    yes it was! Took some time to bake, but was super easy…you could make this :)

  4. Jennifer Toepfer says:

    Are you sure??? You know my abilities. …or lack there of….:)

  5. Deion Larson Gerhard says:

    How many eggs? You can do it with Cauliflower also.

  6. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    Yes I am sure Jenn, you could easily make this I promise :)

  7. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    1 egg Deion, sorry…I changed it in the recipe, thanks for catching that! I think cauliflower would work just fine…just cook it and then rice it and proceed with the recipe!

  8. Debbie Banks says:

    Omg! I’m pretty sure this is going to be my new favorite dish! I’m a huge fan of potatoes!

  9. Jan Martin Whitlinger says:

    Can’t wait to try this, Halle! What would you suggest to get this more “in line” for a protein type? Just add meat to the topping instead of the tomatoes?

  10. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    Yes Jan, I would add some pesto chicken to it. It is a sturdy crust, so it could handle the weight of the chicken just fine and still be a piece of pizza.

  11. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    Jan also you could do this (this is what I do as a protein type). I cut the pie into 4 servings and then the carb count is 16 grams and I count that slice as my carb and then add my protein (4-5 oz of chicken) to complete the meal. Yesterday I had my eggs for breakfast and then a piece of this pizza and that was my complete breakfast

  12. Andrea Shink says:

    looks so yum & easy, too!

  13. Julia Tipple Farver says:

    Uh, could I please place a delivery order Halle?…this recipe looks amazing. Too bad the above pizza pic wasn’t a scratch ‘n sniff option. Yum. I’ll let ya know what my fam thinks of it. Great idea, it would make a great breakfast pizza too. :)

  14. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    Hey Julia, your humor cracks me up! :)

  15. Michelle Fegley says:

    All I can say is that it took a whole lot of control not to eat the whole pie! I dont like tomatoes so I added green peppers, red onions, and broccoli! Thanks for another great recipe Halle!!

  16. stefanyss24 says:

    what kind of coconut oil do i use? extra virgin or the non extra virgin 

  17. Jill says:

    Just made this and it was delish! Only problem I has though was that the middle was a little soggy (not much) and the “slice” of pizza wouldn’t come out whole. Any suggestions on what I did wrong would be greatly appreciated because my 5 year old loved it along with my junk food loving husband! Even with the sogginess in the middle.

    1. Halle Cottis says:

      Try making the crust a little thinner next time and be sure to squeeze out all excess water out of the potatoes too.
