Pizza is my favorite food. I used to work in pizza places, then managed some, then even co-owned two. I LOVE pizza! All kinds. My favorite around here is Three Brothers. We (used to) get Papa Johns a lot, as they’re nearby. Dan’s favorite (but my least) is Dominoes. I also like Ledo’s. Thick, thin, crispy, chewy… it’s all good!
Now that we are eating low carb… the one thing I miss most is pizza. I don’t really miss bread or pasta. But I do miss pizza! I’ve tried several online crust recipes and they were awful. I tried one on Linda’s site and so far it’s the best.
I woke up this morning craving pizza for some reason, so I made some and remembered to take photos. It’s a pretty easy recipe.
In a bowl, mix an egg and a handful of cheese and a bit of garlic powder. We always have cheese in the house- I’ve used mexican 4 cheese, cheddar, and mozarella. Use whatever is your favorite.
Spread it out on a stone if you have one, or a very well greased cookie sheet. I’ve tried well greased foil and it was awful. It sticks and the whole point is a real crust. It doesn’t take like real crust if half of it is stuck to the foil.
This is the egg/cheese mixture before baking. It looks like mac and cheese, but it’s not. 😉
Bake at 450 for 5 minutes, then turn down the heat and bake at 400 for 5 more minutes.
2) Top the cooked crust with your favorite toppings.
Pizza sauce is the only real carb source here. Mine has 6 carbs per serving and I only used about 1/2 a serving.
I added a handful of cheese, and 4 peperoni. I would have also added veggies, but I didn’t feel like cutting them up.
Put back in the center of the oven on Hi Broil for 5 minutes.
Here is my finished product:
Doesn’t it look scrumptious?!
It has a bread-like crust consistency where you can pick it up and eat it by the slice in your hand. And it takes like pizza, not like egg. It’s crazy to me that eggs and cheese can taste like pizza crust, but it does!
Enjoy! And be blessed! ~
