Maribel and Anjeanette, at the office have been dieting for Anjeanette's wedding. Maribel has bee wanting pizza for a couple days and it sounded good, so I hit up Whole Foods and grabbed some stuff to make high flavor but low fat personal-pizzas. They ended up being very tasty. Most of the ingredients were less than a full serving, so I am estimating maybe 4 or 5 grams of fat per pizza...mostly due to olive oil in the sauce/peppers and milk fat in the cheese...all good fats.
  • Bagged organic round pitas (fat free)
  • 365 roasted red pepper pasta sauce (very low fat)
  • Jar of fire roasted red peppers (very low fat)
  • Fresh basil leaves (fat free)
  • A couple mozzarella balls from the salad bar (use sparingly for taste, but low fat)
  • Bag of part skim shredded mozzarella (use sparingly for taste, but low fat)
  • Baked chicken chunks from the salad bar (use sparingly for taste, but low fat)

I sauced the pitas, sprinkled a little shredded mozzarella around, added 3 pepper strips to each, added 3 basil leaves to each, added 3 cubes of chicken to each (had to cut up the larger pieces), cut mozarella balls in half (in hindsight, could have cut into fourths) and dropped 3 pieces on pizza.

Broiled at 400 for 10 minutes or so, until melty and toasty.
