MAIN DISHES

Low Carb Pizza

 

 

I must say that I’ve been having a lot of fun testing out different low carb pizza recipes! The real issue with pizza is making a tasty, crispy crust that’s also low carb. Added to that is my intention to make SWEET TALKERS recipes with the healthiest ingredients I can. For this recipe, I added some psyllium fiber to the crust (good fiber) and added some parsley on the top to help with digestion.

 

Ingredients:

 

For the crust:

 

  1. Cup Almond Flour

  1. Cup organic Parmesan cheese

1/3 Cup Organic Heavy Cream

  1. Tablespoons of Psyllium powder

  2. Organic eggs

  1. Tablespoon chopped fresh basil

  1. Tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

¼ Teaspoon oregano

¼ Teaspoon Italian seasoning

 

For the pizza topping:

 

(2) cups Organico Bello Brand tomato basic pasta sauce (or another low carb sauce)

(2) cups shredded mozzarella cheese

(1) cup shredded cheddar cheese + spices of your choice (oregano, basil, etc, + sprinkle chopped parsley on top of the pizza)

 

  1. Mix almond flour, parmesan cheese, psyllium powder, eggs and heavy cream together. Using a hand mixer works well here. Add in fresh basil, oregano and Italian seasoning. This mixture will be dense so place it in between two pieces of parchment paper and use a glass or rolling pin to flatten the mixture into a round crust.

  2. Heat oven to 375 degrees and bake crust for 10-15 minutes until it’s turning a golden brown. Note: using a pizza pan with holes in the bottom will help the crust crisp up. Remove crust from the oven, set aside and let cool a bit before adding the toppings. (Note: don’t turn off the oven)

  3. Spread your marinara or pasta sauce over the top of the pizza and then spread on the shredded mozzarella. Add the shredded cheddar cheese and any spices. Finally, sprinkle the chopped parsley on top.

  4. Place completed pizza back in the over for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Enjoy!
