Simply Filling Pizza!

by DanicasDaily on July 7, 2012

Happy Saturday all!  We have had a fun filled summer day that included two Simply Filling Meals that I have been waiting to try all week long ~ “fried” hash browns and Pizza. 

Breakfast started off with 3/4 cup Ore Ida Western Potatoes “fried” in my 2 tsp of healthy oil. (100% Simply Filling but only 3 points+ if you are counting).

Then, I powered up with an egg plus egg white scramble.

I actually was full at this point so I saved this fruit for my afternoon snack.  The Husband and I split a Pearine, Nectarine and Plum.

All together with Green Mountain Wild Blueberry Coffee.

On our way out to the Farmer’s Market, we stopped by Starbuck’s.  Even though it was already 90 degrees, I still wanted a hot drink ~ Grande Nonfat Decaf latte.

We stocked up on corn, strawberries, nectarines and pluots at the market.  I couldn’t decide on any produce that sounded or looked really good. 

We stopped for lunch at Mary’s Pizza Shack just so we could have big salads.

Since I had 7 WPA still remaining for this week, I decided to start off with a piece of freshly baked sour dough bread (2 WPA)

I got my usual Large Mary’s Salad…..sometimes I wonder how they fit all the veggies on that plate.

Served up with ranch on the side for dipping. (4 WPA for the cheese & dressing)

After lunch we walked around looking for a birthday gift for my nephew before we headed out to see Savages.  It wasn’t bad but we both felt it was more of a DVD.  I actually tried convincing The Husband to see Magic Mike with me but…..he thought he would be the only guy in the theatre Open-mouthed smile 

For dinner we took the easy route and built our own Simply Filling Veggie Pizzas.

This Flat Out Amazing Recipe is probably the simplest pizza you will ever make and it really does taste like a delicious, crunchy, thin crust pizza.  The secret it totally in the toppings:

  • Multi-Grain Flax Flat Out Wrap (in my opinion, the only flavor that doesn’t taste “diety”)
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Mushrooms
  • Bell Pepper
  • Olives (1 Tbsp = 1 points+)
  • Sweet Pickled Cherry peppers chopped
  • 1 oz part skim mozzarella
  • 1 tsp parmesan
  • Then, once it comes out of the oven, brighten the flavors with fresh tomatoes and basil

Cut into 4 slices and enjoy every Simply Filling Pizza Slice! (6 points+ if you are counting)

STATS: Yesterday’s is now up to date ~ here is today’s:

  • 2,697 calories burned
  • 7,138 steps taken
  • 7 WPA used, 0 WPA remaining (22 daily points+)

I feel like I have had a very successful first week on Simply Filling and I am actually excited to way in tomorrow and for the new week.  I will be back tomorrow with my weigh in and my 2nd week Simply Filling Menu.

Night all!

I am going to have to try that pizza! I don’t do Simply Fillling on WW, but count the points, although after seeing all your great food and ideas, I just might have to try it out.

2 Josie July 7, 2012 at 8:54 pm

Yum on all your food…I now need to try that wild blueberry coffee! I did simply filling today also..Jay would have been the only or maybe 2nd guy in Magic Mike we made fun of the guys that were there with their wives/gf’s so not a dude movie!! Ed said No Way would he be caught dead in there!! LOL

3 Denise July 7, 2012 at 9:30 pm

Ha! I tried talking my hubby into seeing magic mike today. Didn’t work. We are going tomorrow to see savages.

I make pizzas on te flat outs all of the time! I love them and love that the puzza isn’t too doughy. I normally put some type of meat on mine, but will have to give this Simply Filling one a try. Thanks for all of te great meal ideas you always give.

I think you’ve inspired me to try Simply Filling when I get home from the beach next week! I plan to continue to track points+ while there but I’m going to do a lot of reading about the plan while I’m there. Before Weight Watchers I ate very “clean” (not watching portions) and now while I am successful I don’t really like the light breads and fat free everything that I’ve started to use. I think Simply Filling will really help me return a more clean lifestyle.Thanks:-)

One question – the pizza is 6 points+ per slice when on the plan and when on Simply Filling you can eat more than one slice but keep in mind to eat only until satiated? Or you may eat one slice and every slice after that counts from the weekly points?

Hi Alison,

You will love Simply Filling because it is so much like clean eating. If you ever did CORE it is very similar. Like you portions sometimes are my challenge. I can eat a whole lot of good clean foods. This is where Simply Filling helps because part of it is listening to your body and only eating until satisfied. I tend to usd my wpa for real foods that are not simply filling. It is worth it to me to have real maple syrup vs sugar free and real bread most times over lite bread.

As for the flat out pizzas we had last night – they are 6 points+ for the entire pizza if you are counting. They are 100% Simply Filling so you would only count the non simply filling fooda towards your wpa. Olives are not Simpky Filling so I counted 1 wpa for the tablespoon.

Good luck – you are going to do great!

Can I dare attempt to do Simple Filling for the month of August??? You have inspired me Danica…I guess my wine with dinner can come out of my extras :)

That pizza looks awesome.

I went with some girlfriends to see Magic Mike last week, and there was quite a few men in there…some with their wives, one guy with his mom (or really old girlfriend..lol), and even a few guys seeing it together.

What a gorgeous pizza! Will try that flavor of flat out. Didn’t know why people liked them so much – thought they were gross…

10 Tamara July 9, 2012 at 8:17 am

That pizza looks fabulous! I usually use pitas but will be trying flatouts soon. I bought the light original for Emily Bites’ Bacon Cheeseburger Wraps recipe (so good) and they weren’t too awful, but I do generally prefer the multigrain flax as well.

I went to see Magic Mike last Monday with some co-workers… all female! it was fun. :)

You’re doing so great, and you’ve inspired me to try Simply Filling! I need to shake things up because I’ve slacked off on tracking and cannot get excited about starting tracking again. Simply Filling sounds like the perfect way to shake up my eating habits and my mindset. Thanks so much for all of your posts and your great tips.

I am obsessed with Flat Out Pizza’s! I have tried a variety of kinds and have at least 1 a week! My favorite is a Taco Pizza! Taco sauce with ground turkey, Mexican Cheese mix, lettuce, tomato and black olives! I have also made a Buffalo Chicken Pizza with leftover buffalo chicken that was delicious and filling! I think all the Flat Out Pizza’s I have tried have come out to around 10 pts. plus but I could slim that down by not adding as much cheese.

13 DanicasDaily July 14, 2012 at 1:23 pm

Wow Shelby! Thanks for sharing all the ideas…..I now have a lot of new pizzas to try out on my Flat Outs!

According to my e-tools, the part skim mozzarella is not a power food, therefore should be counted as points. I’d still like to try this pizza if I can find the fat free cheese.

15 DanicasDaily March 31, 2013 at 10:10 am

Hi Joy,

If you were to use a fat free mozzarella that is allowed for Weight Watchers Simply Filling. I have made a few tweaks to how I work the Simply Filling Technique that includes using low fat versus fat free cheese as I feel it is a healthier option.

You can read about my tweaks/rational here. http://danicasdaily.com/weight-watchers-simply-filling-technique

Thanks,

Danica

What about pizza sauce? Is it simply filling or should I be counting points for it?

17 DanicasDaily January 19, 2014 at 4:13 pm

Hi Patty,

I count the pizza sauce as Simply Filling because it is made of simply filling ingredients.

Thanks,

Danica

This pizza looks delish! I was going to make it but could not find the “flat outs” anywhere. Can you please let me know where you get them and what section/dept of the grocery store? Thanks!

19 Heidi April 27, 2014 at 12:11 pm

I just started WW again after a number of years hiatus. I think the pizza on a Flat Out looks amazing and I am definitely going to try to making one soon!!!
