Low Carb Pizza

On a low carbohydrate diet, the thing I miss most is pizza. But as with everything else, you just have to find a substitute.

 

Pizza Dough

  • 1 ½ cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (168 g)

  • 2 tbsp Cream Cheese (28 g)

  • ¾ cup Almond Flour (84 g)

  • 1 pinch Garlic Salt

Toppings

Season your crust before adding toppings.

  • Mozarella Cheese

  • Your favorite meats

  • Your favorite veggies

  • Low Carb Pizza Sauce

Directions

  1. Plan ahead for the pizza toppings that you will use. Pre-cook any raw ingredients so that they are ready to go. You’ll have some time to dice veggies while the crust is baking.

  2.  Put your baking sheet in the oven Preheat to 450 degrees F.

  3. In a microwave-safe bowl,combine mozzarella and cream cheese.

  4. Microwave for 15-30 seconds at a time, and stir with a fork until combined

  5. Once combined add in the almond flour. Knead the almond flour into the cheese and make it into a well-blended ball of dough.

  6. Place your ball of dough on a large piece of parchment paper. Use another piece of parchment paper and a rolling pin to flatten out your dough. I try to get my dough down to about 1/8″ to 1/4″ thick. (Save the second piece of parchment paper, you’ll need it later)

  7. Pinch the crust edges up to hold the toppings.

  8. Season your dough with basil and garlic.  Poke holes all around your crust and put in the oven.

  9. Bake the dough for 8-10 minutes until you get a nice dark brown bottom. Remove from the oven.

  10. Move your cooked dough onto the other  parchment paper

  11.  Start with the sauce and add your toppings.. top with cheese.

  12. Bake or broil your pizza for another few minutes until your cheese is melted and starts to brown.
