“My kids wanted pizza AGAIN! But my hips don't like pizza anymore.....or maybe they like it too much! I noticed that the pepperoni I bought was only 13 calories per slice (Only?) so I decided to make a lower fat pizza/pasta dish using chicken breast. It was really good! It has 550 calories, but remember that a slice of pizza can be around 400 calories! For One piece! YIKES! Add a nice green salad with low fat dressing and you have a whole meal under 600 calories. Reduce the chicken to 3 oz, and the pepperoni to turkey pepperoni & you could save much more fat and calories.”
