PER SERVING (1/6th of the package): 160 calories, 2g fat, 470mg sodium, 31g carbs, 1g fiber, 4g sugars, 5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4*
This refrigerated pizza crust dough in a can RULES. It is PERFECT for making no-guilt pizza for a crowd. And even though it says it makes 6 servings, if you roll it out a little thinner, you can easily get 8 sizable servings out of it. (If you're wondering why we don't just use the Thin Crust version Pillsbury makes, it's because it has twice as much fat as the Classic.) Try it out in our Just Veggin' Pizza!
Lifetime Fat Free Mozzarella (Block Form)
PER SERVING (1 oz., one 1-inch cube): 40 calories, 0g fat, 220mg sodium, 1g carbs, 0g fiber, 1g sugars, 8g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1*
Yup, the stuff that comes in a block. Don't give us that look, Lazy! It actually melts BETTER than the pre-shredded stuff. (FYI, this cheese has no relation to the lady-oriented television network of the same name.) Get clickin' here to see where it's sold, or head here to find out how to order.
Sargento Light String Cheese
PER SERVING (1 piece): 50 calories, 2.5g fat, 180mg sodium, 1g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 6g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1*
What's easier than pulling out the cheese grater? Ripping the cheese apart with your bare hands. Sounds brutal, but it's just string cheese! Sargento's version is great and WAY low in calories. PLUS it's pre-portioned and the perfect amount for a personal-sized snack. Just tear it into shreds and roughly chop. P.S. There are many other brands offering light string cheese with similar stats.
Progresso Crushed Tomatoes
PER SERVING (1/4 cup): 20 calories, 0g fat, 95mg sodium, 4g carbs, 1g fiber, 2g sugars, 1g protein -- PointsPlus® value 0*
Since we know SO many people out there are watching their sodium intake, we're giving these canned crushed tomatoes a shout-out. This puree-like stuff tastes way less "canny" than standard tomato sauce. Just doctor it up to your liking (some garlic and Italian seasoning do the job nicely), and use it instead of sauce for your next at-home pizza. You can also find some fun flavored varieties out there, like fire-roasted, Italian-style, roasted garlic, and sweet basil. Sweet indeed...
Hormel Turkey Pepperoni
PER SERVING (17 slices): 70 calories, 4g fat, 640mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 9g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*
Check out that portion size, people... 17 slices! WHOA! There's no end to the number of fun things you can do with this lean pepperoni, but putting it on guilt-free pizza tops our list.
PER SERVING (2/3 cup): 80 calories, 2.5g fat, 230mg sodium, 5g carbs, 3g fiber, <1g sugars, 10g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*
We use these more than the Boca Meatless Ground Crumbles because they're easier to find in our area, but the stats are practically the same and we love 'em both. Load up your homemade pizza with a handful of these for a meaty-tasting topper.
These items are super-easy (and super-delicious) guilt-free add-ons. Keep your favorites on hand: jarred roasted red peppers, jarred jalapenos, canned mushrooms, reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping, canned sliced black olives, etc. Or just get crazy with whatever's in your fridge or pantry. And if you have the time to slice and dice, fresh veggies ROCK as pizza toppings.
