Yes, I said pizza. But it is my version of pizza. In fact I have come to love this version even more than “real” pizza. (No, this is not the cauliflower pizza that has been circling Facebook… although I am making that tonight so watch for it.) This pizza is made with only four ingredients – that you possibly already have in your fridge.
Now… this one isn’t “pretty.” But what it lacks in appearance it certainly makes up in flavor. My favorite post work out “pizza” –
Now, before you dismiss this – I want you to try it. See, I discovered this amazingness after a Girls Night In where we indulged in entirely too much wine. The only thing in the house was pretty much the ingredients above and none of us were driving anywhere. My friend Christy began concocting (while I turned my nose up and told her she was crazy… but I was starving so I tried it) and we ended up with what has become our all time favorite snack.
Healthy Pizza Recipe
Romaine Pizza Rollups
- Romaine Hearts
- Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
- Low Fat String Cheese
- Black Olives
Cut the end off of the romaine hearts and divide leaves. Rinse and dry. Smear a tablespoon of Roasted Red Pepper Hummus (I prefer Sabra) inside. Divide a piece of string cheese longways into threes and place one third lengthwise on top of hummus. Add slices of black olives – I used about 1 1/2 large olives on each because I love them. Microwave for 20-30 seconds or until hummus is warm and cheese just starts to melt. Enjoy.
Each “roll up” has approximately 82 calories, 3.5 grams of fat and 4.3 grams of carbs according to MyFitnessPal calculations. There are also 2 grams of dietary fiber and 3.8 grams of protein.
And did I mention they are delicious?!!
Even Mike and the girls love them! This is now a staple in our household and easy to grab post work out, after school, or for late night munchies.
