  Heat 'n Eat Hits

Here's a few of our favorite frozen phenoms...

Amy's Light & Lean - Amy makes TONS of tasty pizzas, but the pies in this line are our favorites. Why? They're single serving (no self-control needed!), and the stats can't be beat. In both Cheese and Italian Vegetable, each one has 270 - 280 calories and 6g fat (PointsPlus® value 6 - 7*). Go Amy, go Amy...

Kashi Thin Crust - When it comes to multi-serving pizzas that are supermarket staples, the ones from Kashi are in a league of their own! Crispy crust, amazing flavors... supreme deliciousness! Each pizza serves three, and each serving has 240 - 290 calories and 8 - 9g fat (PointsPlus® value 6 - 7*). Three cheers for team Kashi!

Vitalicious VitaPizza - Our newest pizza obsession! Low in fat, high in fiber, and perfectly portion controlled... just like ALL Vitalicious goodies. And each single-serving pizza has less than 200 calories!!! Just 190 calories, 2.5 - 3g fat, and 19g fiber (PointsPlus® value 5*). WOW. Click for the 411 on where to find...

Lean Cuisine Culinary Collection - The one-person pizzas in this line are PERFECT when you want to consume super-decadent pizza without spending a whole day's worth of calories. There's Roasted Garlic Chicken (with a creamy white sauce), Deep Dish Three Meat (with pepperoni, sausage, and beef), and more. Each pie has 300 - 390 calories and 5 - 9g fat (PointsPlus® value 8 - 10*).

Weight Watchers Smart Ones Pizza Minis - We're suckers for miniature foods! In both Cheese and Pepperoni, you can have four of these pizza minis for 270 - 280 calories and 7 - 8g fat (PointsPlus® value 7). Yumyumyum!

Are they traditional pizzas? No. But so what?!

Amy's Cheese Pizza Toaster Pops - Pop-Tart convenience with pizza flavor... Who could resist? These freezer-aisle treats make fantastic anytime snacks, with just 160 calories and 6g fat a pop (PointsPlus® value 4*). Yesssss!

Garden Lites Pizza Soufflé - This pizza-rific freezer find is worth seeking out! The 7-oz. soufflé has a mere 200 calories and 4g fat (PointsPlus® value 5*)... plus two full servings of vegetables! That rocks HARD.

  Think Outside the Pizza Box: DIY Superstars (Plus Recipes)!

Get crafty in the kitchen...

High-Fiber Pitas and Tortillas - It's almost TOO easy to make a pizza with one of these perfectly sized, circular bread items. Just bake until crispy, top, bake a bit longer, and chew! When it comes to pitas, we've got recipes for a sausage-topped pie, a garlic-chicken pick, a spicy hot-wing-style pizza, and a CPK swap! As for tortillas, try this Crispy White Pizza, this breakfast-inspired option, and the HG Special!

Pillsbury Classic Pizza Crust Refrigerated Dough - If crust is king of your pizza-loving universe, this dough will provide you with, well, CLASSIC pizza-bottom brilliance. Roll it out nice and thin, and you can get even more servings than the nutritional panel indicates. (FYI: Pillsbury's Thin Pizza Crust dough has much more fat than the Classic dough.) Check out these HG recipes for miniaturized deep-dish pies, a decadent BLT pizza, and a veggie-loaded pizza creation!

Unconventional Low-Carb Crusts - Treat a portabella mushroom cap like pizza crust! Make an egg-bottomed pizza pie! You can even pound a chicken cutlet thin, and top it off with all the fixins. Get creative, you! (Or just click on the links for HG recipes.)
