Welcome to our delightful culinary corner, where taste meets health in perfect harmony! As an avid Weight Watcher, I am thrilled to share with you a scrumptious recipe that will tantalize your taste buds and keep you on track with your wellness journey - Crispy Air Fryer Tortilla Pizza!
- One 6 inch Low Carb Flour Tortilla
- 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (Low Fat or Fate Free)
- 2 Tablespoons of Part Skim Ricotta Cheese or Whipped Cottage Cheese
- 1 Tablespoon of Pizza Sauce
- Grilled Veggies or Mini Pepperoni slices optional for topping.
- Olive Oil Spray
- Take your tortilla and toast it over the flame on your stove or in a toaster to get it slightly crispy.
- Grab your silicone air fryer liner and give it a spritz of olive oil, then place your toasted tortilla in the liner.
- Spread 2 tablespoons of ricotta cheese on your tortilla.
- Add a layer of your favorite roasted veggie ( I used grilled zucchini).
- Now add a tablespoon of your favorite sauce and sprinkle with shredded cheese.
- Add a couple of pieces of fresh basil on top and place in your air fryer.
- Cook for 6-10 minutes at 390 degrees F until crispy. Remove and serve.
- Choose Whole Wheat Tortillas: Opt for whole wheat or multigrain tortillas instead of refined flour tortillas to increase fiber content and nutritional value.
- Preheat the Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to ensure even cooking and a crispy crust.
- Use Cooking Spray: Lightly spray the air fryer basket or the tortilla with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
- Go Easy on Sauce: Use a moderate amount of tomato sauce to avoid making the crust soggy. You can also try using a low-calorie or sugar-free pizza sauce.
- Add Lean Proteins: Use lean proteins like grilled chicken, turkey, or shrimp instead of fatty meats like pepperoni or sausage.
- Load Up on Veggies: Load your pizza with colorful and nutritious vegetables like bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, spinach, and mushrooms. These add flavor and bulk without many calories.
- Watch the Cheese: Cheese can quickly add calories, so use a light hand. Opt for reduced-fat or part-skim mozzarella or try alternatives like feta or goat cheese for a tangy twist.
- Incorporate Herbs and Spices: Enhance the flavor of your pizza with a variety of herbs and spices, such as basil, oregano, garlic powder, or red pepper flakes.
- Precook Dense Veggies: To ensure that vegetables like broccoli or cauliflower cook thoroughly, consider giving them a quick blanch or roast before adding them to the pizza.
