  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.

  8. Remove from oven and sprinkle each pizza with 1 teaspoon cilantro.

Helpful hints

  • Always select natural cheeses instead of processed cheese. Sodium and phosphorus contents are usually lower in natural cheeses.
  • Stick with the recommended cheese portion (2 tablespoons per pizza—or less) to keep phosphorus in a reasonable range.
