Diet Pizza Crust

My wife is on WW. She has lots a lot of weight and looks great. This is a great pizza dough that needs no rise time. It is a sticky dough, so be warned. Ingredients: 1 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt 1 1/4 cup AP flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 teaspoons olive oil In a stand mixer mix all ingredients using a dough hook. Blend for about 8 minutes or until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. If it doesn't pull away, add more flour a tablespoon at a time until it does. Form dough into a circle about 12 inches in diameter and top with your favorite toppings. Bake in a 450 degree preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until crust is lightly browned.

Carnita Wraps with Green Salsa

Living in Florida, we miss out on local produce from other states. This is the case for Hatch chilis. A couple of years ago I was able to get a few pounds at a local store in Orlando, but since then I haven't had any luck in fresh peppers. My wife was visiting family in New Mexico and brought me back a case of canned peppers.  Carnitas Ingredients: 1 pound pork tenderloin 1/2 teaspoon seasoning  salt 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon  onion powder 1 teaspoon cumin 1/2 teaspoon chili powder 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika 1/2 teaspoon oregano 1 teaspoon brown sugar 1/2 teaspoon lime juice 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 teaspoon white balsamic vinegar Begin by making the marinade for the pork. Combine all the spices, olive oil, lime juice and balsamic vinegar in a small bowl. Cut the pork into 1/2 inch cubes and place meat in a ziplock bag. Add the spice mixture and let meat rest in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Preheat a cast iron pan
