Pizza Time!

I've always been a hungry person, but being pregnant made me even more hungry. I thought that issue would go away after the delivery, but I was horrible mistaken. Being a breastfeeding runner has made me into a raging carb monster! To fight the raging carb monster urges to eat waffles and pizza for every meal, I've been trying my hand at eating more spinach salads, vegetables, and oatmeal with fruit. Leo and I are both trying to eat more fruits and veggies these days. It helps immensely when it's a team effort to eat better! And, since there's a little human that takes in the nutrients I'm eating, it makes me think twice about what I'm eating each day.

Not to say there's anything wrong with eating pizza from time to time. Especially if it's homemade instead of Domino's! Tomorrow's game plan is a homemade "healthy" pizza for supper. I never have yeast in the cupboard, so the below recipe has been a lifesaver. I make the pizza crust, following the below recipe, add whatever toppings we want, and viola! There's our homemade pizza. Tomorrow's pizza will be topped with sausage, cheese, green peppers, onion, and spinach. Mmm mmm... *Pictures have been added below!

Ready for the oven.
Bake for 15 minutes and serve!
