Ingredients

For the Crust

  • 1 Egg
  • 3 Cups Mozzarella
  • 3 Cups Almond flour
  • 1/4 Tsp Baking soda
  • 4 Ounces Cream cheese

For the filling

  • 1/2 Cup Marinara
  • 1/2 Cup Mozzarella
  • Pepperonis
  • Italian sausage
  • Fresh basil

Instructions

Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.

  2. In a large microwave safe bowl, combine 3 cups mozzarella and 4 ounces cream cheese. Slice the cream cheese. Microwave about 2 minutes.

  3. Remove and mix with a fork. Add the egg and stir until the egg combines (which may take some work).

  4. Add baking soda and almond flour and work into the dough. After a while it may be easier to knead with your hands.

  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place dough on sheet and cover with a second piece of parchment paper.

  6. Roll dough flat until it covers the entire baking sheet. Cut in half both ways, then cut those in half again. You should have 8 pieces. Score with a fork.

Filling

  1. Place pepperoni, sausage, cheese, sauce, and basil in the center of each piece. Leave enough room to wrap the dough around.

  2. Wrap the filling with dough and press into place. 

  3. Bake at 400° For about 30 minutes or until dough is a golden brown. Note: mine is NOT golden brown here.

Sensory Ice

Sensory Ice

Boy, it’s hot! The girls seem irritated that I’m so concerned with keeping them from getting sunburn and heatstroke and bored with sitting in the air conditioning, so I thought this back patio activity might help alleviate the boredom.

Rainbow Ice

Supplies:

Ice tray

Toothpick

Food coloring

Water

 

Steps:

1. Fill trays with water.

2. Mix food coloring in your ice cube tray to desired colors. I only had gel food coloring, so I put a small amount on the toothpick and mixed it.

3. Freeze and save for a hot day.

 

Flower Ice

Supplies:

Ice tray

Fresh or dried flowers

Water

 

Supplies:

1. Fill tray with water.

2. Press flower heads into the water, submerging completely. Make sure these flowers are non-toxic, just in case.

3. Freeze. These will be fun for your little one to play with later! Obviously you don’t have to use flowers, I just used what we had from Mother’s day.
