Delish AND healthy – I can't ask for more. I've always made pizzas at home on traditional crusts, pita bread, even english muffins. For some reason though, it never occurred to me to try it on a tortilla until it was recently suggested to me. I love that the cracker-thin crust gets super crispy, and with so many less carbs and calories in the crust, you can pile on all your fave toppings without any of the guilt.
The pizza show above here, with a little pizza sauce, fresh baby spinach, artichoke hearts, black olives, feta, and a sprinkling of shredded mozzarella has about 350 calories. I'm not typically a counter, but recently I've been determined to take a turn for the positive and REALLY shed the same 10-12 pounds that I have gained and lost (and gained again) since my mid-college days. To do this, I've become obsessed with LIVESTRONG (formerly The Daily Plate) as a way to track what types of workouts I'm logging and keeping an eye on my portions and overall calories, proteins, carbs, etc. I don't want to do this forever, but it is a fabulous tool for now, in the beginning, as I begin to grasp again the concept of how much is enough (or too much) as I try and get back on track for a healthy lifestyle that can truly last long after the weight has dropped off again. In these beginning weeks I have to be a bit more strict with myself, but ultimately the goal is just to find the healthy balance and maintain.
Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend – we certainly did. Lots of good times with good friends that we don't see nearly often enough. Pics to come later this week.
