BEST Low Carb Pizza

I don’t have to miss pizza anymore!!  Yay!!   I’ve tried many low carb pizzas and this recipe from Fathead’s Tom Naughton is definitely my favorite: The Older Brother’s Oldest Son’s Faux Carb Pizza

Here’s my pizza following Tom’s recipe –

I could pick the pieces up and hold them just like traditional crust pizza.  Yes!

Low Carb Cheesie Crust Pizza

The Crust Ingredients:

  • 1-1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • 2 tbs cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • Garlic salt
  • Parchment paper and cookie sheet

Instructions:

  1. Put  mozzarella & cream cheese in a medium size  microwaveable bowl; Microwave for 1 min, stir and then another 30 sec, stir (very hot!)
  2. Stir in egg &  almond flour.
  3. Wet hands and spread “dough” thin on parchment paper. It should spread evenly with dough-like consistency (if “stringy” then your cheese has hardened too much—just put it back in the microwave for maybe another 20 seconds).
  4. Dock (poke rows of holes) with a fork to avoid bubbling.
  5. Sprinkle with garlic salt
  6. Put in 425 degree oven
  7. After about 8 minutes, check it and poke holes where any large bubbles may be.  Continue cooking for a total 12-14 min, or until slightly brown on top.

My crust looked like this before topping.  Please don’t judge my old beat up, burned up pan.  It’s heavy duty and works great.

I pre-cooked the sausage and veggies that I topped the pizza with.  It only stays in the oven long enough to heat and melt the cheese.   I added DelGrosso Fireworks sauce, mozzarella, sauteed onions, garlic and diced jalapenos, Italian sausage, pepperoni, fresh parsley (didn’t have basil *tear*).   I think that’s all.  Pop back in the oven to melt the cheese and enjoy!

Super-duper Delicious!!!
