Pizza and Winners!!

It’s FRIDAY!! Yay! Usually on Fridays, Craig and I stay in and make home made pizza or we have nachos (lightened up of course). We make our own pizza rather than ordering it because it is much lighter in calories and we get more! We bake a whole pan which can be easily sliced into 8 or 12 slices. Depends on how big you want your slices. 🙂

This is our pizza from last Friday.

We did a supreme and it was great! I made the crust from the great value pizza crust in a bag rather than buying a premodern crust (we love our crust thin so this is why I buy the bag and not premade). We topped it off with part skim mozzarella cheese, bell pepper, green onion, mushrooms, turkey pepperoni, and some Canadian bacon. Our entire pizza came out to be about 180 calories a slice (cut in 8 slices) or 120 calories a slice (cut in 12 slices). Versus a slice of Domino’s large extravaganza pizza which is 320 calories for 1 SLICE!!!

Here is what I used:
1 bag great value pizza crust
1/2 cup pasta sauce (we don’t like a lot of sauce)
1 1/2 cup of part skim mozzarella cheese
Mushrooms
Bell pepper
Green onions
17 hormel turkey pepperoni
3 slices of Canadian bacon

If you would like 2 cups of cheese, the your calories will increase to 200 calories (cut in 8 slices) or 133 calories (cut in 12 slices).

NOW AS FOR WINNERS FOR MY CONTEST LAST WEEK
