Suggested Recipe: Grilled Caprese Salad Pizza

Hello everyone,

Today is #FoodFriday!

In the quest for healthy eating, I’ve come across this recipe that I would like to share with all you.

Grilled Caprese Salad from the Good Housekeeping website.

With the cost of food getting higher, I always try to find recipes with minimal ingredients to lower the cost for grocery. Let’s just say this recipe is great!

Are you always finding reasons to go out on a Friday night because you want to eat something quick? Well if you are watching your diet, this recipe will do the trick.

It is delicious and feels like a cheat meal and it’s not hard to make.

In this recipe, they are using a fresh pizza dough, but if you’re in a rush or don’t want to spend too much time, you can use Pitas or greek flatbread and it will taste as amazing and most likely fewer calories. I am not a professional dietician, but I think this pizza is a pretty good alternative to that greasy pizza we get from the pizzeria, PLUS it looks and tastes fresh!

Ingredients needed for this recipe:

  • 1 lb. mixed tomatoes
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 tsp. olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • pepper
  • ¼ c. Fresh basil
  • flour
  • 1 lb. pizza dough (thawed, if frozen)
    (you can use the alternative I’ve mentioned above instead)
  • 4 oz. part-skim mozzarella
  • 3 c. arugula
  • Shaved Parmesan

If you ever try this recipe, I would love to know your thoughts!

All the best,
