Mexican Pizza!

We had some leftover taco meat, and were trying to figure out what to do with it.  Another flatbread pizza recipe was born!  This one does have more points, because it has beans, ground beef, and full fat cheese.  The version you see here was 9 points per serving, but you can adapt it to lower the points value.

 

Mexican Pizza

Serves 2

1 Flatout Flatbread, Light Original

3 wedges Laughing Cow Light Queso Fresco & Chipotle flavor

4 oz. 85% lean ground beef

Your choice of taco seasoning

1/2 c Fat Free Refried Beans

1/4 c Kirkland Signature Mexican Blend shredded cheese

Chopped onions

Your favorite fat free salsa, to taste

Cook beef in your choice of taco seasoning, according to the directions.  Spread 3 wedges of Laughing Cow cheese on the flatbread.  Spread refried beans over the Laughing Cow cheese.  Then, spread on salsa.  Top with ground beef, shredded cheese, and onions.  Bake at 375 for 10 minutes.  Enjoy!

As I said, you can make all kinds of adaptations to lower the points.  The possibilities are endless!  Replace the beef with chicken, or remove the chicken and make a veggie pizza.  Replace the cheese with a variety that is lower in fat, or remove the cheese.  Let me know what kinds of pizza you make!

 

 

 

New Flatbread Pizza Idea!

My mom and I created a new flatbread pizza recipe.  I hope you like it!

Veggie Flatbread Pizza

Serves 2.  4 Weight Watchers Points per serving

 

1 Light Original Flatout Flatbread

3 Creamy Swiss Light Laughing Cow wedges

1/4 c Newman’s Own Mushroom Marinara (or your favorite cream-free marinara)

Veggies of your choice (We used mushrooms, onions, and bell peppers)

1/2 c Kraft 2% Mozzarella Shredded Cheese

Papa Murphy’s Herb & Cheese blend (or other garlic/cheese seasoning)

1 tsp. (or less) Olive Oil (or cooking spray)

 

Lightly saute the vegetables, just so that they will be cooked through when you bake the pizza.  Spread three wedges of Laughing Cow cheese over the entire flatbread.  Spread sauce over the entire flatbread.  Add the vegetables, then the cheese.  Lightly sprinkle with the herb and cheese blend (I said LIGHTLY.  Using too much of anything with cheese in it will add another point.  If you don’t want to add something with cheese, you can just use garlic or herbs).  Bake at 375 for 10 minutes on the oven rack for a crunchy crust.  Enjoy!

Let me know if you try your own pizza and what toppings you used!

Laughing Cow is my friend…plus an announcement!

I know I am not the first to say this, but I have made a discovery that has changed my life. I have discovered Laughing Cow cheese wedges. For months, I have been enjoying the Mini Babybel cheeses for a quick bite of protein, but I have only recently begun to enjoy the Laughing Cow wedges. They are full of creamy deliciousness, and have a variety of uses. I have personally had them in tacos, grilled cheese sandwiches, pasta sauce, as a bagel topping, and on pizza. My favorite way to use them is on a flatbread pizza. They are so creamy, you can use them as a sauce and a cheese, which will save you a ton of points/calories/fat grams!

The light varieties come in six flavors. I have personally tasted the Creamy Swiss and Queso Fresco & Chipotle. My personal favorite so far, the Creamy Swiss flavor, has 35 calories and 1.5 grams of fat per wedge. It has one point for 1-2 wedges. It is kind of exciting to figure out new ways to use this, making delicious low-point snacks and meals. In doing a little research for this post, I noticed that you can find recipes on their site as well. I definitely plan to try some of them and will review them here. If you are working on a healthy lifestyle plan, I highly recommend you check these out. Let me know if you do and how you use them!

Now, on to my announcement! I have created a Facebook page for my blog! I hope you will check it out and “like” it. I will be posting blog updates, photos, any other thoughts or links I want to share with you.
