Lets make a pizza..

      I make an 8" pizza that is valued at 3 weight watcher points.
      First, remember there are considerable carbs in the crust.  So, start with a thin crust.   Whole wheat crust or one with whole grain will provide more fiber.  If you want to increase the fiber, try adding some chia seeds to the dough when you "finger" dock it.  As an alternative, use armenian flat bread (delicious) - it is easy and convenient.  Top that with a low sodium tomato sauce made from low sodium tomato puree.  (You can do this yourself).  Include some fresh basil in the sauce along with some fresh garlic, oregano, and thyme.  Add a little cayenne for heat.  This will have some fiber, but not much but does have some lycopene which provides some antioxidant protection.
      Slice some fresh mozzarella balls on top of the sauce.  If you are watching fat grams, pay attention to the amount of cheese you use.  Add some fresh tomato slices, a sprinkle of sliced mushroom and tear some fresh basil on top.  Bake on a quarry tile or pizza stone to get the crust crisp.

    My favorite pizza has a homemade crust, with pesto sauce, crumbled feta cheese, sliced tomatoes and diced chicken breast.  I like to bake the crust first, add the other ingredients and Bake just enough to heat everything thoroughly.

    When my vegan daughter still lived with me, we would often have pizza without cheese or meat on it. I found that the absence of these enhanced the flavours of everything else. We used strips of pepper, mushrooms, onions, olives, capers, sometimes with smoked or marinaded tofu.

        nikki1posted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Hi fishing video.. there is a such thing as a nutritious pizza. Its also a good idea to eat a lot of salad with low calorie dressing before you eat some pizza. Also, consider eating dessert also before you eat a few (slices) of pizza. Just be careful of your ingredients.

    2. nikki1 profile image60
      nikki1posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Sounds great.. however, my friend. I would request you reconsider with the sausage, pepperoni, and the extra bacon. We are talking heart attack in motion here. Your heart will definiately be screaming. You may also want to avoid a serious case of HEARTBURN and INDIGESTION!!! PANCRETITUS,.  nOT A GOOD IDEA. my friend smile.

    hello, hmm healthy? i'd have to go with my veggie pizza! it consists of thin crust the healthyist you can find. with tomatoe paste or sause i would instead use light ranch or whatever dressing you like. the veggies i use are fresh brochly,carrots,califlower and cheese like low fat cheese. or you can go with a breakfast pizza that's healthy like wheat muffins, scrambled eggs, turkey bacon, cheese. but best of luck here. hope you have a blessed day

    Healthy? Crackerbread with a thin layer of pesto, shaved red onion or shallots, sun-dried tomatoes, a mixture of goat cheese and feta and some prosciutto. Pop it under the broiler for a few minutes and drizzle with some white truffle oil before serving.

    When the family orders pizza I make a salad with either no salad dressing or a VERY light dressing. Then I scrape the toppings, cheese and sauce from a slice of pizza on top of my salad. It is SO GOOD and one of my fave salads!
