Keto Pizza Florentine

Pizza Florentine is what I'd call the perfect breakfast meal - a great new way to eat eggs & bacon. Apart from pepperoni, this is definitely one of my favourite pizza toppings. For this recipe, I used my brand new ultra thin and crispy pizza crust! Although it's not the first pizza recipe I've posted, it's the best crusts I've tried so far. Thin, crispy and the closest you can get to regular pizza.

Here are all the pizza recipes I've posted using different pizza crusts: Pizza Pepperoni (using cauli-rice), Low-Carb Thin Crust White Pizza (using almond, whey protein, egg & cheese) and Low-Carb Thin Crust Paleo Pizza (using almond & coconut flour, psyllium husk & whey protein powder and eggs).

Ingredients (makes 2 servings / small pizzas):

You can also use frozen & thawed spinach, about ⅔ cup. When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives).

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the pizza crust and Marinara sauce.
  2. Preheat the oven to 220 C / 430 F. Cut the bacon into small pieces. Grease a pan with ghee and add the bacon. Cook over a medium-high heat until crispy on both sides. Use a fork or a slotted spoon to place the bacon on a plate and set aside.
  3. Wash and drain the spinach and add to the pan where you cooked the bacon and season with salt. Cook until wilted. When done, take off the heat and set aside.
  4. Place the baked pizza crusts on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spread the marinara sauce on the pizza crusts. Add shredded mozzarella cheese - keep some mozzarella for later.
  5. Spread the spinach round the edges of the pizza crusts creating small wells in the middle. Add the crisped up bacon.
  6. Crack one egg in the middle of each pizza. Top with the remaining mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese. Add the cherry tomatoes on top.
  7. Place in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes or until the egg white is cooked and the egg yolk is still runny. Remove from the oven, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with fresh basil before serving. Enjoy!

Hi Martina,
I love your recipes! I love this way of eating, but I have a question.  I have been on a ketogenic diet for about 1 month.  I have been following all the tips and especially this site and maria's site as well as Keto Boss.  I haven't seen a lot of people talk about this, but I have a burning question. I am sleeping better, but I am exhausted every day.  I am especially exhausted around 2:00 and find myself drinking an extra coffee just to get through the day.  I also have a stomach ache.  Do you think this is just me getting keto adapted?  I take magnesium at night, and a very good multi vitamin.  I drink lots of water every day.  I can't figure out what may be my problem.  I wonder if you can offer any advice.  Thanks for everything that you do!  I will say that I try to only follow your menus now because one issue I have had is getting the ratio right...I tend to eat too many proteins, but I have only been following your recipes now for about 10 days so I am sure I have my ratios right.

Hi Linda, thank you for your kind words! There are several reasons for which you may feel tired.
- You may not be keto-adapted yet (you may still be depended on glucose) - How many carbs do you eat a day? What are your macros like? If you follow any of my diet plans, you may need to make small adjustments based on your needs.
- You may not be getting enough micronutrients (this may happen on a very low-carb diet). Do you get enough electrolytes (magnesium, sodium and potassium)?
- You may not be eating enough (protein or/and fat). Check out this tool: http://ketodietapp.com/Blog/page/KetoDiet-Buddy
- Hormone imbalance. Have you had your thyroid & adrenals checked?

To Linda -- You do not say why you are on a Keto diet, but if your previous diet was high in carbs and/or sugar, your body may be going through an adjustment period. I am diabetic, and it is quite common among diabetics to feel sluggish for a couple of weeks while their body adjusts to much fewer carbs in the diet.  It will pass and soon you will feel much better !
