Noah's Healthy Pizza

My healthy recipe is my favorite food, pizza. I like to pride myself on trying to making healthy alternatives to some foods that naturally are not so healthy. One way to do this with pizza is to purchase some whole-wheat tortillas, or high fiber flat bread. Then spread pizza or barbecue sauce next you will use the 2% mozzarella shredded cheese and top with your selection of low fat topping.

Some options:
Chicken breast
Turkey pepperoni
Turkey sausage
Green peppers or red peppers
Onions
Jalapeños
Or any veggie

Sometimes I like to sprinkle a little oregano or low-fat parmesan cheese on top.

They usually will cook in 10-15 minutes at 350°F in the oven depending on the topping and how crispy you like your crust. You will want to keep a close on eye on it the 1st few times.

Pacific Sole with Oranges and Pecans

1 orange
10 ounces Pacific sole or tilapia fillets
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 teaspoons unsalted butter
1 medium shallot, minced
2 tablespoons white-wine vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped pecans, toasted
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill

Using a sharp paring knife, remove the skin and white pith from orange. Hold the fruit over a medium bowl and cut between the membranes to release individual orange sections into the bowl, collecting any juice as well. Discard membranes, pith and skin.

Sprinkle both sides of fillets with salt and pepper. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Add the fillets and cook 1 minute for sole or 3 minutes for tilapia. Gently flip and cook until the fish is opaque in the center and just cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes for sole or 3 to 5 minutes for tilapia. Divide between 2 serving plates; tent with foil to keep warm.

Add butter to the pan and melt over medium heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring, until soft, about 30 seconds. Add vinegar and the orange sections and juice; loosen any browned bits on the bottom of the pan and cook for 30 seconds. Spoon the sauce over the fish and sprinkle each portion with pecans and dill. Serve immediately.

Makes 2 servings.
