The HG Special Pizza

Entire recipe: 285 calories, 8.5g total fat (4g sat fat), 930mg sodium, 37.5g carbs, 8.5g fiber, 7g sugars, 20.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 7* -- SmartPoints® value 8*

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 medium-large high-fiber flour tortilla with 110 calories or less (like the kinds by La Tortilla Factory)
1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
1/4 cup reduced-sodium creamy tomato soup with 4g fat or less per serving (like 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. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Lay tortilla on the sheet and bake until slightly crispy, about 5 minutes.

Flip tortilla and spread with cheese wedge, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Cover cheese with soup, soy crumbles, and onion. Sprinkle with Parm-style topping and garlic powder, and top with chopped cheese.  

Bake until chopped cheese has melted and tortilla is crispy, about 5 minutes. Slice and eat!


Pizza-Pied Nachos

1/4th of recipe (9 loaded chips): 213 calories, 5.5g total fat (2g sat fat), 744mg sodium, 28.5g carbs, 3.5g fiber, 4.5g sugars, 10.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5* -- SmartPoints® value 6*

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.

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.

2 oz. cooked and chopped skinless chicken breast
1 tsp. Frank’s RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce, or more to taste
1 high-fiber pita
1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
1 tsp. reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping
1 tbsp. chopped scallions

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

In a small bowl, toss chicken with hot sauce.

Lay pita on the baking sheet. Spread with cheese, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Top with saucy chicken and sprinkle with Parm-style topping.

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

Sprinkle with scallions. Yum time!
