(light music) – Hello my friends, welcome
to Keto With Sarah Jane. My name is Sarah Jane,
and if you haven’t seen me or any of my other videos
before, make sure you click on that subscribe button. So in today’s video I want to share a few of my favorite recipes. So I’ve been a chef for
about 14 years before I started to study
nutrition and started to really specialize in the keto diet. So as you know the keto
diet has only 10 percent carbohydrates, and those
carbohydrates typically come from vegetables
and some of the fruits. So we tend to stay away from
the starchy carbohydrates and your sugar and your processed foods. Now a lot of people when they
hear about the ketogenic diet, and the low carbohydrates,
get very stressed, because a lot of their favorite foods are the carbohydrate style. So typically that’s your
breads, and your cereals, your pastas, and mainly pizza. So this is one of the
recipes that we’re going to teach you today, is how to
make a keto friendly pizza. So we’re going to start off with the base. So we’re going to create the
base first, to cook that, and then we’ll put the toppings on. Now of course we’re not
going to be using any flour, so it’s based on using cauliflower. So cauliflower of course
is one of the cruciferous vegetables, which contains high quantities of phytonutrients. So phytonutrients are anti-carcinogenic. So these help to fight
diseases in your body, it helps to rid your body of toxins, and at the same time giving you vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K,
and all of the minerals that your body really loves. So let’s start off with the cauliflower. So I’m going to take one
fresh, whole cauliflower and we’re just going to remove the head. And we’re really just after the florets, so we don’t really want a lot of the base, a lot of the stems, because
they contain high quantities of water, which will not be
as dry on our pizza base. So we’re just going to
cut away from the base to get the florets. So just remove those. And then we’re left with the florets. I’m just going to cut
them into rough chops. Now, what you can do if
you’ve got a food processor you can put this straight
into your food processor and blend that, if you
don’t have one of those, then just your everyday grater
will do the exact same thing. So I’m just going to put
this into my blender here. So I probably won’t get
all of that in there, but I’ll just try sections at a time. Okay. Okay so this nicely blended up now, so we’re just going to place
this into a mixing bowl. Okay so now what we’re going
to add is some seasoning. So some pink Himalayan salt for those added benefits of the trace minerals. So I put a grinding of salt. I like to use cayenne pepper. So cayenne pepper gives
it that nice warmth, and it also gives you the
added fat burning benefits. So a little bit of cayenne pepper. And then what we need is one egg. So one egg into the mix. Then we’re going to mix all this together. Then you’ll have your mix, like so, and what we’re going to add is some cheese to give it that pizza flavor. Okay so I’m just going to
grate some mozzarella cheese. So try to get yourself
some mozzarella cheese that’s fresh, don’t use
the mozzarella cheese that’s already grated in a bag. The reason you don’t want to use this is a lot of the cheese
that is already pre-grated is coated with a lot of
anti-coagulants and flour that protects the cheese so
it doesn’t clump together whilst it’s in storage and in the shops. So that’s going to also
kick you out of ketosis. So we want the benefits but
we don’t want the ill effects. So try to get yourself
some fresh mozzarella and grate this up by hand. Alright. So, we’re just going to
use roughly about half for the base, and then we’re
going to use half for the topping. So put that into your mix. Take your mix and blend in the cheese with the rest of the cauliflower. Alright, once that’s
blended then you can start to prepare your base. I actually don’t have a pizza base, but that’s probably the
ideal thing that you’ll use. So I’m just going to
use a spring base form. I’m also going to use some baking paper that will help you to
remove it at the end. So that’ll go into my base. And then what we’ll do is to
pour the mix into the base. Then we’re just going
to spread this as thin or as thick as you like. And then we’re going to
place the base into the oven to cook, we’re going to put
it in for about 20 minutes on 180 degrees. Hi, and welcome back to
Keto with Sarah Jane. So I’ve just cooked off our pizza base using cauliflower as our main base. So now we’re just going to dress it up. So you can see we’ve just
got it so it’s pretty much dried out, and it’s browned on the top, and it’s gone nice and crispy
just like a pizza base. So then we’re just going to
spread it with a tomato base. So try to keep your tomato
base as fresh as possible, and when I mean fresh I
just mean canned is fine, but what I’m saying is don’t use anything that’s too high in sugar. So a natural tomato puree
is what you’re really looking for there. The alternative is you can
also use pesto as your base. So just spread a little bit
of tomato paste on the top. Then what we’re going to
do is to add a little bit of mozzarella cheese that
we grated earlier on. Put that all over on the top. And really, it’s up to
you, get the kids involved, they’ll love doing all of this. So what I’ve done is I’ve got
some bacon already cut up, so some bacon pieces on there. I’ve got some beef, ground beef mince. Add that. And lots of good capsaicins
and fresh vegetables. Whatever you’ve really got lying around, whatever takes your fancy. And I love my cheese, so. Little bit more on the top there. And I’m just going to finish it off with a good helping of salt, and
then it’s back into the oven. Hi, and welcome back. So I’ve now got a finished
pizza all ready to cut up. Just like the real thing. Straight out of the oven’s quite hot, but. Mm. Delicious. So, try one of these recipes, and keep you on the ketogenic diet. (light music)
