Smoked Macaroni & Cheese with Broccoli

INGREDIENTS:Smoked Macaroni & Cheese

cheese sauce, as desired
smoked paprika

DIRECTIONS:
Boil water and cook pasta as directed. Steam broccoli as desired. Drain pasta and pour back into the cooking pot. Add broccoli and cheese sauce. Stir. Add smoked paprika as desired.

Veggie Pizza

INGREDIENTS:
1 bag of Bob’s Red Mill Whole Wheat Gluten Free Pizza Crust
Tomato sauce (see spaghetti for sauce recipe)
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 cups spinach, chopped
1 zucchini, halved and sliced
2 cups broccoli, chopped
2 cups mushrooms, sliced and halved
2 tomatoes
cheese (optional, I used non-dairy Daiya)

DIRECTIONS:
Preheat the over to 425 degrees. In a bowl prepare the pizza crust flour as directed. After the dough is done rising roll it out on a pizza pan. I used a cookie sheet, which made for a nice 1/2 thick crust when baked.

Cover pizza dough with tomato sauce and top with a thin layer of cheese. Add red pepper, zucchini, mushrooms, onion, spinach and top with tomato. Bake in the over for 15-17 minutes.
