homemade pizza

After my 30 minute powerwalk yesterday morning, I was craving cold cereal with milk.  I made up a bowl with 3 different types of cereal and 1% milk.

  • Trader Joe’s O’s
  • Uncle Sam’s Flax Cereal
  • Bob’s Red Mill Museli

It was a good mix of cold and crunchy.  Topped with a super ripe banana for potassium.

It was a crazy day at work, so all of a sudden it was 2 o’clock and I was more than ready for lunch!

Good thing I packed a salad from home.

CSA lettuce topped with tabouli, chopped raisins, sunflower seeds and feta cheese.

With a yogurt and apple on the side.

After a mid-afternoon snack of a Brownie Larabar, I was ready for our pizza party!

I chopped up some peppers, kale and chicken sausage for toppings.  Cooked before makingthe pizza.

Dough and Pizza sauce from Trader Joe’s:

Whole wheat and my favorite garlic and herb dough!

Their dough and sauce are made with simple ingredients!

Pizza #1 – Whole Wheat dough with mozzarella cheese, chicken sausage, green pepper and feta cheese.

We cook our pizza on a preheated (in a 400* oven) pizza stone, which works great!  I pre-bake the dough for about 5 minutes, add the toppings, then cook for an additional 7-10 minutes.  They come out great everytime!

Pizza #2Garlic & Herb dough with mozzarella cheese, red pepper and sauteed kale.

I enjoyed a slice of each (minus the chicken sausage, which I removed) and they were both delicious!

Pizza really is a simple meal to make, especially if you use pre-made dough and sauce.
