Lavash Bread as Pizza? Yes!

I’ve been researching healthier pizza and bread alternatives that are better for you and found this idea online from SkinnyTaste blog. It was so easy and good and creative! I personally believe that pizza can actually be quite healthy, depending on the kind of bread we use and of course the topping ingredients.

What is Lavash ?

Lavash Bread is low carb and a good source of fiber. Used in a roll-up sandwich or as a sliced party snack, this lavash bread will not fall apart. Middle East Lavash Bread is a reduced carb, high protein and has no cholesterol.

Joseph’s Bakery Low Carb Bread Flax Oat Lavash is the brand that I like to use and easy and I can buy in the my local grocery store. Highly recommended

For this pizza I added raw spinach , shredded mozzarella cheese, homemade mushroom tomato sauce and cooked organic 90% lean ground beef for protein . Bake flat at 425 degrees for 10 minutes until crisp . Use what ever cooked protein and veggies you like.

Chef tip! Don’t add a lot of sauce and toppings so it doesn’t get soggy.
