Pizza for lunch

21 06 2009

I bought a Boboli 100% whole wheat pizza crust last week, so today I decided to try it out for lunch.

On the dough I layered:

  • a couple of spoons of tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup part skim ricotta
  • 1/2 cup blend of shredded whole milk mozarella, fontina, provolone, parmesan
  • a bunch of fresh basil leaves pinched from my plant
  • cracked pepper

It wasn’t very good. I forgot to hold the basil until after baking. Oops. Realized it after it went in the oven. The crust was really dense and didn’t puff up much.

I finally was able to move my bike upstairs, with help from both my parents. It now has a prime spot in front of the TV. Last night my mom used it for half an hour while watching the chinese version of American Idol (Kuai Le Nu Sheng). I love it because it takes so little space and it’s so quiet. I’m not sure if the bike is going to stay in front of the TV, but my parents never watch TV there anyway so I doubt they’d mind. Here’s my sweet setup:

In other news, this is where my shin hurts!

I can’t tell if the pain is from under the bone, or in between a bone and a muscle, or what. Doctor’s appointment tomorrow.

Dinnertime. Mom made ribs braised in soy sauce, wine, and brown sugar. YUM.

yay welcome to blogging! The pizza looks delicious- sorry it didn’t taste so great! I’ve not tried the wholewheat Boboli but tried the white one once and that was a disappointment…have heard pittas make good crust?

The bike is intrigueing me- is it different from a regular exercise bike? I want to start cycling again but it’s too risky (osteoporosis) so have been toying with the idea of an exercise bike…hmmm…

Ellie,

I don’t think pizza can ever taste good on dough that’s pre-baked. Haha. Next time I’ll pick up some raw dough from a pizzeria or something 😀

The bike has a weighted flywheel, so it’s supposed to simulate real riding on the road. The resistance is very even and smooth. I think conventional “stationary bikes” are electric and use a magnetic resistance, and they’re generally more upright and you can’t tinker with the seating position as much. Everything just feels so much better on an indoor cycling bike.

Sorry about the osteoporosis… I don’t know what the difference would be between on the road and on an indoor bike. Good luck 🙂

What did the doctor say about your pain there? I have a similar pain from running and am curious 🙂
