When you think of clean eating, or whatever diet resolution you have made this year, you may have thought, “Shoot I have to give up my favorite foods.” While many of your favorite foods might have to be cut back, there are still some simple ways to keep enjoying them. Today it’s all about the good things in life. Like pizza and quesadillas.
“Excuse me, I’ll have a diet pizza.”
A what? A diet pizza?
Now you’re probably wondering what kind of pizza would be a diet pizza?
Because clean eating means eating things that are not processed, therefore pizza is 100% in that list. But I found a loophole. It starts with a quesadilla shell. Whole wheat, low fat, 80 calorie quesadilla shell. This is what mine looked like.
Here’s the best part. You can make whatever pizza you want out of it, just watch those portion sizes and you’ll be all good to go. I chose to put mini roma tomatoes, feta cheese, avocado,bacon bits, spinach, and a tiny splash of shredded cheddar cheese. While my mom and I had similar pizzas, my step-dad amped his up with ham slices, more cheese, spinach and bacon. While this is a pretty simple recipe to enjoy possibly one of your favorites; Here’s what you’ll need:
-whatever toppings you’d like (cheeses, green leaves, veggies, meats).
-a pan and parchment paper, and tortilla shells
Here’s what you’ll need to do:
-Preheat the oven to 330*F
-Place parchment paper on shells and spread about 1/2-1 tablespoon olive oil on tortilla shells.
-Put pizzas in oven about 3 minutes
-Decorate your pizza
-Put pizzas in oven until cheeses melt
(I continually watched our pizzas.)
You can always raise the oven temp if you’d like it to go a bit faster. While dieting can be a bit boring, I know you can have some fun with this simple recipe! How have your new years resolutions been going so far? What’s your favorite pizza? What food do you miss the most, when is your cheat day? I’m planning mine on day 90 so then I know I went 3 whole months clean eating!
