Coconut Flour Pizza Crust

 

Ingredients:

¾ cup coconut flour

½ cup coconut oil

6 eggs

1 teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon garlic powder

 

Directions: 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 

Place all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix with hand mixer until there are no lumps. 

On a parchment-lined cookie sheet, spread out the dough in 4 – 5 inch circles using the back of a spoon. 

Bake for 10 minutes, flip, and bake another 5 to 10 minutes.

Add your choice of sauce, cheese, and toppings and pop back in the oven for another 5 minutes. 

Let cool slightly, cut, and serve.

 

 

Meatloaf

 

Ingredients:

2 lbs ground beef (or turkey or pork)

3 eggs

6 – 8 slices of bacon chopped

1 cup sautéed mushrooms, Vidalia onion, green pepper

4 cloves garlic – chopped and sautéed

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper

½ cup of raw cheese of choice – grated

 

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Fry the chopped bacon.

Remove bacon from pan – keep the bacon fat in the pan for the sautéed veggies.

Add sliced cremini mushrooms, diced Vidalia onion, green pepper, and chopped garlic to pan (add more or less of any of these depending on your preference) and sautee. Set aside.

I use my food processor to chop and slice all the veggies and then pour directly into the sautee pan.

Once the bacon and veggies have cooled, combine and mix with the remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

Place in baking dishes and bake for about an hour or until done (until no longer pink inside).

I check mine after 30 minutes and turn the pan every 15 minutes after that until done.

 

The meatloaf can be topped with tomato sauce, BBQ sauce, or Ketchup before baking, but it is not necessary.  It is very moist and flavorful without it.

 

This recipe can also be used to make meatballs.  Set oven to 400 degrees and bake 25 – 30 minutes
