No Carb Pizza

Crust

  • 8 oz cream cheese (full of fat kind – at room temperature)
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • some fresh ground black pepper (i twisted the grinding mechanism about 20 times)
  • some garlic powder (~1/2 tsp)
  • some onion powder (~1/2 tsp)

After you’ve mixed all of that goodness, butter a 9×13 pan real good and poor the “dough” in. Bake 17 minutes at 350 degrees F (make sure the edges are browned). After that, let it cool 10 minutes (they emphasize letting it cook completely, I’m not sure why but I listened and it worked out great!)

Toppings

After the dough is cooled, add 1/2 cup of the sauce of your choice (Trader Joe’s marinara for us + whatever seasonings you want; I used more garlic powder, basil, parsley and oregano), 1 cup mozzarella (more if you are a cheese lover, but 1 cup was good), and toppings (I used regular pepperonis). Bake it for another 8-10 minutes at 400 degrees F or until the cheese is melted. Yum!!!

1/3 this recipe = 510 calories and 4.5 carbs, but it will vary with whatever you choose to add on!

Tips for cooking the perfect No Carb Pizza

  • Do not overcook this pizza, no matter how tempted you are to brown the crust a little more. it burns on the bottom!
  • Let your cream cheese come to room temperature before mixing the crust! Other wise it’s clumpy and isn’t as nice when the pizza it cooked.
  • Less cheese is better. I put extra mozzarella on the second time I made this and it was too much with the cheesy crust.
  • BUTTER THE PAN REALLY WELL!!
  • Make sure you loosen up the edges before trying to get the pizza out of the pan. It does stick a little!
