Pizza Ninja

Hi guys 🙂

Come here….


Can we just talk about this for a second??

pizza (2)

Last night was PIZZA NIGHT up in herrre 🙂

I’ve had pizza on the brain ever since my cousin and I had Pizza Fusion (which closed down?!) and last night was the night.

Dance Trance didn’t happen because there was a crazy accident on I-4, so instead, I went to a spin class. I haven’t taken a spin class in forever (and haven’t taught spin since last spring) so it was fun to remember how much I LOVE it. Class was awesome 🙂

When I got home, I turned into a pizza-making ninja.

-The dough was fresh and pre-made from Publix. Since I knew I wouldn’t have time to make it from scratch after work and working out, I decided to give it a whirl- Italian for the BBQ pizza and multigrain for the veggie pizza.

One pizza was flavored the Pilot’s favorite way:

BBQ sauce, colby jack and rotisserie chicken – this one is awesome with cilantro on top, too

pizza (3) 

The veggie one was flavored my favorite way:

pizza (4)

Organic marinara, Daiya cheese, sautéed veggies (with EVOO, sea salt, pepper, rosemary, garlic and thyme) and fresh basil


My cousins, auntie and I enjoyed our pizza feast with salads sprinkled with Garlic Gold (I squirted mustard on mine.. it’s a new way I’m loving salad)

pizza (5)


I went to bed pretty early last night, with wet hair. It looks like jungle beast mane this morning 😉 When I was little my mom used to tell me that I’d get sick if I went to bed with wet hair. Well I found out that my aunt (not the one I’m living with, another aunt) used to tell my cousins that they’d DIE if they went to bed with wet hair. Hahah!

This morning, I’m off to hot yoga and am really excited to interview the instructor for a work newsletter. During class, she’s going to call on participants to yell out what they’re thinking (“Pain!” “Get me outta here!” “F*@&*(&!” etc) and I’m going to use it for the article 🙂

Pre-yoga snackage:


See ya later today with a foam rolling post! My cousin is going to be home early and said she’d be my videographer 😉

    These are good tips – I’m hosting a pizza making party soon and need some cool flavor combinations. That hot yoga concept sound hilarious! It’s a good thing I won’t be in that class. It would turn seriously offensive fast with the amount of stuff I’d love to shout while I’m burning up and dying while twisting into a pretzel:)

  2. Jessica @ How Sweet on October 13, 2010 at 8:42 am

    My mom used to tell me the same thing! To this day I am still afraid to go to bed with my hair wet. There has to be a VERY great reason (like I’m exhausted) for me to do it.

  3. Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine on October 13, 2010 at 8:43 am

    I love using mustard as salad dressing!! I remember the first time I posted about it and so many people thought that was the weirdest thing ever…glad I’m in good company 🙂

    Yup, my mom perpetuated the wet hair sickness for ever. Now I love it- means I don’t have to shower in the morning and can sleep a little more!!

  4. Laury @ thefitnessdish on October 13, 2010 at 8:45 am

    I’m making pizza tonight! Spinach and Goat Cheese with Caramelized onion is my specialty (on multi-grain dough). Can’t wait!!!

    The foam roller has been my lover since that thing was invented, I’ve found every which way to stretch, balance and strengthen on that thing….a must have for all my clients! Look forward to your video.

    • Fitnessista on October 13, 2010 at 8:46 am

      oh YUM!!!

  5. Tina @ Faith Fitness Fun on October 13, 2010 at 8:48 am

    I think spin to me is like Zumba to you. I can’t go without it!! I’m still doing it regularly at 6.5 months pregnant too. Which some people think is crazy, but I think it feels great. 🙂

    • Fitnessista on October 13, 2010 at 8:51 am

      my aunt did that until she had her baby two weeks ago and she was in labor for 8 minutes!!! so hopefully that will help, right/?? 🙂

  6. Krystina on October 13, 2010 at 8:56 am

    Pizza Fusion closed down? Damn 🙁 I’ve been wanting to try bbq sauce on pizza. I bet it’s tasty.

  7. Holly @ couchpotatoathlete on October 13, 2010 at 8:57 am

    Sometimes when I go to bed with wet hair it looks really good in the morning: lots of volume and pretty smooth. But most of the time I look like Sideshow Bob from the Simpsons 🙂

  8. Lisa on October 13, 2010 at 8:58 am

    That pizza looks phenomonal! I love homemade pizza. It def does NOT leave you feeling like crap after and bloated! Thats why its the best! =)

  9. Jenn @ LiveWellFitNow on October 13, 2010 at 9:04 am

    Pizza was on my mind last night. I have a list of about 10 recipes that I want to make but I might just have to up pizza to the top!!!

    I took spinning this am. AM IN LOVE! Getting certified to teach it in 2 weeks! Eek!!!!

  10. rachael on October 13, 2010 at 9:04 am

    Just looking at daiya pizza makes me happy:)

    That yoga class/article sounds really fun!

  11. Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman on October 13, 2010 at 9:55 am

    My mom always said that, too. I don’t get it. But your aunt’s version is hilarious!!

    Oh, and I love foam rolling (unless I’m doing it, in which case I hate it). The pain is so worth it!

  12. Amanda (Eating Up) on October 13, 2010 at 9:55 am

    I just read something that said going to bed with wet hair won’t make you sick (and certainly won’t kill you). I was told not to do it all the time growing up!

    • Fitnessista on October 13, 2010 at 11:56 am

      haha! why do moms tell us these things??

  13. Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat on October 13, 2010 at 9:58 am

    Sometimes I got to bed with wet hair but I always wake up with it all over the place in the morning. Guys have things so much easier! I’m normally a thin crust pizza sort of gal but I think I’d need a thicker crust if it was made of that Publix dough!

    Have a great day!

  14. Kirby on October 13, 2010 at 10:09 am

    Oh YUM! Definitely going to make that BBQ pizza! Love that it’s rotisserie chicken…so easy! My favorite pizza to make is with raw basil/arugula pesto on whole wheat dough with calamata olives, artichokes, roasted red peppers and feta or mozz. Always a crowd pleaser!

    • Fitnessista on October 13, 2010 at 11:55 am

      that sounds RIDICULOUSLY AMAZING

  15. andrea on October 13, 2010 at 10:25 am

    I am drooling over the pizzas this morning. It’s been years since I have had one. Stupid food intolerances.

    Thanks for always making my morning reading pleasurable. I really do enjoy reading your blog.

    • Fitnessista on October 13, 2010 at 11:55 am

      thank you!!!
      what are you intolerant to? there’s gotta be a way to make you a good pizza!

  16. Heather @ Get Healthy with Heather on October 13, 2010 at 10:28 am

    I am all about that pizza combos, we love bbq chicken in our house!

  17. Shanna @ Shanna LIke Banana on October 13, 2010 at 10:50 am

    Lucky Michelle!

    How long does the discount work for Cravory? So excited!

    • Fitnessista on October 13, 2010 at 11:55 am

      i’m not sure! maybe i should ask them.. haha

  18. Clare @ Fitting It All In on October 13, 2010 at 10:54 am

    Is this a Bikram class where you get to yell out those things? My classes are usually silent…in fact it kinda weirds me out when the instructors are too chatty! I’ve heard all studios are different though. I’d love to try one in a different city!

    • Fitnessista on October 13, 2010 at 11:54 am

      no, it was a power yoga class

  19. jenna on October 13, 2010 at 10:59 am

    that dough looks amazing!!!

    and youv’e got to be kinding on the 8min. labor???!!

  20. Anj on October 13, 2010 at 11:03 am

    Oh no! Pizza Fusion closed?! I was hoping to try it when I’m in Orlando next month 🙁 Ah well now I’ll have to find another pizza place to try. Your pizza looks amaaaaazzzinggggg!

  21. Sheena on October 13, 2010 at 11:20 am

    I didn’t know Publix sells ready-made multigrain pizza dough! At which Publix did you find it?

    • Fitnessista on October 13, 2010 at 11:54 am

      sand lake

  22. Mi-An Dela Cruz on October 13, 2010 at 11:42 am

    Can’t wait to see your vid on foam roller…i have one and only do like 3 things on it. hahaha.

  23. Melissa (MelissaLikesToEat) on October 13, 2010 at 12:14 pm

    I love making pizza at home…the options are limitless. All those pizzas look delish!

  24. Veronica on October 13, 2010 at 12:21 pm

    In what section of Pubs did you find the dough??

    • Fitnessista on October 13, 2010 at 12:31 pm

      in the bakery section by the bread, in a little fridge

  25. Emily on October 13, 2010 at 12:23 pm

    Your pizza looks awesome! Yum.

    I would definitely be the one swearing in yoga class. Glad to know that I’m not the only one. 🙂

  26. Lauren on October 13, 2010 at 12:31 pm

    I have had pizza on the brain too and now seeing this just makes me want it even more!

  27. Mary (What's Cookin' with Mary) on October 13, 2010 at 12:32 pm

    Your pizza’s look so professional! I need to pick up a blob of dough next time I am at the store 😉

  28. Stefanie on October 13, 2010 at 12:34 pm

    Yayy for the foam-rolling video later! I just made pizza last week, but after this post I want it again! Like now! 😉

    • Fitnessista on October 13, 2010 at 12:38 pm

      pizza is always good 🙂

  29. Mary @ Bites and Bliss on October 13, 2010 at 12:46 pm

    Ohh mee those pizzas look mighty delicious 🙂

  30. Allison @ Food for Healing on October 13, 2010 at 1:07 pm

    DIE if you go to bed with wet hair?? haha yikes. I go to bed with wet hair almost everynight and i am still alive and well lol

  31. Liz @ Tip Top Shape on October 13, 2010 at 1:18 pm

    Ha, my mom told
    me I’d get sick if I went to bed with wet hair, too.

  32. Megan (Braise The Roof) on October 13, 2010 at 2:05 pm

    Haha, that’s too funny about your hair. My mom said told me that if I went outside with wet hair I’d get sick, but she’d French braid my hair wet before I’d go to bed so that I’d wake up with wavy hair the next day…ahh, I miss those days. 🙂

  33. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on October 13, 2010 at 2:05 pm

    excited about the foam rolling post b/c I think im the only person who’s never rolled before!

    that’s sad about the accident on the highway,I hope the people are ok! And great job of just wingin’ it with the spin class!

    Being interviewed and possibly getting to shout out 4 letter words and keep it REAL…that’s my kind of interview 🙂 LOL

    And wet hair and going to bed with it…girl, I got a brazilian blowout 2 weeks ago. For my hair, not to be confused with waxing that some people thought I was talking about. And it’s not for everyone, yes, it was in the news, and to each her own but..seriously, my hair is 100% smooth. no frizz, no need to flat iron it, no work. Wash and go. I love it. It took 2 hrs and was about the price you’d pay for highlights x2. WELL Worth it to me. Anyway sorry to ramble but if you want the deets, LMK!


  34. Kate on October 13, 2010 at 2:17 pm

    Yumm! The veggie pizza looks awesome. I’ve heard a lot about the daiya cheese, I need to go in search of it!!

  35. fittingbackin on October 13, 2010 at 2:27 pm

    I could eat pizza every. single. day. Love the look of the BBQ one!

  36. Kristin on October 13, 2010 at 3:22 pm

    Looking forward to the foam roller post! I just got one and only know a few moves!

  37. VeggieGirl on October 13, 2010 at 3:24 pm

    I wanna come for pizza night! 😀

  38. Allie on October 13, 2010 at 4:08 pm

    Hi, I love your blog! =) I’m interested in trying Hot Yoga, but I’m a little nervous about going without much yoga experience (I’ve done P90x yoga..that’s about it). Is there a better way to ease into it or do you have to have more experience? Those pizzas look amazing!


  39. Kristen on October 13, 2010 at 9:35 pm

    The veggie one loos really really yummy.

  40. Erika @ Food, Fitness, & Fun on October 14, 2010 at 5:34 pm

    Mmmmmm…both of those pizzas look amazing!!!!! I am hungry now… 😉

  41. Julie (A Case of the Runs) on October 16, 2010 at 1:22 am

    OMG, my mom tells me the same thing about going to bed w/wet hair! I wonder why…
