Have Your Pizza and Eat it too! Low Cal Red Pepper + Fontina Balsamic Pizza

20 Jan

What do you get when you combine roasted red peppers, shallots, bacon, garlic,  and fontina cheese with a BALSAMIC GLAZE?


A Sweet and Savory delicious guilt free pizza, that’s what!

I’m on a major balsamic vinegar kick lately and I found this yummy recipe on How Sweet it is for Red Pepper Fontina pizza with a balsamic glaze and of course I had to whip this up “piggy style”!

So first thing I did was “De-Calorize” the original recipe substituting flat-out bread for the crust and turkey bacon.

Low Cal Flat out bread, Turkey Bacon, Roasted Red Peppers (jarred) Shallots, Balsamic Glaze, Fontina

Pizza (yields 2)

2 pieces flat-out bread

4 slices turkey bacon

2 shallots, thinly sliced

2 roasted red peppers, cut into strips (jar)

1 tablespoons olive oil

2 garlic cloves, minced or pressed

2 slices deli fontina (don’t go crazy with the fontina-not L Cal)

grated reduced fat parm

Gia Russa balsamic glaze

Cook turkey bacon in microwave, cut into bite size pieces. Heat some olive oil, add shallots till caramelized. While shallots are cooking, pat jarred red peppers dry and slice.

Turn oven on broil.

Brush olive oil on flat-out bread, sprinkle garlic, top with shallots, red peppers and bacon. Tear one slice of the fontina into pieces and evenly distribute on each flat-out bread, sprinkle a little reduced fat parm if ya like.

Broil until cheese is melted and flat-out edges are curled up.

And finally the best part… the balsamic glaze ( a balsamic glaze is the beautiful end result of reducing down balsamic vinegar).

Sprinkle the glaze on top of the pizza.

This pizza is completely yummy and makes a great “I don’t wanna feel deprived of pizza” kinda meal:)
