Homemade Pizza!

Andrea recently posted her pizza dough recipe. I bookmarked it and planned to make it myself. Well last night was the night!


I put on my Pom apron and got to work!


I already had a huge bag of organic whole wheat flour so I used that instead of the spelt or all purpose flour. I will try spelt once I'm out of whole wheat though! Other than that, I followed Andrea's recipe exactly. Her tips were so helpful!


Here's the dough before it rose. I covered it with a warm, damp towel for 4 hours to let it rise. It rose a ton!


Once it was dinner time, I rolled it out and topped it with pesto and steamed spinach. 2 cups of spinach to be exact. It wilts down a ton!


Then I added broccoli, red bell pepper, 3 sliced chicken sun-dried tomato sausages and mozzarella cheese. I was going to add artichokes too but it was already fully loaded.


I put it in the oven for 15 mins at 400 degrees. It was perfect after that!


Andy and I each had 2 slices on a salad plate. We have 5 slices left! This makes a lot of pizza.

Pizza Toppings:

1 sliced red bell pepper
1 cup loosely packed shredded mozzarella. (I grate it myself, it's better!)
1 cup chopped broccoli
2 cups wilted spinach
3 chicken sausages sliced
2 tbsp pesto. (more would be great!)

Thanks for the dough recipe, Andrea! I will definitely make it again and again. It was so much cheaper than buying premade dough.


I bought these heel inserts yesterday after my doctor's appointment. I ran 3.3 slow miles on the treadmill with them in my shoes last night. My heel still hurts but not as much as usual.

With that said, I decided to run another 5k with Andy! And my sister Sarah, possibly?

Its on Sunday April 25th and I plan on improving my time by 2-3 mins. I plan on tackling this by doing some interval training. Check it out! Hopefully it will work for me! I'm planning on running 4x a week and strength training with Jillian Michael's 2x a week. I'll take 2 days off so I might do 2 workouts in a day sometimes.

What are your training plans for April?

I've tried various low-carb, low-calorie, and low-fat diets for the past couple of years. Although the Atkins diet is very popular, it made me feel somewhat unhealthy.

The diet plan I'm on right now is the Medifast Diet. The caloric intake is roughly 800-1000 calories. However, it doesn't make my body feel weak. It is a bit of a pricey diet, but there are plenty of coupons available on the internet. You should never pay full price.

My advice is just choose a diet plan which your body reacts positively to. No one knows your body better than you do!

YaY!! I'm so glad that you made it and it turned out well! :D Once you do it a few times it becomes second nature and takes like 5 minutes total to put together.
