Pizza Pie

Saturday was national vegan pizza day!  We celebrated a day early because we had other plans on Saturday.  I do believe that this may be the most perfect pizza dough you’ve ever had.  And of course, you’re welcome! 😉

Perfect pizza crust (makes two pizzas)

2 cups Unbleached All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 cups Whole Wheat Pastry Flour (you can use regular whole wheat flour but it won’t be as fluffy and light… go for the pastry flour!)
1 Tablespoon Canola or EVOO
1 packet yeast
1 1/3 cup warm water
1 teaspoon salt
pinch of sugar

(I use my food processor with the bread blade for this.  Or you could use a stand mixer.  Or you can even mix by hand if you want.)

Dissolve yeast in warm water with a pinch of sugar.  Let it dissolve until it starts getting foamy.  (if it doesn’t foam your yeast are most likely dead) 


Add your flours and salt.


Let ‘er rip!

As its going, stream in your oil.


Let it go until it comes together and looks like dough.  If it’s really sticky you may have to add a little more flour.


Form it into a ball and put it in a bowl.  Let it rest covered in a warm place for an hour.  It will be all nice and puffy like this.


Divide it in two.  I like to freeze one for later.

Roll your dough out.  Be careful not to over work it or it will be tough.

Top with your fav toppings.  We did ours margherita style.  A little sauce, Daiya Cheese, torn basil leaves, and slices of Roma tomatoes.

Bake at 425 F until the crust is a nice golden brown and the cheese is melty.

Mama Mia!

Well, I had a whole post yesterday, but being the genius that I am, I didn’t save it before I tried to publish it and my sucky internet froze up whilst I was trying to publish and I lost the whole post!  I’ll try to recap real quick- it won’t be as good as the post I lost, but I’ll give it a go.

I’ll just post pictures and give comments on the pics instead of commentating the whole day.

A quick trip to the grocery…

Did you know that Dr Kracker’s are made right here in Dallas?!  I had no idea!  I don’t usually buy them because they are really expensive, but when I found that out I had to get some.  The pumpkin seed cheddar doesn’t disappoint!  Very tasty!  And pretty filling for a kracker!  I’m going to have to arrange a visit of some sort since they’re right here next to me!

I gave the amazing grass another go (last time I tried it, it upset my tummy.  I got a sample pack again to try it again and it was all good this time so I went back to get a tub of it.)  The chocolate flavor is so good!  I mix it with vanilla almond milk and it tastes just like chocolate milk, not “green” at all.




This was my last Ez 4:9 tortilla. Crying

In my quesadilla was black beans, cheddar, onions, bell pepper.  Toppins included salsa, big dollop of greek yogurt, and jalapenos!  SOOOO good and I just LOVE how filling those Ez 4:9 tortillas are!


This was supposed to be dessert, but it was NOT BUENO!  I only had about 3 bites and I chunked it.  This is the only SO Delicious product I’ve ever tried that I didn’t like.  Oh well, there was bound to be something, lol.


Consumed this on my way to workout with my trainer.  I haven’t worked out like that in weeks, my arms are so sore I can barely lift them!



When I got home from the gym it was PIZZA TIME!  I think this was the best one to date!!

I used this recipe for the dough (it’s the only one I use now.  I’ve searched the world over for a great healthy pizza crust recipe and this is it!  So hearty, but light at the same time, and crispy too!)

Toppings included mozzarella, turkey pepperoni, caramelized onions, and bell peppers. YUM!



I also made a great salad!  With toasted almonds, dried cranberries, feta, and light raspberry vinaigrette!

My plate!




While the pizza dough was rising, I worked on some blueberry muffins.  I’ve been meaning to make these for days and I finally got around to it.  Here’s the recipe.  I get so many great recipes and ideas from this blog, it’s my favorite!  Mine weren’t as pretty as hers, but they are MIGHTY tasty! Mine turned out a little darker because I used organic sucanat instead of cane sugar, and sucanat is about the same color as brown sugar.  They still tasted fabulous though.  Next time I might try it with some regular old cane sugar.  I don’t usually keep it in the house though…
