Hello friends. Today I will demonstrate my technique for slaying your nightmarish pizza cravings. This is a quick and tasty treat for those of you that are trying to gain some muscle mass… This is for those of you who don’t want to stand around dicing and spicing everything fancy. Yes, a recipe for average buff people that want pizza.

I am bulking myself, so of course my aim is to pack in as much protein as I can in everything I do. If that is your goal, please enjoy!

I decided to create my own thin crust pizza, loaded with protein, light on fat… And a pinch of sodium, because lets face it… We can’t have our cake and eat it too. So please don’t mention the sodium, or I will flip the frick out.

Ingredients

  • 1 Whole grain wrap tortilla

  • 1 Cup fat free mozzarella cheese(You guys will get used to this fat free cheese thing I promise, it is a great source of protein)

  • 1/4 Cup of your favorite spaghetti sauce (Read the can, some of them are LOADED with sugar. Don’t even get me started on how frustrating this can be.)

  • 1 Serving supreme pizza vegetable mix

  • 1 Serving low fat turkey pepperoni(There’s that sodium, mmm.)

  • 1 Servings of  low fat turkey sausage crumbles(Yeah, they make these and they are freaking great. Go on, ask me where I found them!)

  • Olive oil and garlic powder (Extremely optional.)

Directions

You should have a non-stick cookie sheet pizza pan somewhere. If not go pick one up.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Spray down your cookie sheet lightly with fat free cooking spray. Heck if you are not concerned about fat, use a tiny dab of olive oil and sprinkle some garlic powder on it.

Lay your whole grain wrap tortilla upon the garlic powder ever so gently, so as not to bruise it. This will give it a smokey garlic taste for all you fancy chef types.

Dump on your spaghetti sauce, and spread around the center, leaving about 1/4 inch gap around the edge. This will give it the appearance of actually being a pizza.

Sprinkle half of the cheese upon the sauce, using the two handed pizza dusting method for even distribution.

Apply a thin layer of pepperoni.

Apply the turkey sausage crumbles.

Apply the frozen veggies.

Now cover the toppings with the remaining cheese.

Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes or until the desired crispy level is reached.

Cut into fours and enjoy!

Makes 1 Pizza.
