Green Pizza, Serves 2


  • 2 whole wheat tortilla crust
  • 1/3 cup pesto
  • ½ cup low-fat shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 whole garlic
  • 4 baby portobello mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 bell pepper, stems removed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Garnish: handful of arugula leaves.


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. On a lined baking sheet, place bell pepper cut in half facing down and drizzle ½ tbsp olive oil and salt and pepper on top. Cut the top off the head of garlic while leaving the peel on, rub olive oil on top and wrap in aluminum foil. Place garlic on the same baking sheet as bell pepper and bake for 40 minutes.
  3. While bell pepper and garlic are cooking, heat a pan with 1 tsp olive oil over medium-low heat. Place tortilla in pan, coating in olive oil.  Cook for 3-5 minutes on each side or until golden. Let cool on a plate.
  4. When the bell pepper and garlic are finished cooking, let cool until handling. When cooled, remove garlic from peel by gently putting pressure on the bottoms of cloves so that they slide out of the peel. Slice bell peppers in thin slices.
  5. Top tortillas with pesto, mozzarella cheese, portobello mushrooms, roasted garlic cloves and bell pepper. Cook on lined baking sheet for 10 minutes. Garnish with fresh arugula leaves. Enjoy!
