For all you pizza lovers gone low carb/keto. Here’s a great cheesy crust to replace that doughy deliciousness! You can also use this recipe to make “bread”sticks or crackers too!
- 170g / 6oz / 1 3/4cups pre shredded/grated cheese mozzarella
- 85g / 3oz / 3/4cup almond meal/flour
- 2 tbsp cream cheese
- 1 egg
- pinch salt to taste
- ½ tsp dried rosemary/ garlic or other flavors (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. 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 or pizza stone, and bake at 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 425F for 5 minutes.
