Muscle Building Meals #3 – Pizza

Pizza; the cardinal sin for serious trainers right?

Not so fast the word ‘pizza’ has plenty of negative connotations for those of us who strive for a great physique, but this needn’t be the case.

Yes, a hulking great Dominos covered with cheese, fatty meat and dough postivly dripping with grease won’t get you any nearer to revealing your serratus anterior, but that’s not to say this classic recipe can’t contribute to your muscle-building and even fat loss efforts.

So here’s my recipe for the perfect pizza to fuel, not halt your relentless fitness campaign.

You’re going to need;

  • A wholemeal pizza base
  • Tomato puree
  • Your choice of cheese
  • Chicken (pre-cooked)
  • Red Onion
  • Olives
  • Rocket or Spinach

This is so easy even I can make it, lob everything on the pizza, it doesn’t really matter what order you do it in, but if you want something that resembles a pizza and not roadkill then I’d spread the tomato puree on first, then sprinkle the cheese.

Throw it in the oven for about 10 minutes on 200 degrees.



As a side note, I’d say that due to the base and the cheese, this probably isn’t deal if you’re¬†aggressively¬†cutting but otherwise this makes a great guilt-free cheat meal and comes in at a fraction of the price of a typical takeaway pizza.
