How to Make Healthy Homemade Pizza | LOW CARB High Protein Pizza – Tutorial

Hi you guys, welcome back to my channel, my name is Bethany and my channel is all about making health and fitness apart of your everyday life Today we're here in my kitchen because we're talking about the delightful topic of pizza

The average person consumes 46 slices of pizza a year, but pizza can be notoriously high in calories making it a not so healthy choice But in today's video, I'm gonna show you how to make a super healthy homemade pizza that is low in carbs and high in protein so that you can still enjoy the mouthwatering taste of pizza without all the extra calories and still reach your health and fitness goals The way we can acheive this healthy low carb pizza is by using cauliflower for the crust and adding a source of lean protein as a topping Without further ado, let's get into the recipe The ingredients that you'll need are riced cauliflower, fresh spinach, baby tomatoes, pizza sauce, pre cooked chicken, 1/3 cup of oat flour, 1 egg, seasoning, I'm using garlic, sea salt, and Italian seasoning, and lite mozerella cheese

You can also buy a head of raw cauliflower and then grind it up yourself in a food processor, however buying it pre-riced or pre-ground like this, saves a step Once you've gathered all the ingredients you need, preheat your oven to 425 degrees The first step in making the cauliflower crust is to steam the cauliflower on your stovetop for about 10-12 minutes until it's soft Once you're able to mash the cauliflower with the back of a spoon, you'll know that it's soft enough and ready to form a dough So there are two crucial steps to make a sturdy and crispy cauliflower crust

Cauliflower crust can be notorious for being soft and soggy and we don't want that to happen So the first crucial step is to squeeze as much moisture out of the cooked cauliflower as you can Once you've finished steaming your cauliflower, take it over to the sink and press the cauliflower with the back end of a spoon against the side of the strainer, squeezing as much water as you can out of it Once you've done that, spread a towel out on your counter and dump the cauliflower onto that and continue to squeeze the rest of the remaining moisture out of the cauliflower At this point, the cauliflower should form a nice little ball which you'll put into a bowl

The next crucial step in making a sturdy cauliflower crust is to add the right ingredients to help bind everything together So we'll be adding 2 ounces of mozerella cheese, 1/3 cup of oat flour, and 1 egg Mix all the ingredients together to form a dough and then add your seasonings If your dough still seems a little bit too wet or sticky, go ahead and sprinkle a little more oat flour to help everything bind together Now our cauliflower crust is ready to bake

Generously spray your pizza pan with some cooking spray or coconut oil You'll definitely want to make sure that your crust does not stick since cauliflower crust can be a little more fragile than regular pizza dough Now gently spread and pat your cauliflower crust out onto your pizza pan, forming a large circle, being careful not to spread it too thin Then pop your crust into the oven at 425 for 10-12 minutes While the crust is baking you can go ahead and prepare your toppings

So wash and cut up your baby tomatoes and your spinach, and set those aside Once the crust is bubbly and the edges are crispy and golden brown, remove the pizza dough from the oven, and we'll go ahead and prepare to add our toppings Add 1/4-1/2 cup of the pizza sauce, depending on how saucy you like your pizza And then add another 2 ounces of the lite shredded mozerella cheese on top Then go ahead and add about 4 ounces of your pre cooked chicken as well as the chopped up baby tomatoes and spinach and then garnish the top with a little bit more of the Italian seasoning

Put the pizza back into the oven to bake for about another 7 minutes, keeping an eye on it to make sure it doesn't get too brown around the edges Once the cheese is bubbly and the toppings are all melted together, you'll go ahead and remove the pizza from the oven and let it set and cool for about 5 minutes before transferring it onto a cutting board Once its cooled a bit, the crust should be nice and firm and ready to slice up Now, the only step left is to enjoy a hearty healthy slice of that delicious beautiful low carb high protein pizza Thanks so much for watching this pizza tutorial, guys, hope you enjoyed and if you did, give it a thumbs up and consider subscribing if you're new here, I make weekly videos on all things health and fitness related
