a Better Pizza!

QYTE0937a Better Pizza instructions.

Ingredients:     2 cups shredded Mozzarella

1 tsp. garlic powder

1 Tbsp. Italian seasoning

1 tsp. onion powder

½ cup Almond flour

¼ to ½ cup low sugar pizza sauce

Keto topping: Any full fat shredded cheese, pepperoni, sausage, green peppers…. Almost any vegetable, meat, or fish!

 

Directions:       Preheat oven to 375 (preheat baking stone if you have one! Parchment paper works on a baking sheet as well.)

The Crust: In a microwaveable bowl, mix 2 cups shredded cheese and seasoning together. Microwave for 90 to 120 seconds or until the cheese melts and starts to curl at the edge of the bowl. With a spoon, knead the cheese. Use a spoon to pull it away from the sides and bottom. Slowly mix in the almond flour, kneading in a little at a time. Once all the flour is kneaded into the melted cheese, you will be able to roll it thin into the shape of the pizza you want. It is easiest to roll it in 1 direction until the width desired is reached. Then roll the other direction to make it round.  Bake at 375 for 5 to 7 minutes. You will see it start to change colors or get a little darker or slightly brown.

Toppings: Remove the crust from oven and top with sauce, and toppings. Bake again for 5 to 10 minutes, or until topping cheese is melted to your liking. Remove and let cool for 5 to 10 min. The Crust cheese will become crispier and easier to eat by hand. I like to cut it into small squares. My kids love it!
