Spinach No-Bread Pizza

A few nights ago, I was short on my veggies for the day, and so I thought, "Hmmm, I want to eat spinach, but how can I jazz it up?" So, I nuked some garlic and tomatoes with the frozen chopped spinach and got this:

Then, as I was eating it, I thought, "Hey, these are basically the toppings for a great spinach pizza!" So, I added some mozzarella:

Voila! Spinach No-Bread Pizza!


2-1/4 Cups frozen spinach, measure it before it's cooked, 68 calories
1 to 1-1/2 tsp. minced garlic, 4 calories
1 roma tomato, chopped, 21 calories
1.25 oz. (or 5 Tablespoons) shredded/grated mozzarella cheese, 100 calories

Total calories - 193 calories. Eat it as-is, or with whole-grain, reduced fat crackers like Triscuits, and you have a meal for about 310 calories!!

P.S. Audrey - the challenge to review your summer goals, worth 10 points, are we counting that in this session, or did that get stuck in last week's points?


  1. You could also put this on a whole wheat flat bread and broil it in the oven. Can't wait to try it!
