Tonight we are having pizza. I found another recipe for pizza crust to try - Fathead Pizza Crust it's called. I will try to remember to take a pic! I can't say I am surprised there's so many low carb pizza crust recipes - never being able to eat pizza again would be HORRIBLE!!! Fat Head Pizza - The HOLY GRAIL Of Low Carb Pizzas
170g / 6oz / 1 3/4cups pre shredded/grated cheese mozzarella is the best or Edam/mild cheese
85g / 3oz / 3/4cup almond meal/flour
2 tbsp cream cheese
pinch salt to taste
½ tsp dried rosemary/ garlic or other flavourings optional
your choice of toppings
Mix the shredded/grated cheese and almond flour/meal in a microwaveable bowl. Add the cream cheese. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute.
Stir then microwave on HIGH for another 30 seconds.
Add the egg, salt, rosemary and any other flavourings, mix gently.
Place in between 2 pieces of baking parchment/paper and roll into a circular pizza shape (see photos above). Remove the top baking paper/parchment. If the mixture hardens and becomes difficult to work with, pop it back in the microwave for 10-20 seconds to soften again but not too long or you will cook the egg.
Make fork holes all over the pizza base to ensure it cooks evenly.
Slide the baking paper/parchment with the pizza base, on a baking tray (cookie tray) or pizza stone, and bake at 220C/425F for 12-15 minutes, or until brown.
To make the base really crispy and sturdy, flip the pizza over (onto baking paper/parchment) once the top has browned.
Once cooked, remove from the oven and add all the toppings you like. Make sure any meat is already cooked as this time it goes back into the oven just to heat up the toppings and melt the cheese. Bake again at 220C/425F for 5 minutes.
Fat Head pastry can also be made by replacing the almond meal/flour with 1/4 cup (4 tbsp) coconut flour.
