Listed is only the calories and macros for the crust!!!! How you choose to top your pizza will change your calories and macros.
We made a double batch so we could make 2 large pizzas, but you can just make one. The ingredient list is for ONE pizza.
Measure out your shredded mozzarella cheese and cream cheese and put in microwave for 90 seconds.
When the time is finished pull it out and stir using a spoon that has been sprayed with non stick cooking spray. (this makes life so much easier with this crust , be sure to spray you mixer beaters also).
once stirred place back in microwave for 60 more seconds!
Remove from microwave and stir. Your dough should be smooth now.
Transfer to your mixing bowl and add egg and mix.
Once that is mixed add your almond flour! Mix well
once your dough is mixed well turn your dough out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
Spray your rolling pin also and start to work your dough to the edges, This takes a little practice and manipulation. Try to make your dough even so it bakes evenly throughout the pan.
We will place the link for a small rolling pin below. This handy tool will make life much easier if you do not already have one.
Once you have your crust rolled out evenly use a fork and dock your crust.
Place your crust in the oven at 425 degrees for 8 minutes.
When the first 8 minutes are finished, pull the crust out and dock again to any place that the crust has puffed up. Then place back in the oven for 2 to 4 more minutes making sure it does not get too brown. Remember you are going to bake it more when you get the toppings on!
This is our finished crust. it looks perfect and is ready for topping. One crust is 4 servings , you will be able to have one fourth of the pizza as a serving when it is finished.
We decided to make a Spinach chicken pizza for this blog because it is one of my favorites and does not use pizza sauce which can be high in carbs.
we sautéed up our chicken breast in butter and garlic
Once the chicken Is cooked we start to put the pizza together.
First we sprinkle a small amount off mozzarella cheese to help the toppings to stick.
thin sliced tomato
Chunks of our sautéed chicken
More Mozzarella! Now this pizza is ready to go into the oven. We turned the oven down to 375 degrees after the crust came out. You want to bake it slower with the toppings on because you want them to be done and also not burn your crust. Watch your pizza closely. cook for about 12 to 15 minutes or until your cheese is bubbly and starting to brown. Don’t forget to watch your crust!
This is our finished product. This is such a good replacement that I have not had a pizza craving since starting this way of eating. I will place another picture below for other topping option ideas.
So upper left corner is a taco pizza with taco meat, avocado, tomato and Mexican cheese!
Bottom left is just white cheese pizza with parmesan chesse and mozzarella cheese and garlic
Upper right is chicken spinach pizza,
Bottom right is traditional pizza with pizza sauce, pepperoni, mushroom and mozzarella.
Your possibilities are endless.
Do not forget to figure your topping of choice into your macros and Let me know if you make this.
This crust is versatile it can be used to make bagels and wraps to make pigs in a blanket etc. It is the best thing I have found.
