Lean Green Pizza

I was definitely craving cheesy pizza after my run – the kind that oozes all over the place, and when you bite into it pulls long strings *drools*
But I wasn’t going to let all my hard work go to waste!

Abs for 2013 summer baby!
So in order not to go insane dreaming about cheese, I rode over to the supermarket to buy ingredients for a healthy pizza.
This pizza is low calorie, delicious, and good for you!
Bet you didn’t expect that in a pizza recipe 😉
I didn’t want to use store tomato sauce, as I have recently discovered the amount of bad sugars and lack of nutritional benefit from eating it, however I didn’t have a tomato sauce alternative, so I decided to use a low calorie hummus. If you want, feel free to use a tomato sauce, or maybe even avyar.

256 calories only guys!

  1. This is the kind of pizza I should make because I was complaining about weight around my middle. It looks very healthy and tasty too. Thanks for sharing and have a lovely week!
