The Joys of Leftover Pizza

So, I got my run in (about 3.2 miles), which was awesome because the weather here simply glorious and I love run next to the bay overlooking downtown. I ate an early lunch of leftover pizza and fruit…love it! I had 3.5 slices this time (I’m telling you the slices are small….I feel sort of like a pig saying I ate almost 4 slices but what I ate was about a 6 inch pizza because I ate half the 12 inch last night and half for lunch today. That’s not so bad, right?!)  and I shredded more FYH mozz. on top and broiled again. I know this cheese is supposed to melt but I seem to be having some issues here! Does anyone have advice on how to get it all melty? It tastes good…def. perfect for making pizza with…but I just wanted it to melt more than it did! I’ll have to work on this…..


I’m off to run errands here in Tampa then head back to Orlando to grocery shop, cook, study and go to class! See you for dinner!

    I ran by the bay yesterday. it is awesome. Glad you had a good run and tasty pizza. I have no idea what to do with the ‘cheese’ though…

    Jenna ~ don’t feel guilty, your pizza is healthy & tiny! If three pieces fit on one plate, they must be pretty small hehe…yum!

    leftover pizza = delish! you’re fine, don’t worry about extra slices :0)

    you MUST melt the FYH “cheese” under a broiler, at about 400°F. Check out this link for FYH melting tips:

    Yeah, the broiler is the only way, but even then it is finicky. I live in a very dry climate, so almost all of the “cheeses” haven’t been able to melt. We have taken to cheeseless pizza and are loving it really. Even my former cheese-loving husband now prefers his pizza this way!

    Those pizza slices do look small- the ones my school that would literally be one piece. Plus without the cheese, so don’t worry!

    That was a horrible written sentence- but you got the idea. Opps!

    I could easily eat three pieces of pizza! Well, not NY pizza, but those slices look tiny.

    Do you subscribe to any yoga type magazines? I browsed through one once and it almost seems like too much of a good thing- a little on the boring side. None of the mainstream ones seem to talk about yoga at all though. I subscribe to self, maybe another one of the fitness magazines do. I’d love to hear what your suggestions.

    Hey everyone! I just posted this on Kath’s page-so sorry for everyone who has to read this twice!
    Does anyone have any ideas for some healthy pub inspired foods? I told my friend that I would make us a bunch of pub-like appetizer’s but I don’t want them to add up to a million calories (especially since we’ll be drinking beer & clam with it all). Also, I’m making this on Thursday and then will be gone for the long weekend, so I can’t make too much stuff because otherwise it’ll go bad in my fridge. So far I’m thinking chicken wings, edamame beans and a crab caesar salad…but I’m not sure how pub like that is (besides the wings).
    Obviously I’m not a vegetarian, but vegetarian options are welcome (I was a vege for 6 years and still only eat fish & chicken).
    Thanks everyone!

    If you’re officially switching to soy cheese.. you gotta try TEESE!! I’ve been pushing it like crazy ever since I first tried it because honestly – it’s freaking fantastic. it melts no prob, and it doesn’t get that funny smell/texture that some soy cheeses do. Veggie Shreds melt pretty well too.. but I think that’s the brand you had last time and didn’t really like.

    LONG STORY SHORT.. try Teese – you’ll be hooked! Their website is (*don’t be thrown off by their iffy website. Trust me.. their cheeze makes up for it!)

    Hummus or black bean dip w/ veggies and baked pita chips is healthy and easy to make.
    You could also make a pot of chili (bean or w/ ground turkey/chicken) and serve it w/ garnishes like diced onion, lowfat cheese/sour cream, and acocado slices.
    Quesadillas w/ lowfat cheese, grilled chix, whole wheat tortillas and salsa/guacomole.
    Baked potato skins. Slice baked potatoes in half scoop out some of the center to make room for topping and top with anything ie: shredded lowfat cheese, mushrooms, onions, broccili, salsa, grill chix, chili, lowfat sour cream…
    Baked chicken fingers: cut boneless skinless chix breasts in strips, dip in egg whites and then bread crumbs and bake. Serve with honey mustard, sweet and sour, bbq, or any dipping sauce you like.
    I hope this is helpful.
    Jenna don’t feel guilty, that’s not that much food, its mainly veggies!

    i usually add a little olive oil to the shredded cheeze and it works out a bit better. it will never really get as melty as cow’s milk mozzarella though, unfortunately.

    I’m not sure if you’ve posted that you have before, but Vegan Rella melts really really well and it tastes fantastic.
