Pesto Flatbread Pizza Recipe – Only 8 Points Plus!

The only food I’m totally obsessed with even more than pancakes is pizza. I could literally eat pizza daily, and I needed to find a lighter version so I wasn’t blowing all of my points plus on one slice of pepperoni pizza from a take out place! Thus, the Pesto Flatbread Pizza was born.

And all was right in the world.

      This looks amazing! I can see this with some red pepper and red onions along with the mushrooms. With meals like this (where I am piling on loads of veggies that aren’t really part of a “recipe”), I usually calculate the Points+ by excluding the zero Points+ veggies in the calculations. That way I can load it up with no guilt.

      By the way I highly recommend checking out Freckleberry Finds (see her note above). It’s a great site and Ashley has a very motivating story – great recipes :).

        Ashley does have a great site :). She’s who inspired me to join Weight Watchers again, and why I asked her to guest post on here. I agree with you on the veggies. I love being able to pile up my favorite ones and eat guilt free! So nice to “meet” you Julie!

    I made this tonight for dinner. I used 1/4 cup of cheese and Racconto Traditional Basil Pesto and got the pizza down to 6 points plus! It was really good and I was so excited to be able to eat the whole thing. It kind of felt like I was cheating on my diet =)

      That is awesome Rachael! Anytime I am craving pizza I make this. It is filling and really yummy! I add a little extra cheese because I am a cheese kinda girl!

    If anyone has a superstore near them or Loblaws etc. In the organic section they have frozen flatbread pizza crust made out of flaxseed.
