Recipe for Grilled Zucchini Pizza Slices

Recipe for Grilled Zucchini Pizza Slices
This idea of grilled zucchini used as a base for pizza toppings is one of those cooking ideas that swirl around in my head, and sometimes I'm never sure if I thought of it or saw it somewhere else. I kept wondering how it would work to arrange a marriage between Grilled Zucchini and Val's Kid-Friendly Broiled Zucchini Rounds with Cheese, with the offspring having a little pizza personality, and when I saw Alea's Eggplant Pizza Bites on $5 Dinners, it convinced me to try it. Even so, this is only a recipe in the very loosest sense of the word, because anything you like on pizza could be cooked on top of a thick slice of grilled or broiled zucchini. I'm a pepperoni girl, so of course I had to have that, but the topping options are endless here. Admittedly, this is not a pizza in the truest sense of the word, but if you'd like pizza flavors with a "crust" that's gluten-free, low-glycemic, and low-carb, this is an idea you may end up liking just as much as I did!

Bacon-wrapped Jalapeno Chicken Bites 610K+Add bacon to anything and it will fly off the table. That’s what a caterer once told me and I believe it. Certainly applies here. Whether you’re planning a cookout this weekend or cooking indoors (rain predicted here in Texas), grill up a few of these sizzling treats for a quick appetizer or serve as an entree. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the Fourth of July than with a big plate of these spicy and cheesy, smoky and crispy chicken nuggets. If you don’t like hot, leave out the jalapenos or skimp a bit.

Spinach Crust Pizza Woooooooow! Another healthy blog post in the middle of December's Christmas baking frenzy. How does that happen? I have no idea...... I'm as surprised as you are. This recipe is as uber healthy as you can get. Yes. Really. It's delicious. I was trying to think of a way to describe this crust without making it sound like something you wouldn't want to make. Then I had a light bulb moment. The best way to describe this crust is to compare it to a tortilla. If you don't mind getting messy then you can try eating this with your hands (I did!) I was really surprised at how easy this is to make. And how amazingly tasty it is. And how healthy it is. (As per Fitday) Crust only: 400 calories, 29 fat, 5 carbs, 32 protein. With my toppings: 600 calories, 37 fat, 18 carbs, 48.7 protein. That's for the entire pizza. *gasp* I googled the nutritional info a plain cheese pizza of the same size (12 inches). Holy he-double-hockey-sticks. Spinach Crust Pizza Ingredients Crust 2 cups raw spinach leaves 1 egg (large) Toppings

Cauliflower Crust Pizza A co-worker of mine is currently on a special diet and has been experimenting with several low-carb dishes. One day a few weeks ago, she dropped by my office to tell me about a recipe she’d found – pizza crust made of cauliflower! Yes, it sounded a little strange, but I was definitely intrigued. She offered to bring a piece to the office the next day for me to sample and even day-old and reheated, it was really good! My husband is a pizza fanatic, so this new discovery was particularly exciting. With a hefty dose of veggies, I feel good about eating it myself and feeding it to him, which means he can get his pizza fix a lot more often now. I’m not going to lie and say it’s just like eating a flour pizza crust because it’s not. I’m interested to see what some of you think, so please, if you give it a go, come back and leave a comment! Ingredients: 1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese 1 egg, beaten 1 tsp dried oregano 1/2 tsp crushed garlic 1/2 tsp garlic salt Enjoy!

potato pancakes, even better It wouldn’tbeHanukah if I didn’t refresh my favorite, dead-simple potato pancake recipe. But it wouldn’t make for a very interesting story if I told the same one every year; in fact, I think they get better with each try because I continue to tweak them ever so much. This year, after finally making peace with my cast frying pan (coincidentally, over an “apple latke”) I cooked them in there, and will use no other pan for them as long as I live. In an ongoing, obsessive effort to create latkes that look precisely like the flying spaghetti monster/tiny piles of rope mops, I again attempted to create the longest strands of potato possible by placing them sideways in the feed tube of the food processor — the food processor not only saves a ton of time, it creates coarser, more visible strands. Next, I at last retired the sieve-pressing for a cheesecloth-squeezing. Finally, if you think that latkes are just for Hanukkah, with all due respect, you’re totally missing out. Or an appetizer.

Homemade Calzone I wanted to make something to take on the road, but the contents of the refrigerator were saying PIZZA. Hmmm... pizza is not so portable. Then I remembered CALZONE! Calzone is basically the same as pizza but with a much prettier appearance. Roll pizza dough into a rectangle the length of your baking sheet. Put sauce on the center half of the dough. Just like pizza, add your toppings (our favorites are pepperoni, olives, and mushrooms). Then add cheese. Now comes the special part. This is what it looks like when all the cuts are made. Then "wrap the baby." Here is the calzone ready to bake. Uh oh... don't do what I did. For the second one, I remembered to start with my rectangle of dough ON a baking sheet. By the way, the same dough wrapping technique can be used for sweet fillings too.

Individual Coffee Bags Hi, I’m Cathe (pronounced the same as Cathy). I’m a graphic designer, crafter, creative blogger, & flea market enthusiast. I live just north of San Francisco in lovely Petaluma, California with my husband, Mr. Plain Chicken A few weeks ago we ventured out for our traditional Saturday lunch. We decided to go to Another Broken Egg in Mountain Brook. We had eaten breakfast there once before and wanted to give the lunch items a try. I scanned the menu and quickly decided on the Big Rooster - grilled chicken, bacon and swiss. It was the best chicken sandwich ever! I could eat it every day. I went all out on this quiche and even made the crust.

Strawberry Margarita Jell-O Shots When thinking of Super Bowl foods strawberries don't usually make the cut. However... mix the strawberries with a little tequila and turn them into a margarita and you are getting closer! With our sunny Citrus Blush already mixed and in the pitcher we weren't really in need of another cocktail, but when I came across these cute little shots I couldn't resist putting them on my Super Bowl Extravaganza Table. Hollowed out strawberries work as a vehicle for a Jell-0 concoction of strawberry gelatin, tequila and a touch of Grand Marnier. Strawberry season here in San Diego is a tad behind schedule and I had a bit of trouble finding those beautiful, plump and bright red berries, but we made do with the Farmer's Market offerings and found some that were good enough. The gelatin is mixed with water, 4 oz of tequila and 2 oz of Grand Marnier. Edited 2/10/11: Tamera, in the comment section below, suggests using all liquor in the gelatin mix, no water.

Beef with Snow Peas This is not a Thanksgiving recipe. I repeat: This is not a Thanksgiving recipe. You’ve probably already figured that out by now. I was cooking my Thanksgiving recipes yesterday–chopping and rinsing and brining–and out of the blue, I knew. I knew. It came to me in a vision. I have long since stopped trying to ignore visions of words written on bright white walls. What about you guys? Oh. Never mind. Let’s just make the beef with snow peas and forget this ever happened…okay? My favorite meat for stir fry is flank steak, because it remains so, so tender when you slice it very thin. Look at that beautiful, beautiful beef. Yes, I’m married to a cattle rancher. Grab some soy sauce. Some sherry…(either cooking or regular sherry is fine.) Brown sugar. Some minced fresh ginger. Sometimes I slice the peel off of ginger, take a big whiff, and can’t believe what I’ve just experienced. Rosemary Cilantro Lemongrass I close my eyes and want to die from bliss when these scents enter my world. And the ginger.
