Lunch {Mini Steak & Blue Cheese Pizzas}

Clean Eating Magazine April/May 2013

This recipe is much more involved than the others. It asks me to turn to Page 83 in Clean Eating Magazine for the recipe.

Then, once I'm there, the recipe calls for me to make some whole wheat pizza dough from scratch. Eyelids at half-mast, WHAT?!  Of course, if you know me, you know what I'm going to tell you next.

I did it.

I do love that Page 83 tells you exactly where to find a recipe on their website. You can find it here. So, I spent a few hours preparing my first "clean" pizza dough. I've never made pizza dough before. A large part of the motivation here, people, is that those Steak & Blue Cheese Pizzas look goooooood.

From the pantry:
Honey, sea salt, whole wheat flour, active yeast, olive oil
Note: I recently switched out my while flour for whole wheat.

Bought for recipe:
vital wheat gluten (still don't know what that is)

Dough Ingredients

Unbaked Dough

Done Dough {Alliteration}

Swear to God it was actually easy and they turned out great! So cute, right?!  This is only half of the dough. I froze the other half.  Also, one serving is two Mini Pizzas. Hubby gets to have a serving. The meal is repeated as leftovers on Tuesday.  Now, back to the original recipe.

From the pantry:
Pepper, sea salt, olive oil spray, balsamic vinegar

Bought for recipe:
Arugula, blue cheese, steak, onion


It's About to Come Together

This smelled amazing. That balsamic vinegar reduced down into a syrup. The onions & steak were sizziling.  It's just so interesting how my portion sizes have simply changed. I get a small bit of steak and small sprinkles of cheese.  And really, there is no need to gorge myself on these pizzas. The flavor is huge. Both pizzas make up a nice serving size. No Chelseas will go hungry by eating this meal.
