced sun-dried tomatoes, or 2 Roma tomatoes, sliced
  • 8 green olives, diced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup shredded skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 (10 or 12-inch) whole-wheat thin pizza crust

Directions

Preheat oven to 450°.

In a large skillet, add oil, and sauté on medium-low heat for 1 minute, the garlic, onion, bell peppers (if using the Balsamic Bell Pepper recipe, do not sauté with the other ingredients), and zucchini slices.

Spread sauce over the crust, leaving 1 inch around the edges dry. Evenly distribute onto crust the garlic, onion, bell peppers, zucchini, sun-dried tomatoes, olives, basil, and mozzarella cheese. Preferably, place pizza directly onto middle oven rack. Otherwise, place pizza on a large cooking stone or cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

    We tried this the other night and YUMMOOOOO!  Love the freshness!  I accidentally saute'ed the veggies a little too long, but I learned next time to go with the "raw look."  Still VERY tasty!  Might add fresh mushrooms next time!  🙂

    This looks great…love how you break down servings calories etc. Have a question..have you tried the flatout wraps as a pizza base? I think it would work. wonder about servings etc if I did so. Any advice on how to break that out would be great. Thanks

      Mary, Thank-you! Do you mean the tortilla wraps? I have, and they could hold up with all the ingredients.

        Thanks!! I guess they are a tortilla wrap but I have seen tomato an spinach versions of the brand..really like them for a hearty lunch about 90 calories a wrap. I am really trying to change my ways and eat clean and healthy…love your recipes..they are helping someone who loves to tear up the kitchen.

    This didn't come across to me as something I would like, but I'm always down to try new things and I loved it. Very delicious!

    I make a like this but I use Whole Wheat Tortillas as the crust. I also don't have to use the oven unless I'm making quit a few. I use my cast Iron skillet to make one side of the tortilla crispy with a little cooking spray, then turn it over and add my ingredients for the topping and put a lid on the skillet for the cheese to melt.

    My help tip: use cooking spray to sauté your veggies, you will save hundreds of calories.
