A healthy Pizza Recipe. Don't ruin your diet!


The hardest part of healthy eating is beating cravings for those foods we love.

For many people, Pizza is a big one.

So here is a way to satisfy that craving, without ruining your diet. Be aware that this isn’t something you should eat frequently, it’s just a more healthy way to satisfy that craving.

Just a side note: I am a firm believer that cheese is not bad for you. Studies consistently show that a SMALL AMOUNT of saturated fat can actually help you in your diet. Of course it shouldn’t be a regular part of your diet, but doesn’t hurt once in a while. For those really concerned about it, use low fat cheese. If the alternative is going out and getting a pizza, this is much better anyway!

This is a very simple recipe. Here’s what you’ll need:

100% Whole Grain bagels
Tomato Sauce
Cheese (low fat or full)
Lean meat (optional)

Step 1: Preheat oven to 425 F

Step 2: On a pan, place as many bagel halves as you wish. Make sure they are made with 100% whole grain.

Step 3: Spread plain tomato sauce onto each bagel.

Step 4: Either grate cheese onto the bagels or cut thin slices and place them on. You can mix it up with different cheeses like cheddar, mozzarella or marble. If you are really concerned about the fat in the cheese, use the low fat kind.

Step 5: Optionally add lean meat such as chicken, lean ham, or extra lean ground beef to it.


Step 6: Bake until the cheese has melted. Remove and let cool for a few minutes.

Step 7: Enjoy!

Listen to sound where is it coming from bottom back? Or inside near back wall . noise could be ice on or around evaporator fan if you can unplug for 12 hours leave doors open this will melt ice . if it is ice that will fix it.

High temp alarm


Maybe not defrosting. Take out several baskets until you can get at the screws that hold the back panel on and remove it. Now you should be able to see the evaporator. And likely a lot of ice/heavy frost. In that case, use a blow dryer or heat gun - I used the latter since I had so much solid ice - and start melting the ice away. Before you melt the ice around the defrost thermostat which clamps to one of the evaporator tubes, disconnect its 2 wires and check for continuity. Should have continuity when it's that cold. Then check continuity for the heater element. Usually it's around 30 ohms. If you're lucky, the fault lies with one of those components.

Water leaks under viking professional and there is about a 1/4 inch build up of ice on floor of freezer(which is on the bottom) on the floor of the pull ot freezer


Your drain is plugged. Basically the freezer goes into defrost and melts frost off the condenser coils. A big piece most likely fell off and freezer came out of defrost before it coulld melt and drain out completely. To fix you have 2 options. Have towels
#1- move contents of fridge and freezer to a backup fridge. Leave unpluged with doors slightly opened for 24 to 48 hrs. Use towels to cleanup any water. Plug back in wait 2 hrs to make sure temp gets back down before putting contents back in fridge.
#2- Remove contents from fridge and put in ice chest. Have towels ready. Remove ice maker ( if there is one) usually two screws on top hard to see and one on bottom. Disconnect the quick connect for the ice maker. Remove screw on back wall. Be careful when removing air vent on back wall. Its plastic and can break. Remove back panel. Look on the silver plate under coils and you will see ice and where the drain is. Remove ice than pour hot hot water down drain until it flows freely into drain pan under fridge by compressor. It may look like there is not ice make sure othyerwise you will be doing this all over again in a few days. Once water flows freely put everything back together wait about 2 hrs for freezer temp to get cold enough and than you can put contents back in freezer. If you have any question or need help please feel free to comment me back.
