A Pizza Pie With Clean Ingredients Only
Each personal-sized pan pizza consists of gooey mozzarella cheese, rich marinara, and yummy veggies on a crispy, super thin crust. A flour tortilla acts as the “crust” in this pizza dish. Fortunately, the tortilla not only tastes delicious, but also shaves off a huge chunk of calories when compared to traditional pizza recipes. To lighten the dish up even further, sub in fat-free or low fat mozzarella for regular mozzarella.
Moreover, we’ve listed mushrooms and diced onions as our veggie options, but feel free to toss in your favorites! Sliced peppers, black olives, even diced pineapple make great add-ons! Listen to your taste buds.
Our Skillet Pizza Is Virtually Effortless
To make this healthy pizza recipe, get your ingredients ready to go, and heat your skillet. Add the tortilla, and allow it to cook for 2-3 minutes or until it’s toasted on both sides. As the second side gets crisp and toasty, spread the marinara and sprinkle the mozzarella on top. Afterwards, add your favorite assortment of toppings and allow the heated skillet to work its magic. When the cheese melts entirely, your personal skillet pizza is ready to go. Finally, a crave-worthy meal ready to eat in minutes!
