a pizza experiment

There are lots of things to celebrate in this post! Today marks Mr. Stevie Y’s 2nd birthday. I can’t believe he’s 2! I just remember picking him as this little 4 pound orange and white ball of fury like it was only a couple of months ago! Now… well now he is a 17 pound orange and white tank of fury.

In reality despite his previous love of chewing phone auxiliary chords, he’s been a great cat. LO loves him and well OH pretends to dislike him, but the amount of cuddling that man does with the cat proves otherwise.

So here I am celebrating a short 2 years of this cat’s life and hoping for another 20 years to go!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEVIE!

The next little celebratory “YAY!” is that this is the 50th post for me. What better way to celebrate then to make pizza! Yum!

Recently we found out that OH suffers from Candida, so I have been making dishes and creating recipes to try and lower his outbreaks naturally, without comprimising his love for bread. One particularly lazy night I decided to make a yeast free pizza dough that I have made before. This time I changed it up a little and it worked out just fine!

Ingredients;

  •  1 C of unbleached all-purpose flour (+1 tbsp for rolling the dough)
  • 1 C of yellow corn flour
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tbsp of Italian herb mix
  • 2 tsps of garlic salt
  • 2/3 C of water
  • 1/4 C of olive oil
  • Pizza sauce
  • Toppings of your choice
  • Grated cheese

Preheat the oven to 400°F. In a large bowl add in the flours, herbs, garlic salt and baking powder.

Mix the dry ingredients together and make a well in the center. Slowly pour in 2/3 C of lukewarm water.

Use a spatula, fork or your own hands to mix the ingredients and form a dough ball. If you find it too sticky, add a pinch more corn flour.

On a clean, flat surface sprinkle some all purpose flour and start rolling the dough ball out flat.

1/4 inch thickness is usually my go to for pretty much everything in the baked world… except cookies.

Place on a baking sheet (Or if you’re fancy, a pizza pan) and use your olive oil to coat the top of the dough. I have a silicone basting brush so it was super quick and easy.

Place in the oven for about 10-12 minutes. Cut up your veggies or prepare whatever toppings you want on the delicious pizza. We used yellow onion, yellow sweet pepper and black olives. We only had medium cheddar so that was what was going on

Take the now pizza crust out and leave the oven on. I cut the crust in half because different ingredients were going on each half.

Dress the pizza crust with your ingredients and pop it back into the oven for 5-7 minutes. I also broiled the cheese for about 2 minutes just to get that bubbly, melty cheese.

I served it with a coleslaw that had a sugar-free dressing. Both were superb.
