Tac' to Me!

We love food mash-ups: combining two food favorites to make one new and amazing creation! Here's our guilt-free take on taco pizza...

1 stick light string cheese
3 tbsp. canned crushed tomatoes
2 dashes cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. chili powder
1/4 cup frozen ground-beef-style soy crumbles (like the kind by Boca or MorningStar Farms)
1/8 tsp. onion powder
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. cumin
1 high-fiber pita
2 tbsp. shredded reduced-fat Mexican-blend cheese
1 tbsp. fat-free sour cream
1 tsp. lime juice
2 tbsp. diced tomato
2 tsp. diced red onion
1 tbsp. chopped cilantro

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Break string cheese into thirds and place in a blender or food processor -- blend at high speed until shredded. (Or pull into shreds and roughly chop.)

In a small bowl, mix crushed tomatoes with cayenne pepper and 1/8 tsp. chili powder.

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine soy crumbles with onion powder and garlic powder. Add 1/8 tsp. cumin and remaining 1/8 tsp. chili powder. Microwave for 30 seconds, or until crumbles are hot. Mix well.

Lay pita on the baking sheet and spread with seasoned crushed tomatoes, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Sprinkle with shredded string cheese, top with seasoned soy crumbles, and sprinkle with shredded Mexican-blend cheese.

Bake until hot and lightly browned, 10 - 12 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix sour cream with lime juice and remaining 1/8 tsp. cumin.

Top pizza with diced tomato, onion, sour cream mixture, and cilantro. Eat up!

Fight it! Chili's Taco Pizza
Chili's Taco Pizza

Taco Doomsday.

There's a reason Taco Tuesday is a thing. Tacos are delicious, and people love them. There's also a reason that people will do just about anything -- including carry a sofa out of a third-floor walk-up apartment -- if you promise them pizza afterward. Pizza is delicious, and people love it. But the taco pizza that resulted from Chili's recent endeavor to combine the two is a little less than lovable. OOF, those stats... Almost 1,500 calories, and all that fat! No, no, no. We can make this better. High-fiber pitas make excellent pizza crusts, and ground-beef-style soy crumbles are a no-brainer when you need a single serving of meaty deliciousness. Reduced-fat cheese and a slimmed-down sour-cream drizzle bring the decadence without the excess calories and fat. What's not to love?
