App Creator It looks like I am raking in money now, but the truth is that it was not always like that! Just 6 months ago I was completely struggling. I had no programming skills, no team and no money. The only thing I had was a great desire to create the game of my dreams. ...


Better than the Gym "I love the Venus Factor workouts and my body has transformed into something I thought I would never have!" Terry C. Warrington, Pennsylvania ! Terry’s Vital Stats: Age 53, weight lost: 33 lbs, inches lost: 8” on waist, 7” on hips. Due to time constraints I typically do half of a workout in the early morning and either finish it that night or the next morning. I do not spend a lot of time in the gym working out. This program is so doable even for someone who works full-time and is very involved in my church, son’s school and has a very active social life. I love the VF workouts and my body has transformed into something I thought I would never have! At my age I cannot believe the shape that I am finally getting, and I owe it all to the Venus Factor program. My 54th birthday is next month and I want to thank John for creating a workout and an environment that has helped me have the shape I have always dreamed of, I feel awesome!

holy crap this turned out so good it hurts.

I made a double batch, and instead of making it a pan pizza, I just made it a regular sized pizza with a thick crust.  it was so good and so filling!!

I used the recipe on this site for homemade barbecue sauce and we made another "BBQ Chikn" pizza like before using the Light Life brand chikn strips, and the "bacon"-- red onion, green onion, yellow onion, plus some roma tomatoes and an entire bag of Daiya italian cheese + some cheddar to bring it all together. 

fricken. amazing.  can't wait to post more pics!


@Tweedle - Yep! I think someone else suggested it before, but if you spray some oil into a ziploc bag, it'll keep fine. I usually make a triple batch of the dough, make two pizzas and then save the rest to make mini pizzas throughout the week for lunch. It saves very well!

And also, this recipe is soooo fantastic. Can't get enough of it since I tried it the first time a few weeks ago!

Thanks!  I made some dough this morning, though I didn't have a ziploc, I used some saran wrap and I didn't spray it with oil, but I'll be using it tonight, so I'm thinking it should be fine. 

I made this crust once before, and almost forgot how delicious it smells while you knead it...oh my god. I tried a tiny bit of the dough unbaked after I let it stand... god, it's good even uncooked. 

I can't wait to eat this on my vegan bbq "chikn" pizza tonight.  excited!!!
