Fit by 40 - Vege Pizza

Three weeks into my Fit by 40 program, I have lost a total of six pounds. Right on target for my goal of 1.5 pounds a week. As I develop my daily menus, I keep in mind the following: Calories, fiber, vegetable/fruit servings, flavor, and how full will I feel after the meal. About once or twice a week I have been making Vege Pizzas. The key to these pizzas are the whole grain tortillas, only 100 calories and five grams of fiber! The other key ingredient, a flavorful olive…I used Kalamata for this recipe.

Ingredients to make two Vege Pizza Tortillas

  • 2 Whole grain flour tortilla
  • 6 Flavorful Olives chopped
  • 1 cup Broccoli
  • 1 tomato Fresh Tomato slices
  • 3 Roasted red/yellow peppers sliced
  • 1/2 cup Organic red sauce (look for low sugar sauce)
  • 1/8 cup hard cheese grated (parmesan)

I usually eat two of these pizzas, which I equal around 400 calories.

  • Oven temperature: 375
  • Pre-cook the tortillas for 5 minutes until they are a bit crisp
  • Spread sauce, vegetables, and top with cheese
  • Place back in oven until cheese is melted
  • Enjoy every flavorful bite!
