Written by Sky Taylor, Diet Bites

Craving a pizza with pizzazz while dieting?  

This luscious little lovely might harness those taste buds and keep you frolicking through the wildflowers of Diet Land with a smile on your lips.

The Ingredients for Low Calorie, Lower Fat Pizza

1 hoagie bun or French bread cut in half (careful!).  Aim for a calorie content of 150 calories.

About 1/2 cup of your favorite marinara sauce. Aim for about 35 calories.

2 slices of skim mozzarella cheese.  Aim for 50 calories per slice for a total of 100 calories.

Non-stick butter spray.

How to Prepare Our Lower Calorie Pizza

Spray non-stick pan with butter spray. Next, spray the non-crusted side of the bread with butter spray and place carefully onto warm pan.


Allow it to toast on a slow heat so that you achieve a nice, buttery, crunchy, crusty layer on your bread. Crusty can be good!

Remove and place onto a plate. Top the toasted side with piping hot marinara sauce. You'll want your sauce hot so that it will melt the cheese.  


"What diet?"




If you require a more melty cheese, then pop into the microwave for just a few seconds to allow cheese to melt more.

Fold mozzarella cheese in half and place two slices on each toasted bread.

The total calories for this delicious pizza bread is about 285 calories.
