21 Day Fix Approved Pizza Recipe
by Monica Koon | The Fit Club Network
Let’s talk about pizza, shall we? (Because this Italian “girl” loves her pizza.) It may feel like you’re cheating when you’re eating this 21 Day Fix approved pizza recipe, but you’re not. It’s 100% Fix compliant!
As you probably know already, Autumn Calabrese‘s 21 Day Fix meal plan is centered around clean eating and portion control. I absolutely love that this program takes the guess work and calorie counting out of my day. (I do not miss the days when I used to log every calorie to make sure I ended each day with a deficit so I would lose the weight.) The bad news is that you can’t put anything you want into the containers, BUT you will not be suffering.
The secret to this is learning how to deconstruct recipes and swap out the unhealthy ingredients with healthy ones. I want you to focus on learning how to do this, because it will help you be more successful with the 21 Day Fix!
Why is Pizza Unhealthy?
We all know that eating regular pizza is not conducive to losing weight. Here’s why—the typical large slice of fast food pepperoni pizza has about 310 calories, 13 grams of total fat (5 grams of which is saturated), and 720 milligrams of sodium.
Where does all this stuff come from?
- A thick crust made from refined white flour
- Sauce that likely contains sugar
- Way too much high fat cheese
- Super fatty and processed meat
How to Make a Healthy Pizza
Now, I’m going to share how I make a 21 Day Fix compliant and HEALTHY pizza.
Go grab the following HEALTHY ingredients and join me in the kitchen:
- Whole grain pita or flat bread (I use Trader Joe’s brand)
- Organic tomato paste (no sugar added)
- Chopped fresh veggies du jour (use what’s already in your fridge!)
- Low fat mozzarella cheese (I prefer fresh mozzarella, but you can use the low fat grated regular variety as well)
- Nitrate free ham or prosciutto
Pizza can actually be a healthy meal if you don’t overdo it on the crust, pile on high fat meat and cheese, and you DO load it up with veggies.
