Sauce-less pizza

You know, you can get inspiration from anywhere...

The other day while watching the food network, I was watching this show called "Chef at Home". Interesting show. Can't say it is my favorite..but they guy has this HUGE walk-in pantry that looks really cool...

..anyway, the other day he was making pizzas and the one that caught my eye was the "Margaritta" pizza. This is a sauceless pizza with just tomato slices and cheese. That's it. (Well..a little olive oil on the dough so it doesn't get soggy)

So last night I made pizzas and one of those was the Margaritta pizza. I also made a sauce-less carmelized onion pizza. (And yes, for the kids I made a plain old cheese pizza WITH sauce.)

Hey lemme tell ya, those were GOOD! The tomato slices and the onions were from our trip towards Ojai so they were just great and very tasty!

Pizza is just cool....

Margarita pizzas are good. A nice change.

By the way, Pizza Connection near me on Winnetka & Sherman Way makes a great roasted veggie pizza.

As a matter of fact, the sauceless pizzas that I mentioned WERE thin crust.

I am not sure what would be considered non-diet about a pizza, other than the fat in the cheese..and motzerella (sp) can easily be found in "fat free" form. (Although I certainly don't limit myself to just one kind of cheese..but then..there is no law that says that you HAVE to put ANY cheese on a pizza!) I mean..the dough is just bread (yes, mine has a touch of sugar but not enough to add anything.)I suppose I COULD use a better flour but again, I am not so sure that you would save anything there.

Speaking of dieting, I had a conversation with someone on the web sometime ago and we were discussing calorie counting and lifestyle changes in order to get on a proper "diet", all the time. Well, that person sought me out and mentioned that since that conversation, he has lost a ton of weight and feels great..and he was thanking little ol' me!!! Imagine that!

Well, there's the dough. Or crust, or whatever you want to call it. Anything resembling bread is very bad for someone on a low-carb diet.

I think most all of us have a weight problem to some extent. Thats great that you found the right words to get this guy headed in the right direction.

I have an online girl friend that went through that fasting program with me. We email 3 or 4 times a day....report our weight every morning and talk about our food plan for the day among other things.

As I sit here eating little Easter candy chocolates.....Man when you havent had any sugar in a while it really hypes you up!

Actually not only low carb but any diet....bread etc...is empty calories and suppose to be consumed in small quantities.

I see how "others" don't like the idea of grilled eggplant..but I have made grilled eggplant and I dare say that, like the bacon wrapped asparagas, *I* could change some minds!

I have served my version of grilled eggplant to others that didn't even know what it was and they LOVED it! The secret is the right amount of salt and the right sauce to go with it. (I prefer a garlic mayo).

I love grilled veggies...onions, peppers...not so hot on the zucinni...

Also, I LOVE to have grilled peaches! Man are THOSE good!!!

Hrmm...Grilled peaches on pizza dough...THAT could be GOOD!

Seeing as how the "low-carb" diet has put some people in the hospital...AND seeing as how I doubt the sucess of most "diets" anyway, I simply discount that.

How do you grill veggies? I tried grilling fish on the bbq once. Put it on...went in the house......came back out and it was all on the coals. Do you fire up the barby and have a special pan...or what? If its a skillet...isnt that frying?

Why is that? Isnt it all a matter of training? A bag of chips is so much easier than grilling veggies. Is there anything in the grocery store thats good for you that tastes good too?

I keep string cheese and boiled eggs in my frig all the time...and high protein energy bars under 200 calories.

Ah, the art of the grill.

Did you know that you can "grill" a pizza?

OK, to your question. Some foods LOVE to stick to the grill..like fish. Others naturally do not stick..like steak. (Beef will actually shrink and move itself off of the grill. Neat huh?)

So, it is a case of both using the right tools and the right grill prep. Most people do NOT prep their grill and that is where most of the mistakes happen.

First, you need a CLEAN grill. You don't want bits of old stuff in your food, so heat it up (with the cover on..you want to burn the crud off!) and then use a brush on your grill. (Personally, once a year, I toss my grills into the self-cleaning oven!)

After it is clean, you need to oil up your grill. There are products on the market that will let you do this with a spray can..but that is not only dangerous (remember, the grill is HOT at this point) but you are also putting some chemicals onto your grill that you may not want! Here is the drill. Take a small bowl and put in some oil. You can use normal veggie oil for this, but don't use olive oil as it burns too quickly. Fold a paper towel into a small square..say, 3inches by 3inches or so. Then using a pair of tongs, grab the paper towel, dip it in the oil and then rub generously over your hot grill.

You may also need to oil up your food. In this case, I DO use a light olive oil. (This also allows for the salt to stick.)

In the case of fish, you may also want to use a fish rack. This is a sandwich sorta rack that the fish is held between. It really depends on the type of fish and how flaky it is. If it is a halibut, you had better use the fish rack. If it is shark..well..you can treat that sucker just like a steak!

I have also heard of and used the method of cooking fish where the grill is prepped with a half of a lemon, rubbed all over it. This WILL work with a non-flaky fish and is great if your grill is usually used for fish because it helps get rid of that "old fish" smell. (Those that fish a lot use this method.)

One day, I will grill you up some eggplant and you might just change yer mind about that one too!!!

Well maybe you hit the nail on the head with "ease". Sure is easy to reach for crap rather than cook something.

200?!?! Geez..if you are trying to keep under 2000 a day, 200 is a pretty good bite out of your calorie budget.

Lemme see..the studies so far have said that the low carb diet IS a bad idea. You need balance in your life and simply taking out one element is goofy, and the latest studies have shown that.

Too many people looking for the "easy" answer. Of course, I want to stay in shape by only taking a pill or only exercising 5 minutes a day with the latest pop gadget. But as far as I have seen, the "easy" way is not the best way. Hey, if it was, you'd be taking an elevator or an escalator up to those summits!

I suspect that those in the hospital were more like on a no carb/food diet.

But you didnt answer my question. How do you "grill" veggies? Dont they fall through onto the coals?

I went out and bought two George Formans.......one for Mr B and I and one for company. PAM works great on the surface....and it cleans up easily but I sometimes miss that smokey bbq flavor.

Not if you dont wolf down 1000 at dinner it isnt. Ive found I can loose the most weight in any given period of time if I have a good sized lunch and a very low calorie dinner. I sleep better and the scale is almost always friendly.

Ive been to so many classes on weight control and the bottom line is very simple.......CALORIES in.....CALORIES out! I agree...a balanced diet is the best.....Read the labels.....

I learned that I can "save" 100 calories by ordering a Starbucks using non fat milk. I dont taste any difference. Same goes for making that fat free/sugar free pudding. Non fat milk saves calories without a change in taste.

Every little bit counts........However forget low fat cottage cheese! YUCK! I just bought a couple cartons and just about barfed with the first bite. Also recently tried low sodium tomato juice...and ended up adding the salt. Its a hit and miss thing.

I REALLY like Wishbones Just2good salad dressings. The Ranch is excellent and only 40 cal per 2 tbsp. You cant beat that!

If you have a low cal food youve found thats tasty share it here.

I know a woman who makes her living writing cookbooks and self-help books about low-carb dieting (http://tinyurl.com/rcaul) and makes the rounds appearing on morning talk shows and Oprah. She's an expert on the subject as well as health in general. It would be really interesting to see her response to your messages if she were here. I'm sure she could cite 20 studies for every one of yours proving the opposite. Unfortunately, I never really pay attention when she's talking about it because I don't follow the low-carb diet. In fact, I'm just the opposite. Carbs are a good thing for hikers.

>You need balance in your life and simply taking
>out one element is goofy,

Which is why it's called low-carb, not no-carb. Nobody ever suggested completely eliminating an element.

Ah..pardon me.

I have a veggie grill that goes on top of the BBQ grill for small items like mushrooms. It has smaller holes.

I prefer to simply cut the veggies on the large side and use the normal grill, but yes, I DO use my veggie grill for green onions, mushrooms, asparagas, etc.

As to the smokey BBQ flavor..I buy liquid smoke by the quart.

That's my downfall. I like a good dinner and because I often work on it for a bit, I want to eat it all up!

What helps me, I find, is that if I don't have a large breakfast that I am not hungry during the day..but if I have a large meal in the morning, my tummy is streached and opened for more!

I am a non-fat milk drinker and have a huge glass of the white stuff everyday. I DO agree on the non-fat cottage cheese too! I can handle the low fat version..but the non fat is like cardboard! Same with yogurt.

I don't go for a lot of low cal foods because I don't like to see "substitutes" for stuff. If it calls for butter, I want butter, not some chemical.

As you know, I don't drink soft drinks so I avoid all the nutra-tumor stuff...

Stretched and open for more? Never heard that anology about breakfast. They say 5 or 6 small meals a day works best.

See Im being good and not saying what Im thinking.

I mix it into the pasta after its cooked along with margarine. No tomato sauce or "gravy" as they call it on Sopranos I usually add parsley flakes and pepper and mix well.

Sure cottage cheese as a side with eggs instead of potatos. You've never heard of that? They always offer that as an option at delis.

I didn't see this part of your message when I originally replied. My favorite dressing is a lite Parmesan Ranch that Trader Joe's stocks. I don't remember how many calories it has off-hand since I'm at work and not where I can look at it, but I know it's low. Tastes great, too!

Actually, it is a "natural" product. Not sure if it is considered "good" for you or not. I too was weary of it until I saw a thing on the food network on how it is made. Here is some info that I gathered from the net:

Liquid Smoke is produced by burning fresh cut hickory, mesquite, apple, and pecan wood chips at extremely high temperatures and moisture levels. There’s nothing “synthetic” about it – it’s not made from chemicals. It is made by placing high grade smoking woods in sealed retorts, where intense heat makes the wood smolder (not burn), releasing the gases seen in ordinary smoke.

These gases are quickly chilled in condensers, which liquefies the smoke; it is then forced through refining vats and a large filter. Finally, the liquid is received into large oak barrels which will age the liquid smoke for mellowness.

This is from the Colgin company that is one of the makers of a Liquid Smoke product. http://www.colgin.com/liquidsmokefaqs/#howmade

Yer a sick man!

Actually, whatever floats your boat is fine with me..but I have NEVER had cottage cheese and pasta and although I will often do without fried up potatoes in a deli, I have never had eggs and cottage cheese on the same plate at the same time.

I always opt for tomatoes with my very dry scrambled eggs.

Youd be surprised how many labels tout being "low cal" and really arent. Low cal...to me....doesnt mean 80 or 90 per 2 tbsp...

I think Id pass on this. It still doesnt sound healthy to me. Kinda like liquid ashes or something. All that dont smoke and dont eat charred food and stuff comes to mind.

Yabbut, Trader Joe's is usually pretty good about that. I'm home now, so I can check the label. It's 30 calories per 2 tbsp serving. Izzat better?

I should have checked in here before going to work again. I think it's low-fat buttermilk, but I'll have to wait until I'm home again before I can really say for sure.

And don't ya love how they get you with the "servings per container" on the labels? That way, it LOOKS like your soup is only 180 calories..until you see that in that one can is 2.5 servings!!!

I couldn't tell you if it is "bad" or not..but I can tell you that if you have ever had any "smoked" food, that you have had liquid smoke! (It's that brown layer right near the outer edge that tastes just SO damm good!)

And, when they make it, they are using wood..not burning proteins and such that you would have in charred meat. (Or burning those starches, which HAVE been shown to be cancerous.)

But yea...probably not that "good" for you.

Last night I saw Tony Bourdain in Japan..now THAT guy will eat ANYthing.

As to my chili melting spoons..hey, my chili does NOT melt spoons...

Exactly.........And speaking of portions...We had unexpected company coming for dinner last Sunday so I ran to the grocery store for my favorite.....fresh salmon portions....I was in a hurry,....ordered three "portions" got them home and threw them in the frig til dinner....Fired up the Forman while visiting with our guest....When it was hot I confidently grabbed the salmon and opened it to find.........they had cut the portions in half and sold me 3 tiny little pieces!

Luckily I had some of those small bacon wrapped steaks on hand...thawed them out...cooked them first....and no one knew the difference. Whew!

I love that guy!!! I'm glad to hear you watch the show too. I love his writing/commentary on there. He owns one of the most popular restuarants in NYC, I hear. He really reminds me of several of Janice's New Yawk cousins

There's no way I would have eaten the grilled organs and stuff he ate in Osaka.

I just looked, and I was right. The first ingredient is low-fat buttermilk.

I read somewhere a couple years ago that they don't have any choice in the matter. The serving size is mandated by the gummint. I need to do a search to see if I can find a cite to back that up.

I would! Maybe not the liver..but the rest I would at least try!

As I kid, my parents served up lamb kidneys. They weren't that bad and I didn't know what the heck a "kidney" even was. (Kid food, right?)

I have never tried stomach or brains or such..but as you know, I am an adventurous eater!

Now that sounds like a yummy dressing! Tell me again what it was. I know you found it at Trader Joes...right?

It's Trader Joe's own brand, called "Low Fat Parmesan Ranch Dressing". Good stuff!
