Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Hungry Girl’s English Muffin Hawaiian Pizza
I enjoyed this English Muffin Hawaiian Pizza for lunch recently. I have to say it was the most fun and tasty lunch I had made for myself in a while.
I’ve loved English muffin pizzas since I was a kid. Back then we never made anything as fancy as an English muffin Hawaiian pizza. We mostly ate them plain, with a little tomato sauce and mozzarella.
My mom, sister and brother love to remind me of the night I ate 13 of them for supper. And I remind them that I didn’t get fat by eating small. I was a big girl with a big appetite back then!
I got the idea for this English Muffin Hawaiian Pizza from Hungry Girl, Lisa Lillien. It’s the first recipe in her cookbook, Hungry Girl 1-2-3: The Easiest, Most Delicious, Guilt-Free Recipes on the Planet.
Needless to say, the description of this Easy Hawaiian Pizza with sauce, cheese, ham and pineapple was enough to get me excited.
It’s quick and easy too. All you need is about 5 minutes to put it together and another 8 to 10 minutes to let it bake.
Skinny on Hungry Girl’s English Muffin Hawaiian Pizza
I adapted the recipe slightly, to work with what I had on hand.
I substituted tomato sauce with a little Italian seasoning mixed in for the low-fat marinara.
I replaced pineapple tidbits for the pineapple ring.
And shredded part-skim mozzarella for the string cheese, which is really the same thing, isn’t it?
Served with a tossed green salad, this made an easy, healthy and delicious lunch.
The entire recipe has just 230 calories and *6 Weight Watchers PointsPlus, *6 Freestyle SmartPoints.
