By far pizzas are one of the most popular fast food choices in the USA and many other parts of the world as well. And for good reason to, they are available in most places that sell food and they also taste darn good! But the problem with pizza is that they are just full to the brim with calories. The problem I had when I started to take more notice about what I ate was that my main weakness was without a shadow of a doubt pizza. Back when I was a college student I would have pizza sometimes four nights a week! I knew that I was not going to be able to give up pizza. So when I feel I have earned a treat I will make myself this, while not 100 percent fat free pizza, but that is much better for you than the kind you can order in.
Way To Make A Tasty And Delicious Healthier Pizza
1: Purchase some flat bread from the store, make sure you buy the one that has the least amount of fat and calories in it. There are both thin and crispy and a more deep pan one available. In my experience the thin one is better for you, but if you can find a low calorie and low fat deep pan style flat bread, then get that.
2: Now get some nice, tasty and good for you chicken breast and throw that sucker on the grill. Pat down the chicken once it’s cooked to get that yucky grease of it. Then chop it up into pieces. How thin you chop it up really does not matter. I prefer smaller thin pieces of chicken breast to spread around, but if you like nice big chunk, then more power to you.
3: Now we add the sauce, you may think I am going to tell you to use some kind of low fat or natural tomato sauce, but I am not. Go for barbeque sauce. Yes I know it’s not the healthiest thing in the world, but you can get barbeque sauce that is low in fat and calories and it works amazingly well with the chicken breast. I know that using this may sound weird, but trust me it’s amazing and really does bring out the flavor of the chicken very well.
4: Now we already have our sauce and our main chicken breast topping to spread around the pizza, but also cut up some vegetables. For example things like the various different colors of bell peppers give it a nice little kick. Or add some onions or mushrooms. Now in theory you can load up as many of these as you want on your pizza, but for me I like the approach of less is more as the more extra toppings you have I find takes away from the flavor of the chicken breast.
5: Once you have put your chicken and your vegetables of choice onto your flat bread now you need to add some cheese. You want to get a light cheddar cheese, low fat, low calorie, you know the deal! Do not grate a whole ton, just a small amount to give your pizza a nice covering.
6: Slam the pizza in the oven and turn it up full and leave it in there for around 15 minutes. Keep checking on it so that you do not burn it.
