Have Your Pie and Eat It Too: A Lighter Pizza Recipe

Pizza! A delicious indulgence... The very word conjures up images of melty cheese, gooey sauce, and all the deliciousness that comes with it. But for those of us trying to eat a bit healthier, the traditional pizza crust can feel a bit...well, doughy.

I got you, pizza lovers! There's a lighter, crispier alternative lurking in the bread aisle: flatbread. Try the tasty recipe below with flatbread or lavash bread and enjoy pizza night guilt free!


1 flat out lite italian wrap, or lavash bread

1/4-1/3 cup low sugar pasta sauce, marinara, or pizza sauce

2oz park skim mozzarella

1oz turkey pepperoni

1 slice of prosciutto (optional but delish!)

Any additional veggie toppings you'd like

Italian seasoning and crushed red pepper

flatbread package

package of flatbread

Directions: 1. Broil the Flat Out wrap or lavash bread in the oven for 1-2 min per side (watch it because it will burn QUICK)  this makes the crust slightly crunchy and able to be eaten with your hands. 

2. After the crust in toasted, add the sauce, any veggies you want, cheese, and turkey pepperoni, prosciutto and place back in the oven on broil for another 1-2 min or so (watch it so it doesn't burn!)

3. Cut into slices and enjoy!
