Mediterranean Pizza

Most of the time, what ingredients you chose to use in your recipes really makes a difference when it comes to the nutritional values.  When you buy canned foods try to makes sure that it's packed in water or juice, not oil or syrup.  It can really rack up the calories and fat.  It might take a little extra time when you're out shopping, but compare the labels and make sure that you are getting the most nutritional ingredients you can.
 
This is a simple little recipe, it doesn't really require much prep work.  It's a delicious twist on a regular pizza.  The trick to keeping it lower in calories and fat is to really pay attention to what you are using to make it.  I made notes in the ingredients so you know what I used, but of course you're welcomed to make it your own!
 

Ingredients


    1 mini flat bread (I used Flat Out Mini with Whole Grains)
    2 tablespoons hummus (I used my homemade hummus)
    1/4 cup chopped red peppers
    2 tablespoons sliced black olives
    4 pieces of canned artichoke hearts packed in water
    1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

    Directions

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
    Spread the hummus over the flat bread, then top with the peppers, olives, artichoke hearts and cheese. Bake for about ten minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
