Default Low Carb Pizza

Low Carb (I'll also post a very low carb recipe without the yeast)
Dough:

1 envelope-Active dry yeast

1 cup-Warm water

1 cup -Whole Wheat Flour

1 1/2 cup-Soy flour

1/2 scoop-protein powder (optional, but takes away some of the soy taste)

1 tea-Salt

2 tblsp- Olive oil

Method:

Put whole package of yeast into the cup of warm water, and let this stand for 10 minutes.

Combine all dry ingredients, except 1/4 cup of wheat flour, in a bowl and whisk or mix (with food processor-dough blade in). Add oil and yeast and mix until dough is formed. Flour a hard (preferably wood) surface with the remaining 1/4 cup of wheat flour, and turn dough onto this surface.

Knead dough for 5 minutes (add up to 1/4 cup of wheat flour if needed, because dough may be a little sticky). Spray another bowl with olive oil or pam spray and place dough into this bowl and cover for 30 minutes.

Dough should double in size. Spray pizza pan with pam spray and shape dough in pan. Cook for about 10 minutes, then put your favorite toppings on (cooked toppings) and bake for another 10 minutes (or until cheese has melted, depending on what cheese you use) minutes at 425.

Sauce/Topping suggestions:

Sauce:
Low sodium can of crushed tomatoes (if you can't find this, low sodium tomato sauce works)

Oregano

Fresh garlic cloves minced

Pepper

Basil

Thyme

Sage

Toppings:
(I like to cook my proteins with the Italian herbs that I put in the sauce)

Chicken breast diced

Spinach

Turkey sausage

Lean (97-99%) ground beef

Feta Cheese (with spinach and chicken)

Light mozzarella cheese (with ground beef or turkey)

Light Cheddar Cheese (with ground beef or turkey)

What ever you'd like....Let me know what you think if you try it. I tell you that the soy flour gives it a different taste, but it's still delicious (although soy is not for everyone).

This looks yummy! Do you happen to have any numbers as far as how many carbs/calories per serving, serving size?

I have been looking for a way to make pizza dough healthier.

You Won't Believe it's Cauliflower Pizza Crust

1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower*
1 egg
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 tsp fennel
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp parsley

**pizza or alfredo sauce
toppings (make sure meats are cooked)
mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 450 degrees Farenheit.
Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.
In a medium bowl, combine cauliflower, egg and mozzarella. Press evenly on the pan. Sprinkle evenly with fennel, oregano and parsley.
Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes (15-20 minutes if you double the recipe).
Remove the pan from the oven. To the crust, add sauce, then toppings and cheese.
Place under a broiler (grill for the Europeans) at high heat just until cheese is melted **.

Notes:
*I use frozen cauliflower prepared according to package directions. After cooked and slightly cooled, I shred cauliflower with a cheese grater, and then measure for the recipe. (Don't pack down the cup with cauliflower. Just fill it with a spoon or the cup itself.)
** The pizza sauce I use is Great Value Pizza sauce from Wal-Mart. At only 3 net carbs per quarter cup, you get a lot of punch for little carbohydrate pow.
*** You can try re-baking the pizza at 450 once you add toppings if desired, but the crust is not quite as crusty. There is a minimal difference, so see what works best for you.


Nutritional Information for the entire crust:
calories: 434, fat: 25 g, carbohydrates: 8 (net), 13 if counting all, fiber: 5 g, protein: 41 g.


Nutritional Information for one serving: 109 calories, 7 grams fat, 2 net carbs, 1.5 grams fiber, 10 grams protein.
