Hi everyone. Paula’s sister here!

After much poking and prodding (virtually, through teh intarwebs), I’m finally posting my first GT Xpress endeavor. Unfortunately, it’s not very creative, but I figured it would be ok since I used Trader Joe’s pizza dough instead of Pillsbury, so they actually tasted amazingly delicious!

First, the b-fri and I made a vegan pesto using basil, olive oil, pine nuts, garlic, and…instead of parmesan…our special ingredient… Stacy’s Sundried Tomato and Pesto pita chips!

Then we cooked up some veggies (broccoli, bell peppers, mushrooms, olives, artichoke hearts) and mixed in some mashed up vegan meatballs. This was our result:

Then, after much stretching and rolling, we fashioned the pizza dough and filling into GT Xpress shapes and cooked them up! The dough puffed up considerably in the pockets, so the machine didn’t really stay closed…meaning next time we won’t use quite so much dough. Here’s the final product, which we dipped in tomato sauce and ate with glee!
