Church potluck - we brought Artichoke-Spinach Dip Stuffed Mushrooms - and tragically, I forgot to take a picture! I will do them again, though.
I. Almond-Flour Crust
1 1/2 cups blanched almond flour
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 T. olive oil
Combine almond flour, baking soda and eggg in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and olive oil. Add wet ingredients to dry and combine thoroughly - this makes a dough with cookie dough consistency.
I found it easier to divide into two oblongs - four small circles would have been even better. Put dough between 2 sheets of parchment paper and roll out thin. Remove top paper and transfer the bottom paper, with the crust on it, to acookie sheet.
Bake 15-20 minutes at 350F. Remove from oven, add toppings, and put under broiler for a few minutes to heat toppings and melt cheese.
We used a lot of toppings - sauce, mozzerella, mushrooms, sausage, pepperoni, olives. Honestly, I should have patted this into a pie plate and just gone for a deep dish pizza pie. But even with all that heavy laoding, this crust stayed stiff and small portions held up to being picked up to eat.
Even at that, we still had leftover toppings, so the next night we tried version 2:
II. Pizza Potatoes
We very rarely eat potatoes - this is not low-carb, but it is grain-free, and sometimes potatoes are a real treat.
Poke scrubbed baking potatoes several times, and putin the oven at 375 for about an hour to bake. Poke to check for tenderness. When done, split open, and fluff it out to create a wide surface area. Spread with sauce and add desired cheese and toppings. Set under broiler for few minutes to heat toppings and melt cheese.

Finally, today is TUSAL Day - every New Moon, stitchy bloggers share join in the Totally Useless Stitch-along and show off our Ort Jars, where we collect the little snippets of threads we collect as we stitch. Here is mine, looking quite a bit more respectable than it's recently empty self:
The Pisces New Moon brings with it a good opportunity to spend some time with mystical and fantastical creative pursuits - listening to your inner voice and not being afraid of letting go of logic in favor of intuition and imagination. If there's something you've been longing to do, if only it weren't so impractical - take a step toward it today. It could lead somewhere wonderful and enchanted!
