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)
Green pepper
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!

Natural home grown spices


About 25 years ago I started drying some of my own veggies which back then wasn’t very many! I started with Celery and green peppers ; now through the years and more time after having had raised 4 boys things have changed.

Living in a little River town the past 23 years I began doing a garden again and canning and freezing along with drying veggies and herbs!

So here are a few items I make with some of my dried vegetables and herbs.

I dried my own Celery last fall and keep in canning jars. It’s so nice to have for soups, stew and such!
