Guilt-Free Pizza

Finally, a healthy pizza that I can enjoy absolutely guilt-free!! I can't wait to experiment with different kinds of toppings!

1 gluten free tortilla shell (I used Food for Life Brown Rice Tortillas)
1/4 cup homemade pizza sauce (see below for a simple, healthy and delicious recipe)
2 mushrooms, washed and sliced
Small handful of baby spinach
1/2 tbsp sliced black olives
1/4 cup grated light mozzarella cheese (about 15g)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Meanwhile, take a tortilla shell out of the freezer (I let it sit out while the oven was preheating so it was mostly thawed when I was ready to use it). Top the shell with pizza sauce, toppings and finish with the grated cheese. Bake on a round pizza pan for 7 minutes and enjoy!!

To prepare the pizza sauce, combine the following ingredients. This makes about 1 cup of sauce. If you don't have all the spices I listed below you could try Italian seasoning instead.

Homemade Pizza Sauce:
1 - 5.5 oz can tomato paste
1/3 cup water
1 tbsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp dried parsley
Sprinkle of dried thyme, rosemary, ground sage and fresh ground pepper
