Since my German boyfriend and I both have type 1 diabetes, it is nearly impossible to enjoy pizza anymore. That is, until we discovered this low carb pizza recipe. Made from cheese and eggs, I think it’s as close as you can get to the real thing in taste with only about 6 g of carbohydrates in the entire 9×13 inch crust!
So if you are trying to cut carbs out of your diet, here is our delicious recipe for low carb pizza:
Low Carb Pizza Crust Ingredients:
1 cup Parmesan cheese
8 oz. (225 g) cream cheese
I live in Germany, so excuse the fact that the packaging is in German. But all you need for the crust is shredded Parmesan cheese, cream cheese (or Neufchâtel cheese if you want a little less fat), and two eggs.
Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).
Then simply measure out your ingredients, and mix them all together in a bowl.
This mixture will be your dough for the crust. Don’t worry if it is quite liquid. It will firm up in the oven. Once everything is well blended, pour it into a greased 9×13 baking pan. We have a pretty cheap pan, so we used parchment paper to make sure it didn’t stick.
Put it in the oven for 30 minutes, or until the top turns golden brown. It should come out looking something like this:
Once it is out, crank up the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit (220 degrees Celsius).
Now it’s time for the sauce. If you are counting carbs, make sure to always check the nutrition facts of any pre-made sauces, as many use sweeteners. We just used plain canned tomatoes and added in some garlic, oregano, salt and pepper.
Then it is cheese and toppings time! We like to put our toppings on first, then the cheese.
Next, put it back in the oven for about 15 minutes or until the cheese is nice and bubbly.
Let it cool for at 10 minutes, then dig in!
If you are a fan of cold pizza like me, then you will definitely want to try a few pieces of this pizza after its spent a night in the fridge. It is so good.
