The HG Special Pizza

PER SERVING (entire recipe): 254 calories, 9.5g fat, 1,009mg sodium, 31.5g carbs, 14g fiber, 7g sugars, 22.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 7*

Three kinds of cheese... a "secret" sauce... assorted yum-ilicious toppings. You will be dreaming about this veg-tastic pizza until the end of time!

1 La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious Low Carb High Fiber Large Tortilla
1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
1/4 cup Amy's Organic Chunky Tomato Bisque
1/4 cup frozen ground-beef-style soy crumbles (like the kind by Boca or MorningStar Farms), thawed
3 tbsp. chopped red onion
1/2 tbsp. reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1 piece Mini Babybel Light cheese, chopped

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Place tortilla on a baking sheet sprayed with nonstick spray. Bake in the oven until slightly crispy, about 5 minutes.

Remove sheet from the oven and carefully flip tortilla. Once cool enough to handle, evenly spread cheese wedge over the tortilla, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edge. Cover cheese with the bisque.

Evenly top the saucy layer with soy crumbles and onion. Sprinkle with garlic powder and Parm-style topping, and then evenly top with chopped cheese.

Bake in the oven until cheese has melted and tortilla is crispy, about 5 minutes. Cut into slices and eat!



Pizza-Pied Nachos

PER SERVING (1/4th of recipe, 9 loaded nachos): 213 calories, 5.5g fat, 744mg sodium, 28.5g carbs, 3.5g fiber, 4.5g sugars, 10.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5*

The first time we made these crazy-amazing pizza-ed up snacks, we could NOT stop smiling. (Which is unfortunate, because you lose a lot of chew time that way.) Try this recipe immediately!

3 sticks light string cheese
Six 6-inch corn tortillas
2 dashes salt
1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
1/2 cup diced bell pepper
1/2 cup diced onion
1 cup jarred pizza sauce
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tbsp. reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping
17 slices turkey pepperoni (like the kind by Hormel), chopped

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a large baking sheet or ovenproof platter with nonstick spray and set aside.

Break each string cheese stick into thirds and place in a blender or food processor -- blend at high speed until shredded/grated. (Or tear into pieces and roughly chop.) Set aside.

To make the chips, stack tortillas and cut in half. Cut each stack of halves into 3 triangles, for a total of 36 pieces.

Evenly lay tortilla triangles flat on the sheet or platter, and cover with a generous mist of nonstick spray. Sprinkle with a dash of salt. Flip triangles and sprinkle with another dash of salt.

Bake in the oven for 5 minutes. Carefully flip triangles and bake until crispy, about 5 minutes longer. (Leave oven on.)

Meanwhile, bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat on the stove. Add veggies and, stirring occasionally, cook until slightly softened, about 5 minutes.

Reduce heat to low. Add pizza sauce and garlic powder. Mix well and continue to cook until hot.

Evenly top chips with sauce. Sprinkle with Parm-style topping and shredded/grated cheese. Top with turkey pepperoni.

Return to the oven until cheese has melted, about 5 minutes. Enjoy!


HG Alternative! For a meat-free option, feel free to swap the turkey pepperoni for some sliced black olives. 

American Buffalo Chicken Pizza

PER SERVING (entire recipe): 265 calories, 5g fat, 1,139mg sodium, 31g carbs, 5.75g fiber, 2.5g sugars, 23g protein -- PointsPlus® value 6*

What's more American than pizza that tastes like hot wings? (Other than an apple pie in the shape of an eagle waving the US flag.) Not much.

1 high-fiber or whole-wheat pita
1/2 tsp. dry ranch dressing/dip mix
1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese, room temperature
2 oz. cooked and chopped skinless lean chicken breast
1 tsp. Frank's RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce, or more to taste
1 tbsp. reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping
1 tbsp. chopped scallions  

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray. Place pita on the sheet and set aside.

In a small bowl, combine ranch mix with cheese wedge and thoroughly mix. Spread evenly onto the pita, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edge.

In another small bowl, toss chicken with hot sauce. Scatter saucy chicken over the ranchy cheese layer, and sprinkle evenly with Parm-style topping.

Bake in the oven until hot and toasty, 10 - 12 minutes.

Sprinkle with scallions, slice into quarters and, if you like, top with a little extra hot sauce. Yum time!
