I hope you all had a great start to the month! :) Did anyone have any tricks played on them? Besides the one I played on you all this morning that is. muhaha.
I finished my secret order this afternoon with some Glo Banana bars + Bites:
I will be able to tell you this week who the lucky recipient of these bars is!
After I saw Kath’s recipe featured on The Mushroom Channel I knew I had to make this!
Of course, I had to put my own spin on things! I am not one to follow a recipe, so I improvised and made it vegan.
I must say, the idea of a green pizza appealed to me for obvious reasons!
- Homemade Honey Wheat Pizza Dough (Easiest dough you will ever make)
- 4 oz of mixed mushrooms, cremini, sliced (Eric didn’t have any)
- 6 oz baby organic spinach
- 1 tsp basil
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1/3 cup Light Cream cheese (For Eric’s pizza, it was all we had for cheese!)
- 1/3 cup Soy Yogurt
- 2 Tbsp Almonds
- Cooking spray
I decided to make a his and hers version since Eric doesn’t like mushrooms.
Eric got a deep dish version, mine on a flat round pan:
Next came the spinach mixture:
- 6 oz spinach, sauteed
- 1/3 cup (or a bit less) Soy yogurt
- 2 Tbsp Almonds
Process the green sauce in a food processor until mixed. Almonds add some crunch!
Spread on dough:
Then add the ingredients on top:
- St Ives Mexican Ground Round (so good!)
- Cream cheese
- St Ives Mexican Ground Round
Cook in the oven at 350 for about 15-20 mins.
Eric’s Deep Dish:
We both agreed that the pizza was better with some tomato sauce drizzled on top. I think because the pizza didn’t have the sharpness of the feta, it needed a little something extra. Next time for this vegan version, I would mix in some pizza sauce to add some kick and maybe a few chili pepper flakes. :)
All and all this pizza was a delicious and healthy twist on the traditional pizza. In the green sauce was about 5 cups of baby spinach- we sure got in our greens tonight! :)
And yes, I love the white dollarstore plates so much I washed it from lunch and used it again. Eric got the regular ol’ Debbie Travis ones. lol.
I said to Eric, “I think I am going to buy a whole set of these white plates at the Dollarstore!! You know, I think they are better quality than many of our own plates.”
To which he replied, “Good, we can take back all of our china from the wedding.”
Oh and just for the record, I had a 4th tiny slice after those three! I ate about 2/3’s of my pizza. Eric had 3/4 of his.
Eric said that was his favourite pizza dough crust out of any crust he has ever had in his life! I must say I think I agree! It was so fluffy!
Have a great night!
I’m off to do some paperwork. :) See you tomorrow for FAQ’s!!! There are Soooo many! eek.
