Baked Gooey Goodness

Baked Babybels
from The Biggest Loser Quick & Easy Cookbook
Apps and Snacks, Pronto (p. 109)

Olive Oil Spray
3 ounces all-natural wheat pizza dough (used Whole Foods Brand)
1/2 tsp. salt-free garlic seasoning (I used Italian Herb seasoning & red pepper flake)
2 rounds Laughing Cow Mini Babybel Light, sliced in half to create two rounds (not 2 half circles)
Preheat the oven to 450. Place a sheet of nonstick foil on a small baking sheet. Lightly mist the foil with the olive oil spray.

Weigh 3/4 ounces of dough with a scale. On a clean work surface flatten the dough into rounds large enough for dough to be larger than the cheese round. Place half a Babybel on the dough and bring the sides up and to the center so that the cheese is completely covered with the dough. Place each dough round on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle the top of each round with your seasoning of choice, the red pepper flake was just right for me.

Bake for 5-7 minutes, watching them carefully during the last few minutes, or until the dough is cooked. You want to remove them from the oven before the cheese oozes (although mine oozed and they still were AMAZING) Serve immediately.

Serving Size: 2 balls (equals 1 whole Babybel Light)
Per Serving: 148 calories, 9g protein, 18g carbs, 4g fat, 2g fiber

I served mine with Monte Bene Low-Fat Tomato Basil Sauce(also at Whole Foods)
Serving Size: 1/2 cup(as a dipping sauce you only need a few tablespoons)
Per Serving: 24 calories, 1g protein, 2g carbs, 1g fat, 1g fiber
