Pizza anyone…?

Well of course the answer would be yes for most of you. I mean, who doesn’t like pizza? The topping options are endless and only limited y your imagination.

I love my pizza, more so as I now make my own bases, and can easily scoff a whole one if I’m hungry. I would then end up feeling bloated and sludgy. I have all but stopped eating bread for the same reason. So I went off on the hunt for something that would satisfy my love of pizza but leave me feeling more comfortable afterwards.
I’d heard about cauliflower base pizza around my various internet haunts and after talking to a few people, went to our all time favourite search party and let Google find me a recipe.
Several months after finding one and saving it, I finally have the time ( and inclination) to make it.
The verdict? Thinking it will become my pizza for Saturday nights.
– several years ago I started family pizza night with either games or movies, and it’s stuck. I’m not allowed to change or get rid of it –
I will tweak it a little, but it was so easy, and I got it done in the time the regular dough spent rising.

Recipe: Cauliflower pizza base

Things I made my own – enlisting help from mr 10 with the choice of herbs, he gave me chili flakes, coriander and basil to put in the cauliflower mix and my topping was zucchini, mushroom, red onion and baby spinach.
And it was oh so good. And being so healthy could try and use it as a side, if only the rest of my boys actually liked cauliflower. And yes, they’re that fussy. But then, I eat just about anything and will try most things.

It’s a baking day Saturday

8am, coffee hot and I’m ready to roll.
By ten past the pizza dough is rising and I have an hour to…
You know what, I’m not going to say much this time round, I’ll let the pictures do the talking instead.
I made chocolate slice,, choc chip cookies (with marshmallows), strawberry shortcake and jam drops.

Food Friday – awesome end to the week!

After a super hectic week, getting ready for tomorrow’s Fair I finally finished and was able to relax today. Despite the appearance of relaxing I still had heaps to do.
Straight up, I made the pizza bases ready for tomorrow’s dinner (after a hectic day the last nothing I want to do is this) and at 9am I had finished with the post office and was at a the school to organise things for two sons (school starts on wed/thurs next week) while the dough was rising. Pizza bases done I can start on lunch.

I love quiche because of its simplicity and relative ease of cooking. Today’s was really good, a creamier than usual, bacon and tomato version. I did burn the pastry – note to self: do not talk too much while pastry is blind baking.

A salad is always good with quiche, and today was no exception, with my coleslaw mix salad.

Morning tea was something I haven’t done in a long time, about 17 years. Yes really. It is such an easy and delicious food but I just never really make them. The awesome lemonade scones. Yes, lemonade scones. All you need is lemonade (nothing with too much of a lemon flavour) thickened cream and self raising flour. Find the recipe I used here. . All that was left by the time I was able to get a picture. The recipe makes about a dozen. And served with whipped cream and jam, they were melt in hot the mouth.

If that was lunch, what was for dinner…?
We did the groceries so it became a hot cooked chook and oven baked chips with salad, then mini pavlovas and cream and chocolate.
I’m working on a nice coffee to round out the brilliant end to a busy week .
Have a great weekend, I’m going to be super busy. 🙂
