Low Carb Pizza

My husband and I have recently started with a low-carb lifestyle. I am doing it for health reasons as my body does much better eating less carbs and he is really doing it to be supportive and lose a few pounds (few ha!)

I kept hearing about “fat-head pizza” and wanted to know more about it.  Essentially, fathead pizza uses cheese as the crust.  I was skeptical at best.  When I first tried it, Russell hadn’t yet fully joined me in this way of life, but again, being the supportive husband he ate fat head pizza with me!  Stay tuned for his verdict!

The recipe I used was here.  I love how the recipes are laid out on Ruled.me with The Preparation and The Execution.

Ingredients

Crust

2 cups Mozzarella Cheese

3/4 cup Almond Flour

1 TBSP psyllium husk powder

3 TBSP cream cheese

1 egg

1 TBSP Italian seasoning

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

Toppings

1 cup mozzarella cheese

1/2 cup Rao’s Tomato Sauce or Pizza Sauce

16 pepperoni slices

Sprinkled Italian Seasoning

Directions

Preheat oven to 400F.

Put the cheeses (mozz and cream) in a microwave safe dish.  (I added the cream cheese to this the second time I made it – because it is easier to mix in if you melt it too…the original recipe didn’t call for this).  I do batches of 30 seconds at a time.

Microwave the cheese until fully melted, but not brown.  Then add the egg, use your hands (if it isn’t too hot – though you don’t want it to really COOL down) to mix it all up.  Amazingly, it seems like DOUGH.

Add the dry ingredients.  Using your hands, knead the dough to form a round ball.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat.  Put some olive oil on the paper or silpat.  Press the dough out to form the pizza.  I sometimes use another piece of parchment paper and smush it between the two.  (As you can see, I used a pizza stone with no parchment of silpat….this works good – if you oil it good).

Bake for 10 minutes on one side.

Flip it and bake an additional 2-4 minutes.

Remove and top as desired.

The sauce I use:

Bake an additional 3-5 minutes, until browned and melty.

If you cut the pizza into 6 slices each slice is 3.2 g net carbs (Net Carbs = the carbs minus the fiber).

I have made this a couple of times.  Sometimes, I make a rectangle.  You do you, and make it how it works best for you!  Hmm, suddenly I want a pizza!!
