These are the ramblings of a self-described wheat, grain and gluten-free “gourmet girl” that loves to cook and eat good food. I love creating and sharing recipes and photographing “beautiful food”. In July 2012, I eliminated wheat, grains and added sugar from my diet and rediscovered real, whole fresh foods again and effortlessly lost 65+ pounds. Join me in my wheat, grain and gluten-free journey. See how easy it is to enjoy grain free gourmet, one meal at a time! Welcome to my blog. Enjoy!
Today was a crazy day here weather wise. Besides it being freezing cold here (literally)...we awoke to snow flurries that continued on and off during the day. While there wasn't any accumulation, it was totally bizarre to see snow of any sort here in March. What we are usually plagued with is sky-high pollen counts this time of year instead. Even at lunch time I saw snow flurries and I had to take a double take to believe that I was still seeing "snow" in the air when I was returning from lunch. Well, tonight hubby had a meeting he had to attend and I wasn't expecting him home before 9:30 or 10:00...so that meant it was just little old me for dinner...well, me and Spike (the Bichon) that is! So, I decided to make myself a super simple "Pizza for One". I made a batch of my Almond/Flax/Parmesan Herb Crust and decided to keep the toppings simple. After I baked the crust for 15 minutes, I topped it with some shredded mozzarella cheese and a diced (and seeded) fresh roma tomato and a light sprinkling of Parmigiano Reggiano and then popped it in the oven to bake for 5 minutes and then switched to broil for about 2 minutes until the cheese just began to bubble a bit. After it came out of the oven I topped it with some fresh torn basil and cracked black pepper. It was simple, fresh, quick and most importantly...delicious! On a freezing cold night like tonight, this was so much better and quicker than any take out pizza I could have ordered...hands down! ;-) I snapped a couple photos for you to see below and the link to the crust recipe is embedded in the different colored text above. Enjoy!
