WHOLE WHEAT TORTILLA PIZZA
We have been trying to reduce or cut down carbs totally during dinner for sometime now. This is a big challenge for me and I go into the carb-craving zone in one day, so I have been alternating with low-carb and no-carb dinner every evening. Some evenings, we just have a bowl of salad with legumes or beans or soup etc. Some days its is something with wheat rava upma with vegetables, wheat dosa, chapathis etc. The wheat tortilla that I have used here is low-carb tortilla and it has only 10 grams of carbohydrates per tortilla. The same pizza can be tried on any kinds of rotis or naans too. This was a winner in our house, my kids loved it. For the kids I did not add any veggies, since they like only cheese pizza.
1. Whole wheat tortilla, 2. Even rotis or chapathis, naans, bread can be used here.
2. Marinara sauce or pasta sauce, 1/2 cup.
3. Vegetables like bell peppers, onions, mushrooms etc. thinly sliced. Chicken or any other protein can also be included.
4. Shredded mozzarella cheese., combination of cheeses like 3 or 5 cheese blends.. I have use weight watchers' cheese here.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Spray oil or rub oil on the baking pan and place the tortillas on the pan. Spread the sauce evenly on the tortilla and arrange the sliced vegetables on top of the sauce. Sprinkle the shredded cheese evenly over the pizza and bake the pizza for 12-15 minutes until the cheese starts to bubble and turns light brown.
Cooking and trying out new recipes is my passion. I come from a family with where type 2 diabetes is very common and we have lost many loved one due to complications of this disease. This blog is my humble attempt to create low-carb and healthy dishes and well as healthy lifestyle tips suitable for diabetics. This blog is to prove that healthy, primarily diabetic-friendly foods, can be tasty as well. Kuhapriyai @ Gita
