Udi’s Gluten Free Pizza, the Perfect Post Workout Snack!


Gluten Free for Less at Walmart @FitFoodieMama

I mentioned a few weeks ago that I attended a Gluten Free for Less even at Walmart. While I was there I had the opportunity to sample some gluten free foods they carry including Udi’s Gluten Free Uncured Pepperoni Pizza! 

I was honestly surprised at how much less this Udi’s pizza was compared to other store that carries it locally.  I am not talking by cents either….more like an entire $3.00! Hello savings!!! So when I was there for the event, I didn’t hesitate to pick up the Udi’s Gluten Free Uncured Pepperoni Pizza for myself and to share with the kiddos- if they were lucky.  

Gluten Free at Walmart for Less

Since I am in the middle of half marathon training, my hunger has increased to a level I have never experienced before.  This is also called being rungry or having the runchies caused by increased mileage and results in wanting to eat.all.the.things like, pizza. 

I have said before that I don’t normally indulge in pizza and that is still true.  Mostly for the fact that gluten free pizza isn’t readily available where I live (the other local grocery store never keeps anything consistently in stock) BUT upon finding it at Walmart, I picked it up to enjoy after my next long run.

Looks delicious, right? This gluten free pie perfection starts with a mix of brown rice flour, rice starch and potato starch which make up the crispy crust then is topped with a sauce of vine ripened tomatoes, premium mozzarella, basil and uncured pepperoni.

The most impressive part of this pie is not just the taste, it is also the fact that a serving size is HALF OF THE PIZZA.  Granted, it is not an overly large pizza but anything that has that large of a serving size is a-okay in my book.  While the entire pie will cost you 350 calories, it’s nice to know that a hefty serving size won’t break the caloric bank.

Anyway, enough about calories and back to eating pizza post-workout.  Just over a week ago, I ran my prescribed 14 mile long run and after nearly 2 hours on the treadmill, I WAS RUNGRY! So I decided this was the perfect time to put the pizza to the test.  

I took it out of the packaging and preheated the oven to 400 degrees, according to package instructions.

Then I popped it in and waited 12 mins- not really that long but long enough when your rungry and want to eat everything in sight.

Twelve minutes later it was done and after waiting for it to cool down for five minutes, it was ready to enjoy!

Mmmmm….gluten free pizza heaven.

Annnnnd then I had to share with my 23 month old…she’s such a little food bandit.

 Oh well, at least I got a small taste…no lie, she ate most of it! Clearly Udi’s gluten free pizza is also toddler approved too! 

Have you ever tried Udi’s gluten free pizza? What is your favorite way to refuel after an intense workout?

Yum, I love a good pizza! I don't necessarily need gluten free, but I know Udi's has great products. I love a big omelet after a good run, I crave it for some reason!

Please tell me you did not run the 14 miles on a treadmill? That seems like some type of horrible torture. I get bored after two miles on a treadmill. :)

I like that term "runchies." I am training for my first 1/2 in June, and after a good run I drink as much water as possible and have a power bar.
