The Recipe Box

‘GAPS-Legal’ (and no carb) Pizza Crust

picture from accidentalmommies.com


Thank you, thank you to one of our readers who found this recipe on this blog and sent us the link!  It is *so* yummy!  You usually have to use a fork to eat it, but we’ve never heard anyone complain!!!

p.s. Just so you know, if you are also on GAPS, cream cheese isn’t technically on the ‘Full GAPS’ list, but we’ve went ahead and had it with our pizza.


1 pkg. cream cheese

2 eggs

freshly ground black pepper

garlic powder

1/4 c. parmesan cheese


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Butter a 9×13 baking dish
  • Blend cream cheese and eggs and season with pepper & garlic powder
  • Add parmesan cheese and stir until combined
  • Pour into buttered baking dish
  • Bake for 17 minutes or until golden brown
  • Let crust cool for 10 minutes before adding toppings

After crust is cooked, raise oven to 400°F.  Top with pizza sauce (see below) and all your favorite toppings before popping it back into the oven for about 8 minutes or until your toppings are nice and hot (and cheese is melted if you have cheese on top!)

Some of our favorite toppings are:

  • sausage
  • bacon
  • hamburger
  • tomatoes
  • green peppers
  • onions
  • cheese (sometimes)


Pizza Sauce

32 oz. tomato sauce

2 t. oregano

2 t. basil

1/2  c. chopped onion or 2 T. onion flakes

2 T. honey (opt.)

2 T. apple cider vinegar

2 t. olive oil

Mix all together.  Can heat up if desired, but not necessary.

Cute Quotes

from the past

Dec. 12, 2008

Bekah spilled some salad and exclaimed, “Why was I so selfish?”  (she meant ‘naughty’)  😉


A little mixed up…

Sept. 12, 2007

Susannah: “Guess what I have stuck in my head?”

Cassia: ” I don’t know.”

Susannah: “A brother is born…”

Cassia: “….for advertising!!!”

Susannah: “No!  University!”


“A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity” Prov. 17:17

a big plum

Aug. 15, 2007

Earlier in the afternoon, Charissa ate a plum with Leah and Bekah. Then later that night she saw a watermelon in the pantry that was rounder and darker than the ones we usually get.

“Whoa!” she exclaimed, “is that a big plum or what?!!”

    ROFLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆

    I agree, WordPress (which powers Homeschoolblogger) is a weapon of distraction. School seems so boring now that I have an HSB account. 😉

    I adore the cute quotes!!! That mix-up about Proverbs 17:17 is SO FUNNY! 😆

      Hehe! You should see how many times we check for comments, etc…’tis ridiculous at times, lol!

    I laughed through almost the entire thing! I loved that cartoon about the grandma knitting with her chopsticks! I’m a knitter so that made the joke even funnier! My family is definitely going to have to try that pizza recipe. My sister loves pizza (hopefully she will like this one 😛 )! The books looks like it would be great! Unfortunately my mom doesn’t want to get an etsy account right now (for either of us). 🙁
    A brother is born for… Advertising! That’s hilarious! Do you do stuff like that often? 😉 In our family that seems to happen all the time. 😀

      Lol! Yes, we do turn our words around all the time 😀 It’s hilarious! Once Cassia mis-read a recipe on a Town-House cracker box and thought the dip called for chopped stallions 😯 Really, though, it was scallions lol!
