Oroweat Sandwich Thins Pizza

Posted by Lori:
Have you tried the new Oroweat Sandwich Thins? They are healthy, low fat, and low cal (100 calories for both pieces), but they also taste great. Their texture makes them seem very filling - much more so than just a regular slice of bread.

On Tuesdays our local grocery store sells mini pizzas for $1.99. A few times a month we order the pizzas for the kids and take them to school for their lunch. I guess last week when I was ordering theirs, it made me crave pizza, too, so I figured out a healthy variety for myself for lunch that day. The mini pizza was great!


1 Oroweat Sandwich Thin (I used whole wheat)
2 tablespoons pizza sauce
2 slices Canadian bacon, cut in small pieces
1/4 c. shredded mozzarella (I didn't have low fat at the time.)

Seperate the sandwich thin into the two pieces. Spread 1 tablespoon pizza sauce on each piece. Top with Canadian bacon and cheese (or cheese and then Canadian bacon - depending on your preference.) Bake at 350 degrees on small cookie sheet for 10 - 15 minutes. TOTAL: CALORIES-215; FAT-6.5 grams (would be less w/low-fat cheese).

When these pizzas first came out of the oven I folded them in half to make them easier to eat walking around the house straightening up. The cheese caused it to stick together and it was so thin it made it's own little "pizza pocket"!

I first found out about these sandwich thins while visiting my sister, Kimberly in Lubbock, Texas. Unfortunately, when I got back to Oklahoma, I couldn't find them in our closest supermarkets. Since then I've found them about an hour away. Can you find them near you? If so, try these healthier mini pizzas!

I made something very similar with these tonight!! I broke the sandwich thin in half and used each half as a pizza crust. Then I put 1/4 cup of fat free kraft cheese on each and pasta sauce. I also added two turkey pepperonis to both. It came out to 230 calories for both pizzas!!
