KETO PIZZA CRUST

We’re quite the pizza lovers. We eat pizza at least one time a week. So finding a substitute to go from a high carbohydrate pizza to a low carbohydrate pizza was crucial for us.

We’ve tried out different recipes for a crust that tastes just as good as a the original pizza, and after some tries, this one is the one we love!

You can now create your own pizza just the way you like it, with toppings of your choosing.

Plus, this pizza crust is easy to make (There’s no dough swinging involved).

Ingredients

  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1 cup of almond flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley (optional)

Instructions

Put 2 cups of shredded mozzarella and 2 tablespoons cream cheese in a microwaveable bowl. Heat it up in the microwave for 60 seconds.

Preheat the oven on 450°F (or 230°C)

Take the bowl out of the microwave and add 1 cup of almond flour, 1 egg, 1 tsp of baking powder, 1 tsp of garlic powder and 1 tbs of Italian seasoning. You can also add 1 tsp of oregano and 1 tsp of dried parsley (these last 2 herbs are optional).

Mix everything together with a spoon until well incorporated.

Put a parchment paper sheet on a baking tray. Put the dough on the parchment paper and put another parchment paper on top. Now roll out the dough until it has the right thickness.

Transfer the pizza crust into the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes (the crust should look golden brown when ready).

Your crust is now ready and you can put toppings of your liking on top. Bake the pizza for another 10-15 minutes with the toppings.

Enjoy!

KETO CHICKEN BARBACOA

This delicious chicken recipe is full of taste and easy to prepare. You put everything in a pressure cooker, and the chicken prepares itself!

Ingredients

  • 8 chicken drumsticks
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 onion
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon himalayan salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup of liquid amino alternative soy sauce (No regular soy sauce!)

Instructions

Turn on the pressure cooker and select the chicken cooking menu. Melt 2 1/2 of butter in the pressure cooker.

When the butter is melted, add 1 chopped onion and stir. Add 1 chopped bell pepper and let it cook for 5 minutes. (Do not put the lit on the pressure cooker until the end.)

Add the chicken drumsticks and stir everything around.

Add the spices: 1/2 teaspoon himalayan salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, 1 teaspoon paprika powder and 1 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning.

Stir everything around, and let it cook for about 2 minutes.

Then add 1 cup of liquid amino alternative soy sauce and put the lit on the pressure cooker. Let it cook for about 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes, when the program is done, release the steam and open the pressure cooker, then stir everything around. Then close the pressure cooker and cook everything again on the chicken cooking program. This will make the chicken nice and soft.

5 minutes before the program is done, release the steam, so the excess water vaporizes.

After this, the chicken is ready to eat.

Serve with vegetables of your choice.

Enjoy!
