Okay – I’ve been out of the loop lately with the D-OC (diabetic online community) – summer is here – so I try to get away from the screen that wants to lure me away from the real life outside (remember summer is over with a blink of the eye here in Canada).  Anyway, I’ve been reading other PWD’s (people with diabetes) blog posts – that are plugging away #DFeast (thanks for correction from AmariT) in Twitter.  Take for instance, George Simmons aka Ninjabetic and his yummy burger aka Ninja Burger recipe (hope to sink my teeth into these this weekend with some friends we’re visiting in Seneca Falls, NY). 

UPDATE:  To participate - go to This Is Caleb - and the instructions on how to participate are all there.  It's that easy!  You can also click the picture above to add your recipe to the D-Feast Friday list. Put the name of your recipe in the "Your Name" box and the URL of your blog post in the "Your URL" box.

The recipe I made last night, uses a flatbread which I’ve never bought/used before in my life (I know, I know, I live in a cave).  I discovered this great low carb bread here at Diabetes1.org where “someone” was posting a product from their company.  I have no problems with their promoting their product, but after doing research, I realized it’s only available online and/or around certain areas of the USA – not all over their country (and sadly – not here in Canada – the Mounties refuse to let their product into our country?).  Instead I found another product that's available ALL across the USA, and I posted it a few days ago here).

I’ve had a few people asking for the recipe since posting the picture in Twitter/Facebook – drum roll – here it is – I did use the Flatout Flatbreads pizza recipe they have online – but I spiffed it up like I always do with a recipe.  You can either follow theirs or mine – but I’m living proof that it works and tastes good using my own version! So, scroll down below the picture (warning - do not lick screen) to find out how to make this easy pizza!

 

 

 

1 Flatout Flatbread (or whatever is similar for “rolling”)

½ tomato diced (I used Roma)

½ Tbs chopped basil (or more which is what I did)

1 Tbs balsamic vinaigrette (I used Kraft Fig Balsamic Olive Oil)

1 tsp of minced garlic (or to your taste preference)

3 oz. part-skim mozzarella – cut into 1-inch cubes)

1 Tbs of your fav tomato sauce (I use a Puttanesca Sauce from Allrecipes.com)

8 Kalamata olives – remove pits and slice up

Preheat outdoor grill to Medium heat. Marinate mozzarella, tomato, garlic and basil in bowl with Balsamic Vinaigrette for about 10 minutes (I did it for about ½ an hour).  Lightly oil both sides of flatbread – place directly on grill for no more then 3 minutes.  Remove, and spread tomato sauce, marinated mixture, top with olives.  Place your piece of artwork directly back onto grill for 4 minutes (watch carefully) with lid closed.  Remove and gobble up.

You can also cook this in your oven:  Preheat oven to 350F, place lightly oiled flatbread directly on grate for 4-6 minutes.  Take out of oven, and then arrange toppings as above.  Remove to oven and cook for 5-7 minutes – or until cheese has melted to your satisfaction.  Remove and enjoy!

Best served up with a side salad – and like George – a beverage of your choice is best enjoyed while preparing / consuming meal.  I had a glass of Bottle Shock – Bloc E Signature from Julia Wine during the preparation of the above meal.

Bon appetite!! (in Julia Child style)
