What Tastes Like Pizza but is Dietetic?

Mary Ann Black, one of our clients at the Before and After Weight Loss Clinic in St. Lucie County, Florida, is a fabulous cook and when I met her I immediately liked her. But the real bond has come in sharing our love of cooking and discovering that she used to be a weight loss counselor, too, with a passion for helping people lose weight! So I have invited her to help me with these blogs and our soon-to-be "Lunch with Lee" web site!

Recently, Mary Ann brought us the most wonderful pizza squares that she invented, so I want to share that with you first! They are ON THE DIET! Mary Ann has lost 25 lbs. with our program( I think that is right--I will change the figure tomorrow if I am wrong) and is now on our maintenance program. Way to go! Keep the recipes coming!

Antipasto Squares (Tastes like Pizza!)

Preheat over 375

1 package Low Carb LaTortillas (approx 4 to 6)

Thin sliced Low -Fat meat: Turkey
(approx. 1/4 pound each) Roast Beef
Turkey Pepperoni (95% fat free)

Approximately 4 to 5 slices ea. Swiss cheese

(or any meat/cheese combination you prefer)

1 Jar Roasted Red Peppers, (9 to 10 oz. Jar, cut into bite size pieces)
2 Eggs or 1/2 cup Egg Beaters
1/4 cup grated Parmesan

Spray an 8” x 12” baking dish

Arrange the Tortillas in baking dish to completely cover the bottom, (I cut them in strips and place them on the bottom of the baking dish)

On top of the Tortillas, layer the meat, cheese, meat cheese, etc.

Top the meat/cheese layers with the Roasted Red Peppers

Mix the Eggs or Egg Beaters together with the grated Parmesan cheese and pour about 3/4 over the Roasted Red Peppers

Top with another layer of the Tortillas

Pour the remaining egg/parmesan mixture over the top of the Tortillas and spread evenly

Bake uncovered for 25 minutes
