Friday Favorites: Lighter Healthier Alternatives to Pizza with SmartPoints
Friday has always been my favorite day of the week.
So, we've decided to begin celebrating Fridays with weekly giveaways here on Simple Nourished Living!
We are dubbing them "Friday Favorites" and kicking off by giving away a 40-ounce Hydro Flask Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle! (affiliate link) (Scroll down to the end of the post for all the details.)
Is there anything better than Friday?
Pizza makes my happy 🙂
Combine Friday with pizza and I'm in heaven!
Growing up we often had pizza for supper Friday nights. It was a tradition that I continued through college and into my early working years.
Heck, I love pizza so much I've even made it in the crockpot!
Sometimes I satisfy my pizza cravings with lighter, healthier alternatives to traditional pizza that are just as delicious.
Here's a great video from Weight Watchers featuring 3 Healthy Delicious Pizza Recipes
I've gathered a few of my favorites here for you to check out.
They include pizza-flavored "mini muffin pizza bites," veggie-crusted pizzas, "English muffin pizzas" and thin crusted pizza flatbreads made from pitas, tortillas, or prepared thin crusts (like boboli or lavosh flatbread).
Even my mom, a huge pizza lover, has started making her own mini pizzas with tortilla crusts at home, instead of heading out to her favorite pizza joint when a craving strikes.
Favorite Lighter Healthier Alternatives to Pizza
Pepperoni Pizza Bites - These pepperoni pizza mini muffins are a lighter healthier way to satisfy a pizza craving. I love them dipped in a little warm marinara sauce. Each one has just 29 calories and 1 Weight Watchers SmartPoint.
English Muffin Hawaiian Pizza – A light english muffin topped with sauce, cheese, ham and pineapple is fun, easy, healthy and delicious way to satisfy a pizza craving any time of day, 230 calories, 6 SmartPoints
Chicken Arugula Flatbread - All you need is a flatbread/lavash wrap (we used the whole wheat kind), bruschetta sauce (a simple mixture of chopped tomatoes, olive oil, garlic and basil), cooked chicken (leftovers or rotisserie chicken works well), fresh arugula, and some shaved Parmesan cheese. 8 SmartPoints
Pizza-Bellas Recipe - A portabella mushroom forms the crust of this tomato, cheese, turkey pepperoni, olive and cheese stuffed pizza creation, 118 calories, 2 SmartPoints (Hungry Girl)
Zucchini Pepperoni Pizza, Zucchini slices are used as crust for these clever pepperoni pizzas, 56 calories, 1 SmartPoint (Slender Kitchen)
Meat Lovers Pizza - A thin crust, light cheese, and turkey sausage and pepperoni keep the fat and calories in check, without compromising flavor, 207 calories, 6 SmartPoints (Emily Bites)
