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.

  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!

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!
