Low Fat Recipe
These tangy Barbecue Pizza Bites are guaranteed to please both kids and kids-at-heart.
1/2 pound ground round
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped carrot
1/3 cup barbecue sauce
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
Dash black pepper
Four 4-ounce Italian pizza crusts (such as Boboli)
1/4 cup finely shredded provolone or part-skim Mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
Preheat oven to 450-degrees.
Cook beef, onion, and carrot in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain well; return meat mixture to pan. Stir in barbecue sauce, sugar, salt, and pepper; reduce heat, and simmer five minutes. Place pizza crusts on a baking sheet. Divide beef mixture evenly among crusts, and sprinkle with cheese.
Bake pizzas at 450-degrees for 12 minutes or until cheese melts. Sprinkle pizzas with cilantro. Cut each barbecue pizza into 4 pizza-bite wedges.
