Slice of Life: Healthy Meatball Pizza
Slice of Life is a series on inventive styles of pizza. Some may have toppings you’ve never thought of putting on pizza and a some use crusts that are a little out of the norm.
March Madness is here and that means pub grub. Everyone loves meatballs and everyone loves pizza so I have combined the two. Now I’m not the first person to ever make a meatball pizza, they are pretty common. But this may be the first ever healthy meatball pizza. Whole wheat naan for the crust, turkey meatballs, low-fat mozzarella and no-sugar added tomato sauce makes this a heart healthy pizza. Did I just say that? I think I did; in fact I’ll say it again: heart healthy pizza.
For those interested in the nutritional value of the ingredients just click on the links. What makes this pie even better is it is quick to make (provided you grocer’s bakery makes whole wheat naan like mine does – if not use whole wheat pita bread). Open a jar of Ragu Light No Sugar Added Tomato & Basil Pasta Sauce and spread a generous amount on the naan. Lightly sprinkle Sargento Reduced Fat Mozzarella Shredded Cheese over the sauce. Open a package of Honeysuckle Italian – style Turkey Meatballs slice them in half with the flat side down onto the pizza. Top with a little more cheese and bake in a 425 degree oven for 5 – 6 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and toppings are hot.
Oh, and my prediction? Kentucky over Kansas.
