Spicy Mexican Thin Crust Pizza

I've been on a total pizza kick ever since I bought these La Tortilla Factory tortillas. If any of you know of an even better brand please let me know! ^_^ These are good, but on their own I think you could tell the tortilla is "healthy" ;)

These would be fun to make with the family since they come together so easily, and all that needs cleaning up afterward is your knife and cutting board.

Spicy Mexican Thin Crust Pizza
  • 1 Low Carb Tortilla (50 calories, 3 carbs)
  • 30 grams Pizza Sauce (6 calories) I used my homemade spicy sauce
  • 1 Low Fat String Cheese, shredded (80 calories)
  • 1 tsp Jalapeno, finely minced
  • 16 grams Pepperoni (62 calories)
  • Avocado, diced (69 calories)
Preparation & Cooking Instructions

Preheat oven to 400F. While the oven is preheating place your tortilla on a parchment lined baking sheet and allow to crisp up. I made my own "spicy cheese" by shredding a stick of string cheese and adding in minced jalapeno. It worked really well, and the cheese melted nicely. Use mozzarella if you have it, or pepper jack. Once the tortilla has crisped up and the oven is ready to go, flip the tortilla over and top with everything expect the avocado. I baked this for 12 minutes to make sure the cheese melted. Top with fresh avocado and enjoy. This would also be great piled high with shredded lettuce and tomato, then topped with hot sauce. Enjoy this guilt free individual pizza for only 267 calories, and 4 grams of carbohydrates!
