Pizza was on the menu tonight to use up the Trader Joe’s dough (which I still love, by the way). I didn’t feel like doing a “normal” pizza, so I decided on pesto, portabello, spinach and goat cheese.
Since basil isn’t exactly in season yet, I made an old favorite:
- 1 big bunch of cilantro
- 25 grams toasted walnuts (2-3 tbsp?)
- 25 grams grated parmesan (2-3 tbsp?)
- 1 tbsp olive oil
Puree in food processor. It’s pretty calorie dense even though I always cut back on the mix-ins, so watch your portion if you’re mindful of calories.
I just LOVE this crust!! I need to make something other than pizza with this dough. Bread bowls? Breadsticks? Just dough to eat!?
“One of these things does not belong”
Can you spot the slice of BBQ chicken pizza!? The husband and I traded slices.
I also opened a bottle of white wine to celebrate the warm weather and had a 4 oz pour.
All together for about 450 kcal, 9 grams fiber and 20 grams protein. Add 95 kcal for the wine!
Not sure what the evening plans are, but I’m just glad it’s the weekend 🙂
