A Yummy Pizzaria Pizza Meal Today!

Sunday, June 02, 2013

I just have to share with all my wonderful friends the yummy pizza I made for my family today. Here's a photo and link to the recipe. .http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/recipe_details.asp?nutrition_id=66555340

I could eat a whole quarter of that pizza for only 394 calories and 8 g. fat. I didn't think that was too harming and it sure was filling!

I originally got the recipe from SCTF75 because she had mentioned it and loved it. The crust is very thin and you don't need very much sauce to make it taste good. I have a pizza stone so used that. I used lowfat chicken, spinach and mozzarella sausage, sliced and fresh mushrooms for my part. The rest of the family had beef brats, sliced and pork sausage along with the mushrooms on their part. You can maybe tell by the photo that there's other kind of meat on the main part of the pizza. When I figured the nutritional values I just figured it with what I fixed for myself on the quarter of it so I could count what I ate.

So here's an advertisement for a really luscious pizzaria pizza! So, if you try it I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I feel with losing weight, that I have to have a lot of variety to my new way of eating to keep my interest piqued! So I'm always game for something new and different.

Good luck to us all on our journeys to better health!

    Good for You! It nice to eat like a normal person and maintain your calories. You sound like you are really doing well. I feel guilty having you read about my pain when you live with it all the time. Thanks for being such a sweet heart! I raided the drug store last night and hope that one of the riduculously costly meds will put a dent in my tummy monster pain!

Hang in there with your issues! You deserve to be pain free and very happy!! emoticon

    MMMMMMMMMMMMM! looks yummy! And I know....it seems like a miracle but you can fit pizza into a healthy lifestyle. YAY! Way to go Karen. Big victory for figuring out how to feed the rest of the family and meet your needs too. That is a big challenge!

I know what ya mean about needing variety. I tried a SP recipe, chicken rice and beans in a crockpot. Thought it would be kinda crappy because I've made rice dishes in crockpot and they weren't very good...rice gets gross, texture of paste. But this one was GOOD! and the rest of the family LIKED it too! Served it with tortilla chips (baked) and sprinkling of cheddar. Delicious! Oh ...but I tweaked the recipe and added double the rice and added a bit more water. Good thing I did too because it would not enough to feed all five of my people otherwise. Also cut up the chicken breasts into smaller pieces rather than whole. Be sure rice is UNDER all the chicken too because if it is on top of chicken those rice( kernels?) stay kinda crunchy. But your a good cook so you can figure it out. Give this one a try. It feels like your eating cheating Mexican food!
PS have you slayed the night time snacking monster yet????? Me, well unfortunately that monster has the gift of resurrection. POO!
Keep going, your doing great!
