We made a 9 SmartPoints value Pepperoni Tortilla Pizza:

  • Spread 1/4 c marinara sauce onto a medium whole-wheat tortilla

  • Sprinkle with 1/4 c part-skim shredded mozzarella

  • Top with 10–14 thin slices turkey pepperoni and 9 sliced olives

  • Bake at 350°F until cheese melts and tortilla crisps, 3-5 minutes

  • Sprinkle with fresh oregano

Other ideas to try
  • Load up on other 0 SmartPoints toppings—capers, pickled onions, and sliced jalapeño peppers.

  • Look for seasoned shredded low-fat pizza cheese to punch up flavor.

  • Store-bought naan and sandwich thins also make great pizza crusts. 

  • Want to ditch the traditional crust altogether? Use sliced zucchini and/or eggplant rounds for a base layer instead.
