That sounds interesting. Can you share the recipe?

Tried a new low-carb pizza recipe tonight. Best one I've had yet, and the first I've had that passes the pick-it-up-with-your-hand test. The only thing I would do differently next time is to run it under the broiler for a few minutes before removing from the oven. I won't say it was perfect, but compared to some of the poor excuses for pizza I've had over the last year, it was pretty darned good.

Delicious looking dinners, kgirl and Steve!

Like Dawg, I'm trying to use whatever I can from the freezer to make room for Thanksgiving goodies.

I took a hunk of rare vacuum sealed tri tip out of the freezer this morning - not sure yet how it's going to be dinner. I'm kind of craving it on a Hoagie roll with a horseradish/mayo blend, and an assortment of pickles on the side.

To warm us up on a cool, rainy day, I'm making pasta e fagioli again (Italian pasta, sausage and vegetable soup) with garlic twisty bread and fricos for garnish (baked crispy Parmigiano Reggiano cheese).

Steve would you be so kind to post your recipe? I'm really struggling right now and could sure use it!!

Here's the original recipe (which I have no idea where it came from), which I first made sometime in the last millennium. I use EVOO instead of butter, and cut up onion instead of the boiling onions. I just multiplied everything by four tonight. My wife loves this stuff, as it's comfort food (unlike a lot of other things I make).

1 lb. stew meat
2 Tbsp. flour
1-1/2 Tbsp. butter
6 small white boiling onions
2 carrots, cut in 1" pieces
1/4 cup catsup
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1-1/2 tsp. worcestershire
1/2 cup water

egg noodles (cooked)

- dredge meat in flour, brown in butter
- combine catsup, sugar, vinegar, worcestershire, water, add to meat
- add onions, carrots, simmer (covered) for 2 hours
- serve over egg noodles, sprinkle with parsley
(serves 2)

Hi Kayelle, I can't take credit for it, but here is the recipe.
Low Carb Pepperoni Pizza | Ruled Me

I do use my own San Marzano pizza sauce, which, come to think of it, isn't really a recipe, either. I always sort of make it up as I go. Basically, it's just pureed SM tomatoes with basil, oregano, rosemary, ground fennel seed, and garlic.
