English: Preparation of chapati

1 each frozen bread dough, thawed
6 tablespoons marinara sauce, jarred
1 each bell pepper, chopped
2 each Portobello mushroom caps, chopped
1 each onion, chopped
8 ounces mozzarella cheese, part skim milk, shredded
6 tablespoons ricotta cheese
1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1. Divide dough into 6 even pieces. Each piece is going to make an individual pizza. Shape the dough into desired shape and thickness for pizza. Use all-purpose flour to roll out dough if needed. Preheat oven to 450.

2. Begin layering items on dough as follows: ricotta, marinara, pepper, mushrooms, onion and mozzarella.

3. Place on a baking sheet sprayed with olive oil spray. Bake until crust is crisp.

Servings: 6
Yield: 6 mini pizzas

Notes: You can buy frozen bread rolls if you don’t want to buy a whole frozen bread loaf and it is easier for single people or smaller families to make pizzas that way.

You can add more veggies and marinara sauce without affecting the calorie count much. (If you want sauteed veggies or olives, add them!) If you add meat, you’re going to add calories so be careful. You can remove like 25 calories by removing the ricotta, but that is not many calories and most meat is more calories than that. That’s why I chose the ricotta. It’s a lot of bang for the buck calorie-wise.

The all-purpose flour adds some calories but not the amount shown in this recipe. You’re not really using the whole amount. You’re using it to roll out and keep your dough from sticking. It’s not like you dumped the whole thing in. I would say the calories on this is more like 376 instead of 395.

About Amy

Recently I came to an ugly realization–I am middle aged. I didn’t really think so but then I doubled my age and thought, “Hmmmm…some of people don’t live to that age. I must be middle age.” This epiphany came in the third quarter of my 39th year. So I am surviving middle age…it’s scary.

  1. Thank you for the link to my blog.

  2. I do love me some homemade pizza…have you tried bbq chicken pizza? Sub bbq sauce for regular sauce, put some shredded chicken, onions, and mushrooms on it, top with a little cheddar cheese..yummo!!

    • i have. it always throws my tastes off a little, though. another thing i did try was some alfredo sauce (tiny amount) as well as tons of cooked spinach with grilled chicken and tiny amount of mozzarella. really good.
