Saturday Night's Pajama Pizza Party - Grain Free Pizza

Today was a relaxing day. We had intended to run a few errands this afternoon but neither hubby or I felt like we just stayed home and enjoyed the peace and quiet and relaxing for a change. We slept in a bit this morning and enjoyed a quick and easy breakfast by simply reheating my grain free "No-Flip Blueberry Pancakes" and sausage leftover from yesterday's breakfast. We didn't eat again until this evening. 

I decided to make pizza for dinner this evening. Besides sauce and mozzarella, I topped it with Fiorucci uncured pepperoni, sauteed baby spinach, red bell peppers and onions. I served it alongside a big salad made with a "7 superfoods salad mix" that I get at Costco. It comes with its own poppyseed dressing that hubby eats. I make my own "Chipotle Cranberry Vinaigrette Dressing" consisting of my cranberry sauce, avocado oil, apple cider vinegar, chipotle roasted garlic seasoning and a bit of sea salt. I absolutely love it because it contains thinly sliced brussels sprouts, kale and other greens and the cranberry dressing on top is amazing. But, the best thing about tonight's dinner besides the pizza and salad was that we ate in the dining room (instead of the kitchen) dressed in our pajamas! I snapped a few photos of our dinner below (using my new camera). I'm still learning how to use it and hope to master it soon. The pizza recipe can be found here: Low Carb Pizza. Enjoy!

I've got to ask, are you really paying $84 for a five pound bag of almond flour? That's just insane. I want to make these recipes, but think I'm going to have to just go with the almond meal.

Nooooooooooooooooooo...I've never ever paid that. I'm guessing that it's coming from another seller via Amazon if the price is that high. They also have sales and I when I buy it I try and wait for a 15 or 20% off sale (regular price fluctuates from $40-$45). I just checked and that price is being charged by 3 different "re-sellers". I'd stay away from them. There is another company called Anthony's I see on Amazon that is selling 5 lbs for $39.99 or their culinary grade (extra fine) for $46.99. Do NOT pay $84 for almond pun intended, but that price is "nuts"! :-)
