Craving an easy, low fat pizza replacement? I prefer these pizzas over anything they offer at a restaurant. Serve it on its own or couple it with a delicious bowl of Minestrone Soup. If you want a cheesy pizza you can add nutritional yeast or Daiya cheese to the top, however, it’s just great without it.
