So this is the post for you guys!

______________________________

A new yummy breakfast… 

I’ve seen people “frying” bananas in blog land… I didn’t really get it, but now I do!!

Cinnamon raisin English muffin with peanut butter and fried banana!!

Frying the banana makes it warm and caramely!  MMMMMMMm

Lunch!!

I went to a friends the other day, and she made these salad rolls with wraps and smeared curry paste on the rice and filled it with veg… I followed her lead and it’s SO GOOD!

I just used a mild curry paste (red curry I think), and after the rice was cooked, I mixed it into the rice, then added it to the warp with cucumber, peppers and peas!!  In a dream world, I would have had fresh cilantro in the mix too! YUM!

________________________

Dinners – I’ve had some good ones!

I followed the salad wraps with a tasty VERY random curry…

In the mix is potatoes, mushrooms, zucchini, almonds and mango with some curry paste, about a tsp of coconut concentrate and some water – served over rice!

One trick I learned with curry,  if it’s too hot, add a little sugar, it cools it down!!

This was a tasty meal!! I was pretty excited for the left overs!

AND THEN IT HAPPENED!

I was inspired by Noelle at Opera Singer in the Kitchen

and her Mediterranean Pizza

I used the recipe for dough from the pizza yeast jar.

________________________________

Perfect Pizza Dough

Makes 1 regular 12 inch crust

Combine 1 cup all purpose flour, 2 1/4 un-dissolved pizza crust yeast,  1-1/2 tsp sugar, 3/4 tsp salt… 

Mix together in a bowl.

Add in 2/3 cup very warm water ,

Mix until well blended – the dough ball should be slightly sticky.

Kneed for 4 minutes

Flatten onto greased pan.

Bake at 450

_____________________

I bake the crust for about 5 minutes and then flip it and add the ingredients to the cooked side!

My ingredients included:

Hummus for the base,  nooch and pepper sprinkled on top

Marinated artichokes and sundried tomatoes

Zucchinis, peppers, onions and mushrooms

All baked to perfection.

____________________________

While it was cooking, I quickly cut up some lettuce and massaged in some olive oil, balsamic vinegar, zataar and pepper and added the salad to the top of the pizza!

The salad made the pizza extra delicious!! Gave it even more flavor!

Out of the many pizza’s I have made in the last few months, this takes the cake for sure!!   The left overs – minus the salad were amazing too!!

__________________________

Have you ever had pizza with raw ingredients on top? 

Thank you Noelle for the inspiration, and I HIGHLY recommend checking out her recipe – it’s totally different, but looks amazing!
