Pita Pizza and Salad

Friday night is a perfect pizza night...it just takes a little adjusting!
Pita Pizza- 3 blocks
1 whole wheat pita pocket (2 blocks carbs)
1 TB pizza sauce (negligible)
9 turkey pepperoni (2 blocks protein/ 1 block fat)
1/2 oz shredded mozzarella/ 1/2 oz shredded cheddar (1 block protein/ 1 block fat)
Mixed green salad (2 blocks carbs/ 2 blocks fat)
I eat half the pizza (cut all the block counts in half) with the salad. If you want the whole pizza, eat that alone as your meal. Post thoughts to comments.

Trixie-
I generally use mixed baby greens with kidney beans, feta or goat cheese, pecans (or any chopped nuts, and sometimes I will break up 3-4 croutons. Top with olive oil and balsamic vinegar mixed. Enjoy!

I am a little confused about how to count cheese. In the list we got from the main site, mozz. cheese is just 1 block of protein. However, you count it as a block each of fat and cheese. Now, I know that the fat content of cheese varies considerably. Could you illuminate?

Miriam,

Each type of cheese is different. Mozzarella generally has the least amount of fat, but I have not found one that has less than 1 block of fat per oz. Check the labels of whatever brand and type of cheese you are using to make sure you are counting everything you should be. 1 block of fat is equal to 3 grams. Make sure to check the serving size on that as well! Let me know if that answered your question...otherwise track me down in the gym and we can go over it!
