In my desperate search for things to eat, and to find ways to replace the yummy things I miss (like pizza), I will occasionally post recipes and ideas here that I want to try. This week – I’m going for some sort of low-carb version of pizza (or a pizza-like substance)…
Things I Need To Buy
- Toufayan Bakeries Low Carb Pita Bread – 100 calories per pita / 3.5g fat / 125mg sodium / 16g carbs / 7g fiber / 8g protein
- Sargento Shredded 6 Cheese Italian – 90 calories per 1/4 cup / 7g fat / 200mg sodium / 2g carbs / 0 fiber / 7g protein
- Hunt’s Tomato Sauce w/Basil, Garlic & Oregano – 20 calories per 1/4 cup / 0 fat / 360mg sodium / 4g carbs / 1g fiber / 0 protein (only need a spoonful or so though so even less of an impact on the actual recipe)
Note (if making something like a quesadilla instead) – the 4 Cheese Mexican blend has 110 calories per 1/4 cup / 9g fat / 170mg sodium / 2g carbs / 0 fiber / 6g protein. Also look for low-carb tortillas.
So just slap sauce and cheese on the pita and bake for a bit. Then YUM!!! Could also add some spinach (which is negligible in terms of calories and carbs) for a little something extra.
Couldn’t find the low-carb pita’s at my FL, but will keep checking around. Did find Mama Mary’s Thin & Crispy pizza crusts which aren’t nearly as great, but will do in a pinch. They have 19 carbs per 1/2 crust and 120 calories. 190mg sodium and 3g protein. So would count for a lot if I ate the whole thing, but still better than nothing.
Obviously, the low-carb pitas are a myth. I mean, I’m sure they exist somewhere, just not anywhere on my plane of existence. 😦
