Ham and Pineapple “Tortizzas”

Tonight’s dinner brought to you by . . . Bountiful Baskets!  The tomatoes, onions, garlic and pineapple all came from our last Bountiful Basket.  You’re looking at about a 200 calorie “tortizza” right here.  The tortilla is a La Tortilla Factory Smart and Delicious Low Carb High Fiber whole wheat tortilla which is 80 calories, the sauce is homemade and about 50 calories for a 1/2 cup (recipe to follow), the pineapple is fresh and about 20 calories for a 1/4 cup and the ham is Cook’s ham (from the freezer left over from our Easter dinner) and is about 30 calories per ounce.  The sauce recipe is already on the blog under “Grilled Pizzas” but I’ve been playing around with it to take down the calorie count so I’ll repost the sauce recipe here in it’s lower calorie form.  The sauce also tastes great on pasta.  And thanks Bountiful Basket for the help in eating healthier!

10 Roma tomatoes, quartered

1 yellow onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, pressed

2 teaspoons Kosher salt

1 teaspoon sugar

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon basil

Preheat oven to 450.  Combine all ingredients in a large casserole dish, tossing lightly to combine.  Roast 35 – 40 minutes, stirring once, until tomatoes are soft.  Remove from oven and mash with potato masher, leaving tomatoes a bit chunky.  (The sauce gets nice and thick when it sits overnight in the fridge so if you make this a day ahead of time, it won’t be as runny.)
