Whoever came up with this idea is made of genius: A pizza crust made of ground beef. This pizza is low-carb, grain free, nut free, high in protein, and delicious.

Ingredients for the beef crust:

  • 1 pound ground beef (or your favourite ground meat)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese (optional)
  • 1 small finely chopped onion (I used white onion, but next time I think I would use green onions instead)
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion salt
  • Pepper

I didn’t add them to mine, but I think some finely diced sun-dried tomatoes would be a really great addition to this mixture. Make the mixture however you like it best!

Mix the cheese and spices together, and combine with egg, onions and ground meat.

Line a 9×9 inch baking dish wish tin foil and press the mixture down evenly with your fingers.

Bake the crust at 350F for 15-20 minutes. It will shrink quite a bit.

Carefully drain off the oil before you add your toppings.

Here’s the fun part; add whatever you like! Your favourite veggies, sausage, cheese, etc. I spread on a layer of lactose-free herb and garlic goat cheese:

…and then a layer of tomato sauce, and chopped mushrooms, basil, and black olives:

Crank the oven up to 425F or broil, and cook for another 10 minutes.

A pizza fit for a king. I think the guys over at Epic Meal Time would be pretty impressed with a beef-crust pizza. Have fun with this one!

Classic Kale Chips

You might be skeptical, but I think that these are almost better than potato chips. Crunchy, salty, healthy, what’s not to like? These chips are super easy to make and guilt-free.


  • Fresh kale
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper


Wash the kale thoroughly and let it dry completely before moving on to the next step.

Shred the kale into bite-sized pieces. Next, drizzle with olive oil. I tossed mine in a bowl with the oil.

Here’s the secret to making the best chips: use your fingers to massage the olive oil into each piece so that the whole surface of both sides is covered; this way the kale will cook much more evenly–and taste great!

Lay out the pieces in one layer on a baking sheet, and sprinkle with salt and pepper if desired.

Bake at 300F for about 25 minutes– watch the kale carefully while baking! It is easy to overbake. As soon as they get crisp, take them out of the oven.

Mine turned out a little bit dark because I baked them at 350F. A lower temperature will take longer, but give you lovely green chips that are crunchy and delicious. The next batch I made turned out much better, but I ate them all before I thought to take a picture…

Happy snacking!
