Pizza, please!

Saturday, May 26, 2012

emoticon I have been craving pizza for a few days, so today I made my first homemade Spinach pizza and to be honest, next time I am craving pizza, I will just make a low-fat version of my usual (ham, pepperoni & banana peppers)!! My daughter is on this journey w/me, so we thought we'd try a healthy version of pizza, but unfortunately, it just didn't work for us!. The best part of the meal was the salad!! emoticon When I asked my husband what he thought, he says,"Well it's different!"...which means he didn't like it, but didn't want to hurt my feelings since I made it! My daughter said she "liked" it, which means she probably won't be eating anymore of it! The recipe called for lots of garlic, and I love me some garlic, but I think I'll still be tasting it next week!! emoticon
With all that being said, next time I want PIZZA, I will splurge a bit on my favorite homemade pizza!!
I think it's ok to give a little here & there, but don't make a habit of it!! emoticon

    I'm not usually much of a pizza person while my husband could easily have it twice or three times a week. That said, every once in awhile I get this overwhelming pizza craving. Used to be I'd call up Papa John's and order a Hawaiian...and some bread sticks...and a dessert.

Now I make my pizza at home. It's still a splurge, but I know what exactly is going into it and how much. I do add spinach to mine, but it's not the key ingredient.

And I had to laugh. My dad has been using, "It's different," for years to let my mom know that the recipe in question is awful! emoticon

    Good for you trying something new! I have tried a lot of interesting homemade pizzas, but I tend to go back to my favorite, too~turkey pepperoni, bell peppers and mushrooms. Like so many others, I can't make it very often because it is such a trigger food for me.

    You are certainly right, it is okay to give a little if we don't make a habit of it. I love pizza as well and so far have avoided it because I do have problems limiting myself to one or two slices. Not much of a fan of spinach on a pizza.

Take care,

    I found when I first started it was hard to stay away from stuff I shouldn't have. Pizza is a big no-no I would like to say I can have it in small portions, but it never happens. It just tastes too good. It's best to stay away from it for a while.

    When I'm craving pizza, I make my own homemade Canadian Bacon & Pineapple pizza. It's got way fewer calories than what I would get from Pizza Hut....and It doesn't taste the same....but it satisfies the craving I'm having. I've found if I will make small adjustments & not completely give up the foods I crave completely...then I will stick with my healthier habits.
