The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills coach has an all-season crowd-pleasing favorite.BY ALESANDRA DUBIN
Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave may maintain a lean and mean physique by keeping herself responsible to the same principles she shares with clients of her All in by Teddi accountability coaching program — but that doesn’t mean she’s sworn off pizza for good.
In fact, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills coach has shared a Mediterranean pizza recipe she swears by from the healthy food delivery service she uses, Gracefully Fed. Think of it, Teddi says, as “a total guilty pleasure — but with zero guilt.” Sold!
The recipe calls for a cauliflower crust. “I use one that contains a bit of dairy when I feel like flexing,” Teddi says. You’ll also need hummus. (Teddi is allergic to sesame so she makes sure hers is tahini free when she makes it at home. For the Med-inspired topping, gather fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, kalamata olives, and arugula.
To make the tahini-free hummus, you’ll need:
1 can of garbanzo beans (drained)
1 to 2 cloves of garlic
1 to 2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 to 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. paprika
Salt to taste
Blend in a food processor. “I like mine a bit lemony, so I add lemon juice until it gets a creamy consistency,” Teddi says.
To make the pizza, spread the hummus over the crust. Add the arugula and the rest of the ingredients. Add salt and dill to your liking.
That’s it! Eat and enjoy — guilt free.
