Certainly! Here’s a simple recipe for a keto-friendly pizza crust:
– 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
– 3/4 cup almond flour
– 2 tablespoons cream cheese
– 1 teaspoon baking powder
– 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
– 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
– 2 large eggs
1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
2. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the mozzarella cheese and cream cheese. Microwave on high for 1 minute, then stir well. Continue microwaving in 30-second intervals, stirring each time, until the cheese is completely melted and smooth.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond flour, baking powder, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder.
4. Add the dry mixture and eggs to the melted cheese mixture. Stir well until all the ingredients are combined and form a dough-like consistency.
5. Transfer the dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet or pizza stone. Flatten the dough with your hands, then place another sheet of parchment paper on top. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough into a thin crust.
6. Remove the top layer of parchment paper and transfer the crust to the preheated oven. Bake for about 12-15 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
7. Once the crust is cooked, remove it from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. At this point, you can add your desired toppings such as low-carb tomato sauce, cheese, vegetables, and meats.
8. Return the topped pizza to the oven and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the toppings are heated through.
9. Once done, remove the pizza from the oven, slice, and serve.
