Weekly Meal Plan and the Salad Pizza Recipe
With it being Spring Break I thought that I would have some time to relax and post everyday! Ha! That definitely did not happen and I am glad. When my sweet cousin realized that I had Spring Break she helped me and Baby Blue Eyes fill our days with Zumba and other workouts, tennis, shopping, dinners, slumber parties and sunset sips (shout out to the creator Michaelanne). I have been thoroughly enjoying my break and all the activities I have taken part in. Needless to say I am not getting my weekly meal plan out until today… Oh well!
Weekly Meal Plan
Monday: Mr. Blue Eyes was in charge and made his famous sausage/pasta creation (my favorite).
Tuesday: Crock Pot Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos (oh my yummy)
***Mr. Blue Eyes ended up making tacos with the chicken but my cousin and I decided to use Tostitos Hint of Lime chips and make nachos. Either way these tacos were a winner and super easy!***
Wednesday: Homemade Pizza, including Salad Pizza
Thursday: On Wisconsin, Badger Game…something fun or Caprese Mac and Cheese (Red&White 🙂 )
Friday: Lemon Chicken
***This is a repeater recipe because we loved it so much!***
Saturday: Burrito Bowls
***Burrito Bowls were on the menu a few weeks ago but we never got the chance to make it.***
Last night Mr. Blue Eyes and I had some fun in the kitchen together making homemade pizzas. This is one of our favorite meals to make because we can be together! We ended up making 3 pizzas because the grocery store had a deal on the pizza crusts and pizza is one of the only meals that we will eat leftover so it was perfect. Mr. Blue Eyes got his own pizza to put on all the ingredients that I don’t like to eat (mushrooms and onions).
Then we made just a plain pepperoni with mozzarella and parmesan.
Finally as a little appetizer I made a Salad Pizza.
Let me tell you this Salad Pizza is Oh-My-Out-Of-This-World! Mr. Blue Eyes was hesitant but I won him over after his first bite. I think he ate half the pizza. This pizza is the perfect appetizer especially in the spring and summer because it is so light and so delicious.

Salad Pizza Ingredients
~4 Cups Baby salad greens
*I used Organic Girl*
~1 Whole wheat or pre-baked pizza crust
*We just used the Pillsbury crust found in the refrigerator section*
~2 Plum tomatoes
~3 Tbsp. Light Balsamic Vinaigrette
~1/4 Tsp. Salt and Pepper
~3/4 Cup Mozzarella cheese
~3 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese, grated
*I used shaved because that is what I had*
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Cut your tomatoes and let them sit on paper towel for a few minutes.
Step 2: Place your pizza crust on a large baking sheet. Put your tomatoes on top and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 450 degrees for 8 minutes.
Step 3: Then top the crust and tomatoes with mozzarella and Parmesan cheese and bake an additional 5 minutes.
Step 4: While the crust is baking toss the greens and dressing in a large bowl. Remove pizza from oven; top with salad. Cut your slices and enjoy!
Off to enjoy a spring break snooze and then cheering on our Wisconsin Badgers tonight in the Sweet 16! On Wisconsin!
