Meatless Monday: Personal Tortilla Pizzas

Meatless Monday: Personal Tortilla Pizza
Soooooo let's talk pizza - it's gooey, it's cheesy, it's tasty, it's delicious - it's fattening. I don't know about you but I can't just eat ONE slice of pizza so keeping my portions under control doesn't cut it when it comes to chowin' down on the 'za. I look for lighter pizza alternatives all the time but it usually ends up saying "serving size: one slice" and I end up eating 3. 

I made this mini, personal pizza based off a Weight Watchers recipe that I found last week. It's gooey, it's cheesy, it's tasty, it's delicious - it's only 8 POINTS. I didn't want to reach for my slices since my mini pie allowed for four and I was full and satisfied! 

Personal Tortilla Pizza
Serves: 1, Servings Size: 1 pizza PointsPlus: 8
Ingredients:
  • 4-oz. mushrooms (I used a mixture of baby bella and shiitakes)
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • Cooking spray
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 medium whole wheat tortilla (I used Mission brand)
  • 2 tbsp pizza sauce
  • 1 slice 2% provolone cheese
  • 1-oz. crumble goat cheese
  • 1 tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Directions:
  • Preheat the oven to 450. Put mushrooms and shallot in a baking sheet coated with cooking spray, tossing to coat, and season with salt and pepper. Roast for at least 30 minutes or until shallots are caramelized
  • Spray another baking sheet with cooking spray and place your tortilla on it. Once the mushrooms and shallot have about 10 minutes left of roasting time, add the tortilla to the oven to crisp
    • It took me another pass over the open stove flame to really crisp up the edges of the tortilla and make it crispy crunchy, so you may want to do that
  • When the tortilla is crisped to your desired crispiness, top it with the pizza sauce and spread around, leaving 1/2 inch around the edge. Break up the provolone cheese into little pieces, evenly spreading around the tortilla. Layer with mushrooms and shallots, then with goat cheese and Parmesan cheese, finishing off with salt and pepper
  • Stick the tortilla pizza back into the oven so the cheese gets melty, about 8-10 minutes (keep an eye on it). Bite into crispy pizza and PointsPlus perfection!
