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.
Green peppers or red peppers
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.

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 teaspoons unsalted butter
1 medium shallot, minced
2 tablespoons white-wine vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped pecans, toasted

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.
