Figure Friendly Friday: Spinach, Pepper & Alfredo Pizza

Are you ready for another Figure Friendly Friday?

You must know how much I love my Friday Night Pizza Nights.  And if you don't, well I do!  I'm not about to give up my pizza nights.  After all, I don't believe in deprivation, only healthier eating.

Here's the "rules":
This linky party will be for recipes that come in under 500 calories.  Recipes or methods from desserts to soups and everything in between.  However, if your recipe does not fit the 500 calorie goal, I'll have to delete it.  There are a couple of free calorie counters, but I really like sparkrecipes.com.  Please list the calories per serving somewhere in the recipe for everyone to see.  Also, please link back to Family Stamping and FOOD! and be sure to visit the other participants.

I'm hoping for a successful linky party so let your friends know!

Here's this week's Figure Friendly Friday submission:

Spinach, Pepper and Alfredo Pizza
1 high fiber whole wheat tortilla (such as Ole Mexican Foods Xtreme Wellness)
2 Tbsp reduced calorie Alfredo sauce 
1/2 cup fresh spinach, chopped
1/4 cup sliced mixed bell pepper strips, charred (about 1/2 a pepper sliced)
1/4 cup fat free shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.  Toast tortillas on oven racks until tortilla blisters, about 2 minutes.  Remove tortilla to baking sheet and top with Alfredo sauce.  Top with bell pepper strips, fresh spinach and cheese.  Bake at 425 degrees F for 3-5 minutes until cheese is melted and edges of tortilla are golden.

Serving size is one tortilla.

222 calories, 23 carbs, 6 gr fat, 18 gr protein
You can easily double this recipe to eat 2 tortillas and STILL be under 500 calories!

Yes, I do this and it's super filling and yummy!
