Servings
Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup almond meal/flour
  • 1 and 3/4 cups mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Desired pizza toppings (tomato paste or sauce mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms, bell peppers, etc.)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Combine almond flour and mozzarella cheese in a microwave safe bowl. Add in cream cheese and cook in the microwave for one minute. Stir and then cook for an additional 30 seconds in the microwave.
  3. Mix in egg, salt, and Italian seasoning, and stir.
  4. Shape dough into a ball and place between two pieces of parchment paper.
  5. Use a rolling pin on top of the parchment paper to roll the dough in a circular shape. (Mine was more of an oval.)
  6. Remove the top parchment paper and slide dough onto a baking sheet or pizza stone. Bake at 425 degrees in the oven for 12-14 minutes until slightly browned.
  7. Add any desired pizza toppings and sauce you’d like to the top of the crust. (Keep in mind, if using raw meat you’d want to cook it first before putting on pizza.) Continue cooking in oven for 5 minutes until cheese melts. Makes about 8 slices.
Recipe Notes

Recipe from DitchtheCarbs.com


Things to Consider:

  • I diced bell peppers and mushrooms and sauteed them first on the stove before topping my pizza (just personal preference).
  • I’ve read that you can substitute 1/4 cup of coconut flour instead of almond flour, but I haven’t tried it yet.
  • Next time, I will try flipping the pizza crust over half way through baking for a more evenly cooked crust.
  • You can divide the pastry and make smaller personalized pizzas!
  • This pastry would make a delicious garlic bread, as well as a bread substitute for other recipes!

No joke ~ this pizza is YUMMY! We liked the taste and texture even better than cauliflower pizza!
