As you may or may not know my diet is limited...which I am not complaining about at all but it is then a must to be able to eat what I enjoy and still stay within it for competition prep. I am far enough out and in a build phase so there is a little wiggle room but not much!

So Mike was craving pizza and so was I but I knew I couldn't have the traditional or even the kinds I had made for us in the past soooo I decided to try this!! 

Ingredients:

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 cups mashed sweet potatoes (~2 medium sweet potatoes)
  • 1.5 cups almond flour (other flours would probably work too)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (I used mozzarella, but any kind would work)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Your choice of toppings (we used tobasco and chicken with some veggies!)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Combine crust ingredients in a large bowl; mix well.
  3. Cover a pizza pan/baking sheet with tinfoil and coat with non-stick cooking spray...or it will probably stick and fall apart...past experience!
  4. Using a spatula, spread the dough evenly into a large circle about 1/2 inch thick. For those of you who like thick crust be cautious if may not cook the full way if it is too thick!
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes until center is firm and edges are lightly browned.
  6. Remove crust from oven, add toppings, and bake for another 5-7 minutes until cheese is completely melted.
  7. Remove pizza from oven, slice and enjoy!
