Prepare Red Sauce 

In a large very deep boiling pot, add in meats and fry until fully cooked. Add in one can crushed tomatoes whole and one can blended. Allow mixture to boil until sauce is fully reduced down. Add in olive oil, basil and salt and pepper to taste. 

Prepare Ricotta/ Cottage Cheese Blend  

Add Cottage cheese to a blender and blend on high until fully dissolved. Add Ricotta and mix thoroughly. Chop and add in fresh basil. Add Salt and Pepper to taste. 

Prepare Lasagna.  

Place a layer of your red sauce on the bottom of a sheet pan. Place a layer of  Oven-Ready Lasagna noodles. Over the top of the sauce. Cover the noodles in the ricotta mixture followed by a layer of mozzarella cheese. Add in more sauce and continue layering until all of the pan is full. Be sure to measure carefully so you don’t run out of topping.


When you go to the store buy the ricotta and cottage cheese in the 16 ounce containers. Make sure to buy the fat free Mozzarella as well to get all the extra protein. Measure the mozzarella with a measuring cup. Place the oven on broil for an additional 2-3 minutes at the end for a more golden cheese.  Serving size based on 12 slices in the pan.

BBQ Chicken Prep 

Place chicken into a Crock Pot with BBQ sauce and allow a few hours for the chicken to become pull apart. Pull Chicken. I prefer to make my BBQ sauce from scratch to control for sugar and other ingredients. 

Bake at 550F 

Preheat your oven to 550F with a pizza stone in the over while it comes to temperature. Once the oven is hot remove the pizza stone carefully with oven mitts and place on the stovetop. Carefully add your pizza dough to the hot stone and build your pizza. Add on red onion, chicken, and cheese.  Place in the oven and bake for between 7-10 minutes, checking frequently.  


Use G. Hughes Sugar Free BBQ Sauce when cooking chicken, or- BBQ Sauce is  very, very easy to make. In the Crock Pot add in Catsup, Vinegar, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Brown Sugar, Molasses, Salt and Pepper. Let the chicken cook in this mixture and you will wind up with a killer sauce. I also add in a can of Crushed Tomatoes when I am in the mood.  You can buy Protein Cheese or Fat Free Cheese from Walmart.  This will make two pizza pies. Serving size per slice of pizza when cut into 8 pieces.
