Weekend Low Carb Pizza, not quite the same as the Louis XIII Pizza !

Dear friend and fellow blogger as I post this today (13 May), along with many of you I am still having problems with leaving comments on so many blogs. Many of you have kindly suggested ways in which this situation may be fixed but alas not for me (and I suspect many others), it is very frustrating, and I do hope that blogger will sort it out soon, refer to this post here

In the meantime I hope you will enjoy todays post …


Goodness me!

Did you know that the most expensive pizza in the world costs $12,000 dollars. 

The Louis XIII Pizza is certainly the most expensive pizza globally, and the amount of time required to make this masterpiece partly explains why it is so costly. It takes about three days to make a perfect Louis XIII Pizza. Another factor that results in the high cost is the list of ingredients used to make this wonder happen.

The dough itself is made using Arabian fur, which is mixed with pink salt dust and thus the crust has to be made 72 hours before adding toppings. Different types of caviar, organic buffalo mozzarella, different types of cheese, prawns from Cilento, mantis shrimp, and lobster from Norway are used as toppings. No wonder an entire Louis XIII Pizza comes at a whopping price of about $12000, although one has the option of purchasing half of it at $6000.

I know a very nice and reasonably priced low carb pizza recipe
that is great for the weekend 😋 and can be cooked in the oven or grill

Ingredients

Serves Two
11g net carbs per serving

Flatbread
225 ml (125 g) coconut flour
3 tbsp. (25 g) ground psyllium husk powder
½ tsp (2.5 g) baking powder
1½ tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
4 tbsp. olive oil or coconut oil
475 ml water, hot but not boiling
Toppings
275 g fresh mozzarella cheese
175 g cherry tomatoes
2 tbsp. fresh basil
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 pinch salt
1 pinch ground black pepper
Tips
For even more flavour, feel free to spice up the flatbread dough with extra seasonings. Garlic powder, oregano or red pepper flakes make the pizza-style base crust even more delicious.
The absorbency of coconut flour and psyllium husk changes a lot depending on what brand you use. This means that it’s best to add the hot water little by little, until you reach the desired consistency. Start with 3/4 cup and add more as you go, if needed.
If you added too much water and the dough is sticky, just add some more coconut flour to absorb the liquid. If the dough is not sticky enough, add more water.

Low Carb Flours
If you are just starting a low carb diet/lifestyle you may feel confused with which low carb flours to use. You may never have used any of them before and how to use them properly can be daunting. Low carb flours do not behave like wheat flour, and how to use them in your old regular high carb recipes is a common question.
