I make a basic pizza crust from stratch-flour, olive oil egg, yeast-, then add wheat germ to the mix.Shape in pan ,pressing sesame seeds into the end crust, prebake at 400 about 10-12 minutes, then add sauce and toppings, I prefer green pepper, onion, mushrooms and since hubby likes pepperoni, I cut the slices into strips and sprinkle on top using much less. Then I add the mozzerella Last sprinkling on top of toppings, Using much less cheese than applying first. Finish baking another 15 minutes or so until done depending on size of pizza.
I take large whole wheat pita bread, slice in half so you have two circles. Place on a cookie sheet, add your toppings and bake for just a few minutes until all is melted and crispy !!

One favorite is whole wheat pita bread I get at the health food store. I keep it in the freezer and just take one out at a time. Add pizza sauce, turkey pepperoni and a dash of mozzarella. Yum!
The other crust I like is ezekiel bread tortilla, 80 calories. I left one out and didn't use for my lunch and it dried and got really crispy. So good! I put a laughing cow cheese, scrambled egg and salsa on it. It would make a great crust.

I am a pizza freak too! Besides making it with a thin, whole wheat crust - other things I've done is make a personal pizza with a high fiber wheat tortilla, also make mini pizzas with light english muffins or skinny bagels. When I allow myself to "splurge" every now and then it usually is on either mexican food or pizza, so I feel your pain! But making light versions or snack versions definitely helps with the cravings.

I LOVE Pizza! The toppings and the sauce can easily be made to fit your diet, but the CRUST is the kicker. Im looking for recipes for a healthier crust or any pizza making ideas/recipes.
