Pizza night at the Monkey House

As I decided earlier, we had our pizza party tonight to celebrate 10 pounds gone. Headed off to the grocery, where I cashed in the random change from my purse. The grand total was $11.11, so I spent that dollar on a lottery ticket, lol. Lots of fresh veggies, some whole wheat tortillas, and more feta cheese (cause I’m an addict).

First, we got our sauce started. That’s 1 can of crushed tomatoes, 1 can of petite diced tomatoes, some garlic, basil, oregano, and crushed red pepper. 262 calories for the entire pot of sauce…

While the sauce simmered, I cut up the veggies and monkey tore up the cheese (light string cheese, at 50 cal. each, we used 3 for 2 pizzas). We also lightly sprayed a couple of whole wheat tortillas and put them in the oven (400 degrees) for 2 minutes per side to crisp them up.

Assembly time! Monkey decided she wanted a smiley face with broccoli hair. Mine was a few inches thick, only with veggies instead of deep dish crust πŸ™‚ (I gave the sauce a whirl through the blender so it was more familiar for the monkey…)

A few minutes in the oven at 400 degrees, and our pizzas were done. πŸ™‚ In hindsight, next time I’ll cook my peppers a bit because I like them a little softer (may try roasting them first), but in all, absolutely DELICIOUS! This was the closest I’ve gotten since I moved away from the city to my old “freak pizza,” at my favorite pizza place, with about a tenth of the calories, grease, and fat. Lol, yes, I made up for a few of those calories by having a beer with my pizza. πŸ™‚ And the even better news? In the time it’s taken me to figure out how to get all these pictures in my post, Monkey has almost cleaned her plate.

Happy Pizza night from the Monkey House!

  1. Ok, experienced bloggers. Overall, I’m happy with the way this turned out, but I can’t figure out how the gray boxes appeared around some pics, some text, and sometimes both. Also, my font kept changing, and I can’t find the way to change it. Suggestions?
