Amazing White Pizza!!!

12 Jun

Not only did this pizza taste amazing, it looked great and I knew I should have taken a picture to blog but I never remember to take pics (that and DH makes fun of me when he catches me – he still doesn’t even know about my blog!) So, anyway, I’m on a new “diet” but I’m really just starting to be more conscious of my food intake. I don’t want to give up my faves but I’m just making smarter decisions. LIke pizza for instance. I couldn’t live without pizza so I’ll still eat it, I’ll just make two small ones – a man-friendly and a me-friendly…. Last night I grilled two small pizza’s; my husband’s had sauce, lots of cheese, pepperoni and canadian bacon. A good combo but not always waist friendly so, here was mine….

Grilled Waist-Friendl(ier) Pizza
1/2 of a Trader Joes Whole Wheat pizza dough
some EVOO
1 clove minced garlic
1/3 – 1/2 cup 2% Mozzarella Cheese shredded
3 slices canadian bacon (depends on size of the slices – mine were medium sized)
a few Fresh Basil leaves
– simmer garlic in EVOO on a low temp
– Roll out dough on floured surface to desired thickness and shape
– place on heated grill at a medium temp for ~4 minutes
– flip and grill other side until no longer doughy
– brush top with Garlic EVOO
– spread cheese over crust
– rip Canadian Bacon and sprinkle on cheese
– gently rip basil and sprinkle on top
– put on top rack of grill to melt cheese
– slice and serve!
