Two Ingredient Pizza Crust

                             Healthy Pizza that taste good!!

 

2 ingredient dough: (6 sp total)
1/2 C self rising flour
Slightly less than 1/2 C plain Greek yogurt

Mix together (will be crumbly-keep working with it). Roll into a ball and then place on greased pizza pan and flatten or roll out(I used parchment paper instead of cooking spray because I don’t like my pizza pan sprayed).
I sprinkled Italian herbs on the crust before the sauce.

I used:
1/4C pizza sauce (1 sp)
1/2 C low fat mozzarella cheese (4sp)
Mushrooms
Green pepper
Onions
I would’ve added chicken if I’d have had some. I added Turkey Pepperoni.

Bake in oven at 375 for 23-25 min

11 points for entire pizza. So filling!

Bread Facts

Not ALL bread is treated equal

Did you know?  All whole-wheat bread is brown, but not all brown bead is whole wheat.

By Law, bread that is labeled “whole-wheat” must be made from 100 percent whole-wheat flour.

Bread labeled “wheat” bread need not be made from whole-wheat flour and is likely made from mostly white flour.

Theirs something for you to chew on!!

Whole-grain breads are important for dietary fiber.  They also contain folate, magnesium and phosphorus in addition to the nutrients found in enriched white bread.

So what are whole Grains?   Well whole grains are products that contain the Entire kernel, or all the kernel that is edible.  Some examples are whole wheat, cracked wheat, oatmeal, whole cornmeal, popcorn, brown rice, whole rye, and scotch barley.

whole grain “doesn’t have to mean bread or cereal. It can be rice cakes, corn tortillas or taco shells,(yum), whole-wheat pasta, scotch barley in soups, or tabbouleh salad.

We should eat six-nine servings of grain a day!    Unless your a Keto- Eatter!

Well theirs a little food for thought!  Happy Grains to You!

German Dark Rye Bread

A Great Healthy Bread

  • 3 cups regular flour
  • 4 1/2 tsp (2 pk) active dry year
  • 1/4 cup of  baking  cocoa powder
  • 1 T Caraway seeds
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/3 cup of Molasses
  • 2 T Butter
  • 1 T Sugar
  • 1 T Salt

3- 3 1/2 cups of Rye Flour

In large mixing bowl combine regular flour, yeast, cocoa powder and caraway seeds until blended well.

In a saucepan combine the water, molasses, butter, sugar and salt; heat until just warm and stir to melt butter.   Add to dry mixture.  Beat at low speed for 30 sec and then turn to higher speed and beat for 3 minutes more.

By hand, stir in enough rye flour to make a soft dough.  Turn out onto floured surface and knead until smooth, adding more rye flour as needed, about 5 minutes.   Cover and let stand 20 min.

Punch down dough and divide dough in half.  Shape each half into a round loaf ; placed on greased baking sheets or 2 greased bread pans.  Brush surface of bread with a little cooking oil.  Slash tops of loaves with a sharp knife.  Let rise until double, about 45-60 min.

Bake at 400 degrees or until bread looks done.

 

This bread is amazing!  soft, and Great Taste with good fiber!

I found the recipe in “The Homestyle Amish Kitchen cookbook”
