…there having been a few changes around CollegeGirlCooking. There is a recipe index and another index featuring all my thoughts on eating disorders and self-love. There are also some fun little widgets to the right of the page. I hope you find that the site is now more accessible.
Now onto more exciting and delicious things like my lunch today. Have you all heard of the Flatout flatbread wraps? They are seriously amazingly good. I (okay, my mom) bought the Multi-Grain with flax. There are 9 grams of protein in each wrap which I love. I’ve been eating these wraps with deli turkey, laughing cow light swiss, and whatever veggies I have in my fridge. However, there is a suggestion on the packaging to use the flatbread wrap as pizza crust. I knew that pizza would have to happen.
To my dismay though, when I opened my fridge today there was no mozzarella cheese. When I opened my pantry, there was no pizza sauce. There weren’t even any canned tomatoes. Well…how am I supposed to make a pizza without mozzarella cheese and pizza sauce? Then, in a moment of shear luck, I spotted a jar of pesto in the cupboard. EUREKA! Pesto Pizza
Why hello there gorgeous. GET IN MY BELLY! This pizza was seriously good. The flatbread made a wonderfully crispy crust. This lunch took approximately 7 minutes to put together from start to finish. Can’t beat that!
I love pesto. The olive oil is so good for my hair and nails. It can be a bit pricey, but a little bit goes a long way and it’s versatility makes it worth it. You could spread some on sandwiches or wraps, use it as a pasta sauce, or use it as a dipping sauce for some crusty french bread. Yum! That is going to happen in my near future.
Hey! Who took a big bite out of my pizza!?
Oh…that was me I just couldn’t wait for the photo shoot to be over before digging in!
Quick and Easy Pesto Pizza
- 1 high protein/high fiber flatbread wrap (I used Flatout multi-grain with flax)
- 1 wedge laughing cow light Swiss
- 1 Tablespoon pesto
- enough Parmesan cheese to coat pizza as desired
Place flatbread on a pizza pan in the oven, broiler set to 350. Let the flatbread bake for 3-5 minutes, watching it closely. Remove from the oven once the flatbread is crispy. Spread on the laughing cow cheese, then pesto, and top with Parmesan. Place under broiler for another 2 minutes. Enjoy!
