Day 6 of the Engine 2 28-day challenge and it hasn't been that hard because I've got a great support system and am staying positive. Today, I was going to make the Engine 2 sweet potato lasagna, but time got the best of us and it was going to be tight to make that dish and check out a movie with a friend. I could have got upset that "this diet" was eating into time I could be spending with friends, or I could be flexible and adjust my dinner plans. The solution: Engine 2 pizza. It takes only 10 minutes to prep and 15 minutes to cook and it is very satisfying (and fun to design your pizza.) It doesn't have to be either good health or fun.
Engine 2 Pizza (3-4 servings) (modified from Engine 2 Supreme Pizza)
4-6 whole wheat pita (low sodium, no oil)
1 can no salt added canned tomatoes (with basil)
1/2 T mexican oregano
1/2 T garlic powder
red chili flakes
1 can of black olives (rinsed)
1 can artichoke hearts (rinsed)
1 green pepper
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. On stove top, heat up tomatoes with garlic, chili flakes and oregano. Dice or chop veggies. Sauce your pita (or tortilla) and pile on the veggies (feel free to experiment). Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
