Thai Flatbread Pizzas

Click HERE for Printable Recipe There is a restaurant chain throughout Minnesota called Zorbaz. They have a Thai Pie that I decided to recreate. I also tried a few variations.

I am walking/running with my dog after work and a quick sun-salutation in the morning. My mom introduced me to a breakfast (Light n Fit Greek Vanilla Yogurt, grain-free granola, and frozen berries) and I quit eating Cheez-Its, chips, protein bars (with lots of carbs), crackers, Whataburger (which we were eating at least once a week), and Dominos (ordered every Sunday). I found this Shrimp and Sausage Paleo Skillet Meal and thought I would give it a try. I did find that I did not need the …
