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

How to Grill Pizza Dough

grilled pizza dough recipe

As I have mentioned a time or two, Joe does the grilling at my house. I don’t even know how to turn our grill on. Since I wrote that post, Joe has branched out and discovered the brilliance of grilled pizza dough. Seriously. Have you ever heard of grilled pizza before? I hadn’t, and I was skeptical when Joe first mentioned it. As you may already know, our two-year-old oven croaked about six weeks ago. We have spent the summer using the microwave, George Foreman grill, and our gas grill to cook. I would be remiss if I didn’t also … Read more

10 Awesome Pizza Recipes You Haven't Tried

Last week’s pizza stone post was so popular that I decided to do another one. Except I decided to focus on pizza instead of excluding it. My only rule this time?

Potato Crust Pizza – A New Twist on an Old Favorite

We eat a lot of homemade pizza. Almost every Sunday afternoon, Joe uses our stand mixer to make a batch of pizza dough. He pre-bakes it, and then lets it sit for most of the afternoon, until we’re ready to top and eat it. I love having homemade pizza on Sundays. It’s a comfort food tradition. And you know I’ve been loving the comfort food for the last couple of months. We ran out of yeast a couple weeks ago, but Joe didn’t want to forgo our pizza tradition. He improvised. We did have ten pounds of potatoes, so Joe … Read more

Homemade Pizza Dough


We have tried a lot of pizza dough recipes. For more than a year, we’ve eaten homemade pizza almost every week, usually on Sunday afternoon or evening. It’s become our tradition. As we’re lazing around, doing whatever it is we’ve decided to do, Joe makes a ball of pizza dough and then we all decide what to put on it. At first, we used a bread machine pizza dough recipe that came from either or The Complete Tightwad Gazette book. Unfortunately, we were never completely happy with that recipe. Not long ago, Joe went searching for a new pizza … Read more

The Secret to the Best Homemade Pizza

We’ve found the secret to the best homemade pizza. Really. I’m not pulling your leg. Joe and I have been making homemade pizza for a little while now, and we’ve always liked it. The pizza is healthy, and we top it with all sorts of different things. Except. Sometimes our pizza is really great, and sometimes it’s just okay. We figured out why just this week. It’s the garlic. We always buy fresh garlic, but sometimes we forget to put it on the crust before the sauce and the toppings. It makes a huge difference in the finished pizza. Don’t … Read more
