The ultimate mini-pizza, minus the calories

by Brittany Fuino, blogger

Wegmans might as well start publishing a dictionary, because it really does have the answer to everything…at least in the kitchen. You say an entire personal pissa crust with only 16 calories sounds about as real as Heidi Montag’s face—I say, go to Wegmans!
Head not to the bakery, but to the machine that makes the large corn poppers. The store’s glorified rice cakes make the perfect base for a mini pizza. If you’re an old pro at creating pizza-type snacks with English muffins, swap in these corn poppers for a lighter, crispier treat (and save 80 calories!).
  • 1 Wegman’s corn popper
  • 1 Laughing Cow Garlic & Herb spreadable cheese wedge
  • 1/3 large cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 or 2 large slices tomato
  • 1/4 teaspoon each garlic powder, Italian seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon each ground black pepper, salt
  • 2 Tablespoon grated parmesan cheese

Spread the corn popper with the Laughing Cow cheese.  Layer cucumber slices (they add crunch) around the edge and put the tomato slice in the center.  Sprinkle with garlic powder, iIalian seasoning, ground black pepper, salt and parmesan cheese. Toast in a toaster oven or in a 400* oven until slightly brown. Sometimes I roast garlic beforehand and squeeze it on top using a garlic presser.

Voila—a quick, easy way to cure your pizza craving for only around 100 calories! Thank you Wegmans!
