Chicken Pizza Crust



The week before I got sick almost two weeks ago, I was on a ketogenic diet. I craved for pizza but couldn't eat a regular pizza because I was trying to reach ketosis.

When I went to see the doctor, he said the space between the L4 and L5 of my spinal segment is smaller than usual causing the disc to bulge touching the nerve roots. This is what causes the tingling sensation, pain and a bit of numbness in my lower back and left leg. This condition is called sciatica. Common among people working longer hours sitting. I was given medications to be taken morning and night after food. Was taught how to exercise my back to open the spine and release the pressure on the disc. Then there goes my vitamin D deficiency and some infections here and there.

In short, I am not on diet right now. I am eating normally but as healthy as possible. I am very careful not to gain back all those pounds I've already lost. The good news is, I am almost done with all my medications and feeling much better now. Hoping to get back to eating low-carb after this.

Going back to that pizza craving, I tried making another keto recipe. It is called Chicken Crust Pizza.

It is easy to make and it tastes good too. I am going to make another batch of this soon. It is great for kids packed lunch too. You can even eat it with rice, my daughter did.

I am sharing this recipe with you and you can make it if you are craving for pizza but couldn't compromise your diet just because you are having a craving.

Ingredients

1 lb Ground Chicken
1/2 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
Your favorite pizza toppings (mozzarella cheese, red pepper flakes, fresh basil leaves)

Equipment Needed

Bowl
Parchment Paper
Pizza Cutter

Instructions

1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C

2. Add the ground chicken, cheese, Italian seasoning and salt to a bowl. Mix thoroughly with your hands. 

3. Pour the mixture on a piece of parchment paper and spread into a pizza shape about 1/2 inch thick.

4. Place the pizza crust and the parchment paper directly on the oven rack. (I don't have parchment paper so I used foil) Bake for 20 minutes

5. Remove from the oven and add your favorite pizza toppings. I added pizza sauce and more cheese.

6. Bake for an additional 10 minutes.

Remove from the oven and cool slightly. Slice and serve.

Crustless Keto Cheesecake in Coffee Mugs


My officemates and I had this crazy craving. We all want to eat cheesecake but doesn't want all the carbs in it. To satiate our cravings, we decided we'll make crustless keto cheesecake in coffee mugs for dessert, to be eaten after our office lunch or during our tea break. The keto cheesecake recipe was courtesy of my colleague's friend doing the ketogenic diet like us. It is a no-bake recipe because there's no crust. It was very easy to make and it tastes so good sans the guilt. If you have a microwave and fridge in your office pantry and an hour lunch break, this recipe is for you. It only takes less than 10 minutes to make.

Here's what you'll need

Ingredients

8 tbsp Kiri cream cheese
4 tbsp Kiri labneh
4 tbsp Cooking cream
2 tbsp of Stevia
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp of lemon zest (optional)
2 heaping tbsp of sugar-free raspberry jam
fresh raspberry

Procedure

1. In a bowl, mix cream cheese, labneh, cooking cream, stevia, and lemon juice.

2. Mix it until incorporated.

3. Microwave it 3 times 30 seconds each time, mixing it each time it comes out of the microwave

4. It will soften a bit. Mix it once more and divide into coffee cups.

Since we are five, each got 2 1/2 tbsps of cheesecake filling.


This recipe serves two or one if you don't want to share. Lol!

5. Place the cups in the fridge and chill for two hours or until it sets.

6. Top with raspberry jam and fresh raspberries.
