    Made a Pizza Today

    So I wanted some pizza, and I wanted an atleast somewhat healthy meal - so what's one to do?

    I decided to make my own pizza with a bit of an experiment.

    My mom has a bread/dough making machine thing that comes in pretty handy, so I used that to make my dough. The dough recipe called for 3 cups bread flour, which is definitely a no no; so I substituted with 2 cups oat flour and 1 cup whole wheat flour, along with some water, olive oil, yeast etc.

    Once that was done I put it in the pizza pan and it looked pretty good. For the sauce I originally wanted to make my own as well because I thought the store made type would be high in sodium and what not, but looking at all the recipes, they all called for some type of tomatoe paste anyway, so I said the hell with it and just bought some sauce, it didn't look too bad anyway, and I only used about 3/5 of the jar anyway.

    I got some 2% low fat monzzarella cheese and put that on there, used the whole bag with 6 six servings, 4 g. fat, 2.5 saturated, 8 g. protein. I figure I could measure this evenly with 6 six slices of pizza.

    I put some mushrooms on there.

    I grilled some lean steak and some chicken breast and then ground it up and smothered the whole thing with yummy meat, yum yum.

    And that was that! I baked it and took it out.

    It was TASTY! Yum! It was just like I had hoped, it was very deep dishy, but everything tasted great. I figured that one bad thing about pre-made pizza is that #1 the carb source sucks because of the crappy flour, and #2 you have to eat like frekin 4 slices before you can reach a high protein intake in which case you have like 800 calories by then.

    So I figure with this homemade style there's a decent carb sources, most of which is derived from oats, and pretty high protein to fat/carbs ratio (right around 30 grams protein per slice, 6 slices per pizza. I think it was like an 11 inch one or something). Yeah, it was kinda a pain to make, but kinda fun at the same. I may just make it a bi-weekly thing.

    By the way I took a picture before I began feasting which I just uploaded, don't ask me why, I just felt like it.

    As you can see I wasn't lying when I said I smothered it in meat, the darkish meat is the steak if you couldn't tell.

    I made the dough for my boyfriend yesterday and he finished making the pizza with ground turkey, diced tomatoes, veggies and ff cheese. I had 1 slice and it was very good. I think he cooked the crust too long but otherwise it was freaking unbelievable. I felt like I was cheating but I knew I wasn't, it was that good.

    Thanks Derek for the great idea. This was quite easy to make (with a breadmaker) and very good. I can't wait to make many more of these after my comp.

    I bought a flour free ,gluten free, ready to eat crust at wild oats..
    no oils are preservatives, ingredients are brown rice only.
    Put FF cheese and a lil marinara and its actually really good. I think I can do just fine without flour. :

    I think it's 1 tablespoon oil, and the yeast is like 2.25 oz. or something, I just used individual packages which are already measured out. I'd have to check the recipe later.

    And flex it's not something I'd make on a daily basis or anything because of the time invovled, but every other week or so I actually enjoy making it, so it's no big deal.
