Ingredients

  • 1 low-carb whole wheat tortilla
  • 2 1/2 Tablespoons pizza sauce
  • 1/4 Cup low fat mozzarella cheese
  • 3 slices of pepperoni
  • 1/4 Cup fresh spinach

Directions

Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce on the tortilla. Layer the tortilla with your toppings and cheese.

Cut into three or four manageable pieces. Eat right away or save for later to enjoy a delicious pizza snack.

Pizza Shopping Tip

Pressed for time on a busy weeknight, but don't want to settle for frozen pizza? Start with ready-made pizza crusts. You'll still be able to add your own sauce and fresh ingredients for a homemade taste.

Pizza Cooking Tip

If you're attempting to make your own dough, make sure to keep your work surface lightly dusted with flour, or the dough may stick.

Pizza Wine Pairing
