Pizza snack bread was one of my favorite snacks when I first started my weight loss journey. It still is one of my favorites. I didn’t want to dive into pizza for a snack, so I needed something to cure the temptations- but in a healthier way. My willpower wasn’t the best back then and I didn’t want to blow my progress. Plus, you can buy a loaf of bread, a can of pizza sauce, and a bag of cheese for less than $7.00 and get a lot of pizza bread snacks out of it. When I was younger, I was all about the cheap fixes. Anyone can make these; you don’t need any cooking skills whatsoever. This snack is a great source of protein and fiber. It’s low carb and low calorie.
Ingredients: *1/4 Cup Cheese (my choice), *2 Slices Whole Grain Bread, (100% Natural Healthy Life 35 Calorie Bread. ) *1/4 Cup Pizza Sauce, (my choice) * Dried Basil
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Place bread slices on non-stick baking sheet.
3. Top with pizza sauce, cheese, and basil.
**You can add extra toppings like peppers, onion, mushroom, pepperoni, chicken….etc. Get creative with it!
4. Bake until cheese is fully cooked.
**If you are in a dorm room, or do not have access to an oven, you can make these the same way as a grilled cheese sandwich. You’ll just have to place the pieces of bread together. I bet they taste great made with a panini maker, too!
