Hasselback Pizza Bread
The Hasselback techinique—making crosswise cuts in a vegetable, fruit or in this case, a baguette, to create space for adding in additional flavors like cheese—turns whole-grain bread into a fast and easy pizza in this fun recipe. We like classic pepperoni and basil, but feel free to squeeze in your favorite toppings…….

Roasted Buffalo Chickpeas
Soaking chickpeas in vinegary hot sauce gives them a mouthwatering tang before they crisp up in the oven. The result? An addictively crunchy snack that’s actually good for you……

Edamame with Aleppo Pepper
With fruity undertones and a slight cumin taste, Aleppo pepper gives this healthy protein snack some satisfying flavor……….

Today’s Menu: Pizza Bread 2 Ways


Pizza Bread 2 Ways 014
We have a gorgeous day out there today! No rain, no humidity, and plenty of sunshine! Had a high of 81 and all that humidity is gone. Had Ham and Cheese on a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin for Breakfast. Had to run an errand for Mom and then to Kroger to pick up a few items for dinner tonight. Back home and got the cart out and rode around enjoying this beautiful day. For dinner tonight I prepared Pizza Bread 2 Ways.




Pizza Bread 2 Ways 001

I got the idea for this recipe from the Pioneer Woman – Ree Drummond, who has so many delicious recipes. She had made Pizza Bread 6 Ways on her show. To prepare the Pizza Bread – I’ll need; Pizza Base: 3 deli rolls or small Baguettes (halved), One 24-ounce jar Marinara Sauce, four 8-ounce packages fresh Mozzarella (sliced). Then to make the Canadian Bacon and Pineapple Pizza Bread – 5 ounces Canadian bacon slices (halved), 8 ounces canned Dole Pineapple Chunks. For the Pepperoni and Mushroom Pizza Bread – Hormel Turkey Pepperoni Slices, sliced Baby Bella Mushrooms.



Pizza Bread 2 Ways 010

To prepare them; Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Lay the rolls cut-side up on a large baking sheet. Top each half with marinara sauce, followed by the mozzarella. Then add your toppings of choice. Once the pizzas are assembled, put the baking sheet on the lowest rack for 8 to 10 minutes. Then turn up the heat to 425 degrees F and put the sheet on the highest rack until the cheese starts to bubble a bit and turns golden. Remove and serve immediately! If you prefer you can cut the pizzas in half right across the middle so there are mini French bread pizzas. The perfect recipe for Pizza Bread! Fantastic flavor and tastes so fresh, and so easy to make. For dessert later a bowl of Del Monte No Sugar Added Sliced Peaches.

Today’s Menu: Pizza Bread w/ Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower



Well if you live in or around Cincinnati you know it’s Opening Day. For this area as it’s always been it’s Christmas, Thanksgiving, and all the other Holiday tied into one day, Opening Day! It starts with 95th consecutive Findlay Market Parade that goes through the heart of Cincinnati and the party shifts on over to the Ball Park for the Red’s Opener. It’s the one day where kids can miss school for a day and you can call in sick to work, because they all know what you’re really doing! They might as well make it an official Holiday around here, which they’re trying to do I hear.



Pizza Bread Buffalo Cauliflower 005
It’s a perfect day out today, sunny with a high close to 70 degrees! About time don’t you think. What a Winter we’ve had, along with the rest of the nation. Went to Walmart early and finally got a new gas grill, our other one finally died after 8 years. I haven’t got it together yet but can’t wait to fire it up! I’d like to try to buy a small smoker hopefully here shortly. For dinner tonight something a little different, Pizza Bread w/ Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower. A buddy of mine came over and watched the Red’s Game with me, so I whipped this up for us.




Pizza Bread Buffalo Cauliflower 001
Started by preheating my oven to 400 degrees. I used a loaf of Goldminer California Sourdough Bread. I cut the loaf in half, lengthwise, and then cut halves into small slices. I think normally a French Bread Loaf is used but the Sourdough Loaf has fewer calories and carbs, plus it bakes just as well also. After cutting the bread, using a small basting brush, I spread a very light coat of Extra Virgin Olive Oil across the tops of each slice. Put them on a foil lined Cookie Sheet and baked them for about 4 minutes, just to lightly crust the tops. Removed them from the oven and assembled y Pizza Breads.




Pizza Bread Buffalo Cauliflower 004
For toppings I used a small can of Sliced Black Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage (crumbled), fresh grated Light Havarti Cheese, fresh grated Light Monterey Jack Cheese, and Ragu Homemade Style pizza Sauce. As always I try to cut calories, fat, and carbs where I can on ingredients. The Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage comes in a roll. So I sliced several pieces of and crumbled them and fried them in Canola oil until they were done. Drained what little grease there was and it was ready to be used as a topping. I had bought the Light Cheese from Kroger, it comes in blocks and I grate and shred them myself. After heating the bread I topped them with the Ragu Sauce, then the Turkey Pepperoni, Crumbled Turkey Sausage, sliced Black Olives, and a blend of the Havarti and Monterey Jack to top everything off. These looked good and tasted even better! The Bread was nice and crusty, the Ragu Sauce added great flavor and seasoning, and the blend of the two Cheese was perfect. Very good recipe for Pizza Bread



I made this for the first time a while back and love it for a side to go with any dish! To prepare it I needed; 1 head cauliflower (cut into florets), 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and pepper to taste, 1/4 cup or more) hot sauce, and blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping. Then to make it is really easy I just tossed the cauliflower florets in the oil, salt and pepper, arranged in a single layer on a baking sheet and roasted in a preheated 400F oven until lightly golden brown, about 20-30 minutes. Then, the good part, toss the cauliflower in the hot sauce. Serve it warm with blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping and celery sticks on the side. It’s one delicious and healthy side dish! The Pizza Bread and Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower not my normal dinner but one delicious change! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding.






Buffalo Roasted Cauliflower




1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
1 tablespoon oil
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup hot sauce
blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping (optional)



Toss the cauliflower florets in the oil, salt and pepper, arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast in a preheated 400F oven until lightly golden brown, about 20-30 minutes.
Toss cauliflower in the hot sauce and enjoy warm with blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping and celery sticks on the side.
