Form a circle with the triangular shaped pieces, overlapping them slightly.

Place the filling near the circumference of the inner circle (real close, but with the ability to press the dough edges together once you fold the pointy part of the triangles over the filling.

Now fold the triangles over the filling.

Press the dough edges together with your fingers.  Now the circle is complete!

Hmmm, delicious....ready for eating!  Doesn't that look pretty and inviting?

Slice away and enjoy! Help yourself to a spoonful of guacamole.

MIRACLE DOUGH TIPS: - Please note:USE BOB'S RED MILL COCONUT FLOUR FOR ALL MY RECIPES AND ESPECIALLY FOR THIS MIRACLE DOUGH - COCONUT FLOURS DIFFER GREATLY IN THEIR ABILITY TO ABSORB MOISTURE!  There are several variations of this kind of dough on the internet, but mine is different to all the others out there.  I am getting very adept with this dough.  Use a fork to make it come together.  At first it looks impossible (might even have strings of cheese in it), but keep mixing and then turn out on a cutting board.  Knead for a couple of minutes, adding a bit of coconut flour as needed to make a lovely elastic dough. The more coconut flour one can add (usually about 1 tbsp or a bit more), the more bread-like the dough becomes (more substantial).  Since coconut flour is mostly fiber, you're not really adding much in the way of carbs, spread over several servings.  I put the dough ball on parchment paper and cover the dough with plastic wrap and using a  rolling pin (sometimes I use my special small one for pie dough), roll it out with ease.  If at any time the dough becomes resistant to rolling, nuke it approximately 10  to 20 seconds and away you go again!

Here is how it looks while mixing with a fork - looks impossible, right?  Don't worry, keep mixing!

Here is a pic of the dough ball - lovely, soft and malleable!!

Mozzarella cheeses that I have successfully used with the Miracle Dough and The Sweet Miracle Pastry Dough as well.  I get mine from Price Smart in Central (technically South America) America, which is the same as Costco in the United States.

I tried this one a couple of times

I usually grate my own cheese using my 20-year old Braun food processor, which has a ton of gadgets - this is the cheese I use most often - looks like it might be very similar to the one above, however, I think they sometimes add something to their grated cheese to help it last longer.  I could be wrong.  CLICK ON THE PHOTO TO SEE A BIGGER IMAGE.


This is amazing!  Great appetizer!  Leave a knife next to it and people can slice pieces off for themselves.  It looks impressive, but it’s really so simple to make and fun, too, if you’re in a creative mood.  Please note that for the Miracle Dough and any of my baking recipes, use Bob’s Red Mill Coconut flour.  Coconut flours differ in their ability to absorb moisture and that can affect the recipes quite a bit.  Have fun with this and impress your friends, low-carb or not! :)

2 cups diced chicken (500 mL)
2 tbsp bacon fat (30 mL)
1 large onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 cup sliced, fresh mushrooms (250 mL)
Seasoning salt, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
4 oz regular cream cheese (250 g)
1 cup grated Mozzarella cheese (250 mL)

Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). 

In medium bowl, place chicken.  In nonstick frying pan, over medium heat and in 1 tbsp (15 mL) bacon fat, cook onion until turning translucent.  Add green pepper and cook until onions and green pepper are soft.  Add to chicken.  In nonstick frying pan in remaining bacon fat, cook mushrooms, until moisture evaporates and they begin to turn brown.  Add to chicken.

Prepare Miracle Dough.  Place half dough on parchment paper and cover with plastic.  Roll out into a 10-inch (25 cm) circle.    Repeat with the remaining dough (remember if the dough becomes resistant to rolling out, nuke 10 to 20 seconds and away you go again!).  Cut each circle in half and divide each of those halves into 6 triangles.  Place the triangles in a big circle on a large, greased pizza pan, with the pointed edges of the triangular pieces of dough facing the outside circumference of the pizza pan and the wider parts overlapping, leaving an open circle in the center.  Place the chicken and veggie filling on the overlapping dough close to the open (leave a tiny space), vacant circle in the center.  Dot with cream cheese and sprinkle with grated Mozzarella cheese.  Fold the pieces over the filling, pinching the dough where it meets with your fingers to seal.

Bake 20 minutes.  Loosen underneath the ring with a metal spatula and place back in the oven, position the part that is least brown towards the back of the oven.  Bake another 7 to 10 minutes, or until golden in color (not dark).

Helpful Hints:  For a Grain-Free version, use a bake mix made up of 2 cups (500 mL) almond flour and 2/3 cup (150 mL) coconut flour.  Use 3/4  cup (175 mL) of the mixture.  Or, simply use 2/3 cup (150 mL) almond flour and 2 tbsp (30 mL) coconut flour for each batch of Miracle Dough (I have not tested this smaller version, but the Grain-Free Bake mix - yes!). I still prefer the Miracle Dough goodies made with the Gluten-Free Bake Mix, however, this is an very lovely option.
