HG's Loaded 'n Oated Pepperoni Pizza
HG's Loaded 'n Oated Pepperoni Pizza

Pepp Rally!
Personal-sized pizza rocks. Load it up with pepperoni, and it rocks more! But even the stuff found in the "diet" section of the freezer aisle is fairly high in fat. So, with a little swappy swap action at home, you can have your (pizza) pie and eat it, too. Our version has all the pizzazz of regular pepperoni-topped pizza without the crazy amounts of fat and calories. Check it out...

Ingredients:
1/4 cup Fiber One bran cereal (original)
1/4 cup regular oats (not instant)
1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1/3 cup shredded fat-free mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup canned tomato sauce with Italian seasonings (like Hunt's Tomatoes Sauce with Basil, Garlic & Oregano)
6 slices turkey pepperoni (like the kind by Hormel)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Optional toppings: salt, pepper, oregano, additional garlic powder, onion powder, red pepper flakes, etc.

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place Fiber One and oats in a blender, and grind until a breadcrumb-like consistency is reached. In a small bowl, combine the "breadcrumb'" mixture, egg substitute and garlic powder. Mix well. Bring a pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Spoon mixture into the pan and smooth into a circular shape (larger for a thin crust, smaller for a thick crust). Raise heat to medium-high. Spray a spatula on both sides with nonstick spray. Allow crust to cook until the bottom is slightly browned (about 2 minutes), and then gently flip with the spatula. Once both sides are slightly browned, remove crust from the pan, and place it on a plate to cool. Pour sauce evenly onto the oat/cereal crust, leaving a border of about half an inch. Next, evenly top sauce with the cheese, followed by the pepperoni. Place pizza directly on the oven rack, and cook for 10 minutes. If you like, season your pizza with the optional ingredients. Cut into quarters for 4 times the fun! MAKES 1 SERVING

Pizza Panic!
Pepperoni pizza may be Italian, but it's as American as apple pie. Unfortunately, this U.S. staple is likely responsible (at least in part) for the dreaded "freshman fifteen" and the nation's tighter fitting pants in general. The melted cheese and crispy meat usually stain the pizza box with oil, so don't even THINK about what they're doing to your stomach (yuck!). Even blotting the pie with napkins can't soak up enough of the damage done by pepperoni pizza's high-calorie, fatty ingredients. But who wants to say no to this classic? Not us! That's why we created a guilt-free (and fiber-packed!) alternative that tastes as good as the real thing. It's HG's Loaded 'n Oated Pepperoni Pizza. Coming soon to a kitchen near you...
