Cottage Cheese Pizza

I know, I know – this sounds like a weird creation. But, guess what – low-fat cottage one is fantastic for you! It’s packed full of protein. Why have I not been eating this all my life? Anyway, I found some pizza dough in the freezer and decided to get creative. I think it turned out wonderfully if I do say so myself.

Ingredients

  • garlic and herb pizza dough from Trader Joe’s (you could use any crust – or be super awesome and make your own from scratch)
  • low fat or fat-free cottage cheese (I probably used about a cup and a half)
  • grape tomatoes (sliced in half)
  • sun-dried tomatoes (diced)
  • mushrooms
  • reduced fat mozzarella (I probably used about a cup)
  • reduced fat or fat-free Feta cheese
  • fresh basil (about twenty leaves)

Instructions

  1. Spread out the dough on a pizza stone or baking sheet. Then, I pre-bake the crust a bit in the oven so that it doesn’t end up soggy in the middle. I followed the directions on my package of dough, which said 425 degrees, and I probably baked it for 6-8 minutes.

  2. Spread the cottage one on the pre-baked dough in a thin layer.

  3. Top with grape tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes, and mushrooms.

  4. Sprinkle on mozzarella and feta. Then top with the basil.

  5. Bake in the oven (425 still) until it has all melted. It took me about 10 minutes I think.

Recipe Notes

I know this wasn’t much of a recipe, but I just wanted to give you the idea that you can make a healthy pizza using some low fat cottage cheese with other low-fat ones and veggies for toppings.  All that low-fat one is packed with protein, making this a very filling dish that you can enjoy guilt free!
