Foods Gone Fit: Protein Packed Pizza

If you know me, you know that on a Friday or a Saturday night you can catch me at home chilling out with Elvis, a pizza and a Redbox movie.  Now, I don’t always treat myself to a pizza from Dominos or Pizza Hut because we all know that if you are trying to get or maintain a sexy fit body, eating pizza will not get you there.

That being said, I do not deprive myself of yummy foods like pizza, instead I like to create healthier versions at home.  In this episode of Foods Gone Fit, I will show you how to make one of my favorite pizza recipes, “Protein Packed Pizza”.

 

 

 

These are the Ingredients:

-1 Whole wheat English muffin

-1/4 cup tomato sauce

-1tsp onion powder

-1tsp of garlic powder

-1 tsp black pepper

-2 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)

-1/4 cup reduced fat mozzerella cheese

-2-3oz of pre cooked and shredded chicken breasts

Directions:

-Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. On a cookie sheet place your english muffin and top it with tomato sauce, chicken breasts, mozzerella cheese, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper and finally the red pepper flakes. Bake the pizza for 15 minutes until the english muffin is crispy and then remove from the oven.

*If you do not have a traditional oven, a microwave works just as great. Note: The English muffin will not be crispy.

From start to finish this recipe should not take you any longer than 20 minutes to make.  Pair your pizza with a large green salad and you have the perfect balanced meal.  I have provided you all with the nutritional information below.
