Hammer Head Pizza Dough

Most of us have heard of the biggest craze called “Fat Head Pizza Dough”- it’s basically a low carb pizza crust option and I honestly had my doubts…but those doubts were proven wrong!

We found a ton of recipes but decided to make a few changes to the ones we found and came up with a pretty basic recipes that tastes AMAZING!

We are going to try to change a few things to lower the calorie even more and hopefully get the fat down a little bit- this is great for keto diet which focuses on low card, high healthy fat.

The wife and I made it tonight and I’m serious, it’s amazing! It would be great to use as pita type bread for sandwiches as well.

Most of the recipes we found consider this 6 servings, which would bring the calories down to 182 calories but you would need to have a salad or something with it because it doesn’t really seem like that much, which is why we made ours 2 servings.

It mixes like a pizza dough and rolls out pretty well with parchment paper.

It rolls out really nicely and cooks up perfectly!

We threw some pizza sauce, light cheese, some Turkey pepperoni and mixed peppers and made something pretty healthy and it tastes just as good as any pizza we’ve made before.

1.5 cup Mozzarella Cheese
2 tbsp Cream Cheese with Greek Yogurt (found at Kroger)
.75 cup Bob’s Red Mill Super Fine Almond Flour1 egg
.5 tsp garlic powder

Put the cheese and cream cheese into microwave for 1 minute
Stir and microwave an additional 30 seconds
Mix in flour and egg
Stir until it becomes dough
Put the dough between two pieces of parchment paper and roll it out Remove the top piece of parchment paper and put the dough onto a cookie sheet, leaving it on the bottom piece of parchment paper
Poke holes in dough using a fork

Bake at 425 degrees for 8 minutes
Checked dough and pop any air bubbles with a fork
Bake at 425 degrees for an additional 4-6 minutes

If you are using it as pizza- load it up and pop it back in the oven for a few more minutes to melt any cheese or warm up toppings.

Dec 28, 2016 - Weight Loss    No Comments

Member? 

​When it comes to weight loss, there has to be a mentality change or you are just wasting your time. I’ve wasted decades trying to lose weight- only to fail or just gain it back again. I’ve had a lot of temporary success but could never stick with it. I know how to lose weight because I’ve done it and I’ve ENJOYED doing it…so there is no excuse why I quiet- it’s all a mental game with food. 

Today, December 28th, 2016- I think I may have had a break through. For the last couple of weeks, I had decided that I would start fresh on January 1st, 2017 so why not just go nuts. 

I’ve gained about 20 lbs and I feel like shit- I honestly go to bed worrying if I’m going to die in my sleep. I have a constant headache, my favorite jeans literally split open (two pairs!!!) and I’m tired all the damn time. I remember setting here and thinking “man, I wish these next few days would just be OVER so I can start trying to get healthy and not feel like this anymore!”

The more I thought about that, the dumber I felt. I thought and thought and just couldn’t wrap my mind around why I was doing this exactly….why was I forcing this idea of “starting fresh on the 1st” and making myself miserable for no fucking reason…it’s insane!

I downed a ton of water and went for a walk and now I already feel better. 

This is a fucked up disease…it’s an addiction and the more I set here and think about the bullshit I’ve told myself, the madder I get. 

I can’t go all out just yet because we have to put our decorations away this weekend so that I can get the bike and boxing bag out but I plan on cutting WAY back on the food and starting to walk 3 times a day again and adding healthy food and exercise where I can…. TODAY…

I truly hope I don’t go back and just stuff my face with crap- I want to keep this feeling…this motivation…I want to remember just how damn bad I feel right now because being skinny doesn’t feel better than food tastes…however, NOT feeling like you are going to die anymore probably will. 

I know what foods to eat….I know what exercises to do….I’ve laid the plan out time and time again- I just need to focus on the mind games and the binge eating. I have to be honest with myself, even when I’m alone. 

I need to become a fucking Member berry and come back to this post anytime I feel like I’m slipping and say…

….”oh yea….I member….”

Love, Peace and Sharkyness!
