Who says you can’t have healthy pizza?
You will need:
100 calorie La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious whole wheat tortilla
Marinara/Pesto sauce (For marinara, I use 1/2 cup of Trader Joe’s No Salt Added/Low Fat Organic marinara sauce, and for pesto I use 2 tablespoons of generic basil pesto)
1/4 cup of reduced fat mozzarella/italian blend cheese
1/2 tablespoon of olive oil
Garlic powder
Basil (fresh or dried)
Spinach, tomatoes, and other assorted veggies
1/4 cup of reduced fat feta (best for the pesto pizza) or parmesan cheese (optional)
Chicken (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Cut up all of your veggies!
Slather the olive oil on your tortilla before placing it on a cookie sheet. Spread the marinara or pesto onto the tortilla. Sprinkle garlic powder to taste. Sprinkle half of the cheese onto your pizza, arrange the veggies/chicken around your pizza, then sprinkle the rest of the cheese (including the optional feta and parmesan)
Bake for approximately 7-10 minutes (or until cheese is bubbling and the bottom of the tortilla is brown and crispy)
Cut and enjoy!

As someone who’s from San Diego, I know just how delicious carne asada fries and California burritos are. I also know just how calorie-filled they are. So I was craving a carne asada fry burrito, and wanted to try and come up with a healthier version. Note: This is a substitution recipe. It is still a pretty high calorie meal, and EXTREMELY filling, so one serving is actually better suited as two meals or a shared meal.
Turkey Asada Fries/Burrito
One small russet potato
Olive oil
Morton’s lite salt
4 ounces of Jennie-O 93/7 lean ground turkey
Bell pepper
Lime juice
La Victoria green taco sauce
Pinto beans
Sargento reduced fat 4 cheese Mexican blend
La Tortilla Factory smart & delicious 100-calorie whole wheat tortilla (optional)
Light sour cream (optional)
Avocado (optional)
Cilantro (optional)
For the french fries: Slice the russet potato lengthwise into medium french fries. Place in a bowl with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and the lite salt, and toss until potato slices are fully covered. Place a piece of tin foil on a baking sheet and spray non-stick spray on the foil. Place the potato pieces on the sheet and bake for 20-30 minutes at 450 degrees.
For the turkey: Spray non-stick cooking spray in a large skillet. Sauté the turkey, bell pepper, lime juice, and green taco sauce until the turkey is fully cooked and gray. 
Boil the pinto beans until fully cooked.
Heat up the tortilla on an open burner, flipping every 20 seconds or so.
Place everything into the tortilla for a fry burrito, or skip the tortilla and enjoy turkey asada fries with a fork.
Normal calorie count for carne asada fries with sour cream and guacamole: 1500 (an extra 130 calories would be added for the tortilla if a fry burrito)Turkey asada fries w/out the tortilla: 620 calories (add an extra 60 for avocado, 30 for light sour cream, and 100 for tortilla)Normal fat grams for carne asada fries: 76gFat grams for turkey asada fries: 29g (add an extra 5 for avocado, 2 for sour cream, and 2 for tortilla)Turkey Asada burrito without the french fries, with avocado and sour cream: 534 calories, 24 grams of fat

Craving bacon? Love a BLT but hate all the fat and calories? Try this low-calorie, vegetarian alternative that uses provolone instead of bacon, and tastes just as delicious!
"I want to love you, PLT!" Sandwich
Reduced fat or low sodium Sargento provolone cheese
Orowheat Healthfull bread (I prefer Hearty Wheat or 10-grain, and they’re only 80 calories a slice!)
Best Foods canola cholesterol-free mayonnaise
Lettuce
Tomato
Super easy and simple to make. Throw two slices of provolone on a frying pan. No oil or non-stick spray needed, because the provolone itself has natural oils to aid in the frying. You’ll hear the provolone starting to pop and you’ll see it starting to “breathe.” Flip over the provolone once you see it’s side starting to brown. Then just toast the bread, put 1 tablespoon of mayo on each slice, then add the fried provolone, lettuce, and tomatoes. Enjoy!
