Pepperoni Pizza!

I had been craving pepperoni pizza for a while now, but could never find gluten-free pepperoni when I remembered to look for it. Then I finally found some made by Piller’s. I used it to make this pepperoni, jalapeno and onion pizza.

To make it, I used the crust recipe I have been using for a few years now. I usually make it without the addition of the tiny amount of Parmesan as I tend to put generous amounts of cheese on top. It’s really fast to make, and it uses tapioca flour and coconut flour, so it’s grain free. The crust ends up being nice and thin–I roll it out between two sheets of parchment paper. It is delicate, and I leave it on the lower piece of parchment paper for baking. But if you are light on the sauce, the crust stays crisp enough that you can eat the pizza by hand.

This one was fantastic, of course, and let me have leftover pizza for breakfast. I highly recommend this crust to anyone looking for a yeast-free, gluten-free option to make at home.

Eggs Smothered in Jalapeno Cheese Sauce: Better than Eggs Benedict?

eggs-w-jalapeno-cheese-sauce

I think I may have found an amazing alternative to eggs Benedict. Don’t get me wrong. I am a big fan of eggs Benedict. Well, used to be. When I order it now, I always order it without the English muffin, of course, but it is not really the same and not nearly as filling. And just this past fall, I tried ordering it in one restaurant where, apparently, the “hollandaise sauce” was not gluten free. I ended up eating something else.

But I love eggs—scrambled, poached, fried—you name it. And, as I may have already mentioned once or twice, I love cheese. Recently, I had the happy accident of having too much jalapeno cheese sauce on hand. I had about a cup sitting in my fridge, needing a purpose, so I toasted a Glutino English muffin in my panini press, reheated my cheese sauce in the microwave and fried up two eggs over easy.

The result was this delicious combination of eggs, cheese sauce and jalapenos. I had it for dinner, but it would make a lovely company brunch dish, too.

Jalapeno Cheddar Sauce for Pasta

I love jalapenos. I first learned how to use a canner just so I could pickle my own peppers. I have grown my own plants a couple of times, too. One year, when I had a large garden, I ended up pickling 60 cups of peppers.
