Whole Wheat Pizza Crust and a Mint Chocolate Shake
Well, I made the whole wheat pizza crust that I mentioned earlier.
It was perfect! It rose wonderfully and it tasted awesome! Jessica is a genius! I followed her recipe exactly.
Here’s a tip for getting the dough to rise: cover the dough with saran wrap and place it in a cold oven with the light on. The light will give off just enough heat to really help along the rising process.
I topped my pizza with 1 T. olive oil, garlic powder (I should have done lots more!), 2 cups mozzarella cheese, 5 T. Parmesan cheese, 1 1/2 sliced tomatoes and green onion.
The original recipe said to bake for 30 minutes, but I only baked for 20 minutes.
I calculated the calorie information for the pizza and 1/8 of the pizza was only 220 calories! Mission accomplished!
After one slice I was still feeling hungry…hungry for some protein! I had Julie’s Thin Mint Protein Shake *drool*.
Thin Mint Protein Shake
- 2 large handfuls spinach
- 1 1/2 scoops chocolate protein powder (45 g)
- 1 cup milk
- 1/8 teaspoon mint extract
- 5 ice cubes
Blend until creamy and green!
Julie wasn’t kidding when she said it tastes like a Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookie! My mom is a HUGE fan of Thin Mints and I let her try some of it, and she (the one who usually makes faces at my spinach concoctions) said “This is actually really good!”
