Tonight was pizza night at my house. This afternoon I made this pizza dough. I let it rise most of the afternoon and it was ready to be shaped into individual pizza's for dinner. My guys and I like thin crust pizza so I rolled and hand stretched the dough as thin as I could get it.
D had plain cheese - he actually ate half of this which is a decent amount for him.
I sautéed onion and red pepper in chicken stock to use as a topping for mine and Charlie's pizzas. His also had sausage and mozzarella cheese.
Instead of tomato sauce I used TJ's Red Pepper spread then topped my pizza with lots of veggies. I used whatever veggie I could get my hands on - green beans, broccoli and the cooked onion & red pepper. I decided to go with a non-cheese pizza tonight.
My homemade crust was amazing - paper thin and ultra crispy. I used a pizza stone which really helps achieve that great crunch. This was so healthy and one of the best tasting pizzas I have made. I really think my favorite pizzas are the ones I make at home. The crust totally makes this pizza superb.
For dessert I thawed 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, then topped them with plain greek yogurt (less than 1/2 cup) and almonds. Now that is a beauty!!! I love how the berry juice swirls through the yogurt.
I did have a Z Bar and almonds this afternoon. I am trying to add nuts back into my diet. I eliminated them and dried fruit for a while to let my system heal. I think the dried fruit is a definite no-no but I am hoping the nuts will be tolerable. I'll just have to wait and see how I respond.
I am watching Martha Stewart's vacation to the Yucatan Peninsula - what a gorgeous place. I hope someday I get the chance to travel and experience the art that other countries have to offer.
I am planning an early AM run tomorrow then we are off to Karate. My huz took Monday off so we have him home with us for 4 whole days, woo hoo!!! D is thrilled.
I hope you all had a great day and are enjoying this fine Friday evening. I am off to slice an apple -believe it or not I need a snack - that's my speedy metabolism for you.
