Holy Fantastic Low Carb Pizza!!
I'm currently on Atkins again...Because I have this problem and it's called 'Loving Cheese'!...I literally would eat different cheeses every night, gouda, asiago, dill havarti, cream havarti. muentser, and the list goes on. So I gained 10 pounds in about 2 months. Not to mention the Martha Stewart cupcake book I bought! oh that did wonders for my figure! :) So Atkins is a diet I can be on and still enjoy cheeeeeese! I've done it in the past and kept the weight off for a year (well until I met Martha's cupcakes) so I thought "Why not do it again Mish? You can have cheese again! and be the carnivore that you are!" My thoughts won the battle. . Sooo tonight I decided to take a chance and make a low carb pizza recipe I found online. Not sure what the total net carb count is but it seems pretty low due to just being cheese, sauce, and toppings. recipe as follows.
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 cups mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Blend softened cream cheese and eggs together until smooth in a medium mixing bowl Add in Parmesan cheese and heavy cream and continue mixing.
On the top:
1/2 cup (or less) pizza sauce or tomato sauce (the lowest carb you can find)
@1 cup mozzarella cheese
pizza toppings (choose wisely based on your daily carb limit)
Sparingly spread some of the pizza sauce and then cover with the remaining mozzarella cheese and any other toppings you have on hand. The more low carb toppings you add, the more filling each slice will be. Put the pizza back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes to melt the cheese and warm up your toppings.
