Pizza Night Friday, Finally !

The one thing I really missed when we decided to go Keto was pizza. We love pizza but the dough kills us. For awhile we were making pizza with ham as the crust, in a pie tin. It was quite tasty but I was tired of eating “pizza” with a knife and a fork. I wanted to pick up a slice of pizza!

When we moved to Maine, we halfway did Keto. Let me tell you, cheating with a slice or two of pizza tasted so good, until it hit my stomach. Being sick for 3 days for 2 slices of pizza was not worth it!

And here it is, cauliflower pizza crust that works!!! And trust me, they are not all made equal.  Here is the Cauliflower crust we use, Cauliflower Pizza Crust.  I love that the ingredients are simple.

I cook mine in a toaster over so the directions didn’t work so well for me. I threw my first crust out it was so burnt.  I put the toaster over at 375 and cook for 4 minutes. I make sure that my crust is on a pizza pan with holes in it and not a pizza stone. Once that is done I take it out to cool and prepare my toppings.  I flip the crust and build my pizza.  For this one we did sauce, we use Rao’s Marinara Sauce. You can typically buy it at any grocery store. Walmart has it, about $6.99 a jar but the lowest carb sauce I have been able to locate. Shredded Mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, sausage and roasted garlic. It was so super yummy. The best thing about this pizza is that you can pick it up and eat it like a slice of pizza!!! Bon Apetit!

Best thing I ever ate, this week…

My Keto journey started in January of 2017. It was the hardest thing I had ever committed to doing, but I really loved how it made me feel.

Needless to say, moving to Maine put a HUGE kink in those Keto plans. We wanted to eat everything, try everything and indulge on dessert. After 6 weeks my body felt like crap!!!!

I am day 6 back on track with Keto. And again, it is the hardest thing ever. Currently I cannot tell if I have the Keto flu or simply the stomach flu!  So Yesterday I made a batch of bone broth and homemade chicken soup.

But seriously, the best thing I have eaten this week is fried cheese and pepperoni with some marinara sauce.  Now that I have an oven that I can use non stick skillets on, fried cheese it is. I literally just shredded up some cheese, threw it in the pan, added some pepperoni and let it fry!  AND NO JUDGEMENTS, the best part about it was licking the cheese grease off of the spatula!!!! THE BEST.
