THE GREATEST LOW-CARB PIZZA OF ALL-TIME - Cooking and Recipes

It's possible to trade profitably on the Forex, the nearly $2 trillion worldwide currency exchange market. But the odds are against you, even more so if you don't prepare and plan your trades. According to a 2014 Bloomberg report, several analyses of retail Forex trading, including one by the National Futures Association (NFA), the industry's regulatory body, concluded that more than two out of three Forex traders lose money. This suggests that self-education and caution are recommended. Here are some approaches that may improve your odds of taking a profit. Prepare Before You Begin Trading Because the Forex market is highly leveraged -- as much as 50 to 1 -- it can have the same appeal as buying a lottery ticket: some small chance of making a killing. This, however, isn't trading; it's gambling, with the odds long against you. A better way of entering the Forex market is to carefully prepare. Beginning with a practice account is helpful and risk-free. While you're trading in your practice account, read the most frequently recommended Forex trading books, among them Currency Forecasting: A Guide to Fundamental and Technical Models of Exchange Rate Determination, by Michael R. Rosenberg is short, not too sweet and highly admired introduction to the Forex market. Forex Strategies: Best Forex Strategies for High Profits and Reduced Risk, by Matthew Maybury is an excellent introduction to Forex trading. The Little Book of Currency Trading: How to Make Big Profits in the World of Forex, by Kathy Lien is another concise introduction that has stood the test of time. All three are available on Amazon. Rosenberg's book, unfortunately, is pricey, but it's widely available in public libraries. "Trading in the Zone: Master the Market with Confidence, Discipline and a Winning Attitude," by Mark Douglas is another good book that's available on Amazon, and, again, somewhat pricey, although the Kindle edition is not. Use the information gained from your reading to plan your trades before plunging in. The more you change your plan, the more you end up in trouble and the less likely that elusive forex profit will end up in your pocket. Diversify and Limit Your Risks Two strategies that belong in every trader's arsenal are: Diversification: Traders who execute many small traders, particularly in different markets where the correlation between markets is low, have a better chance of making a profit. Putting all your money in one big trade is always a bad idea. Familiarize yourself with ways guaranteeing a profit on an already profitable order, such as a trailing stop, and of limiting losses using stop and limit orders. These strategies and more are covered in the recommended books. Novice traders often make the mistake of concentrating on how to win; it's even more important to understand how to limit your losses. Be Patient Forex traders, particularly beginners, are prone to getting nervous if a trade does not go their way immediately, or if the trade goes into a little profit they get itchy to pull the plug and walk away with a small profit that could have been a significant profit with little downside risk using appropriate risk reduction strategies. In "On Any Given Sunday," Al Pacino reminds us that "football is a game of inches." That's a winning attitude in the Forex market as well. Remember that you are going to win some trades and lose others. Take satisfaction in the accumulation of a few more wins than losses. Over time, that could make you rich!

THE GREATEST LOW-CARB PIZZA OF ALL-TIME


THE GREATEST LOW-CARB PIZZA OF ALL-TIME-
I literally cannot express how EXCITED I am to share this recipe.
I have spent hours, days, weeks, months..TRYING to come up with the perfect versatile low-carb dough recipe. I have wasted countless bags of almond flour, coconut flour, yeast packets, olive oil…you name it.
But today, knowing it was all worth it, I have ZERO regrets.
This pizza is DELICIOUS. The dough feels like real dough after it rises, it bakes like real dough..it’s just perfect. The key ingredient in this recipe is Vital Wheat Gluten.
Now don’t freak-out and rush to leave an angry comment saying: “I THOUGHT THIS RECIPE WAS LOW-CARB!” ..Hear me out.
Vital Wheat Gluten is the Gluten protein extracted from flour. It is essentially carb-less. It’s the protein that gives bread structure. IT’S A PROTEIN not a carb my friends. YES if you have a gluten allergy you should avoid using it but if you, like me, eat low-carb/keto and track macros but never were allergic to wheat, just had an issue over-eating carbs and sometimes got a bit bloated after a very carb-heavy meal… then Vital Wheat Gluten is 100% OK to have on a low-carb diet and WILL NOT knock you out of ketosis. It’s actually a pretty fantastic, cool little ingredient.
That said, I have also included another version of the recipe that IS gluten-free and does not use vital wheat gluten. Instead, Xanthan Gum and Psyllium Husksare used to give the crust a similar texture to real dough.
Both versions tasted great (I had my family all taste test them). Everyone liked both equally but the vital wheat gluten version is much more similar to traditional pizza crust if that’s what you are going for. If you don’t mind your dough being slightly less “fluffy” then the xanthan/psyllium version is perfect.
Now that we’ve got all that out of the way..let’s get on to the recipe for the best low-carb pizza you will ever experience.

*Note* The xanthan/psyllium version looks smaller in photos because I only made half the amount of the total recipe where-as the vital wheat gluten version is the full recipe. 
Serves: 1 medium thick crust pizza OR 1 large thin crust pizza

Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup warm water OR 1/2 cup warm water IF using xanthan gum/psyllium husks
  • 1 1/2 tsp dry active yeast (I used quick-rise yeast)
  • 1 tsp white sugar (THIS WILL BE EATEN BY THE YEAST, IT IS NECESSARY, it will not affect the final product)
  • 1/4 cup(60g) 14% sour cream
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups(168g) almond flour
  • 1/2 cup(64g) Vital Wheat Gluten OR 1 tbsp xanthan gum & 1/4 cup groundpsyllium husks
  • 1/4 cup(30g) coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1-2tsp Italian spices (optional)
Directions:
  1. In a large bowl, add your warm water, yeast and sugar. Let sit for about 5min.
  2. While waiting, combine all of your dry ingredients in a separate bowl (whisk with a fork), set aside.
  3. In another small bowl, microwave your sour cream for roughly 20-25s (just until slightly warm).
  4. Once your yeast has foamed(make sure it is not old!), add your olive oil and sour cream and stir together.
  5. Next stir in your flour until a dough begins to form.
  6. Use your hands to knead the dough for roughly 3-4min.
  7. Form the dough into a neat ball and place in a greased bowl. Cover with saran wrap and place somewhere warm for 40min (I usually heat my oven to a low-temp for a while before-hand then shut it off and leave the dough in there either with the door open or closed depending on how hot it is)
  8. After 40min, pre-heat your oven to 450*F(Or 400*F for thicker dough).
  9. Remove the dough from the bowl(it should now be about 1.5x its original size or larger(less if using the xanthan gum/psyllium version)).
  10. On a baking sheet lined with parchment OR greased with oil, roll out into desired shape and thickness(I would have done mine just a little thinner if I had the option to do it over!)
  11. Brush with olive oil(optional) and either..top with whatever your heart desires then bake for about 10-12min or until lightly browned for a THIN CRUST. OR for a thicker crust, bake at a lower temp(350-400*F) until partially cooked, then add your topping and place back in the oven at 450*F to finish cooking! Enjoy!
I topped mine with low-carb barbecue sauce, barbecue chicken breast chunks, basil, oregano, garlic powder, grated parmesan cheese and mozzarella.
