Sauce-less [potentially cheese-less] Skinny Pizza

tpizza1

Pizza is my all-time favorite food! (I think I’ve said that once or twice!) The best pizza, in my option, is full of gluten and cheese! Yes, I admit it. But I will also admit I do not consume that kind of pizza regularly- it is very rare! This version does not have those “bad” things- well, if you exclude the feta cheese that is (which you can!). But if you are a non-vegan, feta is actually one of the better cheeses to eat (find out why here). Besides,  I only used feta on half of my pizza and both halves were equally delicious.

I had to figure out a way to enjoy pizza with all “bad” things eliminated and half the carb. Here it is! My Sauce-less [potentially cheese-less] Skinny Pizza!  It’s so deliciously nutritious and you won’t even know it. And yes, I have this way more often than “regular” pizza. I take my last bite with a smile rather than a frown as I unbutton my pants from being so bloated! So here’s to not bloating and guilt-free tasty pizza. Cheers!

Serving Size: Makes 1 pizza.

Ingredients

  • 1 brown Rice tortilla

 Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit. Rub the garlic clove on the tortilla to give it a garlicky flavor.
