Skinny Taco Pizza

I’ve been hitting the gym and lightening up on my food intake for a couple of months now.  With summer looming closely ahead, I’ve been focused on choosing products at the store that are helping me to limit my calories.  Summer will be here in just a few days, so making more Weight Watchers- friendly recipes are going to help me feel more comfortable in a swimsuit!

I’m currently partnering with Flatout Flatbread’s line of healthy bread to create a few recipes.  And since Flatout Flatbread is the only flatbread endorsed by Weight Watchers, all of the recipes I create for them have a Weight Watchers Smartpoints® total included.  Flatout Flatbreads are located in the deli/bakery section of most major grocery stores, and they are all 2 to 4 SmartPoints® each.

Even if you’re not following Weight Watchers and are just trying to lighten things up, Flatout Flatbreads are a simple solution to creating simple meals.  You shouldn’t have to deprive yourself of the foods you love if you are trying to lose weight.  Just make good choices and smart substitutions, and you can still enjoy the food that you #FlatoutLove.

Ingredients for Skinny Taco Pizza

I use the Flatout Artisan Thin Pizza Crust for this recipe.  It has 4 Weight Watchers Smartpoints and is just 120 calories.  Besides that, you’ll need turkey taco meat (follow the recipe), fat free refried beans, reduced fat cheese, tomato, lettuce and light sour cream.

The recipe begins by baking the pizza crust to get it a little bit crispy.

    I thought it was great! I didnt have flatout pizza crust but used the flatout wrap. It worked great! I added black olives and green chilies.

    Make your own taco seasoning for 0 points 🙂 Just as good! I make a big batch and keep it in the pantry in a mason jar.

      great idea!

    I don’t like beans, is there anything else I could use to make the meat “stick”?

      I’m not sure!

    I’m confused about the pts for this. The flatout is 4 pts, 99% gr turkey is zero pts, ff refried beans are zero pts, the seasonings and green chilies are zero pts, Reg Mexican cheese blend is 4 pts for 1/3 cup would be less for reduced fat cheese, tomatoes and lettuce are zero and light sour cream is 2 pts for 2 tbs which would be plenty to drizzle over the whole thing. That adds up to 10 pts for the whole flatout am I missing something?

      On the WW recipe builder, I have: Flatout 4 points, 3 tsp. taco seasoning 1 point, 1/3 cup red fat shredded cheese 4 points, 1/4 light sour cream 3 points = 12 points total. 6 points per serving

    Mexican pizza looks delicious. Is it for 2?  I’m on ww and would like nutritional values. Thanks

      Hi Lynne, it is two servings. You get to eat half the pizza!

    Do you have the nutrition information for this recipe? I follow points plus and wanted to calculate it into points plus instead of smartpoints! Thanks!

    I made this today. HOLY COW!! It was amazing. My local store didn’t have the Flatout pizza so I used the Flatout italian wrap and it worked perfectly. I also added some salsa to the top. I made it for my whole family so I did the recipe x 4. My teenage boys couldnt get enough of it. I will definitely be making this again.

    this just needs some sauce under the refried beans and it would be great

      You could add some taco sauce on top, if you’d like!
