KETO Pizza Crackers (High Protein)

KETO Pizza Crackers (High Protein)

pIZZAcRACKERS

I love pizza and I love crackers..therefore, the Keto Pizza Crackers were destined to be born. (Especially after I bought some great dips only to realize I had nothing to dip in them).

These crackers not only taste AWESOME (like a cross between a mozzarella stick and a cracker!!), they also pack a ton of health benefits. They are high in protein and high in Omega-3 fatty acids which can be lacking in a typical diet. If you’ve ever experience the dreaded “dry eyes” from going low-carb, these crackers will be a great help!

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

Serves: 4 (about 9 crackers each)

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup(52g) flaxseed meal
  • 1/2 cup(56g) almond flour
  • 1/4 cup(24g) kraft parmesan (dry)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp xanthan gum (optional)
  • Spices: (optional) 1/8 tsp of each:  Basil, oregano, chili pepper flakes salt, pepper, rosemary, majoram, thyme, garlic and onion powder OR  1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 tbsp(30g) olive oil 
  • 2 tbsp(15g) mozarella cheese
  • 2 tsp(10g) cream cheese
  • 2 tsp(10g) egg whites
  • 1/2 tbsp water (or as needed)

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400* F.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl.DSC_0069
  3. Add your egg whites and olive oil. Melt the cream cheese and mozzarella (about 20-30s in the microwave), stir and add it as well.DSC_0065
  4. Using a spoon (I found my hands worked best!) combine all ingredients into a soft dough ball. Add a little water as needed.
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment or tinfoil(if using tinfoil, spray well with oil). Press the dough down with your hands to form a thin rectangular shape(rolling pins won’t work well). Be sure to fix any cracks or gaps(these will not be an issue after baking!)DSC_0067
  6. Optional: Sprinkle the top with additional parmesan, salt and basil.
  7. Optional: Gently cut into desired shapes using a pizza cutter before baking OR you can just break the whole chunk after baking. DSC_0071
  8. Bake for 6-8min then broil the top for a final minute (WATCH CLOSELY WHEN BROILING. I burnt the first batch this way LOL).DSC_0076
  9. Cool then remove from the baking sheet and enjoy with some low-carb marinara sauce or pizza dip! (SO GOOD)DSC_0096DSC_0094

Keto Lasagna WITH NOODLES!

Keto Lasagna WITH NOODLES!

BEST LASAGNA eVER (1).png

I don’t know where to begin. This lasagna was EVERYTHING.

It tastes BETTER than regular lasagna..BETTER. I am being 100% honest guys. You need to make this like ASAP.

The “noodles” themselves are delicious on their own but pair that with a ton of cheese, meat and sauce…and OMG. That’s all I can say.

I slightly tweaked this recipe from it’s original I found here. (The author, Kyndra is a genius & I give her full credit!)

Ingredients:

Noodles:

    • 2 eggs
    • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
    • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated (I used half real parmesan and half dried)
    • 1 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded (130g)
    • Pinch of each: majoram, thyme, rosemary
    • 1/2 tsp basil
    • 1/2 tsp oregano
    • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
    • 1/4 tsp onion powder
    • 1/4 tsp salt

Filling:

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups of lower-carb pasta sauce (I used “Classico Tomato Basil” but added some salt, splenda and basil to taste )
  • 3/4 cup (90g) mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 6 tbsp 2% cottage cheese
  • 1/3 chopped onion
  • 1oz finely chopped green pepper
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • 1/2 tsp chili pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • Pinch of each: majoram, thyme, rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Noodles:

1. Preheat oven to 375° Line a 9×13 baking dish with tinfoil sprayed with oil or parchment paper.

2. In mixing bowl, using a hand mixer, cream together cream cheese and eggs.

3. Next, add Parmesan cheese and spices. Mix to combine.

4. Fold in mozzarella cheese and mix until well incorporated.

5. Spread the mixture into the baking dish, forming an even layer.

DSC_0957

6. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

7. When the “noodles” are done baking, cool in the fridge for about 20 minutes and then cut into thirds. This makes three perfectly sized “noodle” layers for an 8.5 X 4.5 X 2.5 loaf pan.

*NOTE: You can also make the noodles ahead of time and store them in your fridge or freezer!)

For The Filling

8. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, combine ground beef, onion, peppers and  your spices. Cook until the meat is browned.

9. Drain excess fat from pan and add ¾ cup of your sauce to meat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.

Putting It All Together

10. Pour ¼ cup marinara sauce into bottom of loaf pan. Top with the first “noodle” layer

11. Layer a third of the ground beef mixture. Top with ¼ cup mozzarella cheese and 3 tbsp cottage cheese, and cover with another “noodle” layer. Repeat these steps.

12. Cover the top “noodle” layer with remaining ground beef, and mozzarella cheese.

13. Sprinkle a little parmesan and basil over top. Bake for 20 minutes. Enjoy!
