Seat Covers and Pizza Crust

My patio set is showing some wear.  Not the table, it's glass topped and is holding up nicely, but the plastic on the seats is disintegrating. 

So a couple of months ago I picked up some nice heavy outside fabric from Jo-Ann's.  I was going to just recover the seat, but I like the curvy metal work on the front of the seat so instead, I just made a Velcro-on cover.  I lined it and wrapped the cover all the way around the seat and it Velcros on the underside.

It's cut on a slant since the chair seat is tapered.  It worked out better than I hoped.  I'll take them off and bring them inside after use.  I have quite a bit of fabric left-I'm going to see if there's enough to cover the pew cushions.  I can cheat and use something else on the underside.

The other day, I found a recipe on Pinterest that I wanted to check out.  I like to explore the blogs that have the pinned item, and while doing that I found a recipe for cauliflower pizza crust.  I can't believe how well it turned out.  I haven't had pizza in years and this recipe just gave me back a beloved food!

The recipe called for almond flour, but being allergic, I substituted equal amounts of tapioca flour, potato starch and coconut flour.  It wouldn't roll into a ball, so I patted it into the pan, using lots of potato starch.  Be sure you use parchment.  I've been a tightwad for so many years, but this year I broke down and bought some.  Why did I do without it for so long?!!

Looks very nice and you can pick it up in your hands and eat it just like wheat crust.

I have lots of leftovers, yummy!!
