Flatbread Spinach and Pepperoni Pizza for One

Pizza is one of those things that I really miss when trying to eat healthily. And, this pizza is a great substitute for delivery.  The crust is ultra thin because it’s actually flatbread, and I can control the ingredients.

Here are the ingredients and the nutritional breakdown. I probably could’ve made this healthier by adding a few more veggies and using a low-fat meat instead of pepperoni, but it still came in under 500 calories. For the whole pizza! I think kids would love making their own pizza too.

First, I sauteed the spinach with a tiny amount of olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. I sort of blotted the water out with paper towels. I preheated my oven to 400 convection (maybe 425 or 450 if just on bake). Then, I spooned on about 2 tablespoons of the marinara, 3 slices of pepperoni (they’re pretty large), a handful of the sauteed spinach, 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese, and a tablespoon of the 3-cheese blend. You want to keep the ingredients and sauce to a minimum because the crust is so thin, and it will get soggy if there’s too much on top.  I baked mine for about 10 minutes. Keep an eye on it, and take it out when the cheese starts to get brown and bubbly.
