Pizza (Low Carb)

Lately I have been craving pizza. I found this low carb version online and it is one of several that I am excited to try! It came out so great! The crust is such a great bread substitute (check out that gorgeous golden brown crust below!!!) and this recipe definitely filled my pizza craving! I am so glad that I doubled the recipe because Todd had seconds and we have enough leftover for both of our lunches tomorrow. The nutritional information below is only for the crust. Can you believe only 3.9 carbs per serving?!

Pizza (Low Carb)

by Lindsey
Keywords: bake bread entree low-carb pizza

Ingredients (6 personal pizzas)
    Crust Ingredients:
    • 2 8 oz pkgs softened regular cream cheese
    • 3 extra large eggs or 4 regular eggs
    • 1/2 tsp pepper
    • 2 tsp garlic powder
    • 1/2 c grated parmesan
    Topping Ingredients:
    • 1 c tomato sauce (I used an organic brand that had only 3 carbs per serving.)
    • 3 c shredded mozzarella
    • Toppings (I used mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, olives and chicken while Todd had pepperoni and chicken.)
    • Pizza seasoning
    Preheat the oven to 350* and line three baking sheets with foil.
    Spray the foil with nonstick spray.
    Combine all the crust ingredients with an electric mixer. It should be the consistency of thick pancake batter.
    Spread into 6 equal circles on the baking sheets. It is approximately a little more than one ladleful each.
    Bake the crusts for 12-15 minutes or until they are golden brown on the edges. If it bubbles up, just stick a few holes in it with a fork.
    Cool at least 10 minutes before putting the toppings on.
    Spread the tomato sauce on top of the cooled crust and then sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
    Add whatever toppings you desire.
    Sprinkle the tops of each pizza with pizza seasoning.
    Bake for another 8-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the pizza is heated through.
