"Skinny" Greek Lavash Pizza #recipe #pizza #Greek

Anyone close to me knows that pizza is my ultimate weakness. I love it so much, but I'm also aware that if I ate is as much as I wanted to then I could eventually have serious health problems….yes, it's that bad. I actually have a rule with my boyfriend; if you say the work PIZZA more than three times, then something gets triggered in my brain and I have to have it - kind of like the movie Beetlejuice! So anyway, I try to find "skinny" pizza solutions all of the time when I'm ordering it or making it at home, which brings me to my new recipe: Greek Lavash Pizza!

Kalamata Olives
Trader Joe's Garlic Herb Chicken Sausage

The "skinny" lavash bread is a great alternative to using a thick crust if you want to keep things on the lighter side. I found a full package of lavash bread for a little over $2 at my local Trader Joe's. FYI, they have about a week's shelf life so don't wait to long to use them - the fresher the better. I actually found all of the ingredients for this dish at Trader Joe's, including the garlic herb chicken sausages I used. Just cook them in the oven or broil them according to package instructions before slicing them up. I also recommend thoroughly draining the can of artichoke hearts and squeezing off the excess juice just before you give them a rough chop.

Other than that, this dish is very easy to make and once you bite into it, you'll understand why I had to share this "Skinny" Greek Lavash Pizza with you! The flavors are bright, harmonious and satisfying. Thyme has a natural lemony flavor to it, so not only does it as some layered flavor and speck of green, but it compliments the Mediterranean components of the dish as well. If you are a pizza and Greek food fan, then I hope you take a moment to make my Skinny Greek Pizza and please let me know what you think about it!
