Ultimate “I Can’t Believe It’s Keto” Pizza

Yes, you read it right, Keto pizza. Pizza from scratch in approximately 3o minutes. You can’t beat that! Pizza delivery isn’t even that fast and is nowhere near as healthy.  It’s crispy but chewy, with everything you love about traditional pizza. Here’s what you need to get it going. It’s super simple and will be ready before you know it!

Ingredients:

2 cups almond flour

2 tablespoons coconut oil

2 large eggs

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pizza herbs

1 jar Whole Foods 365 organic pizza sauce

1 lb Grass-fed Ground Beef

a couple garlic cloves

1/2 cup mozzarella cheese

For the crust

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Put flour, coconut oil, 2 large eggs, salt and herbs in a food processor and blend it until it is sticking together.

With wet hands roll it into a ball on parchment paper.

Wet hands is important in the step. The dough will be incredibly STICKY.

Put parchment paper on top and roll it out remove the top piece of parchment paper.

Looking good, Keto pizza shell!

Place the pizza shell with the parchment paper on a flat cookie sheet bake it at 350° for 15 to 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, sauté your grassfed ground beef, garlic and whatever herbs you like (I throw some more pizza herbs in the mix) in coconut oil.

Let’s pause for a moment. I know some of you are looking at the above ceramic crock of “special pizza herbs” and are like, I DON’T HAVE THOSE! Never fear, it’s a blend of oregano, marjoram, thyme and basil. But if you do pizza regularly at home, and want to feel a little fancy, you can find this ceramic crock of herbs at Sur La Table. (And probably Amazon. Amazon sells everything.) Also, just thinking ahead here- awesome stocking stuffer for the foodie in your life!

Back to our Keto pizza masterpiece.

I drain the ground beef mixture so that we don’t make the pizza all soggy from the grease. But you do you, friend. Maybe you like it that way. It’s just one of my pizza tips.

Ding! Oh yes, our pizza crust is cooked. Pull it out and it looks like this.

Look at how beautiful this pizza crust is! I especially love that you get those dough bubbles like traditional flour pizza dough.

Generously spread your pizza sauce. I really like the Whole Foods 365 Brand pizza sauce. There’s no crazy sugar content.

Add your drained grassfed beef and this is what the masterpiece should look like.

Add cheese and bake until the cheese is that lovely golden brown color. (Sometimes I use the broiler to really accelerate this process.)

Voila! Or as they say in Italian, “Eccovi finalmente!”

The crust has 211 cal 19 g of fat a grams of protein 6 g of carbs and net three carbs because I have 3 g of fiber in 1 g of sugar.
Of course, you can use any topping but I would recommend sticking with good proteins and good fats which don’t have any carbs except for 2 net grams per serving from the pizza sauce.

Seriously, just sharing this Keto recipe has made me hungry for leftovers.

#MotivationMonday Series – Action

Precontemplation-5

Week Four of my #MotivationMonday series on Change. This week we are talking all about Action.

Action is the stage in which people most overtly modify their behavior and surroundings. This is where you walk the talk of the previous stages.

Now, the action stage is the most visible stage of change. You modify your behavior and implement the plan of action you prepared. Action requires the greatest commitment of time and energy.

Remember, Action is only the fourth stage of Change. There are six. So action has the possibility to be deceiving, in the sense that it sounds like it is the end stage of change. But it isn’t. You’re just over half way there.

Disappointed?

Don’t be. It takes a lot of energy to make a change. You may feel like you are really doing well. It’s day one and you called that friend instead of binging on candy at 4 p.m. Go you! The newness and high of the change has the ability to fuel the change for a while, but the fuel that feeds the day to day maintenance is not in place yet.

This is where change is very tricky. At this stage, most people erroneously equate action with change, overlooking the important, more challenging efforts needed to maintain the change.

You have to maintain the change. You might be surprised to discover that encouragement is scarce and find support dwindling just when you need it most.

It’s one thing to stop binging on candy at 4 p.m. for seven straight days in a row after five years of this behavior. It’s another thing to be in your third week of this change and discover that you forgot your tennis shoes, and your friend didn’t pick up the phone. Now what?

Remember, change never ends with action.

Join me next Monday, when we talk about Maintenance.
