On Monday we made a flax meal pizza crust infused with herbs. I had leftover carrot mash from carrot juice and was unsure how to use it when I had a brilliant idea, to use it in the pizza as an oil replacement. I tried it and had glorious success. The idea was inspired from the baking gods and goddesses and I am thankful!
The dough was light, airy and easy to work with. I kneaded it with love so it would turn out very good for my husband. He had worked hard spreading his homemade compost around our new plants! I wanted to show my appreciation so I tried very hard to make this pizza to his liking!
Once kneaded I rolled the dough into a big plump ball that made my heart smile. It looked just right! I placed it on a pre-greased cookie sheet and pressed it into the shape of a pizza pie with a hearty crust. I baked the pizza for about 30 + minutes as I prepared homemade pizza sauce and toppings. My personal preference is to get the pizza crust brown around the edges and almost completely done to where the center pops back up vs. sinks. Then I add the sauce and toppings and bake for another 15 minutes give or take until done, slice and serve! I used to only bake it for 15 minutes but then had to bake the pizza for sometimes 40 + minutes waiting for the center to be done and not be soggy! This works for me and I hope it works for you!
This crust was dare I say almost perfect. It even formed a big bubble in the center as if it were from a pizza shop! There is no yeast, oil, sugar or refined flours here only really healthy ingredients so you can enjoy more than one slice and still feel great! :)

May you have a beautiful and blessed weekend!
I absolutely love pizza. It ranks very high on my list of comfort foods. We enjoyed a delicious homemade pizza with homemade sauce at our friends house the other night. I ate as much as I could but it was so good I couldn’t help but crave more a few days later. I found myself in the kitchen whipping up some dough.
Double the recipe for a bigger pizza pie!

Have a beautiful and blessed weekend,
I've always loved pizza but don't always like the way I feel after eating it. I decided to create a gluten free crust with out yeast or oil. The secret? The magical zucchini! The zucchini is the secret as it locks in the moisture. This pizza crust is a great starter for many fun creations. It's super quick and easy! Plus it will leave you filling full, satisfied and recharged!
Fun insight: Quinoa dates back thousands of years ago. It "was the gold of the Incas" and is a complete protein rich in all 9 essential amino acids with twice as much fiber as other grains. Not only that but it's high in iron, magnesium, manganese, lysine and B2! Every time I eat quinoa my body feels incredibly satisfied. I can instantly feel the benefits and it always leaves me coming back for more!
Flippin' delicious and you don't feel weighed down! YES!

See the heart? I picked fresh basil leaves from the garden and noticed the beautiful surprise upon cleaning the leaves. It looks like a critter ate it's heart out - literally! :)
Last night I made the most amazing homemade pizza. The house smelled like a pizza parlor, I opened the bedroom door so Jerry could smell the scent wafting in. The crust was to die for, I said "mmmm" so many times he looked at me funny. ;) The recipe made 2 pizzas, I was able to freeze the smaller one as this one looked too good!
Fresh out of the oven:
Ready to be served!
