The Imposter

Hello my ducklings! The weightloss has been slow and painful. Due to my complete inability to keep butter out of my face I've decided to go in a different direction. So today I tried something a little different: Pizza.

Not just any pizza though (that would be silly wouldn't it?), but a low-carb pizza. Dear refined carbs, I miss you! What I don't miss, though, is all the bloat and water weight I've dropped since I started this thing. Sigh. I guess you can't argue with science...or results.

Imposter Pizza

1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
3 eggs
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp water

1/4 cup tomato sauce, watered down
1 60g garlic cheese chicken sausage, cut in the manner of your satisfaction and fried
1/2 cup mini fresh mozzarella balls
fresh basil I stupidly forgot to get this, which is why mine has none. But basil is good for you, you should eat it.

~Mix all the crust ingredients together in a bowl until well integrated.
~Grease a frying pan just enough to prevent sticking; note--the larger your pan, the larger and thinner your crust will be. This recipe gives you enough to make either 1 largish pizza or 2 small personal pizzas.
~Pour the crust batter into the pan and cover, cooking for 5-6 minutes until the crust is solid and cooked through. The thinner you spread the batter, the crispier the crust will be.
~Remove the crust from the pan carefully and lay it on a baking tray.
~Spread the tomato sauce over the crust, and top with cheese, sausage, and basil.
~Bake in the oven at 400˚F until the cheese is melted and the crust is crispy.
