    That actually looks decent, minus the fat free cheese. I'd rather die than eat fat free cheese!

    Sounds great (and looks great as well). My main concern is the amount of sodium in this pizza, does anyone have any idea on how sodium, especially if not monitored, can affect your muscle gains?
    I know that a lot of these fat free products, or reduced fat, are higher in sodium to counter the lack of fat. Any comments guys?

    According to the nutritional info on the website, there is no sodium.

    Notice how next to the word 'Sodium' it just says 'mg', not an actual number. I dont think they could quantify it, or did not want to. Just the pasta sauce and pepperoni i think would add up to almost 100% of your daily sodium intake, those pepperoni slices are preserved well with salt to last in the bags they come in.

    Looks kind of gross to me. I'm also not into preserved meats unless they are nitrate free, which I suppose one could find to make this pizza. Nitrates bad.

    Not just salt, but chemicals. Japan's rate of stomach cancer is like 40x that of the US. Pickled foods are probably why.

    I would rather use regular cheese or Daiya cheese (which is vegan) than a fat free cheese.

    And I would skip that meat....heck I would get rid of a lot of those processed ingredients.

    Just eat regular pizza. If it's good for The Rock, then it's good for you too. icon_biggrin.gif

    Sorry guys.

    This recipe does have a lot of sodium.

    It is more of a cheat day meal.

    I am sure if you decided to make your own ingredients, you can reduce the sodium.

    Perhaps some seasoned turkey crumbles.

    I will adjust my recipes in the future to address the sodium issue.
