The Best Easy Keto Pizza Crust

I have tried several keto pizza crust recipes, and this on is the best! It is affordable, fast and easy, and super simple to make. If you follow my suggestions, you can make a family sized pizza with one batch!

First, gather your items:

  • Silicon Rolling Mat x2 (I use one like this)
  • Baking Sheet
  • Rolling Pin
  • Two Microwave Safe Bowls
  • Large Spoon (though I prefer to use clean hands)

Then, gather your ingredients:

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 & 1/3 cups Mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • Sauce
  • Herbs and Spices
  • Pizza Toppings

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 375f. Add 1 & 1/3 cup mozzarella, 2 tablespoons of cream cheese, and spices to your microwave safe bowl, and nuke for about 90 seconds until melted. Use your spoon to mix the melted cheese.

Step 2: In your second bowl, add 1/3 cup coconut flour and 3 eggs, mix.

Step 3: Mix cheesy bowl into the flour bowl. You want to do it this way because otherwise, your egg will cook some and make your pizza hella weird.

Step 4: Add your spices. These are up to you! I usually add an Italian mix (oregano, basil, and thyme, as well as some garlic). But get creative! You can add curry flavors and top your pizza with chicken, lots of garlic and add just cheese as a topping, and much more. (Or don’t, I’m not the flavor police 🙂 ) Mix everything thoroughly. I use clean hands, because the mix is pretty sticky at this point.

Step 5: Place your dough onto a silpat, and smush it out. Place a second silpat over the first one, and roll it out even. Pull the top silpat piece off, place the bottom silpat, with the dough attached, onto your cookie sheet. When the oven is done heating, place the cookie sheet into the oven. Cook for 10 min at 375.

Step 6: Pull your pizza dough out, add your toppings, and put back in the oven for another 7 minutes or so. Depending on your toppings you may need to add time.

Thats it! Crazy easy, and delicious!

Where does this fall on the glycemic index? or What sugar can I have on Keto?

What is the glycemic index, and why should I care?

The glycemic index (GI) is a a measure of how quickly a food causes our blood sugar levels to rise. The foods are ranked on a scale from 0 to 100. Foods with a high GI should be avoided, because they cause a rapid spike in insulin. For example, jelly beans trigger a lot of sugar response in your blood. However, a food like celery, which is a carbohydrate, does not have this same effect because it is low on the GI.

What does GI have to do with keto?

Glycemic index has a lot to do with keto! Insulin allows the cells in the muscles, fat and liver to absorb glucose that is in the blood. This glucose can serve as energy to these cells, or convert to fat. If you instead avoid high GI foods and sweeteners, there is less of an insulin spike, and therefore less sugar being converted to fat.

Keto Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast

Mmmmmm

The other day I made Keto Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast. It was amazing!

Ingredients:

  • 2 slices Low carb bread (I use Sola Bread)
  • 1 Egg
  • Cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp Cream Cheese
  • 1/4 cup Berries
  • Sugar Free Syrup
  1. Dip your bread into egg like normal for french toast, both sides, add cinnamon to your liking.
  2. While french toast is cooking, toss some berries into a pan. Let them cook down. Add some cream cheese, let it mix together. Taste it with a clean spoon. Should be amazing, but if you need a little sweeter, add more berries. Note: Remember, berries have sugar, so the more berries, the less keto your meal is! I used about 1/4 cup berries, and 4 tbsp cream cheese.
  3. Layer your french toast, then cream cheese, then french toast. Cover with sugar free syrup.
  4. Grab a knife and fork and shovel the meal into your mouth. It’s okay, I won’t judge.

How to Make Lemon Extract

When life hands you lemons, add vodka and make lemon extract!


Lemon extract is SUPER simple! All you need is a clean container, lemon zest, and vodka. For extraction, be sure to use at least 35%, or 70 proof alcohol. I usually go the the liquor store and buy the cheapest vodka.

Cheapest vodka my local store had at time of purchase.

Hubs was awesome and “volunteered” to zest the lemons for me. Lemon extract only calls for 2-3 lemons on zest per 1/2 cup of vodka. I added the zest to a mason jar, and poured in my vodka. My little mason jar is holding 1 cup of vodka, and zest from 5 lemons.

Lemon extract takes about 4-8 weeks, be sure to store in a dark place, and shake daily!

How to Make Homemade Sauerkraut

Today included several projects, but one was homegrown, homemade sauerkraut! We planted the cabbage a few months ago, and considering it is our first year growing cabbage, it has done surprisingly well.

We freshly harvested the cabbage today, and rinsed the leaves. I pulled them apart and made sure to clean thoroughly between each leaf.  After cleaning the leaves, I stacked them and julienned the leaves (cut in long strips).

After cutting the cabbage, I put into a large bowl. You will want to then sprinkle in 1.5 tsp of  salt onto your cabbage. Then gently caress your cabbage leaves until the water (or brine) begins to leave the cabbage. 

My cabbage took about 10 minutes of caressing to expel a good amount of water. You will then put your cabbage into a mason jar, and let it ferment! It’s only going to take a few days for your sauerkraut to ferment and become delicious, but longer is okay! You want to keep your cabbage submerged to prevent it from spoiling. You can purchase a weight to place inside of your mason jar, however, I place a plastic bag into the mason jar, and fill it with water. This acts as a reusable weight that doesn’t require additional storage! Once the cabbage looks like sauerkraut, remove the bag, remove any funk on top, put a lid on, and stick in your fridge to enjoy with grilled bratwurst!

NOTE: I clean the plastic bag and reuse it many times!

Be sure to “burp” your fermenting items, and if your container is close to full, I recommend placing a cloth underneath of it for quick clean up in case of any spillage.

There you have it! I will be sure to update in a few days with my yummy sauerkraut!
