Healthy 12-Inch Thin Crust Pizza Extravaganza

4 slices, 500 calories, 8 grams of fat, and 24 carbohydrates!  What more could you ask for in a quick and easy pizza to make at home.

I like to use Joseph's Lavash Flax Bread from the bakery section at Wal-mart.  I tried other stores, but haven't found a thin bread or anything similar where a 12-inch sheet of Flatbread is only 8 carbs.
I hope you like this recipe - it's one I will truly enjoy making for Ryan and myself.

Makes 8 Servings, 1 Pizza slice each

Preheat Oven: 380 degrees

- 1/2 Cup Onions, chopped
- 1 Cup Bell Peppers, chopped
- 1-1/2 Cup Tomatoes, chopped
- 1-1/2 Cup Great Value Fat Free Turkey Slices, cut into squares
- 1-12 inch Joseph's Flax Oat Bran & Wheat Lavash Bread
- 1/2  Cup Hunt's Garlic & Herb Pasta Sauce
- 1 Cup Kraft Fat Free Cheddar Cheese, shredded
- 1/2 Cup Kraft or Great Value Low-Moisture/Part Skim Mozzarella Cheese, shredded

- Wooden Spoon
- Knife for chopping, slicing
- Baker's Pan or Baking Sheeting
- Small Bowl

- Begin by prepping all your vegetables - slicing and chopping the ingredients listed and set aside.

- Pour spaghetti sauce on the Flax bread and spread in a circular motion over entire surface.
- You will be using a partial recipe of the cheeses.  
- In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup cheddar and 1/4 mozzarella cheeses, mix and sprinkle over spaghetti sauce.  You will do the same after you've added all the toppings to the pizza.

- Add your meat preference - in this case I'm using a fat free deli meat, your vegetables and the remaining 1/2 cup cheddar and 1/4 mozzarella cheeses.
- Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, watching over it periodically.  - Allow pizza to cool for a minute or two, cut in half, and both halves in fourths.
- Parties, Dinner, Just Because

- The nutritional facts were calculated using the ingredients listed.  You can use mushrooms anchovies or jalapenos without altering too much of the nutrients.  But items like sausage, ham, bacon or pepperoni will alter them significantly.

- I recommend using a flat baking sheet or pizza stone instead of deep dish pan - It will make it easier to remove and cut.
