Big Mac Pizza

Craving a Big Mac? Or pizza? Why not both?

Can you imagine how many calories and carbs you would be eating if you had a McDonald's Big Mac and say... a pizza from Papa John's? A HUGE amount!

In the past... that was actually pretty common for me to have in any given day. Today it is all about making healthier choices so that I can live a healthier life, but that doesn't mean we have to eat boring foods! My mom used to say don't play with your food when I was little... well I am so glad I didn't listen! Otherwise, I wouldn't have been eating this Big Mac Pizza!


Using a pre-made cauliflower crust from Cali'flour Foods is what allows this pizza to be healthier than using a traditional pizza crust. These cauliflower crusts are only 180 Calories and 6 grams of Carbs but packs 15 grams of Protein for the entire crust! Plus they are made with only a few clean ingredients which include cauliflower, mozzarella cheese, egg and spices. No fillers like some of the cauliflower pizzas on the market! Not to mention they are an approved option on the 5 and 1 plan!

These crusts can be stored in the freezer up until 9 months and they cook up nicely from frozen. No need to thaw.

For this recipe, I pre-baked the crust for about 9 minutes. Then I let it cool completely. Don't skip this step because cooling the crust helps the crust to firm up. It also helps to use a vented pan like the one I have above or a pan with holes in it (perforated pan). A vented pan allows the heat to reach the entire crust as it bakes which results in a crispier crust.


Add cooked ground turkey or beef and shredded cheddar cheese on top of the crust.


Bake for about 5 minutes until the cheese is melted.


Top the pizza with lettuce and tomatoes. Then drizzle the dressing over the top.


Lastly, add the chopped dill pickles! The pickles totally completes this pizza so don't leave them out!


Slice and serve! Share this yummy pizza with someone who is a fan of Big Macs and pizza! Half the pizza is a serving, but you still need to add 1 more Green to complete your Lean and Green meal! Enjoy!
