Some weekends all I want to eat is pizza, but it isn't always easy to find a healthy pizza option since most finds are full of fat and calories. Luckily there is a way to enjoy delicious pizza without all the calories and even a couple of low carb options for those of you following a low carb diet. What are your favorite healthier pizza recipes and options?
I share these two recipes in lots of Friday Five posts because they are something I eat almost every week. They are low in carbs, calories, and points which make them the perfect snack or meal. You can mix up the toppings and make a bunch on Sunday to have on-the-go during the week.
This mini pizza puff is essentially a muffin and pizza in one. With all the great flavors of pizza in the convenience of a muffin, they make a great snack or appetizer for any get together. Add your favorite flavors, my favorite is the sweet and spicy combo in the linked recipe.
If you decide to go the take out route, reach for a thin slice pizza with low calorie toppings like veggies, ham, pineapple, or Canadian bacon. The thin crust cuts about 100 calories per slice and makes it a much more diet/healthy living friendly meal.
This deep dish pizza casserole from the wonderful Emily, over at Emily Bites, is delicious and will surely satisfy any deep dish pizza craving. Her version with ground beef and mushrooms is sure to please any pizza loving crowd.
