...Like a Big Pizza Pie!

Well, not a big pizza pie, but more like a single serving pizza pie.

I was craving pizza last night and as I stood there for 15 minutes with the fridge open thinking how I was going to make pizza with very few groceries left over from this weeks shopping trip, I thought "TORTILLA!"

Yup, I made a pizza on a tomato basil tortilla. I absolutely LOVE La Tortilla Factory tortillas. There are so many varieties of these tortillas, and most of them clock in at 1 weight watcher points. They are great for wraps, quesadillas and yes, pizza.

I gathered up some fresh tomatoes that we had picked from Justin's parents garden, sliced them up and made this fabulous tasting (and looking) pizza shown below all for about 5 ww points*.

1 tomato basil softwrap
1 tsp. evoo
tomato slices
1/4 cup reduced fat mozzarella cheese
4-5 basil leaves
garlic to taste

Coat pan with non-stick spray.

Place tortilla in pan and spread evoo and garlic across it. Place sliced tomato and basil evenly across the tortilla. Top with cheese.

Heat pan on medium heat and cook until cheese is melted. Serve and eat!

The best thing about making a personal pizza like this is that you can top it however you like. If you want to put tomato sauce on instead of evoo, go ahead! Throw some mushrooms on there! Load it with veggies! Do whatever you like - it will still be delicious.

This meal is also great for kids because it's so quick and easy. Just put the tortilla in the pan and tell them to load it up with whatever they like!

I calculated this to have about 5 ww points*, 1 for the tortilla, 2 for the cheese and 2 for the evoo (this could even be omitted if you so desired.) Serve with a side salad and you have a healthy, hearty meal.

Flat wraps make the best pizzas when you don't want to have a whole major pizza on your hands (Although I don't know when that's really the case, lol)
