Italian Broccoli Flat Bread
Yield 4 Servings
- 1 head broccoli
- 2 pasture-raised eggs
- Large pinch of salt
- 1 tsp of oregano
- ½ tsp of basil
- 1 tbsp of grass-fed butter or ghee
- 1/2 cup of filtered water
- Raw grass-fed cheese, optional
Step #1: Pre-heat oven to 375° F.
Step #2: Remove some of the broccoli stem. Begin to chop the broccoli into chunks; depending on size broccoli head – you should hopefully get around 4 cups.
Step #5: Spread dough out evenly over baking sheet– can make as thick or thin as you like. The thinner, the more cracker like it will come out. Bake for about 30-35 minutes or until the crust is golden, crispy on the edges and cooked through the middle.
Step #6: Remove the crust from the oven. And enjoy.

Dr Jockers Comments:
One of the biggest things I hear when people follow my nutrition plan is the desire for breads. This is really good and is much like a garlic bread alternative or a cheesy (if you use the cheese) Italian bread.
Broccoli is rich in powerful sulfur compound anti-oxidants such as sulfuraphane, phenyl isothiocyanates and indole-3 carbonyls. These help the body to detoxify bad estrogens and neutralize hazardous free radicals.
The oregano and basil are also loaded with anti-microbial and anti-oxidant compounds. They give it the rich Italian bread smell. You could also add garlic to this to improve the flavor and give it a richer Italian feel.
