Here’s a way to stay true to your low carb lifestyle, while still enjoying your favorite pizza toppings from time to time… This is the pizza that I used to put together at our local Flatbread restaurant, back when carbs were an option, and I wanted to see if it could be adapted. I used to order figs as one of the toppings, but have substituted sun dried tomatoes here for that hint of sweetness, without too many carbs. Also featured are arugula, garlic, and herbs–all picked fresh from our cabin garden!
For the Crust:
- 2 cups mozzarella shredded cheese
- 2 cups grated cauliflower
- 4 eggs
- 2 cloves garlic – peeled, crushed and minced
- 1 teaspoon dried basil (or 1 tablespoon fresh chopped)
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano (or 1 tablespoon fresh chopped)
- 1/4 lb blue cheese, crumbled
- 2 oz. sun dried tomatoes, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
- 1 medim onion, peeled and chopped
- 6 slices bacon,
- Fresh arugula, well washed with stems removed
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Make your crust. Mix all crust ingredients together well, and press onto a large baking sheet that has been covered with parchment (helps make cleanup easy )
- Bake crust for 30-40 minutes at 350 degrees F, or until it looks like this:
- While crust is baking, cook bacon until crispy and sautee onions and garlic until lightly browned
- Once the crust is ready, add blue cheese, bacon, sundried tomatoes, onions & garlic until you have covered the crust. Sprinkle some more shredded mozzarella on top if you’d like.
- Bake for 10 more minutes at 420 degrees F. Let cool for 5 minutes before cutting into slices with a pizza cutter.
- Top with fresh arugula and enjoy!
Tip: this pizza is even better leftover! Put it in the fridge, pan and all, uncovered overnight and the crust will firm up even more.
