Gluten free, dairy free and wheat free PIZZA!

Wow it has been too long since I have been on here! I still am not sure what to start my blogging about again so I chose to share a recipe from our dinner a few days ago!

I know many of you have come to my blog from my sister-in-law's blog, and she often shared gluten free recipes because she recently found out her body just does NOT do gluten! So here is our yummy whole grain pizza we made:


1 pkg. Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix
1 1/2 Cups Warm Water
2 Eggs
2 TBSP. Olive Oil
Yeast Packet (which is enclosed in Bob's Red Mill Pizza Crust Mix)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl, combine water and yeast. Let stand a few minutes. Add eggs and oil to mixture and blend briefly. Add GF Pizza Crust Mix and blend about a minute on medium speed, until combined. Leaving dough in bowl, split in half, cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise for 20 minutes. Place dough on greased pizza pans (or Pampered Chef Round Stoneware). Using wet hands, spread out dough to cover the full pizza pan. Bake without toppings for 7-9 minutes.
Remove from oven, cover with favorite sauce and toppings. Bake for 15-18 minutes.

Makes two 12-inch or one 16 inch pizza crusts.

Dough can be stored in the refrigerator for a few days. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and store in plastic bag. When ready to bake, take dough out of refrigerator and allow to rest 30 minutes. Spread dough onto greased pizza pan and bake as directed.

I have included a couple pictures of our first pizza - we chose Canadian bacon and pineapple. If we want to stay on the healthy side you can easily do all veggies, chicken, maybe some fruit whatever you feel like! Hope you enjoy it!!

And I'm very curious if my sister-in-law has tried this recipe, hint hint, so if you read this let me know what you think!

My Card Garland!

I am so proud - this card garland idea I first saw on the Celebrating Christmas blog (see sidebar for link) and then went to the original blog it came from but anyhow I loved the idea and wanted to show you that I did it!! I wanted it done quickly so I bought already painted decorations for the ends of the clothespins instead of painting some myself! I got so many wonderful yummy new recipes and ideas for Christmastime this year and enjoyed trying all of them. My card garland was a favorite displaying all the Christmas Greetings we received from family and friends throughout the season. I posted some pics for you to see! (Our favorite recipe I found was the Wassail oh man was it delicious!!!)
