Being a New Yorker one of my favorite indulgences or cheat meals was a nice slice of pizza from my neighborhood pizza shop. As soon as I started keto I knew I had to find a low carb version of pizza and found the cauliflower crust one. While it was ok it didn't taste exactly like pizza. Then I made the Fat Head Pizza and I knew that I found a winner!
Step 1: Take a medium sized bowl and add 1 1/2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese. I always shred my own cheese because I don't like the added starches and ingredients in pre-shredded cheese. Take two tablespoons of cream cheese and cut into little pieces. Sprinkle on top of the mozzarella cheese.
Step 2: Microwave for 30 seconds and then mix to incorporate the melted cream cheese. Microwave for another 30 seconds and mix again. The mixture should be melted and gooey. Add the almond flour and mix with a spatula. Add the egg and continue to mix. When you feel like it won't mix anymore use your hands to mix. Knead the "dough" by folding it over itself until all of the ingredients are fully incorporated.
Step 3: I place the "dough" in between two silicone baking mats and roll until it is about 1/4" inch thick. Poke all over the top with a fork to prevent bubbles from forming when baking. Place in a 375 degree oven for 8 minutes.
Step 4: Add a 1/2 cup of low carb spaghetti sauce and all of the toppings you like. I use the Simply Enjoy pasta sauce that I find at Stop n Shop because it is only 4 total carbs per 1/2 cup. I then add about 4 ounces of shredded mozzarella cheese, sliced mushrooms and turkey pepperoni. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes or until melted and bubbly.
