Easy Peasy Pizza and NuNaturals Stevia Winners

Please share if you love it!

By Friday I’m working on saving a few calories for the weekend. It isn’t unusual for dinner commitments to derail my healthy eating plan, so this easy pizza recipe is a good place to start. It’s low in calories and very satisfying.

Tortilla Pizzas

Tortilla Pizzas

A simple tortilla makes a terrific pizza crust. I topped my tortilla with fresh tomato sauce, creamy beans, and sweet basil, but you could top them with anything you like. Leftover chicken and roasted vegetables would be a good choice too.

Healthy cooking tip . . .

Using fresh herbs in a recipe vastly improves the flavor. Parsley, cilantro and basil (when in season) are often readily available in the produce aisles of your local grocery store, and perk up almost any dish.

    I never think to use tortillas as pizza crust, but you’re right, it would be perfect. I also love a pizza that has plenty of garlic and basil on it so this is right up my alley. Thanks for sharing the recipe and idea.

  2. says

    Wow this looks really delicious and simple to make. I may give this a shot soon:) Thanks for sharing and posting this pizza recipe.

      It was simple, that’s for sure. That’s what Friday meals are for me – quick and easy so I can get my housework done and enjoy the weekend.

    I feel the same way about Christmas parties and cookouts. It’s often hard to make good food choices that don’t undo the rest of the week’s worth of paying attention. This is a great and healthy way to enjoy what you love!

      The tortillas really were a great base. When my kids were growing up we used all kinds of pizza crusts. English muffins were a favorite too.

      Congratulations! I really do like the product, and can’t find anything bad to say about using it instead of sugar, other than that it is refined, so to me that takes away from the idea that it’s all natural.

      If you have the opportunity to get Tortilla Land’s tortillas, they really are the best I’ve ever had and perfect for these pizzas.

    I need to visit here more often…I’m derailing nearly every day! This looks like a delicious dinner…without the normal pizza calories. Thanks for the tortilla rec, too :)

    I love using tortillas for pizza – so nice and crisp! I go for pitas sometimes, especially if I want a heartier base to load up on pizza toppings, the Josephs high fiber variety are my favorite. They also get wonderfully crisp, and a bit nutty. Yum!

    • says

      Great tip Katie! You can find Josephs pitas here. I’ll have to give them a try. I love stuffing pita shells with all kinds of tasty ingredients.

  6. says

    Wow…this still looks really good :)

    Just to let you know, you can use any white fish in that recipe. They make it here with Mahi Mahi, Snapper and Grouper so it should work with the white fish you’ve got handy as well.
