@ktorn Be careful not to eat too much protein (.8 to 1.2 g per pound of lean body mass is ideal). It will take you out of ketosis, as your body can break it down and produce glucose. I did a year of vegetarian ketosis as I was having problems with hypoglycemia. Learning to eat low carb vegetables (leafy greens, cauliflower, etc.) with fatty sauces (butter, hollandaise, olive oil, melted cheese) is really helpful.
You should try it with a really hot preheated pan. Especially the top lid, as the radiant heat will make the cheese bubbly.
Heres a calzone I did like that on the stove, with a combi-cooker frying pan as a lid, and a shallow cast iron skillet that fit on the bottom. Flipping it over every few minutes. And a focassia flatbread. I've done pizzas where I start them in really hot cast irons to get them bubbly, then add sauce and cheese and finish them under the broiler or the electric toaster (set to broil).
Works great on a campfire too.
@mulrich Did you feel like the maple syrup made a difference to the flavor of the final pizza, or did it improve the texture? The pizza dough recipes that I use don't call for sugar, but as I understand it its mostly just to get the yeast going.
Note, another good use for maple syrup is on the ham itself, cook some up on the stove with the syrup before transferring it to the pizza (this works well for TVP and vegan ham for those so inclined).
I have two friends that did PhD's in Physics in Scandinavia (forget which countries). Totally free. It's definitely possible...although I believe they both had their undergrad done in the US. That being said, Physics is one of the PhD programs that you can usually get stipends for in the US.
