Wowzers. This has been a week.
Let’s talk about pizza.
Favourite. Ever. Right. I mean I am Italian, so after my mom’s lasagne (which I am having in like 3 weeks — after my (disappointingly result-lacking) 8 week uber-strict regime is over — exxxccciiitttttteeeeddddddddd) uh. Where was I? Lasagne. Lasagne.. Pizza! OH. hehe. OK so Pizza is pretty high up there (along with the lasange – in case anyone forgot.) But obviously, pizza is super unhealthy and full of grains and gluten and all that jazz. So this recipe (based on a million Pinterest pins floating around the web) is a healthy version :)
Except for the cheese. But you could go foccacia style (as a new paleo friend pointed out) and put tomato base with some parma ham and rocket or something – which would ALSO change some lives.
But on this particular day (more than 7 weeks ago – can you believe it) I ate the cheese. I ate all the cheese.
