Is there really such a thing? Healthy Pizza? YES and it even tastes good!
This is the recipie I used from Bobby Flay:
and your can check the video out too!
I substituted 2 cups of the white flour for 2 cups of cups of a whole multigrain. I grind my own mix, but you can use whole wheat or any whole grain flour you have on hand. I added an additional 2 TSP of olive oil, 1/2 tsp salt and 1tsp honey ( is also use honey instead of sugar)
For topping I used
Lots of spinach
4 sliced tomatoes
1/2 lb of sliced mushrooms -steamed sauted
1 chicken breast
1/4 cup shredded Manchego cheese
I drizzled a little more olive oil over the top, salt and pepper and onion powder ( normally I love lots of fresh sliced onions , but we were out)!
I cook my pizzas on my ancient pampered chef cooking stone at 400 degrees.
I cut the pizza into 8 pieces. Plenty for two dinners and Steve's lunch tomorrow.
Cost $ 5.90
$1.96 per meal per person.
Last week we paid $22.00 for a large local pizza and honestly mine was better.
I came to a rough count of calories to be about 380 per meal. The flour is the heavyweight here calorie wise. Using the whole grain mix, I added fiber and protein and raised the glycemic index a bit. This pizza had a thin crispy crust
The great thing about eating whole grains, you get fuller much faster and you don't have that awful bloated, food coma feeling afterward!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you give this a try, it is delicious and fun to make!
