Healthy Pizza Rice

What’s up everyone!? Today we’re gonna dive right into it with one of the quickest meals I know how to make…PIZZA RICE! I used the microwave in this recipe but if you have more time you can always use the oven instead.

First, start off by browning however much meat you want, personally I use 6 ounces per serving but I’ll brown a pound at a time so I can make this even quicker the next time. I’m using a lean ground turkey this time but beef, chicken, and pork are great options too. If you’re not using at least a 90/10 lean meat you may wanna drain it a bit after it’s browned unless you like drinking your meals. Next, you’re gonna microwave a pack of :90 second brown rice. Alternatively you can just cook a bunch of brown rice one night and heat it up at this stage of the recipe. Once that’s cooked take out a single serving dish, add in your beef, 1 cup of rice, and 1/2 cup of a low sodium pizza or pasta sauce. Go ahead and mix those together. Last, top your dish with some mozzarella, pepperoni, and whatever else you want, it all comes down to what you like on your pizza. Your beef and rice should be hot enough to melt your cheese but if they aren’t give it a quick 20 or 30 second zap until your cheese is melted. This meal prep idea is more about having a quick option than anything else. Eating healthy doesn’t have to drain your bank account or take hours in the kitchen, it’s all about thinking outside the box!

Tip:

  • Make a couple at a time so you can take them with you on the go!
