The Biggest Loser Cookbook

Ok, So I'm not usually one to buy into "diet" books. I hate most foods that are good for you. I feel like "good for you" food is usually boring and cardboard like. However, I've decided I Love this one and thought I'd share a recipe from it with you. I've learned that there are some "good for you foods" that I could actually enjoy eating!

The recipe is pizza. Here's the fun part...

Brown ground turkey or chicken with onions
dice bell peppers of all colors
brown turkey bacon (yes, turkey bacon)
pizza sauce
Whole Grain soft Tortilla Shells
shredded mozarella cheese

1. 8" Whole grain soft Tortilla Shells (bake them @ 400 degrees for 2 minutes on each side)-this is the pizza crust.
2. top with 2 TBSP pizza sauce
3. top with any variety of the above pre-prepared toppings

Bake @ 400 degrees until the cheese is melted.
cut and eat!

My kids loved it, and so did I!

I have made several adjustments to the recipe as it is written in the origional book, but just thought I'd share this one with you. I know Turkey bacon sounds yucky but give it a fair is REALLY good.


PS They also suggest substituting toasted whole grain english muffins for hamburger buns. MMMHHHMMMM!!!
