350 Calorie Chicken & Basil Pizza

Hey friends.  If you like what you see I would love for you to follow along in my creative adventures on Instagram.  You can also find me pinning away on Pinterest.

If you started with a New Year’s resolution of eating healthier and getting fit by now you are tired of being good, your eating choices are boring and you are ready to give up, right?  I know that feeling.  I have been making small changes in my health since August 24th and it is HARD.  The eating portion of being healthy will always be my biggest struggle.  What can I say I love food! And not just any food.  Cinnamon rolls, cookies, candy, and chocolate kinda food.

I am slowly making some changes in my diet.  The way I eat now is waaaay better than when I started in August.  My guess is that in three months it will be even better.  I thought I would share with you some recipes that help me maintain a lower calorie, balanced type of diet.

I love me some pizza.  I grew up in the Chicagoland area so good pizza runs in my blood.  While I would love to eat Giordanos pizza every day (All you Chicagoans give me a whoop whoop!) I would weigh as much as a small house if I did.  I still splurge on good yummy grease-infested pizza once in a while.  But for the majority of my pizza eating I try and cut down the calories.  The things that makes pizza such a heavy meal is the crust and the toppings.  I have tried English muffin and sandwich-thin bread crust.  They are pretty decent but my new find is the Flatout Breads.  I was perusing Kroger’s deli/bakery section the other day and decided to give the Light Sundried Tomato a whirl and I am officially hooked.

Ingredients:

one Flatout Bread Light Sundried Tomato (90 calories)

2 ounces of cooked shredded chicken breast (80 calories)

1/4 cup of pizza sauce (30 calories)

1/2 cup of reduced fat mozzarella cheese (140 calories)

basil

optional: 1 tbs basil pesto (this adds 60 calories – but it is so good)

 

1.  Set your oven to 375 degrees.  Once heated, warm the Flatout bread in the oven for 3 minutes to crisp up the crust.

4.  Bake for another 7-10 minutes.

So good and less than 350 calories without the pesto.  400 calories with the pesto.  That makes a great lunch or dinner and it is really filling.

You could obviously add more veggies to it. Unfortunately eating greens for me is a challenge and I would rather not subject my pizza to them.  However,  I added tomatoes to it the other day and that was yummy too.  What other healthy option pizza have you tried and liked?
