(per serve) Carbs 12.6g / Fat 12.9g / Protein 22.3g / Calories 241


Ingredients

  • Pizza base (see here for Easy Peasy Fat Pizza Base recipe)
  • Sugar-free BBQ sauce (this will be the hardest ingredient to find out of all of them)
  • Mayonnaise
  • 150g chicken (shredded)
  • 2 slices of bacon (cubed)
  • 1/2 a green capsicum
  • 1/4 brown onion
  • Handful of shredded mozzarella

Method

  1. After removing your pizza base from the oven spread a small amount of sugar-free BBQ sauce onto the base
  2. Add onion, bacon, chicken, and green capsicum
  3. (optional) Press down on them a little to ensure they all stay in place haha
  4. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella over the top (if you allow a bit to get on the crusts it will make them extra crispy!)
  5. Put back in the oven for 10 minutes
  6. Remove and add a swirl of mayonnaise on top of the pizza
  7. Put back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes, or until the edges of the crust are beginning to look crisp.
  8. Enjoy!

Recipe: Easy Fat Pizza Base

I've tried a few low carb pizza options before (back when I was low carb, but not when I was Keto) and I've never found an option which I loved. I created a cauliflower base back when I put together the Nutrition Guide eBook, and since then haven't found an option I liked better.. UNTIL NOW!!! This low carb base took a few experiments to create, but it turned out better than I expected! Pizza recipes coming soon ;)


Makes 1 Small Base (2 servings in my opinion)

(per serve) Carbs 3g / Fat 21.5g / Protein 10g / Calories 232


Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup cream cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1 pinch smoked salt flakes (or Himalayan salt)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (potentially more, read on)

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 215C (420F)
  2. Place cream cheese and mozzarella in a bowl and microwave for approximately 1 minute (until they are melted)
  3. Remove cheeses from microwave and stir (the mixture will stick together slightly)
  4. Add salt flakes and garlic powder, stir again
  5. Add in 1 egg white and almond flour and mix through well. The mixture should now be very similar to a dough, just not so heavy. You should be able to handle it with relative ease (see image below). If it's not, add a little more almond flour until the mix is slightly less sticky and more of a dough consistency.
  6. Line a pizza tray or baking tray with baking paper
  7. Place the 'dough' mixture on top and press out until it's about 20cm in diameter (you can also roll the edges inwards to get a more raised crust).
  8. Cook in the oven for 15mins until golden, remove and add toppings of choice and re-cook (for another 15-20)! More pizza recipes with low carb topping ideas coming soon!
