Low Carb – Keto Pizza Recipe

Although few of us are Italian, giving up pizza when going on a low carb diet is like shattering our soul. Luckily though, in low carb pizza there is hope!

What is easier giving up something that we used to have and took it for granted for our whole life or something we never had before but suddenly we’ve been aware that it’s taken away.

This is a question relatively hard to answer in one sentence, as it depends mostly on the type of personality we have and the importance of the given subject.

However, most of us live in the same world, we experience it from our personal point of view thus the importance of the same facts are not equal for everybody.

It doesn’t help much that we haven’t got an emotion checking device where we could compare upset scores, like some of us can’t resist doing it with steps on our fitness trackers.

Wouldn’t it be interesting peaking into the inner soul of somebody after a botched lunch at a long-trusted restaurant where recently there was an ownership change?

Do those, who relied on that place as their second kitchen for years would be more upset after having served an instant soup than those whose dreams were a famed duck roast, was shattered to pieces when they’ve been told that such dish were only available for those who pre-order it on the phone?

Many, now pointless arguments of who is bearing the bigger burden would be instantly eliminated. We could no longer shed crocodile tears for our outgoing other half in a countrywide lockdown while fiercely demanding to free the country if we are guerilla introverts.

We could no longer make veiled self-sacrifices, pretending doing something out of duty instead of pleasure. We could instantly re-evaluate the reward system, we set for our kids for making a double effort in music practice.

Until somebody comes up with such wearable, we are left to our own judgements which aren’t that bad if we take the effort to pay attention to details.

Our mind has been trained to pick up all sort of non-verbal communication signals from surrounding human beings. It’s not a coincidence that our face has 43 muscles after all.

The worst part that over some of them, we have no control over and if someone knows what to look for, our emotions and in certain cases thoughts can be read from the moving of our muscles, eyes or breathing.

It’s not a coincidence that police interrogation tactics work so well but playing bad cop-good cop with our kid to find out if he really hates brussels sprouts or just pretending it to get another set of Lego easily would be an overkill.

It seems that we have to make such sacrifices in life every now and then to make the world a better place or at least more peaceful until we make a change. It seems that Batman (or Michael Jackson depends on generation) knows a thing or two about human behavior science after all.

Changing our way of life however impossible it may seem, is only a matter of changing our mind and the pain associated with it, is directly related to how roughly we conduct such matters.

Much like uprooting a plant is possible if enough care is taken, old thoughts can be diverted to completely different beads after enough preparations.

While we use shovels and picks to dig around deep roots, we use words and visuals to change old behaviors. Of course, our efforts will be in vain if the new soil is unable to nourish the plant, similarly as new habits fail to take root in reality deprived of motivation.

We see the world in the light of our goals. When we see what we want to achieve, our path to get there will be much easier to thread. The longer we thread the road, the more we seem to discover familiar wrinkles on the first unknown faces, that makes our new world a friendlier and better place than ever before.

Taking friends, well known feelings that will sooth the roughness of the uneven road, not only will make our journey more successful but more joyful too. Combining past pleasures with the joyfulness of present have the power to create many surprises.

As with surprises though we always have the same amount of chance to loath or love it. But we never know which we will do until we haven’t tasted it at least once.

Just like we never knew, we were going to love pizza when first tried. It turned out to be a beautiful friendship as that happens with most Italian food. Luckily though, the staple of Italian food apart from the starch are low carb, actually healthy ingredients that provide the most important part of the food, its flavors.

We can use these flavors to our convenience in any dish we come across in our life. Once we know how to create the base for it, we can lay the groundwork for anything to grow out of it without the fear of missing something from our life that we left behind.Low-carb-pizza-recipe-7-SunCakeMom

F.A.Q

What pizza has the lowest carbs?

The lowest carb pizza is most likely the pizza made from pork rind. It’s drawback though that it may have some pork rind taste. Pizzas made from almond or coconut flour come close second and both are allowed on low carb diets.

Is thin crust pizza low carb?

Thin crust pizzas have definitely lower amount of carbs than thick pizza crusts due to their reduced mass but still won’t make them eligible for low carb diets.
