herbed spelt pizza crust (vegan, whole grain)

Pizza night around our home is a weekly event. Usually I plan it for Friday nights, but have been known to mix things up occasionally. For awhile, this recipe was my go to for the crust (clearly I’ve been working on my food photography) since I wanted to cut the carbs and boost the nutrition, but truth be told, it takes a little more work than the traditional dough.

But I’m here for you, chocolate, and created this Valentine’s Day recipe round up which gives …

I can’t decide which I like better: chocolate + coffee or chocolate + hazelnuts. Hmmmm…. If you had to pick one, what would you choose? (Tell me in the comments.) Fortunately, we don’t have to choose one over the other because I’ve brought both together is this mocha hazelnut torte! It’s a dessert that looks decadent, but contains only whole food, added sugar free ingredients, so it’s a recipe that loves your body back.
