Pizza is one of those foods that most people can relate to as being a guilty pleasure.  Even though we know each slice is hundreds of calories, it is so easy to consume two, three, or even more slices in one sitting.  This pizza is definitely not traditional, but it sounded easy and tasty, so I gave it a try.

I thought this pizza was pretty good, but I felt as though it was more like a blt sandwich, and less like a pizza.  The only thing that made it like a pizza was the fact that the toppings were on a cooked pizza crust.  Other than that, it was just like eating an open-faced blt sandwich.  It consisted of mayo, lettuce, tomato, and turkey bacon all on a cooked (and cooled) Pillsbury pizza crust.  Still pretty good, though, if you like blt sandwiches.  The fact that each slice was only a little more than 200 calories was nice, and the size of each slice was fairly large as well.  You could easily cut the pizza up into eight slices instead of six for less calories, but I guess part of what was nice about this recipe was the fact that the slices were so big.

So, if you are looking for a creative substitution for a blt sandwich, try this recipe.  If you are looking for a pizza substitute, try one of the other many pizza recipes Hungry Girl has to offer.
