Low-Carb Pizza Crust

Submitted by: DEMIGIRLIE
Low-Carb Pizza Crust

Introduction

very good and very easy very good and very easy
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    3 Cups Shredded Mozzarella
    1 Cup Shredded Colby & Monterey Jack Cheese
    4 eggs
    1 tsp Garlic Powder
    1 tsp Basil

    This is the basic recipe for the crust - 16" size.
    I use a 13 x 9 pan for mine.

    You can use your own mix of cheese - even reduce it by one cup/one egg to make less...I like my crust a bit thicker so I use 4 cups of cheese, 4 eggs, for thinner crust use 3 cups of cheese and 3 eggs. You can also vary the seasonings you use, if you have a favorite blend use it.

Directions

Bake at 450 degrees until browned to desired crispness/doneness

it does not stick to the pan - trust me!

Top with 1/4 cup pizza sauce (more if you like more but if watching carbs, use 1/4 cup); use any mix of meats or other toppings as desired. Once you add the toppings you want (including any additional cheese you want on top) - put under the broiler until the cheese is melted to desired point.

ENJOY!

    This is an awesome recipe. It was invented by a great lady on the low carb boards - and there are infinite versions out there. I make mine with 2 cups cheddar/1 cup mozzarella/3 eggs and with oregano instead of basil, plus a little flax - 2 tablespoons - to hold it together better. YUM! - 4/30/10

    Made myself a personal pizza using 1 cup mozerella and 1 egg. Sprayed a frying pan with some pam and made the "crust" over medium-high heat. Worked great and omg so yummy. Perfect for pizza cravings! - 8/7/12

    Tasty! I'll admit - I was skeptical, but it definitely made a great crust! I've been craving pizza, and this was the perfect carb-substitute. I did lightly spray the pan, however. - 8/9/11

    Wondering if this can be made with just the egg whites instead of whole eggs to reduce the cholesterol? - 1/26/12

    I couldn't believe how good this was. My husband was completely skeptical beforehand that this would be a good crust, and he LOVED it! I'm diabetic, and it was SO nice to be able to have 2 pieces of pizza without worrying about all the carbs. It was absolutely delicious! - 6/23/14

    This is a keeper! I love that I have all the ingredients in my house at all times. When not following low carb I use to make a crust my family has been making for years and it was always a go to on nights when no supper was planned and no meat was in the house. I can still do it now with this one. - 4/2/13

    Really good and satisfying. I line the pan with parchment and it just lifts off. I also cook 5 minutes more (for a crispier bite), cut it up and have crackers! This is my new staple for lo carb. Thank you. - 1/31/13

    Holy Cheese! Great recipe. My wife and I have diabetes and we love pizza. This will be a regular fare for us. We concocted our own toppings and two pieces each of the 8 total satisfied our appetites (which were enormous at the time because we had just finished our workout at the YMCA). - 1/14/13

    I have one major question here.... what do I do with the ingredients after I get them? You list the ingredients, and the temp to bake them at, but not what to do inbetween. - 5/11/10

  • This was GOOD! Had folks over, made regular pizza for everyone and this for me and another low-carber. I used 2 c. Mozz and 1 c. Cheddar, 1 T chia seed & a few shakes garlic powder. Baked on pizza stone and it did stick a bit but came up easy. Was a Huge HIT with everyone who had some! - 5/30/13

  • There are no instructions. Do you just mix everything together at once and throw into a pan? Do you bake it all separately? - 4/6/11
