Ordering a supreme pizza for delivery is an open invitation for caloric calamity. Best-case scenario, you’re looking at 250 calories a slice; worst case, 500 or more. Here, we use Boboli’s whole-wheat thin crust shell as a low-cal, fiber-rich base. We then load the pizza with a team of nutritional all-stars (red peppers, artichokes, fresh basil) and a good amount of turkey pepperoni. Torn deli ham or Canadian bacon would also work great here.

Ingredients


Makes 4 servings

12" Boboli whole-wheat thin pizza crust
1 cup tomato-basil pasta sauce (we like Muir Glen)
2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella
15 slices turkey pepperoni
1⁄2 cup sliced onion
1⁄2 cup chopped roasted red peppers
1⁄2 cup chopped green olives
2 cloves garlic, minced
1⁄2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 jar (6 oz) artichoke hearts, drained
1 cup fresh basil leaves (optional)

HOW TO MAKE IT


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Cover the crust with sauce and then cheese. Sprinkle with the pepperoni, onion, peppers, olives, garlic, pepper flakes, and artichokes.

Step 2

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbling. Top with the basil (if using) and serve immediately.

Secret Weapon

Boboli Whole-Wheat Crust
For years, Boboli has provided time-starved Americans with an alternative to delivery pizza. Problem is, most Americans opt for Boboli’s regular crust, which is thick and doughy and thus overloaded with calories and carbs. Thankfully, they offer a whole-wheat, thin-crust alternative that not only reduces calories, but also boosts fiber, maximizing the satiating effect of the pizza. If you’d rather make personal pizzas, try whole wheat English muffins or perfectly thin pita bread.
