This lower-calorie, lower-fat pizza recipe from Weight Watchers “Simply the Best” cookbook is perfect for those of us who are trying to drop a few pounds. All the great pizza flavor we crave without all the guilt!
1 cup skim milk
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 onion, chopped
2 whole cloves
1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
6 cups trimmed cleaned spinach
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 pound refrigerated ready-made pizza crust dough
3 large plum tomatoes, sliced
2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Spray a 15-inch pizza pan with nonstick cooking spray.
2. In a large nonstick saucepan, combine 2 tablespoons of the milk with the flour; stir until smooth. Stir in the remaining milk, the onion, cloves, nutmeg and pepper. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture boils and thickens, about 4 minutes. Remove from the heat; discard the cloves. Add the spinach and Parmesan cheese; stir until the spinach is moistened and slightly wilted.
3. Press the pizza dough into the bottom of the pan; pinch the edge to form a rim. Spread the spinach mixture evenly over the dough. Top with the tomatoes and the mozzarella cheese. Bake until the crust is browned and the cheese is golden, 12 to 15 minutes.
