Weekly WI and Party Pizza Friday?

I had one super ripe banana and I had pumpkin waffles in my freezer, and thought of making a banana topping – I cut up the banana, added 2 tablespoons of skim milk, and 1/4 cup of sugar free pancake syrup, turned it on low and let it simmer while I took a shower.ย  The topping comes in at ony 1 point! ๐Ÿ˜€

When I came back it was all bubbly and the bananas almost disolved – with two pieces of turkey sausage on the side, breakfast comes in at 7.ย  Hannah thought I had refried beans over the waffles when she saw the picture – while this isn’t the most photographic, this was delicious!

I didn’t have my workout bag with me at lunch, but being that it was sunny and 37, and I keep a pair of gym shoes under the desk, I got moving!

A quick 50 minute walk was wonderful.ย  I had so much energy in the afternoon I was a filing fool at work. ๐Ÿ˜€

It was slim pickings by Friday – so I had a plate of nachos – 1 oz. tortilla chips, 2 ounces taco meat, diced green pepper, taco sauce, hot sauce and cilantro – this plate comes in at 9 points.

So I came home and literally had no idea what to make.ย  As I was going back and forth from the pantry, fridge and freezer, Tony says “do you have stuff to make pizza?”ย  Why yes I do!

Show of hands how many of you have made my no rise pizza dough?ย  What?ย  You are dialing a phone, calling your local pizza place and waiting over an hour to get your pizza when you could have my pizza in 30 minutes?

No Rise Pizza Dough

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Mix together.ย  Done.ย ย  This is enough dough for two 14 inch pizzas (thin crust).ย  Just put the dough on your counter and add enough so that it isn’t sticky – about 1/4 cup more flour.ย  Roll out and add your toppings.ย  Be sure to use a fork on the dough before adding your toppings so it doesn’t bubble up on you.

Tony had a simple sausage pizza. Well, actually Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage because that’s all I had – he liked it!

Here is my pizza porn pics:ย  ham, green pepper, chopped hot peppers and cilantro on top as it came out of the oven.

My guess is that 2/3 of the pizza I ate was 15 points.ย  So yummy!

Drum roll please . . .

-1.2!ย  I’ll take it.ย  I plan to do strength training at least three times this week, and I think I am going to do a lower carb meal plan – my average blood sugar this past week was 167 so I am going to try to bring that down.ย  I have my diabetes doctor appointment on Friday, February 3. ๐Ÿ˜€

I know for sure I am making Kerstin’s Indian Spiced Mini Meatball soup.ย  Love the combination of flavors!ย  What’s on your menu next week?ย  Recipe links would be appreciated!ย  Enjoy your Saturday!

  1. Congrats on the weight loss this week Biz.

    It’s beautiful where you take your walks. We’re having these beautiful winter days too these days, love it.

    The nachos look delicious!

  2. When I have french toast I mash up a banana with cinnamon and a little bit of almond milk to put on top! I even mix pb in it for protein sometimes! So good!

    And now I want pizza! That looks DELICIOUS!

  3. Banana topping is a great idea! I’ll have to try that.

    The pizzas look awesome. Totally food porn. Imagine how great they’d look with onions! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a great weekend, it’s raining here, so I’ll be cleaning!!

  11. Good for you for exercising outside and for having a positive plan for eating this week. Sorry to say I feel about bananas like you feel about onions. Nuf said. Pizza, though, is another story. Pizza porn indeed! I think this is a recipe for the day after my WI!

  12. That is a great loss this week Biz. You should be very proud of yourself for staying on plan through everything the past few weeks. This loss is huge in my opinion. Looks like it was a gorgeous day for a winter walk. We’ve been spoiled this winter. The fresh air is so invigorating.

    I have never tried that dough. You make it look so easy, but I have had a tough time with pizza dough in the past. You’ve convinced me to give it another try. Your pizza looks so delicious.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  13. Congrats on the weight loss! That banana topping does kind of look like beans!

    I have not made your pizza dough but I like how easy it is When I get back to having more carbs I will try it for sure. I have don’t have a menu for next week made out yet but since I am doing the 17 Day Diet it will be either chicken or fish and veggie side dishes. I do plan on trying some different simple pan sauces to top the protein with and keep things from becoming boring!

  14. I thought you topped the waffles with creamed corn….lol

    ๐Ÿ™‚ PIZZA PARTY! My favorite!

  15. ooh! Congrats on a great WI! ๐Ÿ™‚ LOSER! ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Congrats! With everything that’s been going on too, you are doing fabulous!
    That pizza looks delicious! I could go for a slice right about now. ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. GREAT WI!!! Those are the numbers I want to start seeing!

    I have to admit – I have no clue what I’m waiting for. I so need to make your crust – your pizzas always look to die for!!!
