I don't eat roasted veggies often enough, which is a shame since roasting vegetables really intensifies their flavor, making them delicious (and more sweet). It seems you really don't need to add much of anything to roasted veggies to make them taste good.
So when a fabulous reader (named Claire, thank you!) pointed me towards Whole Foods' new Roasted Veggie Pizza, I was pretty excited to try it. This pizza has no cheese, which many people consider essential on pizza. But, that has never bothered me, so I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did!
The combination of seven roasted veggies give the pizza a lot of flavor. And seven different vegetables on a personal size pizza is pretty remarkable too! They include: red and yellow peppers, yellow squash, zucchini, poblano peppers, artichokes and red onions. The surface of the pizza is pretty much covered in vegetables, as you can see in the picture.
If you can't live without the cheese, I would recommend adding a soft goat cheese, or browning some crumbled feta on top in your oven. If you find that you prefer pizza with goat cheese or feta instead of mozzarella (which I do), remember you can order it this way in a restaurant too, saving a bunch of calories even when dining out.
And here is the most amazing part -- each pizza is one serving and has an unbelievable 150 calories and is 4 weight watchers points plus points points. If you choose to add cheese, 1 oz. of soft goat cheese brings it up to 250 calories, or 7 weight watchers points plus points. Fat-free mozzarella works too, at 195 calories, and 5 weight watchers points plus points points. As far as other nutritional information, each pizza has 2 g fat, 29g carbohydrates, 5 g fiber and 6 g protein.

Thanks again to my reader Claire for pointing me towards this pizza. I always appreciate when people email in with great finds.I highly recommending adding this to anyone's low calorie grocery list.
