Who ever heard of losing weight AND eat pizza?! Now you can.

Who ever heard of a pizza without a bread base?! Now you have!

Who ever heard of eating two slices of pizza and feeling full without the sluggish, lethargic experience! Now it is here!

Who ever heard of a pizza so delicious that you wouldn’t even know it was good for you- unless you made it yourself! Here it is!

If the thought of eliminating wheat from the diet sends you into a tail spin, then you are not alone. We have grown up eating white bread, toast, sandwiches, white flour cakes and cookies. Wheat is in pretty much everything premade for us, and in all honesty, most people buy premade, microwaved meals these days. Wheat is in muffins, wheat is in microwaved meals, wheat is in sauces. You name it, the product likely contains wheat if man has anything to do with it. Weetbix, cereals, buns, wraps…

But…!!!!

Our grandparents ate wheat. There was nothing wrong with them?!!

Our parents ate wheat, there was nothing wrong with them?!!

Really? Is cancer really an hereditary disease?-That has been proven wrong on so many counts. What could it be? Could the food we are eating be a contributing factor….?? Could it ? Is food a common denominator? Food? I mean- we all eat food. And we all drink water. If wheat is ever more prevalent in the foods we eat, more so than ever beforecould it possibly be worth investigation? Start investigating for yourself…today.

But why pick on wheat? It is true that 40 years and more ago, people ate wheat regularly. But what has happened to the innocent little wheat in the late 40 years is nothing less than atrocious. More people need to be made aware of the gross genetic modification that began taking place only 40 years ago, and continued until only just recently without you or I being any the wiser. Genetic Modification without examining the effect on human consumption. Producing wheat that grows smaller, faster, and closer together. Wheat that is resistant to toxic chemicals and companies such as Monsanto owning strains of now ‘supergrain and super wheat’ resistant to their own pesticides and chemicals; designed to kill all other seeds in their path. As well as contaminating farmer’s land either side of ground owned by Monsanto, them bullying small authentic farmers into submission through lawsuits and loss of revenue, and blatantly spraying other fields with their genetically designed chemicals, pesticides and herbicides. Literally poisoning the land and people.

Start to do your own research and find out why our grandparents could eat wheat; but why we are now crazy to allow it in our homes, let alone eat the stuff- in whatever form it comes in.

It is actually not that hard to get wheat out of the diet. At first, it may seem overwhelming; but doesn’t everything new seem overwhelming at first? Take it one step at a time. The ball starts rolling pretty quickly and it can become a whole heap of fun experimenting with food again. Not to mention how fantastic a person feels when wheat is removed completely from the diet! A little creativity is needed- but then again we now have google, instagram, pinterest, facebook and loads of other sites where you can google wheatfree recipes! 

As opposed to having the mentality that we are missing out- flip it! Start to ponder on the exciting options that start to unfold when we take wheat out of the diet and replace it with wholefood filled with nutrition! The options are endless! All it takes is that imagination moving into first gear, and some visits to different cafes to get ideas! If you are on the coast try MarieAnita’s and The Paleo Cafe– both in Burleigh.

When we choose wheat free, we can still eat all our favourite recipes- we just throw out the wheat and substitute in wheat free options! And here is one of my favourites!!

Mouthwateringly delicious….PIZZA!!

I have used mozzarella cheese in my recipe. As a celiac I cannot tolerate the poor excuse for a beverage- milk – sold from the shops. Research cows milk and start understanding how nutritionally devoid pasturised cows milk is…-Make your own informed decision here too. You might opt to stop drinking milk from cows also- but one step at a time ;).. I can enjoy a little hard cheese as a celiac as lactose content is not so high. If you want to know a great and easy healthy alternative to cows milk- HERE is a recipe for how to make your own nut mylk. Easy. If you can find raw milk- usually sold at markets or the organic shop- get that. Raw milk is the real mccoy.

The base for my pizza is made from cauliflower, predominantly. I kid you not and please dont knock it till you try it. We have to give stuff a go before we turn our nose up- give it a go! I didnt believe how amazing this was going to turn out! It was a hit! Noone knows what its made of unless you tell them! Tell them after!

What you need to make it work:

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 3/4 cup virgin coconut oil (never olive oil as you are going to cook it)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 cups shredded mozarella cheese
  • Your favourite pizza toppings- go wild! spinach, onion, fresh herbs, meats, nuts, pineapple, capers, anchovies, sundried tomatoes, capsicum,garlic, mushrooms- use loads of colour! …. the list goes on.
  • Tomato paste. You can buy it but make sure you buy a clean tomato paste like Leggos. Use one canister- or two if you really like a tomatoey flavour Alternatively you can use a delicious pesto (homemade preferably too) for a more nutty pizza.
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese.

What to do to:

BASE:

  • Preheat oven to approx 120C-140C.
  • Blend the cauliflower head in a powerful blender. I use a vitamix. If you do not have a blender- you can cook the cauliflower in water. But the issue here is you lose most of the good nutrients in cooking however it an option for people without blenders.
  • The vitamix with break the cauliflower up into a wet mush; mash if you have cooked it.
  • In a bowl add the cauliflower with 1/4 cup coconut oil, eggs and 1 cup of mozzarella cheese; season with Himalayan salt, pepper and any herbs you might like in your crust. I often use cayenne pepper to aid with thermagenic digestion.  Mix until it is blended with no chunks.

Lightly coat a pizza pan or large rimmed baking sheet with coconut oil.

Pour the cauliflower mixture onto the pizza pan. This is the base for your pizza. Press it into a pizza base not more than 2 cms thick. Mould the edges higher to form a thick crust pizza. I’m a thin crust pizza girl but try this with this style first, before you go all thin on me. Trust me. :)

Bake for approx 20 minutes, or until lightly golden brown:

Remove pizza base from the oven and start to decorate as you would a pizza from the shops or made from home! ie with all your favourite ingredients!

TOPPING

  • Start with your pizza base. Use the tomato base, pesto base or whatever base you like for your pizza. I used a traditional tomato base for this pizza- and used the leggos tomato paste.
  • While the pizza base was browning you could have been cooking up any meats, browning nuts, sauteeing onions and garlic- if you like those on your pizza so they are ready to just add once the pizza base is ready.
  • There are no rules to pizzas- add the ingredients you love.

I used baby spinach, sauteed onions and garlic, sliced mushroom, celery, pepitas and sunflower seeds, capsicums, fresh pineapple- pretty much whatever was in my fridge at the time. Loads of greens. If you are not a cheese fan- you don’t have to add all that cheese- I often have cheese free pizza – on the topping. In the base it is necessary to bind the cauliflower. Keep that in mind :)

Pizzas are meant to be messy and fun! SO make them fun!

This is a fun pizza to me!

To make it even more crazy loco….

wheatfree pizza www.vashte.com

I add poached free range paprika chicken, cayenne pepper, the remaining mozzarella cheese, fresh oregano and chives from my balcony garden, H salt, pepper and drizzle with some- not all- of the coconut oil. Just use what you think necessary. The oil is for browning. You don’t need it all.

Tip- add less cheese on top;  and add more if you think you need it once it starts melting. We can always add, we can’t remove once its on and melted. Nothing worse than a typical American style over cheesed pizza. Gross.

Pop pizza back in the oven and bake until the mozzarella melts. Approx 10-15 minutes. Voila. Heaven by pizza!

Guilt free, delicious pizza! 

Have you even wondered why some people can eat an entire family sized pizza from the pizza shop and still be hungry? 

It is actually not that uncommon. Why. The pizza base from a traditional pizza is wheat based. Wheat is now devoid from any beneficial nutritional content for human beings. We are overfed and undernourished which is why so many of us are getting fatter and fatter, but we are still hungry…we are  undernourished. We think that if we eat MORE we will feel full. We wont- if we keep eating that stuff they call ‘food’ out there. Most if it is wheat based. We will still feel hungry, we will still eat more, and we will still grow fatter and fatter if our choice in food types does not change. 

It can be as simple as swopping our ingredients. It is not that hard- we just need someone to show us.

I hope I have shown you an option for pizza that will blow your mind and taste buds! My 120kg fiance can eat 2 family sized pizzas from the pizza shop in one sitting. He could only finish three pieces of this pizza before we was chocker block full.!! The difference here is that this pizza is made from ‘wholefoods’. Wholefoods are foods that are made largely without man messing with them. So these foods have the nutritional content that our bodies crave. We dont feel heavy and lethargic after eating wholefoods. We feel satiated, and great! We feel energised! Food is supposed to be our fuel- why are we filling up on the cheapest, poorest quality fuel- not designed to run our motors, nor feed or bodies or minds.

This pizza is exploding with flavour and goodness and total yumminess that you just won’ t believe it till you try it! Your body will love you for it and your mind will wonder how it is possible!

Many of my followers are vegan or vegetarian- so omit the animal ingredients and adapt the recipe to suit your dietary requirements. We are all looking for health. We can all learn from each other. Please feel free to play with this recipe; to share it; to adapt it; and definitely let me know what yours turned out like!

If you would like to have my personal wheat-free weight-loss plan; send me an email at info@vashte.com. I will share my 7 day fat-loss wheat-free (low sugar) plan with you for just  $97.00 Aus.

I eat pizza. I dont miss out. I’m lean. I’m fit. I’m filled with energy.

You could be too!!
