Chicken Crust Pizza – The Best Low Carb & Gluten-Free Pizza Recipe

The best simple & easy low carb chicken crust pizza - Uses ground chicken to make a crispy crust, topped with shredded cheese and other toppings like pepperoni and mushrooms. Great for bariatric patients and those on a keto, paleo diet. Very healthy and high in protein.

The one single food I have missed the most since my bariatric surgery is pizza. I have missed it so much that I have occasionally picked the cheese and pepperoni off of a slice of pizza and eaten it, just to have the flavor of the pizza. If you’re new here, I had bariatric gastric sleeve surgery in early April 2017, and I have lost 190 pounds so far (16 months at the time of publishing). I read early on that bariatric patients who do not eat carbs do the best in terms of long-term success, so I do not … Read more

Easy Gluten-Free Baked Ziti Recipe

I am super busy, working 40 hours a week as a Project Manager in addition to blogging, homeschooling, and attempting to do something along the lines of keeping up a home. I don’t say this to brag about my busy-ness or to say that I’m busier than you, because I expect that you’re just as busy. No one I know has time to spare. Joe and I work together really well, but we don’t have extra time to spend on meal preparation. We squeak out the moments we can when we can, and we always eat, but long everything from … Read more

Hot Pizza Dip Recipe

The best hot pizza dip, originally from a Pampered Chef recipe - Simple and easy with cream cheese and pizza sauce, this dip is the perfect appetizer. Low carb and gluten free. Great with pepperoni, olives, mushrooms, or other pizza toppings. Perfect food for the Super Bowl or parties. Kids love this too. Lots of mozzarella cheese.

  When I was a Pampered Chef consultant, I made this hot pizza dip recipe pretty often at parties. It was always a big hit because it tastes amazing, and it’s easy to put together. The original recipe is slightly different than my version. If you want the real Pampered Chef recipe, you’ll have to Google it. We took this to our small group meeting for church, and everyone had seconds. When we make it at home, the kids make sandwiches out of their scooper chips. I don’t get it, but they always do it, so it must be a … Read more

Eggplant Pizzas

eggplant pizza

We have gotten two or three eggplants from our CSA every week for almost the entire summer. Joe makes a delicious eggplant parmesan and a lovely ratatouille, but both get stale after you’ve alternated them three or four weeks in a row. We needed something new. Enter eggplant pizza. This recipe is entirely healthy, and it is loaded with vegetables.   They were delicious. We liked them so well that we made them on back-to-back nights. We ate them all on Wednesday night and made them again on Thursday. That’s a good recipe! A note on Grace’s reaction I’m still … Read more

Chicken and Cheese Stuffed Zucchini

chicken and cheese stuffed zucchini

The last time we went to the beach, we came home to a dead garden. It had been quite hot during the week we were gone, and the plants simply baked. We wanted to keep our fledgling garden alive when we went to the beach this year, especially in light of the dozens of tomato and squash blossoms emerging in the days before we left.  It wasn’t an easy task, but Joe installed a sprinkler and a timer set for 6:30 am every day. It wasn’t easy because the water hook-up on the outside of the house leaks, and Joe … Read more
