I had this amazing pizza at my friend Kat’s last night:
This inspired me to make one of my own tonight for dinner!
I got the herbed pizza dough from Trader Joes and also got a pizza stone to bake on. I sprinkled some whole wheat flour on a clean counter, and rolled the dough out to about a 12” X 12” “square.” I sprinkled the stone with garlic salt, and then placed the dough on it.
I added pizza sauce, shredded chicken, artichoke hearts, black olives, mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes and fat free feta cheese. I also added fresh rosemary and some Italian seasoning.
Then I baked it on the stone for 10 minutes at 450* and wa lah!
I had three pieces….in other words, half of the pizza….I had to really convince myself not to feel guilty, because it is so healthy! It has so many veggies and some shredded rotisserie chicken-skin and fat removed. I am taking the other half to work tomorrow for lunch and part of dinner. This is my weekend to work, joy to the world.
I have made pizza on pre-baked crust before, but never on fresh dough like this. It was amazing!! The dough added such a nice flavor and cooked perfectly just the way I cooked it. I didn’t realize how easy this was to do! Now I have added another method to my arsenal. Thanks Kat for your inspiration! Now I need to go to AJ’s and get this dressing you used, because it is incredible!
I’m not sure what it is made with, but it is so good that it makes me want to eat a salad. That means it’s REALLY good. It’s not too bad on the calories and fat either if I remember correctly.
This whole not running thing is killing me. I did do hot yoga tonight, though, so that definitely helped. I didn’t ride my bike today….I am going to try and get up a half-an- hour early tomorrow and ride it while watching the news. Pray for me on this one for I am the worst person for getting up early on the face of the planet!
What are you doing this weekend?
Do you work weekends?
What do you like to do for cardio that isn’t running?
Happy Trails and a Happy Weekend to You!!
