I can’t believe we are in the last week of 101 days of summer challenge! While I am not complete happy with how I handled the challenge, I have no one to blame but myself. I only have 20 pounds to go to get to my goal of 140 – and I am determined to get there by Christmas. I may start a challenge from Labor Day to New Years – anyone else interested?
I have Jacky to thank for the idea of my lunch yesterday. You guys knew I couldn’t go a whole week without pizza right?! Holy cow, this one hits all the marks – the crust was crispy, the sweetness of the fig against the tang of the goat cheese and the mortadella – I think the balsamic and olive oil greens on top brought this pizza all together.
I made a super easy pizza dough – 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup warm water, 1 tsp. yeast and 1 tsp. salt – I used half of the dough for the pizza below. This whole dough would be 12 points.
Fig, Goat Cheese and Mortadella Pizza
- 1/2 of simple pizza dough
- 4 tablespoons fig (I used the leftover balsamic figs Tony made, but you can buy canned figs)
- 1 ounce goat cheese
- 1 ounce mortadella, sliced
- 1/2 cup mixed greens
- 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon good olive oil
Heat oven to 425. Roll out dough and pre-bake the dough for 4-5 minutes, or until you can shake it off the pan. Spread figs on the bottom. Dot with the goat cheese and sprinkle the mortadella over the pizza. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the crust starts to brown.
Chop the greens and toss with the olive oil and balsamic. Toss over the hot pizza and try not to burn your mouth .
The best part is that this whole pizza was only 13 points! And since I only had a banana and a 1 point cheese stick for breakfast, I ate the whole thing.
My pizza fix is satisfied, but I can’t wait to make this one again. Thanks for the idea Jacky!
I did most of the prep work yesterday for my SIL’s birthday Mexican fiesta today. All I have left to make is the cilantro rice and cook the marinated meats. But I still have lunches to make:
- torellini and spinach soup
- thai pork with broccoli and rice
- smoky pinto beans and spinach tacos
- zucchini lasagna
- black bean soup and spinach quesadillas
Have a great Sunday!
