These don’t even need a semicircular name because they are always semicircular. I felt very infomercial with this one because I used Pillsbury pizza dough. I knew I wanted a lazy dinner tonight, but this might be a little too lazy. Pillsbury pizza dough is….not good. It didn’t really taste like anything and it was just, not pizza dough. I wasn’t expecting much, but it really wasn’t worth it for the quick dinner. Next time I will use real premade pizza dough from the grocery store or local pizza place. I’m not exactly sure why I didn’t just do that tonight.

Other than that these were good! I filled them with some leftover homemade pumpkin sausage, yet another adaptation of Julie’s steamed sausages. These are so easy and amazing. I also used some tofu ricotta and a little bit of tomato sauce on the inside. The filling tasted great and these baked up really quickly. The pizza dough was not very doughy and pretty thin, so I ate two.

Overall these were good, but would have been a lot better with real pizza crust.

On a separate note, Rami really should have won Project Runway. His dresses were amazing and his clothes were really timeless and classy. I didn’t hate his colors.


Spelt Pumpkin Smuffins by ijustdiedinside

Smuffins? Semi-muffins? Sure, I guess that works.

I’m so into spelt lately, and these muffins based on the Vegan with a Vengeance muffins came out great! They only had to bake for about 8 minutes and they were baked perfectly. I made a half batch and got 3 semi circular muffins, so each one is worth two, which is good because I never eat just one muffin.

This made a great breakfast for a few days.

I’m actually watching the infomercial right now and really feeling like I need to veganize Stuffed Soup. And the Tostada Bowl might be next on my list. Ugh, now they are putting left over El Pollo Loco in a tortilla with a kraft single.

I’m sort of running out of semi circular ideas. I need to start getting more creative with this thing.

Here are the pumpkin spelt muffins. They were super yummy, and I will definitely admit that this is much quicker than baking in the oven.
