A few nights ago, my hubby picked up one of those amazing Chicago deep dish pizzas for dinner. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel jealous. Lord knows, even one bite would have sent me into a serious health crisis. I mean, gluten, dairy, and nightshades are basically what make up this amazing pizza pie. That would not have worked for me at all. So, I went to the kitchen, and cooked up my own amazing pizza pie, Bacon Spinach AIPizza with Arugula Pesto.
I wanted to try to improve upon my previously created AIPizza crust, so I added a couple of gelatin eggs and used cauliflower instead of plantains. The texture was a bit fluffier; but, the flavor was just not as good as the original recipe. I’m going to stick with the original recipe in the future.
Also, I craved a different taste than my AIPizza tomato-less sauce. I created this Arugula Pesto instead. That gave it a wonderful flavor that mingled well with the bacon and spinach. After taking a bite, I wasn’t so jealous of my hubby’s pizza.
Now, I know it’s not so easy for some of you to pass on foods that are not good for you. And, some people just don’t have the time to tinker around in the kitchen. That’s why I try to do the tinkering for you. I want to give you wonderfully tasty recipes that are AIP compliant. Hopefully, this makes it easier for you to pass on foods that may not be beneficial to your healing. I think you’ll really enjoy this AIPizza.
As always, I wish you good health………and, good food!
