Yummy...Pizza alternative!

I see so many people shunning pizza, as I am looking through the site.

If you love pizza, portabello mushrooms is your secret to still having pizza! I take the stems off 2 of largest mushrooms I can
find. I bake them at 400, about 20 minutes. You want all the water to evaporate, if they still seem wet out of the oven, blot them with paper towels. Next, pizza sauce about 1 tsp up to 1 tbsp. Dice finely veg, meat, grate mozzarella. Mix together and pile on caps. Bake til bubbly! yummy!

Tricking your mind into thinking your eating more....

I have a tendency to over eat so I found that if I wanted a slice of pizza ( not the whole thing or 4 slices as I normally would have done) I would take a slice and cut it into 4 slices. This way as I eat I am SEEING 4 slices and it takes me more time to EAT the 1 slice tricking my mind into thinking I have eaten more than I really have. emoticon

Pizza pat down

Don't be shy about using this strategy the next time you want to enjoy some restaurant pizza. Take a few napkins and blot the top of your pizza. You will be amazed at how much grease and oil comes up...think of it as junk that you avoided putting in your body! While pizza is not the best choice for every day eating, this tip can at least help you enjoy it in moderation every now and then.

Pizza Portion Control

Once you've cooked a frozen pizza, it's hard to keep from going back for "just one more slice." if you're trying to control your portions, cut it into slices while it's frozen and then cook only one or two. If you want more after that, you'll have to wait another 15 minutes for it to cook, so it's a good deterrent.

Eat your pizza European-style!

Pizza is my weakness. I just can't give it up! But, I don't let it kick my a%@. I choose wisely and eat it European-style - WITH A KNIFE AND FORK! First, always choose thin crust (whole wheat if available) with light cheese and veggies for toppings (or ham if you need meat; stay away from fatty pepperoni or sausage). Then cut up each slice with a knife and fork laying down the utensils after each bite while you chew. This will slow you down and keep you from over-indulging! Works for me! :)

Low carb pizza crust using cauliflower

This pizza crust uses cauliflower as the base ingredient, rather than flour. It is surprisingly good - definitely worth a try. Just make sure you really spray the pan before spreading the dough mixture!

Recipe Makeovers

Minipizza w/whole-grain pitta, low-fat cheese, homemade tomato sauce & extra lean ham is 1 of my fav dishes & it doesn't pack a lot of calories! Figure out ways to enjoy your fav food w/ a healthy twist. Get creative!

I can even enjoy chocolate milk w/ skim milk & 2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder or healthy sandwiches loaded w/ veggies, melted low-fat cheese & lean meat. They're yummy, fulfulling & the possibilities are endless!

I also replaced fries w/ thin slices of baked potato. Crunchy!

Reheat Pizza

Reheat Pizza: Heat up leftover pizza in a nonstick skillet on top of the stove, set heat to med-low and heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy. No soggy micro pizza.

Review: Kashi frozen pizza, not worth the price

I bought this because I had a coupon, it was on sale, & it was made with whole grains & vegetables, fairly low in calories & carbs. (I got the Mushroom Trio & Spinach variety.) A serving size = 1/3 of a small, thin pizza ---which my husband said "wouldn't satisfy a cat." So we divided it in half (still only 375 calories) & topped it with broccoli & turkey pepperoni. My husband (who doesn't have an oz. of fat on him) added provolone slices & a half of a tortilla on top... (click title for more)

Surviving Pizza & Movie night!

When my family orders pizza & a movie on friday nights, I make my own healthily pizza. I use a flat out wrap, fat free pizza sauce, 2% motzorella cheese, turkey pepperoni and lots of veggies! It is very filling & hits the spot. I can enjoy pizza with my family and yet not consume to many calories!

How To Fill Up While Eating Pizza

Pizza is something alot of people love, myself included! So, in order to NOT overdo it...use a fork. Sounds simple. But using a fork forces you to slow down, forces you to digest the food and lets your stomach tell you when it is full!

I LOVE pizza, but hate the calories that come with it. Buy "Earthgrains Natural Whole Wheat Thin Buns" which are 100 calories for two halves. Recipe in more information. Result? ~200 calories, 16 g fiber, and a portion friendly snack thats easy!

Pizza fix

If I crave pizza, I'll put marinara sauce (or spagetti sauce) in a pita pocket and add shredded cheese or string cheese and toast it in the toaster oven until the cheese melts. It's so good!
You can also add green peppers, mushrooms, & more. emoticon
