Low Carb Pizza? Gluten free, too? Dinner Tonight? Yes.

low carb pizza

 

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.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time: 55 minutes
Serves 4
INGREDIENTS FOR CRUST:
4 oz reduced fat cream cheese
4 eggs, beaten
1/3 c half and half creamer
1/2 c Parmesan cheese, grated
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp garlic powder
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 c  part skim mozzarella cheese, shredded
INGREDIENTS FOR SAUCE AND TOPPING
3/4 c marinara sauce (no sugar in ingredients)
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp black pepper
TOPPING (S)
1 1/2 c mozzarella cheese, shredded for topping and other favorites like onions, peppers, sausage crumbles, mushrooms

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
