What to Eat Wednesday: Mango Salsa Pizza

IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION

At this time, our office continues to be open to new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. We are continuing operation in an effort to keep patients out of the urgent care clinics and hospital emergency departments, which increases the chances of being exposed to the virus. We have x-ray and ultrasound in the office to prevent you from having to go elsewhere.

For those patients who cannot or wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

A slice or two of this pizza pie will keep you on track with your diabetic meal plan!We all love a slice or two of pizza every now and then, but if you’re living with diabetes, the carb/fat combo of even one small piece of the pie could throw your entire meal plan out of whack. Can’t live without the cheesy goodness? Don’t worry! The Mayo clinic has you covered with their Mango Salsa Pizza, just 4 grams of fat and 45g of carbs for 2 slices!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped red or green bell peppers
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 1/2 cup mango, seeded, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup pineapple tidbits
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 12-inch prepared whole-grain pizza crust, purchased or made from a mix

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 F. Lightly coat a 12-inch round baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the peppers, onions, mango, pineapple, lime juice and cilantro. Set aside.
  3. Roll out dough and press into the baking pan. Place in the oven and cook about 15 minutes.
  4. Take the pizza crust out of the oven and spread with mango salsa. Place the pizza back into the oven and bake until the toppings are hot and the crust is browned, about 5 to 10 minutes.
  5. Cut the pizza into 8 even slices and serve immediately.
