Cheese Crust Pizza


Pizza is a hard craving to satisfy on a low carb diet. Sure you can pick off all the toppings or you can make the “meatza”, but you can’t just pick it up and eat it like you would a regular pizza. I stumbled upon a variation of this recipe and just tweaked it a bit. You can actually pick up a slice of this pizza and eat it like everyone else does! I used a glass pie pan to make this, but I am sure you could make this as small or as big as you needed. Here is the list of Ingredients:


For the “Crust”

1 egg
1 ½ cups of shredded whole milk mozzarella cheese
pinch of basil
pinch of garlic

 

 

 

 

 

Pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees. Combine all the ingredients above into a bowl make sure it is mixed really well. Spray the bottom of whatever cooking vessel you choose to use, I used the glass pie pan to give it a nice round shape. Place the mixture in the bottom and spread out until it forms a very thin and even layer. Bake it in the oven for about 15 min or until it is nice and golden brown on top.

For the toppings I used pepperoni, onions and garlic followed by some additional mozzarella cheese. You can top this with whatever you love on a pizza! I put it back in the oven for about 10 more minutes or until it is golden brown. I took a knife around the edges and slid it right out of the pan and cut it like a regular pizza. It was officially delicious and totally satisfied the need for a pizza night!
