Low Carb Pizza

Low carb pizza 1

Ingredients:

For the Crust:
1 (8oz.) package of full fat cream cheese (at room temp)
2 eggs
Freshly ground black pepper -1/2 tsp.
Garlic powder- pinch
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

For the Pizza:
1 cup jarred marinara sauce
A pinch or two of chili powder
1 tsp. oregano
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
We added 1/2 cup pizza blend cheese also
sauteed pepperoni-just pan fry it and drain-I tried a few of them straight from the package liked the sauteed the best
Garlic powder- pinch

Making the crust:
Preheat oven to 350.
Butter a 9×13 baking dish
Blend room temp cream cheese and eggs and season with pepper and garlic powder (I used our mixer for this part).
Add parmesan cheese and stir until combined
Pour into buttered baking dish
Bake for 17-20 minutes or until golden brown on top (we did longer becuase we had a darker pan)
Let crust cool for 10 minutes before adding toppings-don’t skip this part or it will get soggy.

Making the pizza:
After crust is cooked, raise oven temp to 400 degrees
Mix together marinara sauce, garlic powder, chili powder and oregano
Top crust with marinara and spread evenly
Top with mozzarella (and pizza cheese if desired)
Add other toppings
Bake for 8 minutes or until cheese is bubbly-we put it on broil for about 2 minutes at the end.

Our marinara had about 12 carbs per 1/2 cup so we figure a total of about 30 carbs for the whole pizza versus over 100 carbs for a thin crust regular one. Your crust won’t be crispy but it’s still really good!
