Friday is Pizza Night


Hoy cada quien se prepara su propia pizza.
Tenemos varias opciones de cómo hacer la pizza:

  • Vegana  o  Omnívora
  • Sin caseína, usando queso de arroz o tofu - o con  caseína, usando quesos de leche de cabra o vaca. 

On Fridays we have different pizza options for the entire family.
Have each one at home prepare their own pizza.

May it be:

  • A vegan or omnivore version
  • A casein-milk free (using rice cheese or tofu) or with cow or goat cheese. 

Its very easy :

  • Then, I preheat oven to 500 . Baked crust for 4-5 minutes. Remove from oven and added .
  • tomato sauce    

    Then I added  (Añadí los ingredientes)

  • olives  (Aceitunas)
  • onions(Cebollas blancas )
  • green peppers (Pimientos verdes )
  • cheese (use rice cheese for vegan version or cow or goat mozzarella cheese for omnivore version)(Queso [usé queso de arroz para una receta vegana y queso de cabra o vaca para una omnivora])
  • Then I added
Prosciutto ham. Exclude for vegan version.
  •  Añadí Jamón Serano. (Ignore éste paso para una pizza vegana).
  •  Then I reduced  oven temperature to 425 and baked it  for 8-10 minutes.
    (Horneé la pizza por 8-10 minutos a 425 grados.)
It came out beautiful and  Delicious ! 
Simplemente deliciosa ... ¡Los viernes comemos pizza!  ¡Claro que sí!

Gluten-free shortcuts or Trampitas sin gluten.

We’ve all had those days when we crave some “normal food” and we want to give up and deal with the consequences later.

Well the good thing is that there is a middle ground. We can have fast and easy-to-prepare food, while we are still being gluten-free and low fat.

Here is what I just did today . I bought a Betty Crocker Gluten-Free Cake Mix. But I changed it a bit.
Yes , you heard it right. Betty Crocker has gluten-free mixes and they sponsor the Celiac Disease Fondation ! 

The original recipe called for 1/3 cup of water, 1 stick of butter, 2 teaspoons of gluten-free vanilla and three eggs.
Instead,  I used:

  • 1 cup of water
  • 6 ounces of fat free plain yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla
  • 1 cup of white eggs (Kirkland Real Egg)

  • Since I was going to use a shared convection oven, I wrapped it tight with some foil and baked it .
  • Remember there are plenty egg-substitute options. Including vegan options. If you have problems calculating how much you need to use this sheet might be useful. 

Now , if you will please excuse me ... There is a delicious cake awaiting me :)
