As of today, I am trying to
step up start my quest to get healthy. Using the word “quest” just makes it all seem so much more fun and exciting.
Anyhow, as I do this, it will mean less trips to McDonald’s and more creative recipe ideas! For lunch today I used “sandwich rounds” (which are basically like mini breads) to make mini pizzas! What’s great about individual pizzas is that you can create them especially for whoever would like one or what you have sitting in your refrigerator.
I made mine with just a little pizza sauce, a little bit of “Italian Mix” Cheese, and some bell peppers. The Pizza sauce and cheese may not be all that healthy, but really you don’t have to use more than a spoonful on these tiny pizzas… and the cheese really isn’t bad for you in small quantities, especially when you’re like me and don’t have enough calcium as it is.
You can get so creative with toppings here!
Just add whatever you want to your cute little mini-pizza, pop in the toaster oven on broil for a few minutes, and presto! A delicious mini pizza for lunch! Depending on what you put on it, it’ll probably be less than 300 calories. Season to taste. Add your favorite fruit to the plate, and wah-la.
Yummy, easy, and something blessedly different than a sandwich with baked chips or a salad!
