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.
