Keto Bacon and Jalapeno Pizza. Because I only wanted to cook once today, today it’s not only what’s for dinner… but lunch and dinner. In some form (any form!), I was craving jalapenos and bacon and was thinking of a cream cheese/bacon/jalapeno/chicken dish but, weekends are for pizza!
My pizza however? Swoon.
But along with some whey protein powder, I usually use psyllium husk powder and an egg in mine.
1 1/2 c almond flour
1 T baking powder
1/4 t salt
1/4 c unflavored, zero carb, zero sugar whey protein powder (isopure)
1 t psyllium husk powder
1 1/2 c mozzarella cheese
Toppings of your choice
6 oz cream cheese, softened
1 c mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 c Mexican blend cheese (cheddar and others blended, or use just cheddar)
bacon crumbles – real, cooked bacon, crumbled
Preheat your oven. 400 ish. So it gets hot when your oven does, I use a pizza stone – kept in the oven.
In the bowl of a food processor, place the dry ingredients and pulse to blend. Add the egg and Until it’s a bit crumbly, pulse to blend just a few times. Place the mozzarella cheese in a bowl and microwave until it just starts to melt. To the food processor bowl, add this and pulse a few times, but to form a dough, stop as soon as it comes together.
Divide into 2 pizza crusts. Between 2 pieces of parchment, roll each. On parchment, slide the pizza still, into the hot oven on the pizza stone. About EIGHT minutes, bake until it gets golden. Remove. Bake the 2nd the same way. Top the first one with your favorite ingredients while the second one is baking. Just spread the cream cheese on the crust if you are making the jalapeno bacon version in my photo, top with the other cheeses, crumbled real bacon pieces and diced jalapeno.
Take the 2nd pizza out and for 5-8 minutes more, put the first back in to cook until it’s melty and golden on top. Top your second pizza (today our second was my husbands favorite – pepperoni and green olive) while it’s baking. Remove the first, for 5-8 minutes, pop in the second.
Another ‘note’ for a more crisp crust is that sometimes, after the first bake, I remove it from the oven, and then flip it over so I’m putting them on the underside when I put the toppings on.
