Holiday parties, family get togethers, all of the food and drinks, everywhere. That just about sums up the holiday season, right? It’s rough. To top it off, most of my family and friends live locally so there are a lot of get togethers I must attend. If we all lived far away, it would be …
Pizza Fries? Kind of. Of course I would take full on gluten fluffy crust, fatty meats and regular pepperoni any day, but when you don’t have that many macros to work with, you can get creative to kind of satiate your cravings, even a little.
Saved decent carbs on my low carb day but craving pizza called for this eat-with-fork creation:
Preheat oven at 350🌡 and then prepare in a foil-lined and sprayed oil baking dish:
[base] pre-steamed sweet potato (actual yellow ones, the real ones, not orange like many stores like you to think) slices, pre-made Cauliflower rice (dry out Cauli rice as much as you can with paper towel)
[layer 1] garlic marinara, Trader Joe’s lite shredded mozzarella
[layer 2] 93/7 ground beef and turkey pepperoni
Baked at 35🌡 for 12 minutes, broiled for 3 minutes.
Macros: 42c 11f 28p – my sweet potato ratio was higher than Cauli rice, can easily switch ratio for lower carb.
Verdict? Honestly, you can’t really go wrong with meat, cheese and potatoes. Unless you use fat free cheese, then you most definitely can go wrong because it has no flavor.
