This Skinny Flatbread Taco Pizza is an easy and healthier alternative, with only 6 Weight Watchers points per serving, and as delicious as a traditional pizza.
Oftentimes I get comments and emails asking how many weight watchers points my recipes are. While I don’t currently follow a points system, I did many years ago, so it’s always interesting to convert for my readers.
I decided it was high time to feature a recipe just for them, one that is beyond delicious and one that will be enjoyed time and again. This skinny flatbread taco pizza has only 6 weight watcher points per serving, and is a healthy version of a classic favourite.
You truly don’t need to be following points to enjoy this recipe. Perhaps after all that indulging after the holidays, you need just a healthier recipe here and there.
That’s where I’m at right now anyway. I look for simple swaps to enjoy my all time faves, guilt not included.
Consider this recipe as a welcome addition to a family of smart options to satisfy those cravings without being the fully loaded version.
Skinny Taco Pizza Ingredients
For this recipe, I use the Flatout Artisan Flatbread Crust. It has 4 Weight Watchers Smartpoints and is just 120 calories. It’s baked a little before the toppings, to get that crispy pizza-like crunch too.
This recipe also has ground turkey, taco seasoning, fat free refried beans as a swap from heavy traditional sauce, low fat cheese, lettuce, tomato and light sour cream.
This recipe serves two people, and because it’s so protein focused, is super filling. They are ready in 30 minutes, so they make for a quick lunch or dinner.
It’s just a tasty version of pizza that would also be great to serve to guests. Sometimes an array of appetizers are all calorie heavy and rich – so a lighter option on the table is most welcome among the crowd.
Sometimes eating healthier fails because of the thought and time involved in preparation. Not this recipe, it’s simple and quick – no time to talk yourself into opting for anything quicker – like takeout!
So, enjoy this healthier version of everyone’s favourite. We certainly do!
- • 1 Flatout artisan flatbread crust
- • ½ lb fat-free ground turkey
- • 2-3 tsp taco seasoning
- • ½ cup fat-free refried beans
- • 1/3 cup low-fat Mexican blend shredded cheese
- • ½ cup shredded lettuce (I used Romaine)
- • ½ cup tomato, finely chopped
- • ¼ cup light sour cream
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Sauté the ground turkey until fully cooked, adding in 2-3 teaspoons of taco seasoning and 3 teaspoons of water to coat turkey mixture.
Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray, and place the Flatout crust on it. Bake for 3 minutes and then flip the crust over to bake another 3 minutes.
Remove flatbread from the oven and evenly spread refried beans, then spoon the meat mixture on top, and sprinkle the top with shredded cheese.
Bake for about 5 minutes until cheese is melted.
Remove from the oven and top with shredded lettuce, tomatoes and drizzle with sour cream.
Cut into slices and enjoy!
