Homemade, easy, low calorie pizza dough!!

Pizza… everyone loves it, so you should probably eat it!

Image

I haven’t posted in a bit.. I had my 21st birthday on the 8th… then two days after my long time, best friend pet ferret died of old age. His name was Bubba, he was 12 and he was awesome. I haven’t felt like cooking but today I did, and it’s a comfort food too.

Anyway… on with the recipe!

This makes two medium crusts, and serves 8 per crust.

Calories:

This is only for the crust, so remember to add the toppings and sauce calories to this!

142 calories per slice, the dough is 2,275 calories all together.

Ingredients: 

  • 2 (.25oz) packets of yeast
  • 1/2tsp (or one packet) of Stevia
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 5 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup 0 calorie cooking spray
  • 2tsp sea salt
  • (optional) your choice of spices. I used cilantro and adobo.
  • Any pizza toppings

Directions: 

  • Preheat oven to 450
  • In a large bowl add the yeast, stevia, and warm water. Let sit for ten minutes.
  • After ten minutes add in the flour, cooking spray, sea salt, and optional spices.
  • Mix well until dough forms, it should be kind of sticky.
  • Separate dough into two even sized balls.
  • Roll out on to floured surface and knead for 1-2 minutes.
  • Spray two pizza pans with cooking spray.
  • Put the dough in the middle of the baking sheet, then use your hands with the help and shape of the pizza pan to make it into the shape of the crust.
  • When it looks good you can either leave as is, or roll the dough a bit for a deep crust like mine.
  • Add sauce and pizza toppings.
  • Cook in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until done!
  • Spray cooking spray on baking sheet

Fairly easy low calorie chicken pot pie! Low calorie crust included!

I got done scrubbing my kitchen today and immediately got the urge to mess it up again!

image

Annnd away we go…

Calories per serving:
This recipe makes two pies, each pie makes about 5 servings. There’s about 452 with top and bottom crust. With out the top crust it’s about 321.

Pie crust:
1 crust is 655 calories, this makes three for one top and bottom and one topless or one larger thicker top and bottom crust. This is the easy part, I love making crusts for some reason.

Ingredients:
2 3/4 cup flour
1tsp salt
1/2 cup vegetable 0 calorie cooking spray
1/2 cup fat free milk
1/3 cup water

Directions:
• Mix together flour and salt in a medium mixing bowl
• In your measuring cup add the cooking spray, then the milk but do not mix it
• Add the spray milk cup to the flour, then stir a little.
• When it starts forming add in 1/3 cup of water
• Divide into two balls, put them in plastic wrap and flatten them a bit. Let these sit in the fridge for at least 15 minutes, I left mine in until I needed it.
• Divide one ball into two (if you’re doing two pies and one has no top) and roll out on lightly floured surface.

Pot pie filling:
It’s around 950 calories for the filling.

Ingredients:
• 1lb of chicken
• 3tbsp of powdered beef broth mix
• 3 potatoes
• 1 small onion
• 1 package of frozen green beans
• 2 cups water
• You’ll need spices, add whatever you like! I used: oregano, onion powder, paprika, sea salt, and black pepper

Instructions:
• Cook thawed chicken in skillet, salt and pepper if you want. Cook it until it’s browning then put it on the cutting board to cool. After it’s cooled cut or tear it apart and put it in a bowl.
• While the chicken is cooking cut up the onion and potatoes and put them in a pot.
• Add the frozen greenbeans and 2 tbsp of gravy mix to the pot, then add your spices and mix it all around. Add the 2 cups of water and boil on high. While stirring occasionally.
• After it boils for about 2 minutes add the chicken and allow to boil for another 5 minutes with a lid on
• Turn heat to low on the pot, then preheat your oven to 375°F
• Allow pot to simmer for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally.
• Turn heat off on stove and add in 1tbsp of gravy mix and stir well. Let sit for about fifteen minutes, I rolled the dough out while I waited.
• Spray pie pans with cooking spray and put the crust in, then spoon the filling in, then add the top crust (or don’t).
• Bake for 30 minutes or until it feels done.

This is what it looks like before I cooked it!

Easy, eggless, low calorie, home made chicken fingers!

Chicken fingers are amazing for eating!

image

They’re pretty easy to make too!

Calories: 1 chicken finger is about 31 calories, 5 fingers is about 156. Makes around 36.
Ingredients:
• 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into thick strips then cut in half.
• 1/4 cup flour
• 1tbsp white vinegar + 1tsp baking soda
• 1/3 cup water
• 8 pieces of toast (each slice of my bread was 60 calories) broken up into breadcrumbs
• Spices! Choose whatever you feel you want. I used sea salt, black pepper, adobo, oregano, paprika, and onion powder.
• You will need three bowls for this, baking sheets/pizza pans, cooking spray, and tin foil

Instructions:
• Preheat oven to 450F
• Cut chicken (I left mine a little frozen still because its easier to work with)
• Put flour and your spices in one bowl
• In a different bowl add the vinegar, baking soda, and water. Mix together.
• Crumble toast into another bowl and add spices to this too and mix around. (When making the bread crumbs I tore up the toast, put in a plastic bag and smashed it up with my hands I don’t like my crumbs super fine though. If you do use a rolling pin to get it smaller)
• Line baking sheets with tin foil and spray with cooking spray
• Take your cut chicken and one by one roll them in the flour, then the vinegar baking soda water mix, and then in the bread crumbs.
• Cook for about 15 minutes or until crispy. Cut the biggest one in half to make sure they’re done!

These turned out really good, I made my boyfriend his own special pan of them covered in chilli powder.

Quick low-cal home made dinner rolls!

I like to eat, eating is great why not eat……… Image

Butter flavored dinner rolls! 😀 Easy, to make and they don’t take very long.

Calories: 139 per one roll, makes 12 rolls.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup  + 1 tbsp of warm water
  • 2 tbsp (normally two packets) of active dry yeast
  • 6 packets of stevia or 3 tsp of stevia
  • 1/3 cup of 0 calorie butter or olive oil spray (use liquid measuring cup) (some people might find it gross but honestly I can’t tell it’s in there and the butter flavored one makes the rolls taste really good)
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar + 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 1/2 cup flour.

Cooking:

  • Preheat oven to 400F
  • In your mixing bowl put in the water, yeast, stevia, and oil spray. Mix together and let it sit for 15 minutes.
  • After 15 minutes add in the white vinegar + baking soda, salt, and flout to the yeast mix.
  • Mix together until it forms a ball (it shouldn’t be very very sticky but it should stick to your hands)
  • Grease (I use oil spray) baking sheets and form dough into 12 balls and place them on the sheets (I suggest wetting your hands a bit to make the dough into balls so it doesn’t stick to you a lot)
  • Let rest for 10 minutes
  • Put in oven for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

I’m eating one with my dinner tonight!

Yay dinner of 615 calories but it’s okay I burned 307 calories so far today 😀
