[Keto in the Kitchen] – Cheese Crust Pizza

IMG_20160110_194547

To make this pizza I combined the recipe from here (but doubled the ingredients) with some techniques from this video. It came up to about 12″ in diameter.

Cost and Macro Breakdown For 1/6th Slice:

  • Fat: 23.5g (211.5 cal)
  • Carbs: 0.33g (1.32 cal)
  • Protein: 22.4g (89.6 cal)
  • Total Calories: 302.42 cal
  • Fat/Protein Ratio (g): 0.95
  • Cost: $0.67

Verdict:
Meh. Wasn’t at all crispy even though I nearly burnt the cheese crust by broiling it. It was as greasy as you would expect crust entirely made of cheese to be. And very floppy too. I couldn’t hold up a slice without folding it in half first. The flavor was very good however. I’d give the flavor a 8/10 and the texture a 4/10 giving an overall score of 6/10.

Next Time:
There are many, many variations on this recipe, most involving cream cheese and almond flour to give the pizza more rigidity. I have some leftover ground up flax so maybe I can incorporate that into the crust as well. As this pizza did not yield as much food as I wanted, I’ll probably have to make this new pizza in a couple days.
