Recipe: Zero Carb Crust Pizza


For the Crust:
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (part-skim or whole milk)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (optional)
  • Pinch of salt
For Pizza Toppings (Customizable):
  • 1/4 cup sugar-free tomato sauce or marinara sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Your choice of pizza toppings (e.g., pepperoni, bell peppers, onions, mushrooms)
  • Fresh basil leaves for garnish (optional)


Preparing the Crust:
  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the shredded mozzarella cheese and grated Parmesan cheese.
  3. Microwave the cheeses in 30-second intervals, stirring each time, until they are completely melted and well combined. This typically takes 1-2 minutes.
  4. Allow the cheese mixture to cool slightly to avoid cooking the egg when it’s added.
  5. Once the cheese mixture is warm but not hot, stir in the egg, Italian seasoning (if using), and a pinch of salt. Mix until you have a uniform dough.
Baking the Crust:
  1. Line a baking sheet or pizza stone with parchment paper.
  2. Place the dough on the parchment paper and use your hands or a rolling pin to flatten it into a round or rectangular shape, depending on your preference. Aim for about 1/4-inch thickness.
  3. Use a fork to poke a few holes in the crust to prevent bubbles while baking.
  4. Bake the crust in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until it becomes golden brown and crispy around the edges.
Topping and Final Baking:
  1. Remove the crust from the oven and let it cool for a minute or two.
  2. Spread the sugar-free tomato sauce evenly over the crust.
  3. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese over the sauce.
  4. Add your choice of pizza toppings, such as pepperoni slices or vegetables.
Returning to the Oven:
  1. Return the topped pizza to the oven and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  1. Garnish with fresh basil leaves, if desired.
  2. Slice your Zero Carb Crust Pizza and enjoy a delicious, low-carb pizza experience.
