Low-Carb Pizza by Thin and Thinner
This recipe makes a delicious pizza that is appealing to the eye as well as delicious. It is quick and easy to make. It received the seal of approval from my not-so-low-carb husband!
½ cup almond flour
½ tsp. baking powder
1/16 tsp. xanthan gum
¼ tsp. salt
1 packet of Truvia
¼ cup of shredded cheddar cheese
1 beaten egg
2 tbsp. tomato sauce
1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
8 thin slices of pepperoni
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
Whisk almond flour, baking powder, xanthan gum, salt, Truvia, and cheese until well blended.
Add the beaten egg. Mix well.
Pour onto a buttered sheet of parchment paper on a large cookie sheet.
Spread batter on sheet as flat as possible with a spatula until it is a 6 inch round diameter.
Bake at 375 degrees for 14 minutes.
Transfer pizza crust to a sheet of tin foil and put it back on the cookie sheet.
Spread the tomato sauce on the crust.
Add the mozzarella and pepperoni.
Fold the foil over any exposed crust (so that it will not burn under the broiler).
Broil for 2 minutes.
Slice into 4 wedges with a pizza cutter.
(4 net carbs plus Truvia for entire crust)
