Pesto Humus Pizza

19 Sep

I never heard of pesto humus either.

I was in Stop and Shop just wandering around getting a couple of things and I found this.

Should I get it , shouldn’t I get it?

Well I did.

When I got home I tasted it and loved it.

Now what do I do with it?

Pizza was my first choice.

Roll out 8 ounces of pizza dough nice and thin.

Place it on a Crisco greased  pan

Spread half a container of the pesto humus on the dough.

Put 8 chopped sun-dried tomatoes on the humus.

Place 1/2 chopped red onion as your next layer

Fry one small package of mushrooms in two tablespoons oil.

Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and red pepper.

Top with three or four big handfuls of shredded mozzarella cheese.

Bake in a 475 degree oven for 10 minutes or until the bottom crust is crisp and brown.

This was really easy and delicious.

Next time I may add artichokes, olives and feta cheese.

Dairy Free Brownie Cookies

4 Sep

unnamed

I found another recipe for my grandchild who is allergic to dairy.

I’m so happy because he loves chocolate.

3 cups powdered sugar

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 teaspoon kosher salt. Only use kosher salt or else it will be too salty.

2 egg whites

One whole egg

8 ounces of dairy free chocolate morsels

Sift the sugar, cocoa and salt together.

Set aside.

Beat the egg whites until they are whiter but not stiff.

Add the whole egg and mix  into the whites

Add the dry ingredients and mix well.

It forms a pretty, silky chocolate batter.

Add the chips and fold them into the batter.

Drop one full tablespoon on a baking pan coated with parchment paper or a Silpak.

Place the cookies at least two inches apart.

Bake at 350 degrees for 14 minutes.

I did not grease the baking pan but when I made my second batch I did spray the silpak just a little.

These cookies only have the fat from the dairy free chips so they do stick a little.

Wait till they are cool before removing them from the pan.

The cookie is chewy and delicious.
