Ingredients:

  • 4 slices whole grain bread (choose a low-point option, such as light whole grain bread)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce (choose a low-point option, such as a no-sugar-added or light marinara sauce)
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • Your favorite pizza toppings (such as sliced bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, olives, or lean protein like turkey pepperoni or grilled chicken breast)
  • Salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning, to taste
  • Fresh basil leaves, chopped, for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly coat it with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the minced garlic and olive oil. Stir to mix well.
  3. Place the slices of whole grain bread on the prepared baking sheet. Using a pastry brush or spoon, spread the garlic-infused olive oil evenly over each slice of bread.
  4. Spread a thin layer of marinara sauce over each slice of bread, leaving a small border around the edges.
  5. Sprinkle shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese evenly over the marinara sauce on each slice of bread.
  6. Add your favorite pizza toppings over the cheese layer. Be mindful of portion sizes and choose lean protein and plenty of vegetables to keep the points low.
  7. Season the pizzas with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning to taste.
  8. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly and the edges of the bread are golden brown.
  9. Remove the garlic bread pizzas from the oven and let them cool slightly before slicing.
  10. Garnish with chopped fresh basil leaves, if desired, before serving.
