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?
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!
- 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!
