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!

We all love our bread!

Standard

In Holland it was in the headlines today that people are eating less and less bread.

All because of the changes in dietary habits of a group that is becoming larger everyday; the low-carb movement… The new book “voedselzandloper” (food-hourglass?), written by a Belgian doctor, has contributed even more.

Personally, I have been cutting down on carbs, and recently I have been trying to eat wheat free when possible.

But I still like eating bread-like products, so I decided to bake a bread using almond flour and linseed. Some eggs as raising agent, and after about half an hour a nice bread was the result!
