Pizza! PIzza!

A pizza post? Indeed. I came across this recipe on, and I think it looks really tasty. I think kids would go for it too.

Healthy Pizza Roll Ups
(Photo from
1 8 inch whole wheat tortilla or wrap (might I suggest the La Tortilla Factory Low Carb Tortillas or the Whole Wheat Flat out Wraps)
2 TBS prepared pizza sauce
12 leaves of baby spinach
3 TBS part skim mozzarella cheese

Place tortilla on a plate and spread pizza sauce all over it. Top with an even layer of spinach and sprinkle cheese all over it. Microwave on high for about 45 seconds, until cheese is just melted. Carefully roll the tortilla up. Let cool before slicing it into sections.

(*These nutrition facts are based on using the La Tortilla Factory Low Carb Tortilla, which bumps up the fiber and protein a TON.)

The recipe suggests that you could make these as far as a day in advance and pack them in a lunch to eat on the go if needed. A great school lunch or even work lunch idea!
