Carnivore Joy

Carnivore Pizza “Tre Formaggi”

On numerous occasions, we’ve celebrated with a good pizza. Preferably home made. But that all came to an end when we went carnivore, because I had no idea there were such a thing as carnivore pizza.

So when my son last week said to me, “Let’s celebrate with a pizza,” I raised an eyebrow.

No way, I was going to add several kg/lbs of weight just for one evening’s pleasure. Besides, pizza crust was highly overrated.

“Carnivore pizza,” my son added, and now I was all ears.

I found a recipe online that mostly looked good. When I say “mostly” it’s because the woman who created this recipe used a lot of pork in it, which I don’t eat.

So I had to tweak it around.

My first attempt was good. It took me 50% longer than the estimated time to make it, and there are definitely things I’ll do differently next time.

Update: I just made my second carnivore pizza tonight, and the tweaks I’ve made did wonders to the pizza. Oh my gosh! So crisp, so tasty, so yummy! More about this further down.

But both my son and I loved the result. Really yummy. You could taste it wasn’t a crust made out of flour, it was good, crispy at the edges, and you didn’t get that yuk feeling that you do if you’ve eaten a flour crust.

You can see Ash’s original recipe over here. Thank you for the inspiration for this carnivore pizza, Ash.

Here’s How You Make Your 100% Healthy Pizza

  1. Start preheating the oven to 190℃.
  2. Melt the butter.
  3. Mix the ground chicken, eggs, butter, and salt in a food processor. The original recipe says “blender” but even though I have a heavy duty kitchen machine, it couldn’t blend through the whole batter.
  4. Move the batter to a bowl, add the cracklings/crushed beef bacon, and stir carefully.
  5. Split the batter in two. Put parchment paper on a baking sheet, and spread one half of the batter over it. Make it super-thin.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes. If the batter wasn’t super-thin, then you may need 40 minutes.
  7. Remove the pizza crust from the oven. Add the toppings: shredded cheese, sliced goat cheese and crumbled Gorgonzola.
  8. Bake for another 15 minutes. Remove the pizza, cut it in pieces, and enjoy it warm.

No bread. Only carnivore ingredients. And yet, it tastes like pizza and if you add a fourth cheese, you’ll have the classic Pizza Quattro Formaggi. This pizza may end up taking an hour in total to create. For me, it took almost 1 1/2 hours, but it’s my first time trying this recipe.
