Fake pizza...I got this off one of the forums here and I make it ALL the time. It's filling and so easy to make I dont even need to use a recipe anymore :)

 

"Pizza"

1 10 inch tortilla shell (2pts)

1/2 c FF mozarella cheese (2pts)

1/4c sugar free or reduced sugar spaghetti or pizza sauce (1 pt)

garlic powder to taste

mushrooms (or any veggie you might like, precooked or warmed up)

PAM cooking spray

 

Preheat oven to 450. Spray a pizza pan with Pam and bake the tortilla shell for about 5 mins, or until brown and crispy.

 

Take it back out of the oven, spread the pizza sauce over the tortilla shell and sprinkle with garlic. Spread the mozarella cheese over the sauce, then the veggies over the cheese and put back in the oven. Bake for 12 to 15 mins until the cheese is slightly brown and bubbly.

 

This entire thing is only 5 points and it is YUMMY and filling.

love this recipe forum idea!

 

1 can drained black beans (I use 50% less sodium)

1/2 cup salsa

1 tomato chopped into small piece

1 very ripe avacado cut into small chunks

cilantro to taste

mix all ingredients, using back of spoon to smash avacado inot paste....

 

I use 1/2 cup servings and serve in many ways...

 

on low carb wraps

on brown rice, cold for salad

on bed of torn spinach

with baked tortilla chips

 

the points are a bit iffy for me on this...I do 2 points per serving for the beans, 1 point for the avacado...and 0 for the salsa and tomato...and add whatever I am serving it on.


I make a choice to choose the JOY of the LORD today...and tomorrow...and to make each day count for HIM.

I've been on the soup board looking for a 0 point soup but they all have SO MANY INGREDIENTS that I find it daunting.

 

Anyone have a good 0 point soup recipe that fits the 6 ingredients or less thread?

 

Remember, I only make one thing REALLY well and that is DINNER RESERVATIONS!

This was posted by Norma on the 50's & 60's board and is just too good to not let anyone else know about it. It meets the 6 ingredient requirement, but I have to tell you that I added some additional ingredients such as onion, garlic, parsley, and oregano. I'm Italian, what can I tell you? But this is how the recipe was originally posted. If you don't want the other herbs, then leave them out. But it's so good and easy!!
