Weekend Low Carb Pizza, not quite the same as the Louis XIII Pizza !

Dear friend and fellow blogger as I post this today (13 May), along with many of you I am still having problems with leaving comments on so many blogs. Many of you have kindly suggested ways in which this situation may be fixed but alas not for me (and I suspect many others), it is very frustrating, and I do hope that blogger will sort it out soon, refer to this post here

In the meantime I hope you will enjoy todays post ...

Goodness me!
Did you know that the most expensive pizza in the world costs $12,000 dollars. 
The Louis XIII Pizza is certainly the most expensive pizza globally, and the amount of time required to make this masterpiece partly explains why it is so costly. It takes about three days to make a perfect Louis XIII Pizza. Another factor that results in the high cost is the list of ingredients used to make this wonder happen.

The dough itself is made using Arabian fur, which is mixed with pink salt dust and thus the crust has to be made 72 hours before adding toppings. Different types of caviar, organic buffalo mozzarella, different types of cheese, prawns from Cilento, mantis shrimp, and lobster from Norway are used as toppings. No wonder an entire Louis XIII Pizza comes at a whopping price of about $12000, although one has the option of purchasing half of it at $6000.

I know a very nice and reasonably priced low carb pizza recipe
that is great for the weekend 😋 and can be cooked in the oven or grill

Serves Two
11g net carbs per serving
225 ml (125 g) coconut flour
3 tbsp. (25 g) ground psyllium husk powder
½ tsp (2.5 g) baking powder
1½ tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
4 tbsp. olive oil or coconut oil
475 ml water, hot but not boiling
275 g fresh mozzarella cheese
175 g cherry tomatoes
2 tbsp. fresh basil
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 pinch salt
1 pinch ground black pepper
For even more flavour, feel free to spice up the flatbread dough with extra seasonings. Garlic powder, oregano or red pepper flakes make the pizza-style base crust even more delicious.
The absorbency of coconut flour and psyllium husk changes a lot depending on what brand you use. This means that it’s best to add the hot water little by little, until you reach the desired consistency. Start with 3/4 cup and add more as you go, if needed.
If you added too much water and the dough is sticky, just add some more coconut flour to absorb the liquid. If the dough is not sticky enough, add more water.
Recipe instructions are here

Low Carb Flours
If you are just starting a low carb diet/lifestyle you may feel confused with which low carb flours to use. You may never have used any of them before and how to use them properly can be daunting. Low carb flours do not behave like wheat flour, and how to use them in your old regular high carb recipes is a common question.

A $12,000 pizza strikes me as an obscenity. Conspicuous consumption at its worst. Yours looks much more to my admittedly plebian tastes.

Tom said...

...sadly, in my mind low carb pizza misses the mark!

Rose said...

That expensive pizza does not even sound good....the money spent on it would be a good down payment on a long arm quilting machine! LOL

Se ve muy rica. Gracias por la receta. Te mando un beso.

Interesting Jan but I'm not that fond of pizza but I will eat them if necessary.

Lorrie said...

A $12,000 pizza seems immoral to me - and I wasn't tempted by the list of ingredients, either. Give me a normal pizza any day!

linda said...

A silly amount of money for a pizza, but this one looks great. Have a great weekend.

It's amazing how so much of what is called luxury doesn't even sound (or look) appealing. The expensive toppings might be delicacies when they're prepared in dishes that suit their flavors and textures, but the Louis XIII pizza just sounds like an expensive novelty. I'd rather eat the cheese and toppings from a local pizza joint.

I can not imagine a 12,000 pizza. WOW!
Take care, have a great weekend!

Sounds like a good pizza. We make our own too, although we do purchase the crust, a tapioca crust that is very tasty. Usually our pizza has mushrooms, spinach and cheese, garlic and onion, maybe tomato and sometimes asparagus. Delicious. We also make pan toasted corn tortilla wraps using asparagus, etc. Soooo tasty. Have a super weekend!

A few of my blogger friends have had to turn off ad blocker in order to leave comments. I do hope they fix it soon.

Anne (cornucopia) said...

Oooh, this looks delicious.

I'm having problems leaving comments, too. Sometimes Google shows me as anonymous, even though I'm logged in, and I don't always remember to tack on "Anne" at the end, so people will at least have a clue about who left the comment. It looks like on your blog, it will show that it's from me. There doesn't seem to be any pattern to the problem.

It's me said...

Mmmmmmm…yammie happy weekend love Ria 🍀💗🍀

Anne (cornucopia) said...

P.S. Sometimes Google is putting comments I get into my spam folder. I didn't realize that at first. Now I always check it, to make sure comments that are not spam aren't in it. I wish Google would fix their problems with blogger comments. It's been going on for a few weeks, if not longer.

Happy Saturday!

Pizza tonight will be perfect. The weather here has been so very nice. A treat for dinner will top the day.

Jeanie said...

I get hostile paying $15 for a pizza!

Iris Flavia said...

We make our own, costs are love and yum.

Teresa said...

Interesante pizza. Besos.

Martha said...

We can never say no to pizza here!
