"You better cut the pizza in four pieces because I'm not hungry enough to eat six."
-Yogi Berra, Baseball great

The refrigerator light goes on...

I had been a little skeptical about making quick pizzas. I have been working on a number of different options and this one was one of the first. Honestly, I didnít think that it was going to be all that great but I really was wrong. This is a darn good pizza!

Reduced-fat Pepperoni

For my Pepperoni Pizza, look for the reduced-fat Turkey Pepperoni. This is a much healthier product, with 17 slices having only 4 grams of fat and a 1.5 grams of saturated fat. Regular pepperoni has 13 grams of fat and 6.3 grams of saturated fat. This recipe calls for half of that serving.

As with any preserved meat, pepperoni has a lot of salt. Both the regular and reduced-fat versions have 600 mg of sodium in 17 slices.

17 slices reduced-fat pepperoni = 80 calories, 4g fat, 1.5g sat fat, 0g mono fat, 9g protein, 0g carbohydrates, 600mg sodium, 40mg cholesterol

This recipe can be multiplied by 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12.

This recipe does not make very good leftovers.

1 whole wheat or gluten-free pita bread
3 Tbsp tomato sauce of your choice
8 slices reduced-fat turkey pepperoni
1 1/2 ounces part-skim milk mozzarella (finely shredded)

Place a cookie sheet in the oven and preheat to 325įF.

When the oven is hot spread the tomato sauce on one side of the pita bread. Top with the pepperoni and then the mozzarella.

Place each of the pizzas you make on the cookie sheet in the oven.

It will take between 7 and 10 minutes for the pizza to cook depending on your oven. Keep a close eye on the pizzas and when the cheese is melted and bubbly the pizza is done.
