Om nom nom! It’s pizza time. And it’s carb free! (Well no direct carbs anyway)
Keto is forcing me to try out new recipes everyday and today, I’ve seen way too many full carb pizza ads to stay away from them. Here it is, as carb-less as it can. Below is my version of this recipe.
Ingredients for the ‘dough’:
- 1/4 cauliflower
- 1 egg
- Mozzarella cheese
- Parmesan cheese
- Cheddar cheese
- Salt & pepper
Put the cauliflower in a food processor with chopping function and mince it just like making cauli-rice and work the processor 30 second more than that. Put it in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave the cauliflower for 7 to 8 minutes. When it’s done, take it out, let them cool off and dry the vegetable using a kitchen towel or paper towels. Get them as dry as you can.
Ingredients for tomato sauce:
- 1 cup grated tomatoes
- 1/2 cube Oxo Italian spice
- Salt & pepper
When the cauliflower is drying you can prepare the pizza sauce. I used grated tomatoes and half an Oxo – Spag Bol Italian spice cube. Just put them in a small sauce pan and mix them together on the stove. Leave aside to cool of and thicken.
When the cauliflower is dried enough, mix with the rest of the ingredients of the dough and lay on a non stick baking sheet. Shape it with you hands. put in the oven to cook and form the crust. 10 to 15 minutes at 180°C.
Take the crust off the oven and put the toppings.
- Tomato sauce
- Green bell peppers
- Cheese (Mozzarella & cheddar)
I used Turkish pepperoni Sujuk but of course any type of pepperoni is fine. Just decorate your pizza as you like and put it back in the oven for a very short time. 5 minutes is more than enough. When you take the pizza off the oven, let it cool for a while, with the lack of flour, the overall pizza will be vulnerable for the first few minutes but will hold together after that. Enjoy.
