Truth be told, I love pizza. It’s one of my favorite indulgences. But, as Father Time marches on, I have come to realize I am not 22 anymore. Indulging in even one slice of pizza can equal 400 calories or more.
I have to watch what I eat, when I eat it and how much of it I’m consuming. And, that usually means no more than one indulgence a month. I was pretty bummed about giving up pizza altogether, so I needed an alternative.
Enter my salvation from a pizza-free diet: Lavash Bread. This recipe is so easy that it’s done in a matter of minutes. There is no pan required, no dough to let rise and the tasty results are a little over 100 calories for the entire thing-depending on how much feta cheese you require.
Lavash Bread-I prefer Jospeh’s (they come 4 to a pack for about $2)
1 TBS Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 tsp Garlic Salt
1/4 tsp Italian Seasoning
1/8 C Red Onion
6 Cherry or 3 Grape Tomatoes
1-2 TBS Feta Cheese
6 Medium Leaves of Fresh Basil
Preheat the oven to 425.
Cook for 5-6 minutes or until the edges are turning slightly brown.
