How the new year new you going? For me, no new me. I’m ok with current me. But I do however, try very hard to workout more and eat better when the new year hits and I’m usually pretty successful with it.
Like most people there is no denying the love for pizza and also no denying it’s typically a “cheat day” kind of food. In my experience, when you’re craving a not so good for you food, its better to try and find a substitute. That’s what I’m doing today.
I’ve never worked with Fillo dough before and one of my “resolutions” is every month, at least once, to cook with something I never have. There’s no reason I’ve never used it, I suppose I just never came across a recipe that called for it. Today I’m changing that.
Fillo Dough Pizza
with Pesto, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and Basil
What you need:
Frozen Fillo dough, thawed
Tiny fresh mozzarella balls
What you do:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees, put your toppings on however you like your pizza. I’m much more of a pesto person than red sauce so that’s what I chose. Bake for 15-20 minutes and enjoy!
The best part about this recipe is that you don’t hate yourself for eating three pieces. For every 5 sheets of fillo dough it’s only 170 calories and I used eight. I had intentions to use five but it just didn’t seem like enough. This is also perfect to whip quickly up for a gathering!
