Baked Cauliflower & Broccoli Falafel

I’ll be honest. I’m not up for writing today. A bit stressed out. But out of all the things, one of the hardest things I’ve gone through is I crave for some food and can’t share how great it is with Mad Scientist because he has different food allergies than I do. Taking a photo of a dish and trying to explain the taste is one thing. It’s a good conversation topic. Experiencing “it” is completely another story. So do I think this is a problem or struggle? No, the world won’t fall apart because of that. I like the challenges, the processes, and the opportunities. I just need a bit of time and creativity so that we can both enjoy. Sharing is caring, they say.

caramelized onion & prosciutto gluten free pizza

Try the topping with a slice of bread or pita and toast it for a couple of minutes. Good snack or appetizer if you’re looking for small portion food. Alternatively, you can even use a sheet of pie crust.

I admit that I’m not much of a pizza person. I grew up with “enough” of them, but never was my favorite. What it comes down to is the pizza sauce I’m not good with and it’s not the pizza itself. I’m just picky. I’m also the type of person that would drive 10-15 miles to get a slice from a place I know of just because they have a fantastic Cesar Salad Pizza. Their crust is thin, crunchy, and the dressing is out of this world. I get this insane craving of having a good slice once in a while but I don’t have the luxury to take that drive as much as I used to.

So when I’ve had the pizza stuck on my mind most of the day, I was in on a good fight for making it gluten-free. I usually go for the Gluten-Free Girl’s Pizza crust (with some adjustments). Minor problem… I haven’t replaced all flours that I lost. When I googled “gluten free pizza crust recipe” for the sake of searching, there are about 1, 180,000 search results returned. Yes, over 1 million results. Ah, ok, I have time. (rolling eyes)

I said yes when Mad Scientist asked me if I wanted very ripe bananas. Don’t ask where he got them, but my gain. And there I was, staring at the ingredients again. I don’t know why I do this but I think I’m trying to let them tell me what they want to be. The vibe was… banana bread, again.
