Recipe for a #NoCarbCrust #Pizza
By Ray Hanania
Pizza was originally made in the Mediterranean, but the pizza we eat in America is nothing like the Pizza you may associate with Italy.
Pizza as we know it was invented in America, from Greek, Italian and Arab recipes.
It’s easy to make and perfect for people who want to lose weight on the No Carb Diet or Keto diet.
I know you are going to enjoy this #NoCarbCrust Pizza.
Here is my #Opa #NoCarbCrust #Pizza recipe with instructions.
1 — an 8 ounce brick of cheese (your choice) I used pepperJack cheese
2 two eggs
3 – Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Garlic
4 – 3 Italian sausages, cut into small pieces
5 – 10 slices of Mozzarella Cheese
6 – 6 slices of Swiss Cheese (or another preference)
7 – 1/2 of an 8 ounce can of Tomato Sauce (3.5 carbs per serving, total 6 cards)
8 – spices Oregano, etc.
1 – Cover a large pizza pan (square with a 1.2 inch ridge) with the Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 – In a separate pan, grate the cheese and mix the two eggs. (Grating the cheese, rather than using the small cheese slices) makes the mixture tighter, and more cohesive.
3 – Place 6 slices of Swiss cheese (or your alternative cheese flavor) on the pan … place 6 slices of Mozzarella over the spaces between the Swiss cheese
4 – Spread the grated cheese and eggs together on top of the slices of cheese.
5 – Set the oven to 375 degrees in an oven for 19 minutes …
6 – Once cooked, take the pan out of the oven and let it sit 10 to 20 minutes.
(If it looks like there is excess oil, lift it and pour the excess out. Cheese when cooked creates its own oil, too)
7 – While letting the #NoCarbCrust cool, fry the sausage in the olive oil until crispy and cooked
8 – Spread half an 8 ounce can of tomato sauce over the #NoCarbCrust, covering it. (1/2 a can of 8 ounce tomato sauce is about 6 to 7 carbs. But remember, you are not eating the whole pizza yourself so you are only eating about 2 – 3 carbs)
9 – Place the cooked sausage on top spreading it around
10 – break up the remaining slices of Mozzarella cheese and place on top of the sausage.
11 – Set the oven to 475 degrees for 15 minutes and cook
NOTE: Ovens may cook differently, so in the first step you want the #NoCarbCrust to be smooth and cohesive, almost like bread. That may mean cooking it more than 19 minutes. In the second step, you may have to cook longer than 15 minutes, but you want to make sure the Mozzarella slices you placed on the sausage turns a golden brown.
Once done, cut the #NoCarbCrust pizza into squares and enjoy
