Carbs aren't the only thing Italians are good at. These healthy Italian recipes—chicken calzones, prosciutto paninis, saucy Italian meatball subs, and more—go past just pasta and sauce and into protein-packed dinners less than 400 calories per serving. Mangia!


1 - medium head cauliflower (1 1/2 to 2 pounds), cored and cut into florets (4 cups)
1 - egg, lightly beaten
1/4 - cup cup shredded Italian cheese blend (1 ounce)
1/4 - cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 - cup panko bread crumbs
1/2 - teaspoon Italian seasoning, crushed
1/4 - teaspoon salt
3/4 - cup pizza sauce

Desired toppings

Place the cauliflower in a food processor. Cover and pulse four to six times or until crumbly and mixture resembles the texture of couscous.
Place a pizza stone or baking sheet in the oven. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Place cauliflower in a microwave-safe casserole with 2 tablespoons water. Microwave, covered, on 100% power (high) for 3 to 4 minutes or until tender, stirring once or twice. Cool. Transfer cauliflower to a 100% cotton flour-sack towel. Wrap towel around cauliflower and squeeze until there is no more liquid (this step is critical).
In a medium bowl stir together cooked and drained cauliflower, egg, Italian cheese blend, the Parmesan cheese, panko, Italian seasoning, and salt. On a piece of parchment paper pat cauliflower mixture into a 12-inch circle. Transfer crust on paper to the preheated pizza stone. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until crisp and starting to brown.

Spoon pizza sauce over baked crust, spreading evenly. Top with desired toppings. Bake about 5 minutes more or until heated and cheese melts. Cut into slices to serve.
