Candied Tomato and Candied Bacon Pizza | Cravings of a Lunatic | #tomato #candiedtomato #bacon #candied bacon #pizza

This recipe is so over-the-top delicious it should be a sin. It's homemade pizza dough with some spice thrown in for some extra kick. Then the pizza is topped with mounds of cheese, as any good pizza should be. The real kicker is in the toppings. I made candied tomatoes to put on top. Seriously, you can candy tomatoes. If that wasn't enough pizazz for you, I also candied bacon for the final touch. This is one sinfully good pizza. I was thrilled when the California Tomato Farmers asked me if … [Read more...]

I'm so happy to be back with my Sunday Supper crew this week. I've been absent for about 3 or 4 weeks now. So I was thrilled to be able to participate and join my peeps this week.

While I'm not eating completely gluten-free, I do dabble with recipes. I'm gluten sensitive but don't have celiac. I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome which flares up on … [Read more...]

Guy Fieri’s Cherry Cobbler Pizza for Pass the Cook Book Club

Cherry Cobbler Pizza | Cravings of a Lunatic | #pizza #dessertpizza #dessert #chocolate #cherry

I should feel really bad about eating this decadent cherry dessert pizza. I should not be eating cherry pie pizza drizzled with chocolate when I'm suppose to be watching my diet. I really should feel guilty and bad about myself. But look at this freaking thing. Would you feel bad? I certainly don't. Not even after 3 slices... or 4... or even 5. Somewhere around slice #8 I started to think I should probably walk away with some dignity left. But then I figured there … [Read more...]
