Mr. W's Low Cal Meatsa Pizza
Happy Friday, I am so grateful the weekend is here. Big plans for the weekend, food, family, friends and football!
I am not much of a football fan, but when the Giant's are playing that all changes. In 2008 Mr W was rooting for the Patriots and I was cheering on the Giant's, well we know how that played out. GO NEW YORK!
So, Friday has become less about decadence in the form of sweets. It is more about having a treat that we do not indulge in during the week. This Friday it is Mr. W's Low Calorie Meatsa Pizza. With a mere 157 calories per slice!!! I can make all the fancy pizza's I can think of and Mr. W always comes back to a meat pizza of some sort. I am sure he would put corn and potatoes on top if he could... Hmmm... Shepherds Pie Pizza... I will have to think about that one. Mr. W said he isn't sold. We'll see.
Anyway, enjoy this amazing pizza and your weekend, football filled or not!!!
