I am kinda new to the whole low carb thing.
The mechanic has always used this way of eating to drop pounds and keep them off.
Me, I love my bread, pasta, and all the sweets.
But after baby #5, I had to do something to lose some pounds. The regular calorie counting and working out was just not working for me anymore.
So this past November, I set off on the low carb diet adventure with the mechanics help. I am super happy to say that it has worked, down almost 50 since the baby came last June.
Most days I don’t even miss the carbs! Here lately though I have been craving new. We do normally stick to the same few low carb meals that we know. But I want more!
Low carb pizza crust seemed like a great way to go. There are so many recipes to choose from. I found one and just went with it.
It turned out not too bad, better than I thought it would. I will say it is not something I would want to eat all of the time but, still good.
I found the recipe at http://www.bewellassociates.com.
1/2 cup coconut flour
2 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. minced garlic (or one clove)
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. oregano (optional)
Heat oven to 375.
Line pan with parchment paper. (I have used foil but the crust gets really thick. You must grease with olive oil to prevent sticking)
Spread mixture onto parchment paper in the shape of a pizza. (I made several small, personalized sized crusts)
Bake for 15 minutes or until brown.
Flip over carefully and allow to cool for 10 minutes before removing parchment paper or foil.
Top with your favorite toppings and return to oven. Bake until cheese is bubbly.
This is how mine turned out. We topped it with peppers, onions, tomatoes, olives, and cheese.
Next time, I think I may try adding some cheese to the crust. Til then, I will continue to search for new low carb recipes.
