DAIRY FREE KETO PIZZA

If you watched instagramstory, you might have heard me mention I’m on a dairy free week this week. I’ve noticed some bloating, and skin break outs lately. So I am checking if it could be related to the dairy I’m consuming.

Don’t get me wrong, I love dairy! But if it doesn’t do me good, it might be better for me to consume less or avoid it.

Anyway, as always, when I make changes to my diet, I don’t want to compromise taste. The key to sticking to any lifestyle change is to find a way that is sustainable. As a foodie, I’m always trying out new recipes or find ways to create something that is works well for me, and that I can enjoy. So if you’re dairy free, like me this week, I recommend trying out this pizza.

This recipe makes 1 small pizza, but I couldn’t finish it, it’s very filling.

INGREDIENTS

For the pizza crust:

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons psyllium husk
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 1 teaspoon Apple cider vinegar

Pizzatoppings

You can use your favourite pizza toppings, these are the ones I used:

  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/2 can of tuna
  • 1 egg
  • oregano to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • arugula lettuce

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Start by making the crust.
  2. Preheat the oven at 220 C / 428 F. Line out a parchment paper on a baking tray to place to pizza on later.
  3. In a large bowl, add all the dry ingredients: coconut flour, almond flour, psyllium husk, baking powder, xanthan gum, salt and garlic powder. Mix.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the bowl, and mix everything together until you have a firm dough. Knead it for another 2 minutes and form a ball.
  5. Place the ball on the parchment paper and press is down, shape it into the pizza form.
  6. When you have the desired form, bake the pizza crust in the oven for 20 minutes until it start to brown a little.
  7. Take the pizza crust out of the oven and add your pizza toppings. I used tomato paste, canned tuna, salt, pepper and oregano .
  8. Bake for another 10 minutes.
  9. Top it off with some nutritional yeast if you like a cheese flavor, a fried egg and some arugula lettuce.
  10. Enjoy!

DAIRY FREE KETO BROWNIES

It’s baking season, I’ve shared some pumpkin spice baking recipes, but I was missing some chocolate. So brownies are the perfect treat to satisfy that chocolate craving on a cold autumn afternoon. They’re perfect to make with kids too, my daughter was a big fan of making these. This recipe is so easy to prepare and doesn’t require too many ingredients.



INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/2 brown granulated erythritol (white is fine too)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 3 tbs water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Line parchment paper in a square 8 inch pan.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients: almond flour, cacao powder, erythritol, baking powder and salt.
  4. In a small bowl, add the wet ingredients (coconut oil, water, eggs and vanilla extract) and mix.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and mix until you have a smooth batter.
  6. Spread the batter evenly in the pan and bake for 10-20 minutes in the oven. The longer you bake the brownies, the less gooey they will be. So check once in a while to have the desired consistency.
  7. Let cool down and take the complete cake out of the pan with the parchment paper.
  8. Cut into squares.
  9. Enjoy!
