Crab & Broccoli White Flat Bread

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

From our skinny table to yours...

With leftovers galore from Easter we have had our fare share of ham and needed something light and fun tonight!  We eat super healthy but we certainly don't hold back when it comes to holidays.   That doesn't mean we eat everything in sight, but we like to have a small taste of everything.  We live by our favorite 'everything in moderation' motto ;)

Tonight we are putting a spin on the traditional tomato and mozzarella pizza and making a Crab, Tomato & Broccoli White Flat bread!  The flat bread comes from a 100 calorie whole wheat tortilla, which is one of our favorite tricks when it comes to making pizza!  Everyone gets their own pie, which is wonderful for portion control, and it's just more fun!

Take a look at those fresh, healthy and clean ingredients.   We can certainly feel good about sitting down to dinner tonight!   Another added bonus, these are super simple to make and come together in under 20 minutes flat!  We start off by topping our tortilla with a little garlic oil.  To make the oil simply mince up some garlic and saute the garlic in oil olive to infuse the yummy flavor!  We then topped the tortilla with quartered cherry tomatoes and boiled broccoli.  We flavored up the crab meat with freshly squeezed lemon juice and covered both pizzas with fresh and delicious crab meat!  Fresh crab meat can get a little pricey so we recommend purchasing this when it's on sale :)

Now to our favorite part, the cheese!  We have found that when it comes to our tortilla flat bread's two tablespoons of reduced fat cheese is the perfect amount to keep the calories low and to please our cheesy needs.  We topped this off with fresh basil and had ourselves a beautiful and fresh, healthy meal!

Pop this masterpiece in the oven for 5 minutes and you'll be sitting down to eat in no time :)  Wait, we almost forgot to tell you the best part.... this whole pie has only 216 calories!  Dinner in under 20 minutes and under 250 calories, that makes us two happy girls! 

Hope you enjoy this one :)
