Really Quick and Easy Pizza for Lunch
Anyway, to the product. I was worried about buying this package of Spicy Spinach Pizza crusts because of that "bad" word, spicy! I don't like spicy. But, I thought... hmm... I have been able to bump from mild to hot sauce at Taco Bell upon becoming an adult, so let's give it a try. Just to make sure, I asked the worker prepping food and she told me that no, they were not that spicy, and that if I felt that they were, not to worry because I could bring them back for a full refund. Wow! She told me I could bring anything back for a full refund if I didn't like it or felt it was misrepresented somehow.
Ok, so I got these babies home and made some quick toaster oven pizzas for lunch. I included some white cheese, pre-cooked chicken breast pieces from near the lunch meat section, and from another grocery store (another of my new favorite finds) roasted mild green chili peppers with lime juice and cilantro. --->
Oh, and are the pizza crusts spicy? NOT AT ALL! In fact, I think TJ's should consider changing the packaging because it is misleading and I am guessing that people who avoid spicy food, will avoid them for no reason, and people who love spicy food will buy them and be disappointed. I hope this product hangs around because I love them!
Doesn't it look delish? And it only took about 3 minutes to prep and about 5 minutes to bake in the toaster oven. I finished it for a minute or two on the broil setting, but stayed near the toaster oven to watch the browning on the crust. Don't you love that retro Corelle plate too, courtesy of my mom!
I don't know the total calorie count or anything, but each Spicy Spinach Pizza has 140 calories, 5 g protein, only 2g fat, 3g sugar, 380 mg sodium, and no transfat. The Simply Sliced Roast Chicken Breast has 110 calories per 3 slices (plenty for one pizza) and 2.5 g of fat. The green chili peppers only contain sodium (no fat), and the cheese really depends on what kind you use. All in all, I think it's a pretty good low-fat lunch.
