Mimi's Low Fat Pizza

I finally came up with a Low Fat Pizza recipe. I am a dedicated Pizza lover and have really missed my favorite food while on this journey of weight loss. My sister and I were talking about coming up with a pizza recipe that would be easy to make and low in calories. Well, here is how I made this Lovely work of art....
*1 whole wheat pita
*low fat/low sodium pizza sauce (I read all the labels on all the varieties in the store until I found the lowest in fat and calories)
*saute green & red bell peppers & sweet onions in about 2 Tbs. olive oil
*mushroom slices
*sun-dried tomatoes (in a jar)
*low-fat part skim mozzerella cheese
*oregano flakes
Spread about 1/4 cup of pizza sauce on the pita. Sprinkle with oregano. Slice the sun-dried tomatoes in small pieces and scatter around. Start adding other ingredients and end up topping with the cheese. Bake at 400 degree for about 20 min. or until cheese melts and light brown. I made enough to have for lunch and dinner the next day.
My sister made her pizza with low fat english muffins instead of the whole wheat pita bread. If anyone trys to make this, please let me know how you liked it. I found it to be very delicious and filling. I will be making it again....
Here is my Sister's recipe for her low fat pizza. She used the Thomas's english muffin's 100 cal. for the crust and she also added hot italian turkey sausage. She cooked the sausage on top of the stove first. Her's have the bell peppers & mushrooms also.

i will need this. I ordered pizza tonight for a final kick off before round #2 of the diet.

* We always used to make mini pizzas with english muffins growing up. The WW ones are good too!

I am so glad you found something to fill that craving for pizza. I am proud of you!

We had Chicken Pot Pie, Weight Watcher's style tonight. It was delicious!

Looks good, we make english muffin pizza things all the time. I only cook with turkey meat, I'll have to try the low sodium pizza sauce though.

I also make the english muffin pizzas. I use Thomas' english muffins Light Multi-grain because they have 8 grams of fiber. I'm told that in Weight watchers higher fiber reduces your fat count, or something like that. These are harder to find, but I usually find them at Stracks.
I use them instead of bread because of the high fiber.
