There’s a lot of awesomeness going on in the name of this recipe. It’s almost sounds too good to be true: low carb – check! Pizza – check! Lasagna – check! Bowl meal – check! It’s even really healthy but I thought adding the word ‘Healthy’ to the title would probably push this recipe title over the already blurred edge.
It’s no secret that pizza makes me weak in the knees. Through the years no matter what diet I tried (and for the record I don’t really believe in diet’s anymore, rather making healthy lifestyle changes), but no matter what I tried, pizza would always break me.
I know I’m not alone in this. It’s pizza. It’s delicious! But it comes in so many different ways, so while I sadly admit that having a Detroit-style pizza from my favorite local pizza place is probably not good for my waistline (or wallet!), that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun creating other kinds of pizza.
Alright, I’m going to make a bold statement – this spiralized french bread pizza may be my favorite recipe that I’ve made so far. No joke. The slow roasted garlic schmeered on to melted butter and the patches of intense gorgonzola are melt-in-your mouth; amazing.
I recently roasted garlic for one of my how-to Tuesday’s and this dish is a perfect example of why you need to get rid of that pre-minced jar garlic and begin taking the time to use fresh garlic.
It’s no secret that pizza is my all-time favorite food if you’ve read some of my other entries (like these Prosciutto & Mozzarella Pizza Skewers). It’s basically a running joke with my friends; constantly posting pictures of pizza themed shirts, bags, key chains, and other various swag on my personal Facebook page all in the name of my love of pizza.
I have a confession. I spent about four days between last week and weekend eating like crap. Complete, total, crap. Pizza, chinese, mac and cheese, cupcakes, beer, wine – you name it, I ate it. And I paid for it. On Monday I stepped on the scale to survey the damage and had gained five pounds. FIVE!
