Easy Low Carb Pizza with Trader Joe's Ingredients





It's easy to make a very fast low carb pizza when carb cravings strike. All these ingredients I got from Trader Joe's but you can get similar things at grocery stores. One Pizza will have more or less 7 Net Carbs depending on how much toppings you put on there. The Tortilla (which will serve as your pizza crust) only has 4 net carbs so everything you put on top of that adds to the net carb count.



Ingredients:

Sonoma Carb Cutting Tortillas

Bruschetta Sauce

Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

Egg

Mini Heirloom Tomatoes

COOKED Sweet Chicken Sausage (Use your favorite Sausage or Pepperoni)

Grated Parmesan Cheese

Salt & Pepper

Fresh Basil



Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. I used my toaster oven for this and it worked fine.

2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, or grease down a pizza pan.

3. Put the Tortilla in the middle of the pan

4. Spread the Bruschetta Sauce on top of the Tortilla

5. Cover with Mozzarella

6. Add toppings of choice. I put an egg, tomatoes, sausages, basil.

7. Add parmesan, salt and pepper

8. I baked mine in a pre-heated toaster oven at 400 degrees for 10 min and then broiled it for another 5 minutes. This part will vary depending on whether you use the oven or toaster oven. It's summer in LA so I'm not going to turn on the oven to 400 degrees, thank you very much! But, you do you. Just make sure the egg is cooked and you're fine since everything else is already cooked or can be eaten raw.

9. Serve immediately! Perfect thin crust LOW CARB pizza. You won't even miss the carbs.

Cuñape

"Cuñape" is the best cheeseballs in the world, and it’s from Santa Cruz, Bolivia. These gooey and addictive cheese balls are similar to the Brazilian "pão de queijo" or the French "gougères" or the Colombian "pandebono" but all of these are different from each other as well. Gougères are lighter and more airy while the Brazilian ones are chewier but drier on the outside. I would say the pandebonos are closest in taste and texture to the Bolivian cuñape but it is slight more bready.

In Bolivia, we use mennonite cheese (farmer's cheese) for this recipe and honestly without that cheese it will never be exactly like the original but you do what you can. I've been hunting down a similar cheese in the U.S. for ages but the closest I can get to it is to use the queso blanco or fresco and add some more salt (or even mix some feta into it).

The history of the cuñape is very interesting. It is a Guaraní word that means "a woman's breast&…

Donut Friend & Town Pizza - York Blvd, Highland Park, CA

First, Donut Friend - a DIY donut house. They also have some on their list that are already made. I like ordering off their menu because well, they spent a lot of R&D money to make sure some of these ingredients work together. When left up to my demise, the donuts I create end up tasting off. 
My favorite off their menu is the Jets to Basil and Nutella Vision. This one below is neither of these. I don't even quite remember which one this was but it contained reese's pieces and it wasn't as good as the two aforementioned donuts.

You end up ordering at the cash register but the setup looks almost like you order it when you walk up to it and follow the donut maker to the cash register. That is not how it works here. You just order at the cash register and someone makes it for you (and you're allowed to watch this person make it for you). Yes, it is a confusing set up and I get annoyed as well. 
Another place we go to frequently just because it is convenient and becau…

Making Mocochinchi

I get really excited when I can think of a food or drink that is solely Bolivian. I admit there isn't too many Bolivian dishes that are not influenced by the many countries that it borders. Even the Saltena, Bolivia's most famous empanada looking pastry comes from a woman who came from Salta, Argentina, to Tarija, Bolivia. 
So when I'm researching Mocochinchi, my favorite childhood and now adulthood drink, made from dehydrated whole peaches, sugar, and cinnamon, and I find that it's a "Bolivian"drink, I get really really excited. Bolivia Bella goes on to describe regional favorites. 
In Santa Cruz, you can buy the dehydrated peaches in the open markets. I snag a pound of dehydrated peaches because you really can't find these in the U.S. except maybe in Miami or Virginia, where there is a huge population of Bolivians. Using sliced dehydrated peaches don't really work for this particular drink because the fun is eating the reconstituted peaches afterwa…
