Cheeseburger Pizza

Who says eating healthy isn’t super yummy and delicious!? Make smarter choices and enjoy all of your favs! I used Greek yogurt, lean beef and a better crust choice than the traditional pizza and voila! I get to eat one of my favorite things and my jeans still fit! Awesome!

What you will need:

Crust-thin or whole wheat

Meat-ground turkey, lean or extra lean ground beef (1/2 lb)

Sauce: 3/4 c plain Greek yogurt, 2 tsp spicy brown mustard, 2 tsp ketchup, 2 tsp hot sauce, pepper and red pepper flakes to your liking

Toppings: chopped onions, pickles, tomatoes

Cheese: 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella or Colby jack cheese-the less cheese the better so go easy

Bake according to the crust instructions.

ENJOY!!!!
