In September this year, I had the opportunity to make a long-time-dream come true: Hubby and I packed our bags to spend a 3.5-week long holiday travelling around Europe!
Obviously, I’ll publish here all places I eat and visited, so stay tuned. :D.

Our first stop in Europe was Italy, more specifically in Rome.

Of course, our food choice to kick-off our holidays was pizza!
Emma pizzeria was super close to our accommodation and had amazing reviews online, which sounded like a good option.

Lucky us! This place was wonderful, giving us an awesome start and a good idea of what was coming next. 😁

My order

Romanian pizza was one of the items I had long-added to my foods-to-try list.

I really wanted to check what the famous crunchy and super thin pizza disc was all about. So we decided to order:

  • Mine: Quattro stagioni – tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella cheese, organic artichokes, champignon mushrooms, ham, organic egg, and olives.
  • Hubby: Margherita Red Cow – tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, and red cow parmesan (30 months old).
Quattro stagioni - tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella cheese, organic artichokes, champignon mushrooms, ham, organic egg, and olives.

Indeed, the crust was super thin and crunchy, and also super yum!

And what about the flavour, you may be asking!?

Mine was good but nothing special…

However, Hubby’s choice was SPOT-ON.

Oh my, that red cow parmesan was simply out of this world!

It was so remarkable, so punchy, totally putting this Margherita pizza on another level…
Seriously, you need to try this.

The verdict

It’s a great restaurant, with many other dishes available and a good variety of pizza flavours.
Staff is polite and friendly, no issues ordering things in English as well. I loved their service.

I wouldn’t say you should visit Rome only to try this restaurant, but if you happen to be around and keen to have an authentic Romanian pizza, make sure to order a Margherita Red Cow pizza!
That’s a true winner! 🏆

The best cauliflower pizza crust | Cauliflower dishes #2

Posted on

I can finally say I’ve mastered the technique to make the perfect cauliflower pizza crust. I’ve tried so many different ideas, changing a bit here and there, willing to get a version that doesn’t fall apart.

Today I’m proud to say I’ve achieved that! This is the BEST Cauliflower Pizza Crust EVER! This crust is perfect and simply has the best texture and flavour you can imagine. Put your fork on the side and embrace a delicious slice of pizza with your hands. 🙂

Ingredients
  • ½ head of cauliflower, shredded
  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 tablespoons of cream cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • Black pepper to taste
Directions
  1. Add water and shredded cauliflower in a pan. Once it starts boiling, cook for 3 minutes.
  2. Turn off the heat and let it cool down.
  3. After the cauliflower has cooled enough – like lukewarm temperature, strain the liquid out placing it on a cheesecloth or a thin tea cloth, squeezing very well. Squeeze it until you can’t see any drops of water coming out of it. Nobody likes a soggy crust!
  4. Next, add the strained cauliflower together with the rest of the ingredients to a medium bowl and mix everything until well combined.
  5. Place a baking sheet on a pizza tray and pour the batter over it. Use a spoon or spatula to make it even and in a circular shape.
  6. Bake the crust for 20 minutes at 180C (356F).
  7. It’s done! You can top your crust with any filling you like, here I added tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, black olives, and cherry tomatoes. Pizza time! 🍕

Hi my friends,
it’s Leo here and I must say: this recipe is a serious thing. We have tried many LCHF pizza crust recipes before, but nothing could beat this one.

It tastes and looks like a regular pizza, but it is also low carb high fat and super delicious.
It is a nut-free version from this recipe. Hope you like it. 🙂

  • 2 cups of shredded mozzarella
  • 3 tablespoons of cream cheese
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of dry oregano
  • 1 tablespoon of flaxseed meal
  • 1 tablespoon of psyllium
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut flour
  • 1 egg
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 160C (320F).
  2. In a bowl add mozzarella and cream cheese. Melt them using a microwave or in bain-marie.
  3. Bring your bowl to a work surface and add the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Combine everything until you have a dough texture. Reserve.
  5. Prepare a pizza sheet with parchment paper.
  6. Start by opening your dough on it (any shape you like) using your fingers.
  7. Top it with your favourite flavour, we used tomato sauce, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, chilli flakes, and rockets.
  8. Enjoy it! 🙂
