Tuna White Bean Salad Flatbread – 27g protein and less than 300 calories!
This tuna white bean salad flatbread is a pizza you don’t have to feel guilty about! Filling, flavorful and fun to eat — and unbelievably easy to prepare.
I’m so excited to be teaming up with Flatout Flatbread and StarkKist to bring you this healthy and filling recipe. This flatbread pizza is very unique and light — but filling at the same time. You guys are going to love it.
My husband loves tuna. He ate it all the time when he was in the Marines. When he was a teacher, the staff of the school all contributed to a school cookbook for fundraising purposes.
Ben’s recipe was “Yellow Tuna.”
You might be thinking, “Ooooh a yellowfin tuna recipe?”
Ben’s recipe was this: “Open a can of tuna, drain. Mix with mustard and eat with a fork.”
If he can eat it like that, it is clear that he loves tuna. Me…I’m a little iffy on it but like it when it is prepared in certain ways.
And you all already know I love Flatout Flatbread, so I’m excited to partner with them for this post. I use one of Flatout’s products practically daily and love that they are a Michigan company.
Have you tried Flatout Flatbread? Try making a ham and egg wrap with herb, and or my vegetarian wrap with provolone and roasted red pepper hummus. I have a bunch of flatbread recipes that I’ll list for you at the end of this post. I’d love for you to try one!
The flatbread crust only has 140 calories and the herb and garlic tuna packet only contains 110 calories, making this a very low calorie entree! The herb and garlic tuna is so flavorful that you barely need dressing. I just spritz the spinach with a light spray of extra virgin olive oil for a little moisture and flavor. If you just have plain tuna, that’s okay, too. You may want to drizzle a bit of your favorite vinaigrette over the pizza.
The white beans lend such a creamy texture (plus nutrition and fiber) that you won’t even miss the mayo and cheese that often accompany tuna.
This tuna and white bean salad flatbread pizza is so protein packed (the flatbread alone has 7 grams!) that you’ll feel satisfied but not weighed down and heavy. Flatout is surprisingly high in fiber as well. (Can you tell I love the stuff?)
I love making this flatbread pizza for lunch or for a light dinner. Ben said “I could eat this every day!”
You can simplify this recipe for kids. I bake a Flatout flatbread pizza with tuna and a light sprinkle of cheese for my 3 year old. She loves it!
