One of the things I love most about summer is growing vegetables and herbs. Right now I have a ton of basil and I needed to do something with it! This Strawberry, Basil & Goat Cheese Focaccia was the perfect way to use some up.
Basil is by far my favorite herb. I love it and almost always have it on hand. I love it in soup, with fresh mozzarella or in spaghetti sauce. There are so many ways to use it!
Today I used it for this focaccia. It’s a little sweet and savory, perfect for a light lunch.
I cut the focaccia into 12 pieces. They’re good size pieces too! Each piece is only 3 points for blue, green and purple.
To keep this focaccia low in points I used a thin pizza crust. I bought a pre-made Pillsbury thin pizza crust.
It’s very easy to work with and pretty low in points. I think I’m going to start using this more for pizzas.
When calculating the points the dough comes up as 1 of 5 servings. To create the recipe I put it in as 5 servings which made it 28 points for the entire pizza crust.
The strawberries and basil are both 0 points so I didn’t have to worry about using too much of those.
I bought goat cheese crumbles and used a scale to use exactly 2 ounces. It was enough goat cheese to have a little bit in every bite!
Here are the exact ingredients I used for the Weight Watchers recipe calculator:
