While meal planning on Sunday, Darin and I talked about making pizza but wanted to stray away from too much “dough”. We have been noshing on a lot of Ezekiel bread tortillas lately and decided to make our own form of “personal pan pizzas”. Speaking of, did anyone used to do Book It! in elementary school? I remember trips to Pizza Hut with my special paper with stars on it saying I had read so many books and therefore deserve my own personal pan pepperoni pizza. Oh those were the days…

Pesto Chicken Personal Pizzas

Ingredients:

– (6) Ezekiel Bread Tortillas

– (2) tomatoes

– (4) tbsp of Pesto

– (1.5) cups of Shredded Mozzarella

– (4) cooked chicken breasts (not pictured above)

Steps

Preheat oven to 375. Cook chicken breasts with salt and pepper, set aside to cool then chop into chunks. Chop a tomato into small pieces.

Lay out tortillas on baking pan and spread a light layer of pesto on the base of 6 tortillas.

 

Add tomatoes and chicken on top of the pesto.

Distribute the cheese evenly among the 6 tortillas on top.

Bake in the oven at 375 for 5-7 minutes. After the cheese was starting to melt, I turned it to broil for about 1 minute to toast it up and then took them out.

These pizzas turned out so well and I definitely want to make them with other toppings, these were just a mix of what we had in the house.

Obviously I dug in and wasn’t ashamed.

I probably looked like this in Pizza Hut 15 years ago.

Fitness

Last night at the gym I did a 10 minute warm-up and then did the following leg workout.


Clock Lunges- do 15 sets on left leg-1 forward lunge, 1 side lunge and 1 backwards lunge and then do 15 sets on right leg. Burn baby!

Jump Squat with Weight– Squat down with weight in hand (I used 15lb), jump up in the air and return back down into squat.
Weighted Squats– Stand with feet hip width apart, squat down keep knees in line with ankles and stand back up. I held 30 lb weights for this.
Plie Scissor Jumps with Weight- Hold weight in hand (I used 15lb), plie squat down and jump up scissoring your feet together before returning back into plie squat.

My legs were shaking during this workout and today I’m sore but I feel great! Make sure to stretch your hamstrings, quads and calves after this workout.
 
Tomorrow is Friday! Can you believe it? The weeks seem to speed by for me lately. I have a Thirsty Thursday smoothie recipe for you later tonight, stay tuned!
 
What is your favorite leg workout? I’d love some inspiration from you!
