The best easy Pizza Crust EVER!


I have a confession……..

I love pizza, but I have not had any “real” pizza in a very long time.

I tried Gwen’s sour dough  a time or two… but I would forget about it in the fridge and it wasted..

yes…. I am very bad…

but when a  I seen  One Degree had sprouted Wheat flour and Sprouted Spelt flour

I knew I needed to try it…


Wow!  I love this stuff!  Best of all,  my tummy seems to be able  to handle this very well.

I am trilled!


My picky eater has approved this as REAL PIZZA…. it’s a win in my book!

This Pizza Crust is an E for all my THM’s.


I make a crossover meat lover pizza with it…


Pizza Crust

(makes two 12 inch crust)


1 pkg yeast ( fast rising or regular)

1 1/2 cups of  sprouted spelt flour

1 1/2 cup of sprouted whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon sea salt

1 cup warm water

2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil


Warm water in a sauce pan or microwave until its very warm but not too hot to touch.  Combine 1 cup flour (either one) and your yeast into a bowl.  Combine your water and oil to your yeast and flour… mix well with a hand mixer or with a spoon.

Continue to add  enough of the remaining flours to make a firm dough.  Knead  on a floured surface until its smooth and elastic…. adding more flour it needed. 


Let the dough rest 15 to 20 mins.  Divide into 2 parts.  Roll dough out into a round  circle, place on parchment paper (on a cookie sheet).  

Pre Bake at  400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes until the edges of the crust are lightly brown.

Remove and  add your desired sauce, cheeses, and meat.


* For an E Pizza~ use fat free cheese and Turkey bacon or low fat meats. *


Place back in oven and bake an additional 15 minutes.

Gearing up for a Fuel Cycle

As the New Year approaches, many ladies are gearing up for the New Year’s Fuel Cycle.   The Fuel Cycle ladies are my buddies.  We love to share our menus and meal ideas with our fellow FCer’s.  One tip I share with other ladies is that planning is the key to a successful Fuel Cycle.   I love List!  Yes, I can be a little OCD with them.. but they have kept me sane during busy times.   When I plan a menu, I don’t have to worry what I am going to cook after a busy day.  Here is my menu for the first week of my Fuel Cycle. You can find most of these recipes in the Trim Healthy Mama book.  Some are my own.
