Ketogenic Pizza, Low Carbohydrate Pizza, Healthy Pizza, Low-Calorie Pizza! – whatever name you give it, this perfect substitution for regular pizza is sure to be a hit. It hits most of the same notes as a regular pizza if you are comparing it to a thin crust that is.
The star of this recipe is definitely the crust base:
Very similar mouth feel and at a fraction of the guilt. Also one of my go to recipes just like the Cauliflower Fried Rice because you can top it with literally anything in your fridge and pantry. Versatility is always a must because you never know what little bits and bobs you will have sitting around ready to expire.
Yields 1 serving of Thin Crust Low Carb Pizza
- 1 piece Joseph’s Low-Carb Pita Bread
- 2 tablespoons Rao’s tomato Sauce
- 2 ounces low-moisture mozzarella cheese
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/8 teaspoon chili flakes
- Optional: mix-in ideas – bacon, spinach, roasted red peppers, olives, artichokes, pesto, pepperoni, salami, prosciutto, roast beef, ham, avocado, sriracha, chili paste
1. Preheat oven to a toasty: 450 ° F
2. Either brush slightly with oil or spray both sides with cooking spray.
3. Place in oven for 1 to 2 minutes to harden and toast the crust.
4. Remove from oven and add the sauce.
5. Add cheeses (mozzarella first.)
6. Add toppings of your choice (don’t go too overboard…)
7. Rub with some olive oil and toast for 1-2 minutes at 450° degrees to crisp it
8. Cook for an additional ~3-6 minutes to melt cheese.
Protip: Turn the broiler on the get the cheese nice and bubbly and a good char around the edges.
Protip #2: If you decide to broil it towards the end – KEEP A CLOSE EYE ON YOUR PIZZA – even 15 seconds can make the difference between perfectly crispy pizza and a charred burned cracker.
