Well, maybe I should let you be the judge of that after trying this little belter of a recipe…

So what do I have for you today?

Well it’s a very simple dish, a very tasty dish and a dish designed to watch the pennies.

So how do you make it….?

Well it is so super simple, even I can make a FRESH pizza.

Take your spicy Chicken, chop into fine strips and cook it off in a pan. Slice the mushrooms and add to chicken allowing them to cook through.

Slice the green pepper, chop the chilli, slice the baby vine tomatoes and cut the mozzarella cheese into thin slices.

Lightly grease a baking tray or apply some grease proof paper to a standard metal tray. Take the tortilla and spread the tomato salsa evenly covering all of the base, bar the edges.

Add the other ingredients to the base creating your own individual pizza

Put at the top¬†of a pre heated oven for 8-10 minutes at 195 degree’s centigrade (I am told this is about Gas Mark 6 ish?)

Check regularly and once cooked to your own specification (soft, crispy or charred ūüėČ )

After a rest day on Sunday and the fact I didn’t manage to go to the gym on Saturday, I was raring to go yesterday so after breakfast I collected the dog and went for good a walk followed by a trip to the gym.

The gym session was cut short and unfortunately looked like this:

  1. 3 x 15 Reps 30kg Abductor machine
  2. 3 x 15 Reps 30kg Adductor machine
  3. 3 x 20 Reps 30kg Abdominal Crunch machine
  4. 3 x 20 Reps 30kg Lower Back machine

I only did 10 minutes on the exercise bike and the stepping machine was forgotten completely.

The reason for this?

Well it appears that I went at the wrong time. On a Monday lunchtime (the time I got there) there is a circuits class in the main gym and unfortunately when there is a lot of activity around me, I still get very twitchy and anxious and I was only able to take it for about 25 minutes before I had to leave.

It is strange how since my surgery I am so much more confident in myself in certain things but still on occasion when there are too many people around me, I cannot handle it and have to get out. Hopefully this is just a simple minor setback to my ailment of anxiety attacks and not a return to form that I have experienced so much over the past 15 years or so.

Anyway, it was unfortunate and I have learnt that I cannot go at that time of the day on a Monday as I don’t want to be around all of those people. In future, I will make sure that I stick to my usual routine of going to the gym in the morning so there are no repeat performances.

As for the walking, the entire days activity gave me a Jawbone reading of this:

    I have a whole album of pictures of pizzas I have made … I can never resist photographing them. But I had not thought of using the tortilla as a base – this smacks of culinary genius and I shall give it a whirl (and photograph the results – natch!)
