I love pizza. I think that’s a fairly normal! Sadly, pizza doesn’t really fit my macros the best so I usually save it for a cheat meals I wanted to come up with a pizza recipe that was a bit more macro friendly that I could eat without having to work in a cheat meal. I’m starting to work more on my mains lifts again and focus on gaining strength, so I have a few more carbs to work with on training days. I’m not doing a bulk by any means, but staying closer to maintenance than a cut. I actually recalculate the my macros using a new formula, so I’m going to try this out for a bit and see how it goes.
For this recipe I picked up some more of those Flat Out wraps that I used in my Peanut Butter Protein Roll Up recipe, though this time I got the Light Original version since “net” carbs are not something I work into my macros. I’m really more conscious of how many carbs and calories I’m working with for the day overall. These wraps are 90 calories and have 14 grams of carbs total, which is way better than the ProteinUp version, in my opinion. These also contain 9 grams of protein which I think pretty darn good for not be advertised as high protein – the ProteinUp has 12 grams for reference.
This recipe is pretty simple and also versatile. You could probably pull all your leftover veggies from the fridge and throw them onto this for a successful and tasty flat bread. This is also a good recipe for everyone in the house to make their own flat bread to their liking. This is perfect for Jake and I, since I’m not a meat-eater (aside from fish) and Jake is also on a continuous bulk – lucky him!
what you’ll need
- 1 FlatOut Light Original Wrap
- 50g pizza sauce (1 serving)
- mozzarella cheese
- 50g Morningstar Griller Crumbles (1 serving), or another protein of your choice
- black olives
- green olives
- crushed red pepper flakes
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Measure out all your ingredients to the serving sizes for your macros – I use a food scale for accuracy. Cook your protein of choice, if required. I heated up the Morningstar crumbles in a skillet, but I didn’t cook the crumbles all the way, just enough to thaw them out. Place the Flatout wrap onto a cookie sheet and spread the pizza sauce down as the base. Sprinkle on the crumbles, the olives and onion. Finally add on the cheese! Don’t go crazy here if it doesn’t fit your macros, but cheese does have protein – and it’s delicious!
Calories and macros on my personal flat bread: 402 calories, 33g protein, 29g carbs, 20g fat. For pizza, I’d say this is pretty good! I plan on eating this all weekend with a side salad if I need a little roughage with my meal. This is recipe that could also be made on the grill for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend or during summer. You just have to make sure your protein is cooked in advance of putting together the flat bread on the grill.
Jake’s flat bread was a little different, and I don’t have the macros on it, but I still wanted to share his creation! For his protein, he used hard salami we picked up at the deli earlier in the week, pineapples, and onions. And a lot of olives.
