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

Grilled Pizza on Udi’s Gluten-Free Pizza Crust

Grilled Pizza on Udi's Gluten-Free Pizza Crusts

This is not a sponsored post, but I did receive free Udi’s products to try. A few months ago, a friend suggested I try Udi’s Gluten-Free Pizza Crusts. I scoffed. “We cook from scratch,” I said. “I’ll find a good gluten-free pizza crust recipe eventually,” I said. “They’re too expensive,” I said. Well. We’ve tried a bunch of different gluten-free pizza crust from scratch recipes. We found a good one, but it wasn’t awesome. We couldn’t grill it, too crumbly. The cooked dough is a little too doughy. It doesn’t reheat very well. Udi’s Gluten-Free Pizza Crusts caught my eye … Read more

Easy Mexican Pizza

Easy Mexican Pizza

This is a sponsored post. Joe created the recipe himself, and all opinions are mine. The worst part of my being gluten-free is the lack of convenience food. When we’ve been working out in the garden for too long, and we come inside, covered with dirt and hungry, we have painfully few options. Joe put together these Mexican pizzas one day when exactly that happened. The sun was shining, and we gardened and played outside late into the evening. By the time we came in, it was after 6 o’clock. Joe made Mexican pizzas on Flatout Thin Crust Flatbreads (which … Read more

Making a Quick Lunch with Ellio’s Pizza (includes a giveaway)

Ellio's Pizza Review

My girls and I are on the run a lot. From moms’ groups to art class to church activities, we are in and out of the car almost every day. Because a lot of our activities end just before lunch time, I need quick lunch options. One of the girls’ favorites is Ellio’s Pizza. I want to pause to say that I have purchased Ellio’s Pizza at Walmart for quite a while before this review opportunity came up. I am being compensated to review the product, but I agreed to do so because I was already a fan. We buy … 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

Date Nights with Dr. Oetker Ristorante

dr oetker pizza review

Evenings at my house are not conducive to a healthy marriage. When Joe comes home, I go to work (on the couch, but to work nonetheless). We all eat together, and he bathes the children and puts them to bed. Usually, he falls asleep in one room or the other, and I work until the news comes on. Or later. In this season of our lives, there’s not a lot of time for looking deep into each others’ eyes. It’s still important though, vital even. We have a standing date with friends. Each month, the four of us go out … Read more
