We all love pizza from the crispy crust to the toppings of meat, veggies, and cheese. Even though it can be a high fat and calorie junk food choice, it can be made with healthier alternatives.
For instance, check out this recipe for a Mega-Meat pizza from Pillsbury.com and its nutrition facts.
Mega Meat Pizza
- 1 can (11 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated thin pizza crust
- 1/2 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
- 1/2 lb bulk Italian sausage
- 1/2 cup pizza sauce
- 1/2 cup sliced pepperoni
- 1 oz thinly sliced deli salami, cut into quarters
- 1/2 cup diced Canadian bacon
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz)
- Heat oven to 400°F. Spray or grease 15x10-inch or larger dark or nonstick cookie sheet. Unroll dough on cookie sheet; starting at center, press out dough into 15x10-inch rectangle.
- In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef and sausage over medium-high heat 6 to 8 minutes, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked and sausage is no longer pink; drain.
- Spread pizza sauce to within 1/2 inch of edges of dough. Top with cooked drained meat and remaining ingredients.
- Bake 13 to 16 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.
