Mmmmm….everything in moderation is our key here. And if you’re at all like me, I love pizza. Fresh out of the oven hot or nice and cold the next day. There’s something about the comfort of pizza.
However, if you take a look at the nutritional value on either store bought pizzas or home delivered pizzas, you might as well jump on the treadmill and start working out for the next week in order to burn off the calories.
But there’s a solution—-and it is delicious! Home-made pizza—-don’t get afraid but we just made an amazing Mediterranean Pizza this past weekend and was it tasty. Follow the recipe below to enjoy in your own home! What’s your favorite pizza type? Submit your favorite recipe to us and you might just see it here on the iGoPinkblog.org Tasty Tuesday page!
Start with a home made pizza crust (or store bought natural pre-made crust): http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/emeril-lagasse/pizza-dough-recipe/index.html
Add for toppings:
Brush of olive oil with dried herbs (your choice: basil, oregano, etc)
Grilled Chicken breast (shredded)
Olives (about 8 cut in half)
Capers (about 15)
One red pepper sliced and grilled on stove until slightly softened
1/2 red pepper chopped
4 artichoke hearts pulled apart
Handful of low-fat Feta (or Goat) cheese
1/2 cup low-fat mozzarella cheese shredded
After cooking your pizza crust or by using the store bought one, add all the additional toppings (and anything else you may like.) Place in the oven for 12 minutes or until crust is the crispy-ness you like and the cheese melted.
Enjoy—a healthy yet completely satisfying pizza fix!!!
