Mexican Pizza

Another one from the Jillian Michaels website (as I suspect a lot of my future posts will be!). It was really good, has lots of possibilities for variation, and well, I could probably eat this every day if I wanted to!

The recipe is for 1 (and yeah, Adam had 3), and made as-is has 364 calories and 12 grams of fat.


1 whole-wheat, low-carb tortilla, 6 1/2 "
3 oz. chicken breast
1/4 cup salsa
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
2 Tbsp. diced green chiles
1 cup spinach
2 Tbsp. low-sodium mozzarella cheese, shredded (I used a low-fat Mexican blend)
1/4 cup avocado, sliced


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.* Spray skillet with non-stick spray and heat over medium. Add bell pepper, green chiles and spinach to the pan, and cook until spinach is wilted.

2. Spread salsa on tortilla and top with chicken and spinach mixture. Sprinkle with cheese and bake until cheese melts. Top with avocado.

* I pre-baked the tortilla a little bit (about 6-7 minutes)before adding the toppings and baking again, to make sure it would be crispy.

Thanks for sharing and can't wait to try the recipe. I have to admit that I make tortilla pizzas at least 2-3 times a week for dinner.

Not sure if you ever tried La Tortilla Factory Low Carb/High Fiber Tortillas. They are only 80cals per tortilla and taste great!

They are a great size for pizza although we use the wraps for all of my meals too – breakfast (egg burritos), lunch (all types of wraps such as turkey, veggie..etc) and dinner although they can be also used for snacks (you just have to get creative).

If you are interested, we list one of my favorite recipes (Italian Veggie Pizza) on our site. It's only 195 calories per pizza if you use the La Tortilla wraps and lifetime cheese (40 cals for 28 grams) although you can swap out any of the ingredients for your own favorite pizza too! :-)

Hope you like the recipe! Thanks for great post and forward to reading more!
