(Pizza) Roll it UP!

I'm going to make a confession here: I love pizza. 

Really, I LOVE pizza! It's just so yummy!

Recently, we've been buying whole wheat pizza dough at the grocery store and experimenting with making our own 'homemade' pizzas.

While looking for ideas, I came across this idea for making a pull-apart pizza. So cool!  Here's the basics:

Roll out the dough into the shape of a pie plate that has been lightly brushed with olive oil.
Add yummies! 

Roll it up and slice, then place rolls into the pie plate.
Magically, it all fits!

Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes. Enjoy! 

I couldn't believe how easy it was, and how fast we gobbled it all up! I used jarred pizza sauce, ham and shredded mozzarella in mine, but you can add whatever cheese / toppings are your favorite. Roll it up!

Two Minute Upcycle

Recently I got together with some friends for a night out and a clothing swap. A cute blue and white striped top caught my eye, not for the shirt, but for the fabric.  I was able to turn it into a fun skirt:

Don't mind my modeling! 

This upcycle took two minutes to make, literally. I was lucky enough to find a shirt that had an elastic empire waist, so all I did was cut the top part off. It was super easy and now I have a fun, comfy skirt to wear! Wahoo!

Update: I recently remade this skirt, adding fresh elastic for the waistband and taking it in considerably on the sides for a more fitted, a-line look. And I still love it!
