One of the main foods people miss when living a lower carb lifestyle is PIZZA. The crust of regular pizza is high in carbohydrate grams…two slices of pizza can have 90 or more grams of carb! This easy and delicious recipe is a neutral food on all Steps of The Metabolism Miracle and The Diabetes Miracle.
Preheat oven to 375 F
Lightly spray round pizza-type baking pan with cooking oil spray and set aside
In a large bowl, whip together cream cheese and eggs until smooth
To the cream cheese mixture add half and half, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
Sprinkle 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese evenly in the bottom of the prepared pizza baking pan.
Bake mozzarella for 5 minutes
Remove from oven and spoon cream cheese mixture over the shredded mozzarella. This will become the pizza’s crust.
Bake “crust” for 30 minutes and remove from oven
While crust is baking, simmer 3/4 cup marinara sauce to which you can add 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp black pepper, 1/4 tsp oregano
Spread crust with marinara sauce and 1.5 cups mozzarella cheese. You can also add any toppings: peppers/onions/mushrooms/olives.
Bake about 12 minutes until bubbly. Wait 5 minutes after removing from oven to cut into 8 pieces.
Delicious paired with a garden salad of Romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumber, black olives, thinly sliced onion and Italian dressing
