Foodie Friday, 2 in 1!!

So last week my foodie Friday team all posted about their Thanksgiving tradition foods!  I wrote a post and I never published it!  OOPS! Let’s blame my lack of sleep a cold on this one!  Apparently the ‘save draft’ and ‘publish’ buttons so different things!
So here is my quick Thanksgiving tradition recipe before I move onto this weeks category!

Pumpkin Bread French Toast

Ingredients
1. Pumpkin bread (If you are being adventitious and have time, make THIS bread!  Otherwise, a mix from the store will do.  Follow the directions and make the bread 12+ hours beforehand).
2. 2 eggs
3. 1/2 cup milk
4. Cinnamon
5. Vanilla extract

Directions
1. Slice cooked and cooled pumpkin bread into 1 inch slices.
2. Mix eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon together.
3. Pour liquid into a baking sheet.  Place each slice of bead in the liquid mixture.  Let soak 1-2 min and flip.  Repeat soaking on other side.
4. On pre-heated skillet, place the slices of bread.  Cook until bottom is crisp, 2-4 min, then flip the bread.  Repeat.
5. Enjoy with some fruit, a side of turkey bacon or some eggs (Or all of the above!)

Ok, and now onto this weeks topic!!! I am teaming up again with my girls Farrah from Fairyburger, Montana from Pretty Lil Mudder, Emily from Whatever Floats Your Oats and Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama and Cassandra from Powered by BLING!!  Today’s theme is PIZZA!
I have been experimenting the last few months with making gluten free pizza.  I have tried many different mixes for the dough, and in the end I found one that tastes pretty good, and when I get it on sale, is nice to the wallet too.  I love me some pizza with lots of veggies on it too!

1/3 cup tomato sauce mixed with spices of choice! You can look here for my sauce spice mix!
1 red (or yellow or both) pepper, chopped and sauted
1 cup spinach chopped and sauted
1/2 cup goat cheese, shredded

    Yum! ❤ I've had pumpkin french toast on my to-make list for a while. *-*

    Love that you used goat cheese on your pizza! :] I can't really decide on a favorite pizza topping, but I can narrow it down to…pineapple, chicken, mushrooms, bell peppers, caramelized onions… :D?
