Following a low carb diet?

A couple months ago we shared a popular pizza crust recipe using almond flour and mozzarella cheese that yields both a yummy texture and taste. It’s very simple to make using just a few ingredients, and happens to be the best low carb crust I’ve ever tried! Many of my fellow Hip2Save team members are fans as well! It really is a MUST try idea.

I like that this delicious “bread” isn’t limited to pizza, and can be made into garlic bread, sandwiches, calzones, and even these Pigs in a Blanket using hot dogs or sausages. SO yummy!

Simply prepare your “Fathead” Dough using THIS recipe, divide it into 8 sections, and then wrap them around hot dogs or cooked sausages. It’s a fun meal idea that’s both yummy and low carb!

These turned out so TASTY!

Both the taste and texture are fantastic! My kids really love them also. They re-heated nicely as well for leftovers. If you are eating low carb, this is a great option that would likely please your entire family or party!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
