Food for Good Thought Pizza Crust Mix - Make Your Own Gluten-Free Pizza Dough [Coupon Inside!] [My Review]


I had the chance to try out a pizza dough mix by Food for Good Thought (and sold by this great company bTizzy, which sells product made by people with disabilities). And I was intrigued by doing this, because I'm usually going out to buy pre-made crusts that are frozen so I was really eager to try something that had more of a homemade flavor to it.

I went out and purchased the few ingredients needed (not many at all - cider vinegar, olive oil (which I always have on hand), dry active yeast (found some that was gluten-free) and of course, water. 


When I started making the pizza crust, I made a tiny error in the first batch - I didn't follow the water amount directions! I added a cup of water, the directions called for 1 and 1/3. But it turns out, my accident, made the crust a consistency that I could more easily work with. The second time around I though the dough was a bit too liquidy and sticky.

But here's a premiere of how things went on that first batch -


You wait for a few minutes (about ten) and soon the pizza is ready to roll out for a dough. I didn't have a pizza pan to make this so I did what I could with a cookie sheet. I was pretty proud of myself for how this turned out. Check it out!


Then I put the crust in the oven for about ten minutes. Um, I ended up overcooking it JUST a tad (my fault, it became more like fifteen minutes instead ten) but overall, check it out -


And here's the near end result -


Check it out! It totally looks like a pizza! What I liked about this is that it wasn't a messy involved process and it was fairly easy to make. I did it on a Saturday night when I knew I would have the time and energy.

Plus, I think the dough turned out to taste great. I loved the rosemary flavor and the nutty quality that the garbanzo beans gave the dough (it's made with garbanzo bean flour!). I think this was one of the more better tasting pizza crusts I have had in a while. In terms of the process of making it, I think I need more practice. Ha! But I am interested to try again (maybe with a pizza pan and different pizza sauce!) and see how things turn out.

Again I would recommend not adding as much water as mentioned in the directions (maybe a bit more than a cup of water but not so much a cup and a 1/3). My second pizza I didn't photograph because it was a little...odd looking.  But I can't wait to try this again and I highly recommend purchasing it today at bTizzy by visiting this link. Best of all, you can use my discount code for 15% off - UFANCY15

Special thank you to bTizzy for letting me try out this pizza dough. I received the above product in exchange for my honest review.

Vitamin C Serum - Add This To Your Morning Beauty Routine [Review and Giveaway]

What is your morning (or evening) beauty routine? For me, I'm usually so tired at night that if I remember to wash my face, it's an enormous deal. But in the morning, I pay so much more attention to my skin. I always put on coconut oil of some kind, but lately, I've been adding a new addition to my routine - Vitamin C Serum.

I've heard about the benefits of using a Vitamin C Serum for a while now and jumped at the chance to try it out and see the kind of impact this had on my skin.

I have been using the Amara Organics Vitamins C Serum 20% (with Vitamin E and Hydraulic Acid) Serum for a couple of weeks now. One thing that stood out to me was how gentle this was on my skin. It wasn't harsh at all. I use it daily each morning and follow it up with  a moisturizer.

Vitamin C Serum is supposed to reduce signs of aging. I'm only 28 so I'm not sure that I have a lot of evidence of aging to worry about just yet. This is also supposed to brighten skin, repair damage…

The Best Gluten-Free Soup I've Had in a Long Time (And Giveaway]

​​​​​​​​ Since I've been gluten-free it isn't always to figure out easy lunch solutions. I'm not a huge fan of frozen options and I really don't think I've found the perfect, consistently amazing lunch time bread. And soups? Well, I haven't found my favorite soups yet either. Until now.
So I had the chance to try out Blount's Soups! I tried two different kinds - 
Tomato Bisque

Broccoli Cheddar



Here's what I thought:
The Good:
Theses soups are non-gmo, organic, and gluten-free. First, the tomato bisque. I found this tasted so good. I like when Tomato Soup is on the creamy side. And this was! I'm never a fan when tomato soup has more of a ketchupy, liquidy tomato flavor. But when it really tastes like a soup? Oh yum! 
For the Broccoli Cheddar, it may not have been as thick and creamy and cheesy as I usually love about Broccoli Cheddar, it was still really tasty. I just needed a bit more salt. 
The Not so Good
You know, not like I'm trying to avoid a…

Why You Should Buy Organic Coffee [and Giveaway]

I'm always on the organic route when I go into a grocery store, but I have only just recently heard that we really should be drinking organic coffee. I never really thought of this before and didn't realize the importance of choosing organic coffee until now.

One major reasons to drink organic coffee?

You avoid a good majority of the pesticides.

This is the main reason I choose organic produce. Did you know that coffee is known to be one of the most heavily sprayed crops? While many argue the roasting process eliminates the pesticide residue, this still doesn't leave warm feelings in my coffee pot about what the coffee bean could entail. (SOURCE)

It's also environmentally beneficial. Many conventional growers will clear out forests to make room for their crops. This eliminates natural pest killers like birds and other creatures and this leads to more pesticide use. Organic coffee is grown more naturally, maintaining the forest life in the surrounding area.
