Kvell and plotz over your rice-less sushi all you want, but lowering your carbohydrate intake DOES in fact prove to be the most effective method of losing weight.
Here is a low carb, whole grain alternative to eating a
Whole Wheat Tortillas
- 1 can / jar of Marinara sauce (NO chunks)
- 1 bag of shredded Pizza Cheese (aka Mozzarella) and/ or fresh shredded Parmesan
Spray both sides of tortilla with a bit of cooking oil (aka PAM). Put in oven (on tin foil) for about 2 minutes on each side at 350. This makes for a crispy crust.
Take the tortilla out and spread with marinara and top with your cheese. Act like one of those pizza guys, but don’t make a mess on the floor. Put the mini pizza back in the oven and cook until cheese bubbles and the top browns. Take out and BE PATIENT—the pizza must cool for a few minutes before you take a knife to it.
How to Plate: Cut the mini pizza as you would a large one. The pieces are very cute. This works great as an appetizer!
Note for Goyisha: Top with any meat like grilled chicken to add protein in this yummy dish!
