Tasty Tuesday: Pizza modified



We normally have homemade pizza every other week or so. We make our own crust from one of several recipes that we've collected over the years. I'd share them here, but I would need to get copyright permission first and I'm feeling kind of lazy about that as I type this up, so instead, you'll get the crust recipe that I got to use since I can't eat carbs anymore.

I found this recipe for Cauliflower Crust Pizza from Eat.Drink.Smile via pinterest. I followed the directions almost exactly, my one alteration was how I riced the cauliflower, I used the grater on my food processor.  It worked great. Not only did it taste good, but I could pick it up like pizza, now I did let it rest a good long time before putting it under the broiler, because of the fact that there were other pizzas that needed to be cooked. It's unusual because not only does it work for pizza, it's close enough to the real thing that you eat it and think "There's something different about this, but I don't quite know what it is."

Okay, I will also share with you one of our pizza sauce recipes.

1 can tomato past with Italian herbs
1 small can tomato sauce
1 small onion chopped
1 clove garlic chopped fine
Olive oil

Heat a tablespoon or so of olive oil in a pan, add onion. Cook until tender and starting to brown, add garlic and cook until fragrant (just a few seconds). Add tomato paste and sauce, heat through. Viola, pizza sauce.

You can add your own seasonings to it like basil, oregano, marjoram, etc. It's very accepting of your experimentation.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

Project 52: Shiver me dufuses

This date I pulled out a puzzle that I had bought for Joel years ago.  I put up a little camp table , and even devised a system to keep the pieces in place with some fabric, so we could roll it up and stow it.  I was all ready to go and then the reality of the puzzle set in and I realised, I don't like puzzles.  I was already frustrated and worn out by the darn thing and we were only a mere few minutes into working on it!  Instead of getting upset, we changed plans. The puzzle was abandoned and Joel went out for a shamrock shake from McD's and two cherry pies.  We played some MadLibs .  The one we bought for Hannah today was Pirate themed and the story that was the funniest included a peg elbow and a pet pencil sitting on your shoulder saying "Shiver me dufuses!" We even had a joke book that we'd picked up for Hannah and read a couple of terrible jokes to one another while shuffling cards for cribbage. A fun night full of laughter and green shakes.  Well, I&#

KAF No-Fuss Focaccia

I really like making bread.  It's fun to get your hands dirty, but I understand that yeast is a scary thing for people who don't have experience with it.  Somehow, I started using it when I was young and too immature to understand the fear that comes along with wasting time, money and energy.  I had time and energy in abundance.  My first real forte into baking was in the 7 th grade.  I must have cooked before then because I choose to see which flour rose the highest using a cinnamon roll recipe.  I made a lot of cinnamon rolls that year and when I turned in my report, there were questions asked of me that I had no idea what she meant.  Questions about the weather and the heat of the oven.  Things that I didn't know could make a difference in the baking of bread.  Lots has happened since that first memorable baking.  Today, I invited a friend over to make bread.  I was kind of concerned about the strength of the yeast, because we bought a huge stash of it last year someti
