Original Recipe by LindaLow Carb Deep Dish Pizza

Crust: 

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened 
  • 2 eggs 
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano or Italian seasoning 
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder { I used 3/4 teaspoon – we like garlic }
  • 8 ounces Italian cheese blend or mozzarella cheese, shredded

 

Toppings

  • 1/4 cup pizza sauce { I used 1/2 cup to cover the entire crust – this ups the carb count a bit }
  • 4 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded 
  • Assorted toppings: pepperoni, ham, sausage, onions, olives, green peppers, bacon, etc. 
  • Dash of garlic pepper or garlic powder and some Italian seasoning for top of pizza

 

Directions:

  1. Put the softened cream cheese, eggs, parmesan cheese, seasonings and 8 ounces of mozzarella in a medium bowl. Mix with a spoon until well-blended. 
  2. Spread the cheese mixture evenly in a well-greased 9×13″ glass baking dish or a 9×13″ rimmed baking sheet that is lightly greased and lined with parchment paper (see note below). 
  3. Bake at 375º 20-25 minutes or until evenly browned, but not too dark. 
  4. Let cool completely on a wire rack.
  5. Spread the crust with the pizza sauce, then the cheese and toppings of your choice. 
  6. Lightly sprinkle with the seasonings of your choice. 
  7. Bake at 375º about 15-20 minutes or until toppings are bubbly. 
  8. Let stand a few minutes before cutting.
