Halloween Candy Brownie Pizza

Halloween Candy Brownie Pizza – Gluten-Free – RECIPE

Halloween has come and go and now you probably have a gigantic bowl of Halloween candy. Am I right? Are you wondering what you can do with it? I had the most excellent idea to create a leftover Halloween candy pizza with some white chocolate “cheese” drizzled on top. I used Pamela’s Products gluten-free brownie mix to create this sensational, sinful dessert. Creating your very own leftover Halloween candy brownie pizza is simple to do and it will satisfy all of the chocolate candy lovers in your family.

If you are a regular follower of my blog then you will know my philosophy of eating:

Eat healthy so you can have dessert!

I eat primarily healthy most of the time. We try to eat as paleo as possible and feel that this diet benefits me the most. I also feel as though I do not want to deprive myself of the fun things in life so I do occasionally devour some sweets that are not on the spectrum of a Halloween diet. Halloween might bring out the worst in me. My daughter, Chloe, received quite a bit of loot this year and it sits in a big black cauldron. The temptation is always there to eat, eat, eat candy. It’s hard to resist and I give in and indulge often. No regrets here though. I know I will get back on track soon after the holidays are over.

Pamela’s Products Gluten Free Chocolate Brownie Mix

For my Halloween Candy Brownie Pizza, I went with Pamela’s Products Gluten-Free Brownie Mix. There were a few different brownie recipes on the back of the package and I went with the butter recipe and I used my 4th & Heart ghee in place of regular butter. The ghee gives it an incredible richness and makes for one excellent tasting brownie. This mix from Pamela’s Products results in a perfect batch of decadent, fudgy brownies that does not disappoint.

Using up all of that delicious Halloween Candy

If you are following a gluten-free diet, be sure to check those labels. Items like Kit Kats are not gluten-free and you will want to avoid using candies like that as a topping. M&M’s, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, and Snickers bars go great as brownie pizza toppings. I especially love topping this pizza with M&M’s because of the color that they give off.

Final thoughts

This was simple and easy to do. My daughter also enjoyed helping out with the toppings! You can have your whole family join in with the topping of the Halloween Candy Brownie Pizza. This brought pure joy to us when we chowed down on it. We were all ooo’ing’ and ahhh’ing. It is best served warm and topped with some ice-cream. We used Halo Top’s Candy Bar ice-cream.

Garlicky Greek Caulipower Pizza Recipe

Greek Caulipower Pizza With Primal Kitchen – Recipe (Gluten-Free)

If you are not a fan of garlic it might just be time to walk away from this post. Today I will tell you how I created a Garlicky Greek Caulipower Pizza using a blank crust from Caulipower and some Primal Kitchen Greek Vinaigrette. You can adjust this recipe to your taste with the garlic but the amount that is noted in here is for garlic lovers only. This is believe it or not, my first time ever having a Greek pizza. I love Greek food so I kind of had an idea in my mind that everything would turn out wonderful to me. Guess what? I nailed it and that is why I am sharing this recipe to you for my Greek Caulipower Pizza! This pizza does not contain any meat so it a vegetarian pizza and would be perfect for any veggie lover.

Caulipower Crust – The Greek Pizza All Starts Here

If you are looking at my post and my photos here and are drooling a bit and craving this Greek Caulipower Pizza then you are going to need your base to start with. This was my second time trying the Caulipower crust. I bought a veggie Caulipower pizza not too long ago and dressed it up with some additional toppings. This time I wanted to be the artist and the chef and create my own on a blank slate. The blank Caulipower crust pack contains two crusts and if you want you can double this recipe so that you have two Greek Caulipower Pizzas. The recipe has enough servings and slices for two people. That is of course unless you have a huge appetite and can eat an entire pizza by yourself.

The Power Of The Caulipower

Let’s talk a bit about why I love this Caulipower crust so much.

First of all, it is paleo friendly. If you do not add any cheese this pizza will fulfill your paleo diet needs.

Secondly, we all know that cauliflower crust is all the rage these days because it is low-carb. A cauliflower crust pizza is leaning in the guilt-free direction of things. You can take a peek at the nutrition facts below (source). A serving size is considered 1/3 of the pizza and considering this is pizza it only comes in at 17 grams of carbs. A regular pizza is at least twice that amount and averages about 36 grams of carbs for just one slice (source)!

And third, this Caulipower crust is nice and crisp! Often times a cauliflower crust can result in sogginess from the moisture that can be found in cauliflower. If you ever make your own crust you really have to squeeze the moisture out. I made my own cauliflower crust last year and while it was good, the texture of it was mushy. I did not get enough of the moisture out. Caulipower takes the frustration out of cauliflower crust. These blank crusts have endless possibilities.

Garlic. Garlic. And More Garlic!

There. I said it three times so you get the point. This Greek Caulipower Pizza recipe is chockful of garlic. I put three heaping tablespoons of it in the blender with my Primal Kitchen Greek Vinaigrette. When I need minced garlic I skip the knifework and I grab my Spice World Minced Garlic. My knife skills suck if I am going to be honest here and minced garlic can be tricky. I really need to improve in the knife department. Spice World does all of the work for you and they are my go-to brand. They do also have an organic minced garlic available and I often try to use that but my Kroger was out the last time I shopped so I just went with regular.

Bring On The Cheese Please

A Greek Caulipower Pizza would not be Greek if it weren’t for the feta cheese! No Greek pizza is complete without feta. For this recipe, I went with a blend of feta and a mozzarella. I used one small container of Kroger’s Simple Truth Feta Cheese and I used a handful of Tillamook mozzarella, which is my favorite shredded mozzarella cheese.

Greek Toppings

For the rest of the toppings on this Greek Caulipower Pizza, I used cherry tomatoes, sliced kalamata olives, pepperoncinis, and half of a slivered and sliced shallot. Next time I make a Greek pizza I am going to add some sliced beets to it. I think beets would have been awesome on this pizza, so now you know! You might just want to add them to yours.
