Testimony of the Day
Phone Client Testimony: “Maria, Today is my 50th birthday and I feel AMAZING since I had a phone consult with you! I have lost 15# I have incredible energy, I sleep through the night for the first time in years,and I’m no longer hungry all the time. I can’t say enough about you, your books amazing recipes and all the support you offer.
As you know I have tried so many plans and have been a chronic dieter since age 13. This all makes sense and its a life time change that is so easy to do. Thank you again for all that you do to make people healthy.
P.S I plan to celebrate my birthday today by taking a 50 mile bike ride, I just had knee surgery 4 weeks ago and healed so well. This too has to do with the way I feel. Thanks Mary”
PIZZA POT PIE
I was watching the Food Network show, “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” and I was inspired by a dish one of the chef’s mentioned. It was a Pizza Pot Pie he found in Chicago.
When he described how she made it I thought…”Hey, I can make that ‘healthified’!”
My husband always teases me that when I get an idea in my head I can’t wait; I must make it ASAP. Even if I just cleaned the kitchen. But to me it is fun, I love cooking and when you create something as tasty as this, the mess is totally worth it!
Kai loved this dish so much he had 2 for dinner!
FAMILY TIP: These are fun to make with the family! I let my kids pick what fillings they wanted.
These also make tasty leftovers!
- 1 recipe Toasted Sub Bread (click here for recipe and to see video)
- 10 slices cheese (provalone/munster), presliced
- PIZZA FILLINGS:
- Sauteed mushrooms
- Italian sausage, cooked
- Sliced Olives
- Diced onion
- 2 cups marinara/pizza sauce
- Freshly chopped parsley
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium sized bowl, combine the almond flour, psyllium powder (no substitutes: flaxseed meal won’t work), baking powder and salt. Mix until dry ingredients are well combined. Add in the eggs and vinegar and mix until a thick dough. Add boiling water or marinara into the bowl. Mix until well combined and dough firms up.
- Form into 5 balls and set aside.
- Grease 5 ramekins. Place 2 slices of cheese on the bottom of each ramekin to cover completely. Add your desired pizza toppings to fill to the top of the ramekin.
- Pour pizza sauce on the toppings.
- Take one ball of dough and flatten with your hand or a rolling pin and roll out to cover the top of the ramekin making sure it overlaps the greased lip of the ramekin.
- Bake for 20-30 minutes or until the dough is completely cooked through.
- Remove from oven, invert onto a plate. Remove ramekin, garnish with herbs if desired and enjoy!
