This dish just works! It literally just ticks all the boxes. From comfort to convenient with an added bonus that this is a nutrient dense combination that will be smart fuel for many a taxing or challenging day.
You may “quizza” the bride… (Couldn’t resist the little wordplay here 😉
I think it can be a “thing” …don’t you think? So if you ever see the term quizza in a restaurant, remember that it was named by a very pregnant low carb fanatic that simply loved her family enough to match every commercial junk food scheme with a hype of her own. Got all round thumbs flying up! That’s really the ONLY bottom line when it comes to “decarbing” and introducing new concepts.
4 (Free Range if you can) eggs
4 Tbsp cream cheese
A Grind of your favourite salt or herbed salt
1 Tbsp coconut oil for frying
3 medium baby marrows roughly grated
2 Tbsp tomato puree
3-4 slices of quality salami (or any meat or veggie topping you will enjoy on pizza – except ham off course)
Generous handful grated cheese (Mozzarella or white cheddar)
Preheat your oven on grill
In a mixing bowl, mix the eggs and cream cheese with a blending stick into a creamy consistency.
Grate the baby marrows. In a medium to large pan,on medium to high heat, melt the coconut oil and spread the baby marrows over the surface of the pan. Sprinkle with salt and allow to fry for a minute without stirring. Now add the cream cheese mix and allow the batter to form a crust and set on the sides of the pan only. (About 2 minutes) Pop the pan into the oven under the grill. Quizza will get puffy and will brown within 3 – 4 minutes.
Take out of the oven and spread the tomato puree, add toppings and lastly, the cheese.
Pop into the oven for another 2 – 3 minutes.
Cut into your preferred portion sizes and well… the rest you can figure out right?
Yields 4 quarters or 8 smaller sizes at about 3.5 grams carbs per 1 quarter portion.
That first bite… Love! You smell and taste pizza flavours that fill with nostalgic happiness and comfort while feeling so good about the choice you just made and the fact that indeed you did not cheat on something as damaging, as substandard, as inflammation filled, and as sugar spikin’ as wheat!
