Fathead Pizza!

Standard

In the long time that I have been eating Low Carb and searching the internet for recipes, I have seen the name fathead come by a lot, but never quite knew what it was.

Until today. I found a recipe for a fathead pizza base, made with cheese and almond flour, and it turned out great!!

Here’s the recipe:

170 grams of grated cheese, mozzarella or gouda;

85 grams of almond flour

1 egg

2 T creamcheese

 

First melt the cheeses in the microwave and stir well. After that add the almond flour and the egg and mix well again.

Put the mixture (with some herbs, garlic, salt/pepper) on a baking tray with a baking sheet at flatten it. Bake at 220C for 12-15 minutes, turn over and bake for another 5-10 minutes.

This is your pizza base. You can put just about anything you want on this pizza, just bake it for another 5-10 minutes and then your pizza is ready!

Low Carb Kale Chips

Standard

In Holland it isn’t easy to find Kale as a bunch. It is sold just about everywhere, but then the kale is shredded because most of the time it’s eaten in ‘stamppot’, which means together with potato mash and sausage.

But in one store in Rotterdam I found some organic kale, so I bought this to try making kale chips again. Last time they didn’t turn out great. This time they did!

The recipe:

Some kale (I just used 50 grams)

Olive oil

salt.

Preheat the oven on 250F/120C.

Wash and dry the kale. Sprinkle oil over the kale and make sure all the leaves are covered. Use your hands.

Lay the kale in a single layer on an oven plate covered with parchment paper. Sprinkle with salt (not too much, I did this I am sad to say) and put into the preheated oven.

After 20 minutes check how they are doing. If they are crispy, they are ready! If not, leave them for another 5 minutes.

Enjoy!
