In my quest to lighten up some of my favorite flavors around here, I started toying with my Tomato Basil Pizza...
Now… most of the calories in my first pizza were caught up in the crust and cheese, so I switched my cheeses to low fat cheeses and/or reduced the amounts because I know that dairy assists me in weight loss and helps me feel fuller longer–so I didn’t want to cut it completely out… because let’s be honest… the cheese is what makes a pizza awesome anyhow… just sayin’
But the crust… my beloved crust… had to be sacrificed for this lunch time meal in honor of the all powerful dress zipper that simple must zip in a few weeks…
So instead, I took a low calorie soft taco shell and spread a little basil on it.
I then added some precooked chicken strips for some added protein… again, fuller longer.
I then sprinkled it with 1/8 cup of low fat cheese.
Next up Spinach… mama loves her spinach…
Then tomato slices that I then seasoned with salt and pepper.
Then I took 1 oz. of mozzarella and cut it into little pieces to place one small dab of cheese on each tomato.
While all this had been going on, I had been preheating my iron skillet in the broiler until it was uber-hot.
Then I placed my “Pizza” in the skillet and popped it into the broiler for 3 minutes.
Out it came… super crispy and uber-flavorful.
