A few days ago I posted about Lavash Bread on my weight loss blog. When I read the comments I laughed out loud as people suggested I use it to make pizza and said “I know you will love it.”

First of all my, readers REALLY know me and second, it was the first thing I thought of when I saw it in the store!

So coming home from the gym I remembered I defrosted a turkey sausage and I was all prepared to make an Overstuffed Sausage and Pepper Wrap when I remembered the Lavash bread! Then I thought PIZZA! (Much like that old Beggin Strips commercial, just replace the dog with me and the bacon with pizza – that should leave you with a nice mental picture)

My initial thought was a meat-lovers but upon seeing all the meats in the skillet I decided there needed to be some color! Which one looks healthier to you?

Only meatMeat with Veggies

So I ditched meat-lovers and went supreme! Now I’m going to tell you how I made it but remember, take it and run! Use what ya got! My goal was as light as I could make a huge supreme pizza with all the meats!Supreme Pizza on Lavash Bread

  • 1 large piece of Lavash bread or flat bread (like Joeseph’s)
  • 1 turkey sausage link
  • 1 tbsp real bacon bits (7g)
  • 1 thin slice of deli ham chopped
  • 4 small turkey pepperoni slices chopped
  • 2 florets of broccoli cut up
  • ¼ of an orange pepper chopped
  • handful of baby spinach chopped
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • sprinkle each of, Kosher salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, dried basil, and dried parsley
  • 1 ½ oz of shredded mozzarella (preferably fancy shredded but I didn’t have any)

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Lay the Lavash bread on a sheet of aluminum foil. Cook in the oven for about 5 minutes until crisp. The edges will just start to brown.

Remove the skin on the sausage and cook up in a small no-stick frying pan. Break apart the meat it will want to stick together. Brown for about 2-3 minutes. Add the bacon bits, ham and pepperoni. Stir to combine flavors. Add the broccoli, peppers and spinach. Cook for about 1 minute and remove from heat.

Smear the tomato paste on the crispy Lavash bread. Sprinkle with all the spices. Spread with meat-veggie mixture. Top with the cheese. Sprinkle a bit of parsley and return to the oven for 5 minutes. Serve!

Now the serving is HUGE! What you see in the main picture (by the ingredients) is ¼ of the pizza. I’m going to count the whole “pie” as 1 serving because I ate the whole thing but if you wanted to go lighter you could split it with someone and add a salad on the side. It would be very satisfying!

    I eat the whole thing when I make it too. It’s normally about 8 points. I make mine with a mix of fat free and 2% cheese, and I add tons of mushrooms, tomatoes, and onions. Sometimes I put ground turkey or turkey pepperoni. I LOVE it!

    That looks delish! I am going to have to find that bread this weekend. It would be a quick weeknight meal when I don’t have time to make dough from scratch.

    Love the new changes on your site :O)

    Wow, nine points for a full serving isn’t even that bad if you consider two regular slices of pizza are 10 points, and here you get WAY more!

    Well it would be 2 for the bread 3 for the cheese and I’d add a point for sauce. 6 is a good bet! That’s what I usually count it as. :~)

    This is terrific. It is so fulfilling and yet low in points for a meal. I’ve made it without the meat and used spinach, sundried tomatoes, peppers and onions. It is delicious.

    This bread is also great to make a light burrito. Use 1/2 lb lean ground beef or turkey, 1/2 cup of Salsa, 1/4 cup shredded cheese and 1 can of black beans. Brown the meat, add drained and rinsed black beans, salsa and cheese. Roll in Lavash bread. I brown mine slightly in a skillet using cooking spray. Delish. I was hopeing to find a pizza recipe for the bread. Thanks
