Grilled Roasted Pepper, Red Onion, and Mozzarella Pizzas
South Beach diet
Makes 4 servings
Buying tomato sauce and roasted peppers at the supermarket makes easy work of these crispy pizzas. Make sure you slice the onion very thin, which allows it to impart its flavor without overwhelming the other toppings. If you like, add a sprinkling of any fresh herbs you have on hand just before serving, and be sure to break out the red pepper flakes for those who prefer some heat.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
4 (8-inch) whole-wheat tortillas
1/4 cup canned tomato sauce
4 ounces shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (1 cup)
1/2 cup roasted red pepper (from a jar), cut into 1/4-inch-wide strips
1/2 small red onion, very thinly sliced
1/8 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Lightly coat a grill or grill pan with cooking spray and heat to medium-high. Grill tortillas until lightly puffed and browned on the bottom, about 1 minute. Transfer to a cutting board, grilled side up. Spread tortillas evenly with tomato sauce and top with equal portions of cheese, red pepper, and onion.
Return pizzas to the grill, topping side up. Cover and cook until cheese is melted, about 1 minute. Transfer pizzas to 4 plates, sprinkle with salt, and season with black pepper to taste. Serve hot.
