Come January and we're all trying to eat healthier and shed all those extra pounds gained over the Holidays, right?

But we're also in winter and comfort food is a necessity...and I don't see nothing wrong with treating yourself to a slice (or two) of pizza on the weekend 😉

Especially if you make a few healthier twists along the way to make sure you can enjoy this popular snack, guilt-free!

Who doesn't love pizzas? Or Mexican food?! 

Friday night is usually either one of those treats in our house, and this recipe combines the best of both worlds, in a revamped healthier pizza format! 

This recipe's so quick and easy to make, the perfect last-minute snack! Not to mention it's also ideal for feeding a crowd (the guests get to make their own pizzas, ha!) and a tasty appetizer for all those game-watching days and football parties you're probably gonna have this month! 👌

For the pizza flavors you can use all the usual Mexican suspects like chili con carne, or shredded chicken for a fajita version.  And by using tortilla wraps as the pizza bases, you cut down on a ton of extra calories! 

I serve the pizzas with all the trimming like pico de gallo salsa, fresh corn, limes...which all count towards your five-a-day veggie portions, right?!
