I love pinterest! However I try to be brutally honest with myself at all times, although there is the misconception: Brittany the Dreamer, I am very real with myself. I know when something is a problem. Pinterest can be a problem for me, the wildly creative, ,with the imagination that takes off at full speed. There is no trotting, jogging or walking my imagination, it takes off full throttle. Add to that the visualization that my brain feeds off of and Pinterest can be a little over-consuming. A little over-whelming. Too many ideas. Too much inspiration. How that happens I don’t know, but I guess is a good thing for all of you, I just have to get around to creating all of the ideas streaming through my head and penciled onto one of my string of blog lists I have. Plus all the ideas I have for a cookbook. How do I simplify? How do I edit and cut back? A little too much fervor, but hey I guess to many ideas isn’t the worst problem a girl can have (believe me after a month working in the ER I know this now more than ever, my worries and problems are nothing). So back to Pinterest. I have this secret food board (because I don’t want people to see all these sugar & grain filled recipes) for recipe inspiration. Awesome looking dishes to challenge me. How do I make this gluten-free? How do I cut out the refined sugars? Always up to a challenge, one such recipes on hidden board was for a pizza bread. Holy sh** (I’ll keep this reader friendly as I’ve gotten a little flack for my language, what can I say I write like I talk and sometimes I say sh**), I have to make that happen. And so I have. Last Sunday all my closest friends happened to be free: Girls Night. Nowadays getting us altogether is a celebration because it doesn’t happen often. What to make? Naturally we opted for the Paleo Pizza (click the link, Tab and I usually make this ever-other week). I decided to add the pizza bread. Let’s give it a go. It sounds to amazing to not work out. This will be great. This little self-pep-talk did the trick because this was fantastic! Sick of the sweet baked goods, here is a savory treat! The bread recipe is inspired by Elana’s Pantry, because it is the best I have found. Click the link to get it, but note I don’t use flax, instead I use all coconut flour in place.
- Elana’s Pantry Bread Recipe
- 1/2 cup Finely diced Bell Peppers (yellow, green, red, and orange)
- 3 tbsp Minced Garlic
- Italian Seasoning
- Chopped Pepperoni
- 1/4 cup diced tomato
Let’s Make it Happen: dice and chop all of your vegetables, plus the pepperoni. Make the bread recipe. Fold in the cut up ingredients. Season. Fold in half the cheese if you’ve opted to include it. Pour into a coconut greased loaf pan. Spread out evenly. Sprinkle on the remainder of the cheese. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes or so or until a toothpick comes out cleanly. Serve with marinara sauce or naked (Tab said it was good as a solo act).
