Feeding the "new" tummys that we have in this place is a real challenge. At this point there is still some real sensitivity to spicy foods, and many meats are pretty challenging. We are really focused on getting enough protein everyday, and managing to make that happen between the limits to quantity and the limitations in what is "edible" at this stage is an interesting proposition. Too, what works one day might very well not be any good at all the next day. Arrrghhhh!
Anyway, both Master and T have been talking about pizza lately. And real pizza, the kind you order out for and have some nice kid deliver it to your door, is just not in the cards. So, I've been contemplating the problem of "pizza" in our new world.
Here's what I came up with -- bariatric pizza...
Suzie's Spelt Flat Breads with Italian Herbs
Classico Sauce -- Tomato and Basil
Sliced Provolone Cheese (2 slices)
Shredded Lowfat Mozzarella cheese
Grated Parmesan Cheese
Lou's Famous Oven Roasted Chicken Sausage -- Roasted Red Pepper and Garlic
Wellshire Canadian Style Seasoned Uncured Turkey Bacon
Preheat oven to 425. Thinnly slice the sausage and brown in a pan sprayed with Pam cooking spray. Set aside. Cut the Canadian Bacon into small dice and brown using Pam. Set aside.
Assemble the pizzas --
Lay flat breads on a cookie sheet. Brush lightly with olive oil. Spread a heaping spoonful of sauce on each flat bread. Top each "pizza" with toppings of choice (sausage, Canadian bacon, or pepperoni). Put provolone, mozzarella, and parmesan cheeses on each pizza and place into preheated oven for 10 minutes.
Bariatric portion -- 1 pizza.
