Today was a crazy day in terms of school work.  I will spare you the boring details, but I managed to cross a couple important things off my list.  Instead of school, I’ll just talk about food!

Tonight was a disaster in terms of my attempt to make gluten-free pizza dough.  It’s embarrassing because it was a mix from a box…pretty tough to screw up!


I bought this mix at Whole Foods earlier this week in anticipation of Friday’s Pizza Night.  Dave was all set since he is not going gluten-free in any way.  But I wanted to partake too, so I was excited to find this mix.  Unfortunately, I didn’t read the added ingredients.  I didn’t have any eggs, so I substituted in eggbeaters.  It may have worked, but I think I needed to use less because the batter was just too wet and sticky.  I will try again with real eggs.  I will also add only a little water at a time.  I think it woul dhave been fine if I had used less liquid.  Live and learn!  this batch went straight to the garbage can.  It was too sticky to be salvageable.


Since I lost my dough, I had to come up with a quick replacement.  So I grabbed a corn tortilla and a brown rice tortilla, put sauce and ricotta cheese on each, and then topped them with lots of veggies I had cooked up earlier this week.  I was curious to see which “crust” I would prefer.

In the end, I couldn’t decide.  They both turned out to be really good.  I would use either one again (although the brown rice tortilla is bigger, so I get more pizza!)

I have been staring at my computer for the last 6 hours, so I am going to crash on the couch with my sweetie and watch last night’s Grey’s Anatomy!

Tomorrow….. Applepicking!
