Servings 1 pizza
Heat the oven to 400°. In a heat safe mixing bowl combine the grated mozzarella with the almond flour, parmesan, sea salt and spicy spaghetti seasoning, then mix the ingredients together. Cut the cream cheese into smaller cubes and place on top of the other ingredients.
Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir with a wooden spoon and then microwave for an additional 30 seconds. Mix the dough well with the wooden spoon, checking to make sure the cream cheese and mozzarella has fully melted. Mix in the egg and knead until it is fully incorporated.
Place the dough onto a piece of parchment paper. Place a second piece of parchment or wax paper over top and roll out the dough to form a circle (or whatever shape you desire). Prick the dough with a fork all over to ensure even baking. Slide the parchment right onto a baking sheet or pizza pan and bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until the edge of the keto pizza crust has turned golden brown.
Remove the fathead pizza crust from the oven and flip it over so that the bottom is now the top. Decorate with Sugar Free Pizza Sauce, cheese and toppings, and put back in the oven until the cheese is melted, about 7 minutes. Slice into 8 and serve hot!
Mozzarella- I prefer to shred my own mozzarella because some of the pre shredded mozzarella you can buy contains corn starch. Aka carbs.
Parmesan- You can use either freshly grated parmesan or the shelf stable type. In this recipe it is used for flavour rather than texture, so it doesn't matter what you use to make your low carb pizza.
If the cheese hasn't fully melted, continue to microwave in 15 second intervals until it has, before kneading in the egg.
Do you find your parchment paper slides around too much?Try using a non stick baking mat! It will stick to your work station and then you can just slide the whole mat onto a baking sheet to bake your keto pizza crust.
Need a quick, cost effective pizza sauce recipe? All you'll need to make this Sugar Free Pizza Sauce is tomato paste, some dried herbs and water!
How about a pepperoni stuffed crust pizza?! Slice a pepperoni stick lengthwise into quarters; you only need one for the whole pizza. Roll out your dough a little further than you normally would, place the pepperoni along the edge of the crust and then fold the dough over it. Bake as per recipe instructions and enjoy stuffed crust goodness!
- How about a tasty dip for that Fathead Pizza Crust?! I love mine with this Low Carb Ranch Dressing or Creamy Caesar Dressing.
