Chicken Crust Pizza

Have you been craving pizza, but don't want all the carbs and fat?

Try making a pizza crust out of ground chicken!
Here is what you will need:

 

INGREDIENTS:

1 lb ground chicken
Eggs
Marinara
1/2-1 cup of fat free mozzarella
1/4 cup of reduced fat Parmesan cheese
Turkey pepperoni (or toppings of your choice)
1 tablespoon of onion powder
1 tablespoon of garlic salt
2 tablespoons of Italian seasoning
Parchment paper

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

In a bowl, mix the ground chicken, seasonings, Parmesan cheese and eggs.  You can use a whole egg, or two egg whites only.  It is up to you.  You can also add in 1/8 a cup of the fat free mozzarella if you like a cheesy crust.


Once the mixture is combined well, place it onto a parchment lined baking sheet.


Then, place another piece of parchment paper on top and begin pressing the chicken into the shape of the pizza crust.  The trick to this is to press it as thin and evenly spread as you can while still being able to peel off the top piece of parchment paper, without getting much chicken stuck to the top paper.


Putting a little non-stick cooking spray on the top piece of parchment paper before you lay it down can help you pull it off easier.





Now, place your crust into the oven for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked thoroughly.



Finally, spread on some marinara and sprinkle on the remaining fat free mozzarella cheese.  You can add whatever healthy toppings you would like.  This pizza has turkey pepperoni, but the possibilities are endless!


Bake for 8-10 more minutes and enjoy!

Post-Op and Recovery Update

Tomorrow will be one month since the removal of the GIST (Gastro-intestinal stromal tumor) in the lining of my stomach.  Quite a few people have been reaching out to see how I've been feeling and for an update on what's next. First off, the surgery went well.  My surgeon only had to make one incision in the mid-line of my abdomen, because as he started to cut, the tumor was visible immediately.  He said I was a "surgeons dream" since there wasn't much to cut through!  My pain was controlled well post-op and I did not have near as much nausea from the pain meds as I did from the lung biopsy.  They made sure to stay on top of giving me anti-nausea meds and even put a scopolamine patch behind my ear pre-op.  I stayed in the hospital for two nights and then was able to go home.  Recovery went well with no complications.  Over the last month, I've had a lot of emotional ups and downs.  Waiting on the results from the pathology on the tumor was difficult.  O

Surgery Update

If you read my last blog post, I left off with that I was home from my lung biopsy recovering and that the preliminary results showed up as "Organizing Pneumonia".  They did confirm that on the pathology, so my lungs are cancer free!  Praise God! I met with my Surgical Oncologist, Dr. Jeffery  Hardacre which let me tell you is one amazing man.  Not only does he seem highly qualified to care for me, but he has an incredible bedside manner.  He took his time to explain everything to my husband and I and answered all of our crazy questions.  I feel very confident in his hands and he seems to be very optimistic about things.   I am scheduled to go into surgery with him tomorrow for the removal of the gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST).  If you haven't heard of this type of tumor, it's not your typical "stomach cancer".  Stomach cancer actually grows inside your stomach and could be a lot worse than a GIST.  This tumor is in the "wall/lining" of

Make Every Day Count

I woke up Tuesday June 18th of this year not feeling right.     Every time I stood up I felt light headed and nauseous. I thought to myself, “here comes baby number 3” and laid back down in bed.     If you know me well, then you know I sent my husband to the store to get a pregnancy test.     I am always taking those things with the slightest inkling that I might be pregnant.     When I saw the test was negative I was surprised.     As the day went on I became more light headed, and my heart was racing just walking from room to room.     This was so far from my norm, so I decided to go to the emergency room.     The doctors ran a few different tests and found that my hemoglobin level was 8.1.    For those of you who don’t know what hemoglobin is - it is the oxygen carrying component of red blood cells. The normal range for a female is 12-15.    This explained my symptoms, but we weren’t sure of the exact cause.    You also don’t normally get a blood transfusion until your leve
