Keep the flavor, but cut the calories! It’s not hard to score big points with your family by lightening up your favorite pizza recipe bit, while keeping the flavor. Here are a few ideas too keep you on track with your healthy diet.

Flatbread Veggie Explosion Pizza

3/4 cup green, red or yellow peppers, sliced in thin strips

1 teaspoon olive oil

1/3 cup of sliced mushrooms

1/3 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half

1 flatbread

1/4 can of pizza sauce

1 cup baby spinach

Fresh basil, washed and ribbon cut

Approximately 4 ounces low-fat mozzarella cheese

Sauté the peppers and olive oil in a non-stick pan on medium heat until they are slightly soft, about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms to the pan, and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Add the cherry tomatoes and cook for 5 more minutes, lightly tossing everything. While the veggies are cooking, place the flatbread on a cooking sheet or pizza baking pan. Cover with the pizza sauce. Add the cooked veggies, being careful to drain any liquid that has accumulated in the pan while cooking. Add spinach and basil to the top. Add cheese to the top. Bake at 400 degrees in the oven for approximately 15 minutes or until crust is crisp and cheese is melted (or grill on lowest setting). Cut into squares and enjoy! 1 pizza equals 3 servings
