I have been helping in the kitchen and playing with my food for as long as I can remember but my real interest in trying new things and cooking started a few years ago when we lived in Idaho. We had a wee bit of snow in the winter…..
Let’s just say that I had a lot of time on my hands mixed with a love for baking and cooking. Another reason for my bold, and sometimes crazy, experimental cooking was making things for my dad.
My dad eats low-carb most of the time and I like to make things that he can eat. That way I don’t feel as guilty when I am making yummy, fluffy carb-laden foods that boast of yeasty goodness as they fill the house with their aroma. I started making low-carb foods and trying new ingredients for my dad with all my extra time. Sometimes they worked but many times they didn’t.
Now that we live in Chile, I don’t have as many of the ingredients for low-carb cooking as I had in the U.S. Something that is very available here is fresh produce. Cauliflower may not taste like yeast but you can make a pretty good crust with it that can help satisfy your pizza cravings. Something that is great about low-carb cooking is that it is usually gluten-free as well. This recipe is for blue cheese lovers and bacon fans but you can top this crust with anything you want.
