I have a gigantic sweet tooth. But as a registered dietitian, I aim to make dessert on the healthy side. So I started playing around in the kitchen to whip up a dessert pizza that also delivers a dose of nutrition.
I decided to make my healthy dessert pizza using a Flatout Artisan Thin Pizza Crust. The bread is now one of three varieties of Flatout flatbreads endorsed by Weight Watchers for between 2 and 4 SmartPoints values. The others are Flatout Light flatbreads and Flatout ProteinUp CarbDown flatbreads.
Each pizza crust is just 130 calories and 4 SmartPoints values—and delivers 12 percent of the daily value for satiating protein.
How to make fruit pizza? To make the dessert flatbread, I first toasted the pizza crust in the oven to give it a nice crisp. Then I whipped up a pizza base with light whipped cream cheese, flavored with orange zest and just a little bit of honey. And then to finish off the healthy fruit pizza, I piled on the toppings: lots of fruit (which are freebies on the Weight Watchers plan)!
And there you have it: a nutritious dessert. Each piece of this Flatout Fruit Pizza is only 100 calories or 4 SmartPoints values. In addition to being yummy, the easy fruit pizza also provides protein, which helps keep hunger at bay.
This fruit pizza with cream cheese took less than 15 minutes to make. So it's easy enough to whip up for dessert (I may be making this fruit flatbread creation for my boyfriend and I tonight!)—yet fancy enough to serve at a party.
This healthy fruit pizza would also make a great afternoon snack for the kiddos. It takes just minutes to make and is colorful like a rainbow!
