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.
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.
