Pizza and Ice Cream Kind of Night

24 Jul

It’s WIAW a little early today!

I know in the last post, I said I was going to turn into a zucchini from eating so many lately, but now I’m convinced I will soon be a chicken.

Eggs, eggs, and more eggs is what I have been eating. I can’t get enough. For breakfasts, I’ve been doing 2 drippy eggs along with 3 egg whites for some added protein punch. Then I top it with lot of fresh cracked salt and pepper. Saltier the better.

Along with my eggs, I will have a carb and a fruit to round things out:

This time it was two Van’s Light Waffles with cinnamon, butter, and sliced banana.

Bananas have taken a backseat since it’s berry and peach season at the moment, but I decided to pick up a few. Now I just want more berries.

Oops, I did it again

except not oops, because this was darn delicious. Making your own pizza crust makes all the difference in the world. It is actually really easy to do, too! Let’s take a look, shall we?

Triple Grain Hand Tossed Power Pizza

  • 1.5 cups oat flour
  • .5 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • .5 cup wheat bran
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • pinch of salt, oregano, basil, and garlic powder

1. Combine warm water with active dry yeast in a bowl and let completely dissolve-about 4-5 minutes.

2. mix flours with salt and seasonings in a bowl.

3. Pour yeast water into flour bowl and begin to mix everything together.

4. Add in your tbsp of olive oil and mix it in.

5. Knead your dough, mixing it well to get out all the air bubbles. I give it a good five minutes. It will thicken the longer you work with it. Mixture will be sticky. Don’t be alarmed, think you have failed, and contemplate throwing the whole thing away (not that I did that or anything.)

6. Cover mixing bowl with a towel and allow the dough to rise for about 1 hour.

7. Once the hour has passed, you can spread the dough out onto a pizza pan. I line one with foil sprayed with cooking spray. Makes for easy clean up. The mixture will be hard to spread, but just play with it until it’s all spread out.

8. Preheat oven to 500 degrees.

9. Put sauce/toppings on your pizza while oven is preheating. Don’t put it in the oven until it’s fully heated.

10. Bake for about 10 minutes.

11. Switch your oven to the broiler setting and bake an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese starts to slightly brown.

12. Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing and digging in! This allows the cheese and sauce to settle and thicken so it is not runny.

Okay, that seems like a lot of steps, but it really is EASY PEASY. Trust me. And it’s worth it!

Cheese Mixture

  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup lowfat cottage cheese
  • 2 laughing cow cheese wedges
  • dash of garlic powder and italian seasonings

Mix together and spread onto pizza after sauce layer.

Top with fresh basil for extra yum.

served with roasted zucchini pasta, because i’m obsessed.

Amazing. Thick, doughy, and dense. Yet light and healthy at the same time.

Dessert was quite amazing, too. I have been all about FRO YO with this crazy hot (and humid) weather we have been experiencing. I usually top my homemade fro yo with nut butter or healthy chocolate sauce, but this time I whipped out something even better:

Canned coconut milk, turned whipped cream

I used Katie’s easy instructions for this, which you essentially just open the can, cover the top, and stick it in the fridge. It thickens into the most magnificent fresh whipped cream you’ve ever tasted. You must use full fat coconut milk though. Fat is good!!!

IMG 3792

1 cup greek yogurt, 20 grams vanilla casein protein, 1/4 cup almond milk, vanilla extract—>freeze and then re-blend into ice cream consistency.

Topped with 1/3 cup of coconut milk whipped cream.

UHHH MAZING! Next time I will try blending the coconut cream into the actual ice cream base. I have a feeling I will not be disappointed…

I will also never have any desire to buy this stuff again:

It’s a million times better and doesn’t contain any chemicals or other weird ingredients. Win? Oh yes.

Okay, best thing you’ve eaten today? GO!

    I <3 your WIAW's!

    Pizza IS something I always want to make myself( so I can get creative with lotsa healthy toppings!), but don't. Because as you said, it seems like a lot of bother- you have convinced me to try it with this recipe, it looks delicious! I love the use of oat flour and wheatbran, I could never find such wholesome, nutritious ingredients in any store bought pizza round here.

    Cauliflower roasted in hemp oil , nooch and salt&pepper was DEFINITELY one of the best things I ate today. It was my 1st time trying this and it turned out amazing:).

    Your WIAW is my favourite, too! Your food always makes me feel bad about mine. I eat so boring, when I could make creative things like this and still be healthy. So inspiring!

  7. Alexandra July 25, 2012 at 9:17 am #

    That is the same way I like my eggs. I don’t use pepper a lot but on eggs like that…it’s a must!

    My favorite meal right now is my breakfast…hard boiled eggs, salsa, rice and avocado and hot sauce…..yum!

  11. StoriesAndSweetPotatoes July 25, 2012 at 9:08 pm #

    Wow that’s so crazy about the coconut milk!! I’m going to try and make cauliflower pizza this week!

  12. kelloggsfiberpluskati July 26, 2012 at 3:03 am #

    Look at all those yummy eats! I even see a few fiber-rich foods in the mix. And I’m intrigued by your coconut milk whipped cream – sounds delicious! I’ll have to give it a try sometime.

  13. Living, Learning, Eating July 26, 2012 at 1:04 pm #

    Your eats look tasty! I pinned several things here, yum :) And my grandmother used to make us hot dog spaghetti with ketchup, it was one of my favorites!

    Best thing I’ve eaten today was a wrap with peanut butter, a dollop of caramel sauce, a bunch of carob chips, and chocolate pecan turtles wrapped up in it. Soooooo decadent and you might be wondering, since it’s early, but sometimes I have dessert for breakfast (no shame).

  14. Courtney July 26, 2012 at 2:49 pm #

    Oh yum! That pizza looks especially delicious :D and the best thing I’ve eaten today was my breakfast… which may or may not have been health-ified brownies that I made yesterday. ;)

  15. Lisa July 26, 2012 at 7:42 pm #

    Haha, I’ still thinking I’ll turn into some form of broccoli slaw or pumpkin. Its possible by the amounts I’m eating.;)
    I’m the same with the berries, I’ve been eating them up the wazoo.
    Oh goodness, that pizza crust looks incredible! Is cooking with yeast freaky? I feel like I would fail miserably with experimenting with it.
    Wow, that coconut whipped cream looks fake looking! And I mean that in a delicious way haha. I’ve got to pick up a can! You know I love my coconut products:)

  16. paoang July 26, 2012 at 9:46 pm #

    I am with you on the egg lovin’! I’ve eaten at least an egg a day during this last week haha – can’t get enough. The pizza looks delicious by the way – I’ve never made my own before!

  17. onehealthymunchkin July 27, 2012 at 11:43 pm #

    Homemade pizza crust is the best! And yours looks so delicious. I love how you added in a bunch of different grains to it. :D

    And thanks for reminding me about that coconut milk whipped cream trick – I’ve been meaning to try that!
