Naan Flat Bread Artichoke Pizza & Naan Flat Bread Red Pepper Pizza

26 May

Skinny Pizza – Calories: 326 Artichoke Pizza, 208 Red Pepper Pizza, 330 Combined Pizza

I came across the Naan Flat Bread Pizza while watching an episode of Dr. Oz. The next day I went out and bought the ingredients I needed at Trader Joe’s. My Artichoke version is slightly different and I came up with my own creation using Trader Joe’s Red Pepper Spread.

 

Naan Flat Bread Artichoke Pizza Ingredients (All ingredients are found at Trader Joe.)

1 Naam Bread

3 Tbsp Artichoke Spread

1/4 Cup (about 7)  Frozen Artichoke Hearts Thawed

1/4 Chopped Tomato

1 1/2 Tbsp of Ricotta Cheese

1/4 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

Naan Flat Bread Red Pepper Pizza Ingredients (All ingredients are found at Trader Joe.)

1 Naam Bread

2 Tbsp Red Pepper Spread

2-3 Chopped Spinach Leaves

1 Minced Garlic Clove

3 -4 Onion Slices (Thinly Sliced)

1 1/2 Tbsp of Ricotta Cheese

1/4 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

1/4 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

And of course I had to make one by combining both the Artichoke Spread and the Red Pepper Spread. I used all the same ingredients but I only used 1 Tbsp of the spreads each.

Preheat oven at 350 degrees

Cook the pizza 20 – 25 minutes or until cheese is fully melted.

 

 

All three were all very good. I love when I can eat something with so much flavor and it healthy for me. My favorite was the Red Pepper Pizza.
