With altering my lifestyle and diet, I’m learning to be a bit more creative with what I’m making for lunch and dinner in order to stay in line with the calories I’m allotted for the day. I’m happy to cut the cals, but I still need some flavor. So, my mom used to make my sisters and I these little bagel pizzas when I was little for a quick and yummy dinner. So I took that idea and just altered it a bit.
Yum yum yum yum.
The prep on these little discs of heaven is next to nothing and you’ll be eating them a lot sooner than the time it would take to order your own pizza. And 1/4 the calories. Try and beat that. I dare ya.
Anyway, the recipe is below. And the best part is that it’s customizable to anything you enjoy on your pizzas. Calories permitting, of course.
4 whole wheat english muffins
1 cup organic, natural pizza sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Sliced green olives, optional
Preheat oven to 400*. Separate english muffins into halves evenly on a baking sheet. Then, place the english muffins in the oven for 5-6 minutes and toast them to your liking. I like them a bit crispy to really resemble pizza crust. While the muffins are toasting, heat up your pizza sauce over medium heat on the stove top. Once muffins are done toasting, remove them from the oven and turn your oven up to Broil.
While the oven is heating further, evenly spread a spoonful of heated pizza sauce atop each muffin. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the sauce and then add your toppings. I used turkey pepperonis and green olives. I add a smidge (technical term) more cheese on top just to have it melt over the toppings a little. Once the oven is fully heated place the small little pizzas in the oven.
Take them out once the cheese is melted and enjoy! I love how creative you can be with each one and especially how low calorie they are!
2 of the discs are 180 calories.
So easy and so delicious!
