So I’ve been following a Ketogenic meal plan for about 6 months now. I have to say, I absolutely love it. It’s basically super low carb, high fat and high protein. I am fairly dairy free with it, for the most part, but allow myself some dairy. For a long time I followed the 28 day Challenge by the Ketogenic Girl. It’s wonderful and weightloss is pretty fast but I found it a bit too hard to maintain. Now I mix recipes from Ketogenic Girl as well as some great ones from Peace Love and Low Carb. Occasionally I actually come up with my own! Below is a breakfast pizza using Fathead Pizza Dough. This dough is a life saver! Check out the recipe and try it for yourself. Add toppings you like as well as seasonings! The key is, have fun with it!
Keto Breakfast Pizza:
Start out making your Fathead Pizza dough. There are tons of recipes but it’s super easy. I used this one from Ditch The Carbs. Recipe also listed below:
- 1 3/4 cups pre shredded/grated mozzarella cheese
- 3/4 cups almond meal/flour
- 2 tbsp cream cheese
- 1 egg
- pinch salt to taste
- 1/2 tsp dried rosemary/ garlic powder/ onion powder or other seasonings you enjoy
- Favorite toppings: Sausage/ bacon/ eggs/ mozzarella cheese/ parmesan cheese/ veggies
Mix the cheese and almond flour/meal in a microwaveable bowl. Add the cream cheese. Microwave on HIGH for 1
minute. Stir then microwave on HIGH for another 30 seconds.
Add the egg, salt, rosemary and any other seasonings, mix gently.
Place in between 2 pieces of baking parchment paper and roll. Remove the top baking paper/parchment.
If the mixture hardens and becomes difficult to work with, pop it back in the microwave for 10-20 seconds to soften again (not too long or you will cook the egg) and start over.
Make fork holes all over the pizza base to ensure it cooks evenly.
Slide the baking paper parchment with the pizza base, on a baking tray (cookie tray) or pizza stone, and bake at 220C/425F for 12-15 minutes, or until brown. To make the base really crispy and sturdy, flip the pizza over (onto baking paper/parchment) once the top has browned.
While your dough is baking, use this time to cook your toppings. In this case, I used Italian sausage and eggs. Rather than butter I used butter flavored coconut oil to grease my pans. If using eggs, don’t overcook them as they will cook a little more in the oven.
Once cooked, remove from the oven and add all the toppings you like. For a breakfast pizza, I did not use any sauce. Put the eggs on the bottom layer, then sausage, then mozzarella cheese. I even added a little chopped bacon to the top!
