I began cooking my pizza knowing that it would be a bit higher than my delicious scratch made pizza but would still me a fairly good choice that wouldn't put me over my target calorie goal for the day. As it was cooking I impatiently peered at it through the glass door of my Advantium oven. Somehow it did not seem to be topped with quite as many veggies as the little topping rich sample I had in the store. But, I was still hopeful that it would be just as tasty.
I carefully removed it from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes on the little cardboard disk that had previously held the frozen pizza. I cut the pizza into wedges and poured a bubbling glass of diet tonic water and cranberry juice. I ate the pizza and logged into my account at MyFitnessPal.com to enter it into my diary. Then the reality of what I had just done began to sink in.
To add salt to my wound my homemade pizza is a slightly larger serving but has only 1/4th the calories and infinitely more flavor.

I hate to waste food but I doubt that I will be eating the last remaining frozen pizza anytime soon. If I am going to splurge and consume almost 1000 calories at a sitting rest assured that I will be eating something a lot more enjoyable than a frozen heat and eat pizza.
