Whole Wheat Pizza Crust and a Mint Chocolate Shake

November 30, 2010

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.

See how thin I rolled the dough? Now THAT'S a perfect crust!

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.

Remind me to ask Santa for a pizza stone!

Before baking...oops! Forgot the green onion!

Ahh, there's the green onion! Much better! Now into the oven we go...!

The original recipe said to bake for 30 minutes, but I only baked for 20 minutes.

Mmm, I wish you could have smelled this!

I calculated the calorie information for the pizza and 1/8 of the pizza was only 220 calories! Mission accomplished!

Sorry for the bad lighting, the sun goes down so early now, so I had to revert to inside photos!

After one slice I was still feeling hungry…hungry for some protein! I had Julie’s Thin Mint Protein Shake *drool*.

My new favorite Green Monster! So tasty!

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!”

Haha, WIN!

    How much peppermint extract did you put in your shake? It looks good!

      You only need a tiny little bit, like 1/8 teaspoon! A little goes a looong way!

      Oh, sorry! 😉 Haha!

      My mom has had the thin mint shake twice since I posted this! She LOVES it! Haha, and she can’t believe it’s healthy!

    Your smoothie looks so good! I’ll have to try out that peppermint extract — I’ve never used it before in a smoothie.
