Today I have a recipe for you, a pizza that is actually good for you and totally guilt free, you can eat this one as often as you want since it is mostly a perfect protein from the eggs and the raw toppings are your fresh veggies with perks!
Forget the fattening and make-you-puffy-bread dough normal pizza sits on, you don't need it, it only makes you bloated and puffy literally, it has no nutritional value and is a false carbohydrate. It makes you fat and feel guilty when you eat it, but you have a choice!
I want to talk about food.....FOOD is not just ''things we eat'', foods have alchemical effects upon our bodies and spirits, can make is ill or well. This will be a series coming up.
I am embarking once again on a healthier raw foods diet, as I used to be. But now that my taste buds have experimented and enjoyed some of the most wonderful savoury flavors on the planet, they are quite spoiled. So I must be very creative and experiment until I have a good varied menu of foods I love that are both tasty and raw or mostly raw.
For the beginning of a cooked foods person there is a period of "transition" where we add more raw in but still eat some cooked things, and I personally love this phase and wish to remain on it for a while, and I will, until the raw foods compel me to go further. The cravings for cooked simply disappear, thank god.
But one thing I know is deadly for the body is bread, one of the most delicious and loved foods on the planet, is bad for the body. Unless of course you are eating the living sprouted varieties, but schools of thought vary as to the GMO of such grains anymore. But for me personally, I know my body and brain does terribly on bread though my taste buds dance for joy with it.....it simply must go. I cannot have anything made with flour.
One thing I invented in my creative ventures as a home chef, is the Pizza Omelette. I love pizza, good fresh pizza, and omelettes. One day I made an omelette and I kept dressing it until eventually it turned out looking like a pizza and ''my famous breakfast pizza'' was born lolol. I'm sure I am not the only one who has done this, but still I did create it on the spot and have been playing with different recipes of this for a while.
In my transition phase of going raw, I find I still like hot foods and eggs. I also love egg whites raw in my smoothies, and recently discovered, love it as the dominate egg part for an omelette, more egg white then yolk.
I've been craving pizza lately, but want to do this raw so I put the two together and O.M.G. is this wonderful! I was cooking the same toppings before, tomatoes, etc..... but I want living foods and all of these toppings can be eaten raw and fresh and it definitely satisfied my pizza craving!.....So I made this today and decided to share my Raw-Toppings Pizza Omelette and here goes. Just remember you saw it here first because I just invented it. ;D
You will need the following for two people or one pizza foodie freak lol:
~5 egg whites and two yolks from those, whisked in a bowl
~some chopped onion
~some chopped peppers, today I used a poblano
~fresh garlic finely minced
and the rest are purely the toppings of choice which you can totally make up for yourself:
~2 kinds of cheese of your choice, I love asiago and parmesean, the real imported ones
~olives of choice, pitted
~heirloom or cherry tomatoes finely chopped
~quality Himalayan, Celtic or other salt and fresh ground pepper
~red pepper flakes
Whisk the 5 egg whites and 2 yolks, or you can eliminate the yolk altogether, in a bowl and grind in your salt and pepper, some oregano and set aside.
In an omelette pan add a bit of olive oil or butter, and saute the onions and pepper until soft.
Once they are done add the fresh minced garlic, you don't want the garlic to get browned. Then add the eggs. You want a thin layer of 0melette. Cook it well, until nice and brown on the bottom and done on top, then turn if off when done.
While this is cooking chop your tomatoes and prepare the other toppings. Mix the chopped tomatoes, fresh basil, oregano, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, olives, whatever you have chosen for your toppings, in a bowl. I added a dash of olive oil but its not needed.
Grate your cheeses and set aside.
Add the tomatoe bowl contents onto the well cooked omelette.
"Slice" into quarters..............Your Pizza omelette is done, you just need to add your seasonings as in a pizza shop!
This is not finger food lolol, it is eaten with knife and fork, and is delicioso!!
I love this, and I can't believe I refrained from eating the whole thing. I'm going to make another one tomorrow, thank goodness I bought lots of tomatoes today!
I hope you enjoy!
