Weekly Challenge

This week our weekly challenge for Amy's 15 Week Challenge was to recreate an "unhealthy" meal in a healthier way. I chose to do pizza... because I love pizza. And I don't get to eat it too often anymore

I used:
-Trader Joe's frozen Naan (one piece of naan makes a pretty decent sized slice of pizza).
-Trader Joe's marinara sauce (though I'm sure you could use whatever sauce you like).
-Assorted veggies. (I had mushrooms, green peppers and banana peppers on mine).
-Low-fat shredded mozzarella cheese.

Just build your slice, pop it in the oven at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes and there ya go.

(Please excuse my crappy picture. Took it with my phone.)

They are darn tasty!!! Usually I eat mine with a side salad and one slice of pizza and it totally fills me up. Depending on what sauce, cheese and veggies you use... one large slice is around 200-250 calories. Even the Boyfriend liked it!

I get green with envy when people talk about Trader Joe's and Whole Foods. Neither are anywhere close to me.

Looks yummy! That was a great challenge idea.
