- 6 Eggs
- 6 Ounces Cream Cheese
- 4 Ounces Parmesan Cheese - Shredded
- Salt and Pepper to Taste
- Italian Seasoning to Taste
- Minced Garlic to Taste
Bring the cream cheese to room temperature. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Combine cream cheese, eggs and seasoning in a mixing bowl. Spray the bottom and sides of a 9x13 baking pan with a non-stick spray. Place the parmesan cheese evenly on the bottom of the baking pan, and then pour in the egg and cream cheese mixture. Bake for 15 to 25 minutes, or until the top of the crust starts to brown.
Pull your crust out of the oven, top with your favorite ingredients, and place back in the oven to bake for 12 to 15 minutes. That's it! You now have a low-carb pizza that tastes incredible.
This recipe makes one 9x13 pizza crust, or approximately 8 slices. Nutritional information is per slice.
First things first. I used low fat cream cheese, non fat mozzarella, turkey sausage, all natural parmesan, low sodium pizza sauce, and the italian seasoning.
Is it exactly like a pizza crust? Of course not. Its eggs and cream cheese, for God's sake.
Does it taste like pizza? Yes... A "half deep dish" pizza.
Is it worth it? Hell yeah.
The making: it says there to bring cream,cheese to room temperature. Yes. Do it. but also, bring the eggs to room temperature too. Or your hours of waiting for the cream cheese to warm up will be in vain.
I used coconut oil to grease the pan. I recomend pay special attention on the edges... Also, use a glass pan.
When you pour the parmesan, then the dough (i also added 2tbs of brown rice flour... It added on carbs a little, but i didn't trust the super runny dough), make sure you spread it evenly.
I baked for around 25min. I suggested the glass pan, because the parmesan on the bottom will burn before your top gets brown-ish. So you need to keep an eye on it. I topped with sauce, mozzarella and sausage, and broiled, just to melt the cheese. The result wasn't a perfect pizza crust, of course, but it was super tasty, and it can definitely trick your taste buds.Give it a try, guys. I really enjoyed
Logistically this recipe does not work on a pizza sheet, its simply too runny! I feel like who ever wrote this was trolling because this recipe is completely crazy. Its also misnamed, it should be called BAKED EGGS (as there is no flour, oat, wheat or base for this crust)!
This is awesome, I've struggled to find a low-carb pizza recipe!
I feel like whoever had the idea for this was a genius. Trying this later this week. I've got a protien heavy pizza I've been wanting to make but couldn't find a good low carb crust till now.
Hi Sarah. This is not my recipe so I can't answer the question for you, however, I can tell you to use caution when choosing low fat items because the product most often replaces the lower fat content with other things like more sugar. And, watch sugar free or low sugar items because they contain artificial sweeteners which are worse for you. Simply enjoy the foods you like but in smaller portions and add more fruit and vegetables to your diet. :)
Hi, I'd like to try this recipe. Is the cream cheese full fat, low fat or no fat?
