Low Carb No Guilt Tortilla Pizza Plus Video

I know all too well how hard a diet is to stick with. After 5 months, I decided I needed to eat some of my favorite foods again. I worked so hard to get down to my goal weight and don't want to start climbing back up to ruin my accomplishments. So here is a no guilt pizza, crisp light, low calories unless you choose to add more, it's your call!

Even my husband who isn't as faithful to a diet as I,
was sure pleased with this tasty thin crust pizza,
 with no guilt here, he loved this one!
Oh course if you love thick oily crust with everything on it, not dieting,  this recipe isn't for you ..... so here it goes.
  Without pepperoni it's only around 125 calories and you can add as many vegetables to the top as you want
 with no additional points on weight watchers!

Low carb Flour Tortilla (5 carb) found on the shelves in the Mexican isle of your supermarket, you may even find them less!
Homemade or bottled sauce 2 or 3 tablespoons for each tortilla pizza
Lowfat shredded mozzarella cheese
optional: fresh or dried parsley, basil, oregano, cayenne pepper and garlic powder
Low fat topping suggestions: chopped peppers, broccoli, spinach, eggplant, mushrooms, olives, turkey pepperoni, sliced tomatoes, grated zucchini, baby shrimps

For White Pizza:
Low fat mozzarella
fat free ricotta cheese two to three tablespoons
2 teaspoons fresh minced garlic
fresh parsley chopped
fresh basil chopped
salt, pepper to taste
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil

Place a tortilla an oil sprayed piece of parchment paper or foil lined cookie sheet.  Top with above suggestions starting with sauce, then vegetables or meat of choice then cheese. Sprinkle the cheese with herbs or spices desired.

For White Pizza: start with tortilla,  spread a light coating of ricotta, sprinkle on the salt, pepper garlic and herbs on top, mozzarella and drizzle with olive oil.  Bake as directed below.

 Bake on a preheated hot oven of 400 degrees until the edges are dark brown but not burnt. This takes approximately 15 minutes but watch it, depending on the tortilla some cook faster. Transfer onto a plate, cool a few minutes as these get really hot!
Enjoy!
