Greek Whole Wheat Pizza

Every week, my husband and I have a group of friends over. We share a time of good food and fellowship and each week we have a different theme. So on our pizza night, I made a version of the recipe below and for the healthy conscious people, it tasted good. For the men who think that whole wheat isn't really a great option, my husband liked this recipe. Who doesn't like pizza, right? This is simply a healthy version that allows you to have more pieces without worrying about your health.

The following recipe comes straight from Eat Better America website.

50 % less fat • 66% more fiber • 33% fewer calories than the original recipe. We tossed up a heart-healthier, whole wheat flour crust, dashed the salt and olive oil, and added plum tomatoes to make this pizza a wiser choice. From eatbetteramerica.
