Ingredients:

  • 4 (8-inch) whole-wheat flour tortillas
  • 4 teaspoons trans-fat-free margarine (vegetable oil spread), melted
  • 4 teaspoons granular sugar substitute
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/3 cups ricotta cheese
  • 9 teaspoons sugar-free apricot jam
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 4 cups yellow and red raspberries, or blueberries, or a mixture
  • Fresh mint leaves, for garnish (optional)

Directions:

  1. Heat the oven to 400°F. Place the tortillas on 2 baking sheets. Brush with the melted margarine and sprinkle evenly with the sugar substitute and cinnamon. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes, until crisp. Cool briefly.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together the ricotta, 4 teaspoons of the apricot jam, the lemon zest, and cardamom.
  3. Divide the ricotta mixture among the 4 tortillas, spreading it almost to the edges.
  4. In a small saucepan, heat the remaining 5 teaspoons jam over low heat until melted. Scatter the berries over the pizzas and brush the berries with the melted jam.
  5. Garnish with mint leaves, if using. Serve warm.
