plant-powered pizza crust (vegan, gluten free)

Finally! I feel like I can enjoy pizza again. Since changing my diet to a plant-based one, I also found myself losing my desire to eat wheat-based foods. I experimented with a few pizza crust recipes, including a cauliflower one, but hadn’t found one that I really loved until now. This pizza crust is mostly potato, a little bit of cauliflower and can be made with a gluten-free flour of your choice…I prefer brown rice flour. It’s chewy and crusty and holds up well under all the toppings. I could seriously eat them as is. I prefer to make these …

brussels sprout & “bacon” pizza (vegan)

The weather finally is whispering spring. My children actually want to play outside. I wore shoes, not boots, outside for the first time since I can’t remember when (not counting my time in the DR). Today the boys rode their bikes to school. Yet I know we’re not in the clear yet…a spring snow is still a possibility.

It’s a pizza featuring the warming heat of peppers and topped with raw Brussels …

When my children were little, we discovered this book at the library. It included a recipe for pizza dough in the back and we decided to give it a try. Friday pizza nights with the “Pizza for Everyone” crust quickly became a family tradition, one that was often accompanied by a movie. Though we don’t strictly adhere to this tradition all the time, I usually plan for pizza night once a week (and make a few extra personal pizzas to tuck into school lunches). I’ve adapted the original recipe to include whole grains and reduce the gluten content. I’m also …

marinara sauce for pasta or pizza, oil & sugar free

For the longest time I could not bring myself to eat pasta with sauce on it.  Chalk it up to getting the flu after eating spaghetti for dinner. Instead, I requested my spaghetti be served with Italian Salad Dressing. Years went by until I worked up the nerve to start eating pasta with a little bit of sauce, but it wasn’t until I went to Venice, Italy as a senior in high school that I finally understood why people love pasta. I started making my own sauce a few years ago when I switched to eating vegan and also cutting …
