It’s Official . . .and a Giveaway!

I am addicted to breakfast pizza!   The base of this pizza was 1/3 cup of my marinara when I had my asparagus ravioli earlier in the week – I added zucchini and chicken sausage to the base.

Topped with spinach, 1.5 ounce mozzarella cheese and 1 egg.  Bake in 425 degree oven for 15 minutes, or until egg is set.

Done!  Jenn and I still think it’s weird how the egg still looks raw!

I added hot sauce and fresh basil after it came out of the oven.  This whole pizza tipped in at 675 calories, but I ate 3/4 of it.  Believe me, it was very hard to give the dog the last piece!

Then it was off to twinfest!  My sister Jenn and I:

Jenn and Biz! 😀

And we always get pizza when we get together!  😀  I had three squares of sausage pizza.  Our hostess had no hot sauce! But she did have chopped gardinera, so I put that on my slices.  Lunch comes in at: 465 calories, 57 carbs, 26 protein, 15 fat and 3 fiber.

So while I had planned on making blackened chicken pizza for dinner, I – for once – was not in the mood for pizza!!  Tony was having chicken wings, so I jumped on that bandwagon.  Dinner comes in at 550 calories, 12 cabs, 42 protein, 33 fat and 1 fiber.

I used about 2 tablespoons of this for 10 wings total - I had 5 wings

After dinner I took Ed for a short walk – it was rainy/foggy/chilly 😦

So it’s no shock that my grade for Saturday was a C+

Total for Day: 1691 calories, 164 cabs, 99 protein, 71 fat and a measly 8.4 protein

I decided that for every 50,000 page views I’ll do a giveaway as a thank you for everyone who takes time out of their day to see what goes on in my life – I really appreciate it!

So I thought it was only appropriate to keep the pizza theme going!  Up today is a 3 piece Chicago Commercial Grade Pizza Set.  With this set you can make thin crusts or Chicago style deep dish pizzas.

Just some of the pizzas I’ve made in the past here at BDL:

Reuben Pizza

Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza with a layer of sausage (inspired from Diners, Drive-Ins and Dive)

Hand tossed Spinach Pizza with Parmesan and ricotta (inspired from The Lucky Monk)

Three Pepper Jalapeno Pizza

Chicago Style Pizza Dough

No Rise Pizza Dough – ready in 5 minutes!

Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Mexican Pizza

Okay, I’ll stop there!  Wow, I really am obsessed with pizza!  All you have to do is leave a comment telling me what your favorite pizza is – how easy is that?? I’ll pick a winner using on Wednesday, April 28! 😀

While my menu planning is a bit plain this week – my lunches are going to be stellar!  The lovely Sophia gave me some wonderful tips on making a Korean Tofu Spicy stew that I plan to make.  Also on the menu?

  • Low fat spinach dip with pita chips and fresh vegetables
  • Alison’s soba peanut chicken salad
  • cauliflower grilled cheese sandwich with cauliflower soup
  • soon dubu tofu stew with brown rice
  • macaroni and cheese soup with buffalo chicken bites (really can’t wait for this one!)

My only unusual breakfast is this girls Personal Tortilla Quiche. Our dinners are just using up meat that’s in our deep freeze, I’ll have to see how I can jazz them up using what I have on hand.

Plans for today?  A trip to Bed, Bath & Beyond for new sheets and to buy a shower gift.  Lunch out with Tony :D, laundry and cooking!!

Enjoy your Sunday!

  1. So… how about you just close the giveaway and give ME the pizza set?? Favorite pizza: lately its a lot like the one you made at our get together: thin crust, mozzarella, goat cheese, roasted red peppers, basil… now i want pizza too!

  2. Oooh, my favorite pizza is a tough one, but I think I would have to go with pepperoni and pineapple for nostalgia-value!

  3. thin crust, no tomato sauce (weird, i know!), and pretty much any other toppings, plus hot sauce, of course! i do love anchovies and capers on pizza!

  4. My favorite pizza is one I made last weekend: buffalo chicken pizza. I used Trader Joe’s whole wheat dough, made a pizza sauce with half spicy garlic wing sauce from Buffalo Wild Wings and half spicy red pepper Classico pasta sauce, top with mild cheddar, chopped broccoli and diced sauteed chicken breast (seasoned with a little celery seed and black pepper) and sprinkle on some crumbled blue cheese. Absolutely loved it!

    What in the world kind of bird is that in your foggy lake shot–it looks HUGE!

  5. You make homemade pizza look so easy! I need to experiment with that more often. My favorite pizza is one loaded with veggies, but then I do like a more simple pizza such as margarita pizza!

  6. So funny, because I have a crazy craving for pizza today, haha! How sweet of you to have this giveaway for your readers!! Andrew and I have always wanted to make a deep dish (gluten-free) pizza!! Our favorite pizza is Buffalo Chicken Pizza!!!!!!!! 🙂

    I also want to try one you made – I think it was a Philly steak and cheese? I don’t remember, I need to go back b/c you get so creative! I also have a few magazines and books devoted to pizza creativity. It’s fun how original people get with the ideas on top of pizza!

    I love a pizza with spinach, feta, red onion and mozzarella…on a whole wheat crust!

  23. I am slightly disappointed that you didn’t go for the trifecta and have pizza for dinner…just to say that you did it! Twinfest sounds fun, as usual – you always seem to have a good time no matter what you are doing, lol!

    Don’t enter me in the giveaway because quite frankly I am too lazy to make my own pizza, although I wish that weren’t the case every time I see one of your creations!

  24. Only one favourite? I like anything on pizza dough! Although I’m usually lazy and pull out a pita to put it on 😛 making pizza dough is sort of like baking and I don’t bake. But if I buy the dough I’m okay 😛

    My favourite is probably pesto as the sauce with chicken and red onions (yea I know onions…)

    • I’ll forgive you for the onions! Hey, I made your soba noodle salad for my lunch tomorrow – amazing!! I did tweak it a bit – just added more veggies and made it spicier with sriracha! 😀

  25. I think pizza is a fine obsession, if one is obsessed with something. My favorite pizza is a nice greasy pepperoni, boringly delicious 🙂

  26. You always make me want to eat pizza.

    Mine is a toss up between ham and onion or barbque chicken. If I were to eat one right now it would be barbque chicken.

  27. I love soy cheese with portobella mushroom, roasted red peppers and hot peppers… Or broc, tomatoes, olives, mushrooms and peppers. And whole wheat crust. I love lots of veggies on my pizza.

  28. Pizza is quite possibly the world’s perfect food. I keep meaning to try your breakfast pizza!

    My fave is something Mediterranean or loaded with veggies. Usually with thin crust, but thick crust sure can be delicious!

  29. i love lotsa veggies!
