Book Description

Pizza is America's national fun food. And now--thanks to Barbara Grunes' innovative recipes--pizza qualifies as America's national good-health food, too. These 100-plus recipes trim away the excess fat, cholesterol, and calories that usually come with pizza, so families can enjoy all the great tastes without sacrificing good nutrition.

Starting with easy-to-make (and store) recipes for basic crusts and sauces, Skinny Pizzas shows you how easy it is to top pizzas with fresh, low-fat, high-fiber vegetables, dairy products, fruits, poultry, meat, and fish--everything from zucchini and pears to smoked salmon. From hearty one-dish meals to pizza snacks, appetizers, party dishes, and even desserts--all slimmed down for today's healthful lifestyle--home cooks can feel good about serving pizza any time and for any occasion.

Tomato-based pizzas: Shrimp, mushroom, chicken, spinach, tuna, peppers, artichoke, eggplant, and more.
Non-tomato-based pizzas: Teriyaki, salmon, bok choy, goat's cheese, clam, turkey, stir-fry, zucchini, and more.
Pizza on the grill: Fajita, vegetarian, Thai-flavored, salsa, olive, ratatouille, mango, barbecue, and more.
Specialty pizzas: Creole, Szechwan, smoked turkey, scallop, focaccia, crab cake, nacho, English muffin, and more.
Dessert pizzas: Apple, mint brownie, cheesecake, strawberry yogurt, rum-raisin, and more.

All recipes include diabetic exchanges and nutritional specifics on fat, cholesterol, sodium, calories, and percent of calories from fat. Recipes conform to the American Heart Association guidelines regarding the percent daily intake of calories from fat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks like good pizza September 14, 2012
Verified Purchase
This is a nice little cookbook. I thought the book would be kind of, well, *skinny,* but there are a *lot* of pizza recipes in here. Many traditional Italian ones, including a nice recipe for a red sauce, as well as many recipes for white pizzas (no red sauce) and lots of non-traditional recipes like Thai Pizza and Mango Salsa Pizza. (That one looks *really* good. Yum!)

There are several hyper-linked indexes (Main, Red Pizza, White Pizza, Grilled Pizza,) which makes navigating around the ebook much easier.

Good cookbook.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Recipes November 11, 2012
Verified Purchase
I've only made one recipe so far, the cornmeal pizza crust, and it came out really good. One caveat however, the calorie information listed is COMPLETELY off. If you add up the actual calories in the ingredients and then divide by the serving size you get a different number than what is listed. For the cornmeal pizza crust, you get closer to 57 calories per serving (24 servings), almost twice the 33 calories that is listed. Other than that, the recipes seem good. The pizza crust cooks really nicely and ends up very crispy and sturdy to hold up the toppings (even though it's very thin). I look forward to making the other pizza crust recipes once I've used up all the cornmeal dough that I made. Also, I had divided up the dough and froze most of it. I have not had any trouble defrosting and using the dough as need, which is GREAT since I didn't know what to do with all that dough otherwise! So, the recipes are good, just don't rely on the calorie information.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great ideas for some tasty pizzas January 10, 2013
Verified Purchase
I enjoy making pizzas at home but after a while I noticed I was getting stuck into a bit of a rut, making old favorites over and over again. This book gave me some new ideas to try out along with the needed techniques. I did notice that there were some problems in that some measurements were omitted (cups, tablespoons etc). As an experienced cook I can deal with this but novice cooks might run into some problems. I also question the accuracy of some of the calorie counts provided. For anyone on a medically required calorie restricted diet this could be a problem, and it could lead to some frustrations for those attempting to lose weight.

Good recipes. Well organized book. We like pizza at our house. Always looking for recipes to make good pizza less fattening. I feel we found the right book. I would recommend it to any cook also looking to make their own pizza.

My sister was the first to find these recipes and shared them with me. They are easy to make and my family loves the pizza's. With very active boys, it's a healthy choice for a snack, lunch, or dinner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nicely Done Cookbook... October 25, 2012
Verified Purchase
More than 100 pizza recipes that are actually healthy for you, what more could one want? What makes this cookbook different than any other 'pizza cookbook' is the layout. Not just instructions and ingredients, but this cookbook has nutritional data for nearly every recipe. Calories, fat, sat. fat, cholesterol, sodium and the exchanges; you see this type of chart on a can of soup or other prepared foods, but it's not that common in a cookbook, but is much appreciated. With recipes for pizza crusts, red and white pizzas, pizza on the grill, specialty, dessert and party pizzas this cook book gives you lots of options.
