If you're looking for a delicious low-carb pizza recipe, look no further than My Montana Kitchen. The homemade crust is made with plenty of gooey cheese plus almond flour for a tasty pizza that fits into your low-carb diet. Top with sugar-free pizza sauce, more cheese and your favorite toppings for your next pizza night!

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ Cups Plus 2/3 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, divided
  • 2 Tablespoons Cream Cheese
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ Cup Super Fine Almond Flour
  • ¼ Cup Sugar Free Pizza Sauce
  • Toppings of choice: pepperoni, olives, green bell peppers, mushrooms, fully cooked sausage, etc.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F degrees. 
  2. Place 1 ½ cups shredded mozzarella cheese and 2 Tablespoons Cream Cheese into a large microwave safe bowl.
  3. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir well, then continue to microwave in 15 second increments, stirring between each increment, until the cheeses are completely melted. Stir until smooth.
  4. Stir in the egg and almond flour. Combine the dough in the bowl with clean, oiled hands until all ingredients are very well incorporated and it forms a ball. The dough will be very sticky. (You can also use a food processor for this step)
  5. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Place the dough in the center and use your hands to press it into a circle, approximately 10 inches across (or use a rolling pin to roll the dough between two pieces of parchment paper).
  6. Using a fork, poke holes all across the crust.
  7. Bake the pizza crust at 400F for 8 minutes, or until it just begins to brown slightly in spots. The crust may puff up while baking. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool for 5 minutes.
  8. Spread the pizza sauce evenly over the cooked pizza crust, leaving a small border of crust around the edges without the sauce.
  9. Sprinkle 1/3 cup of the shredded mozzarella cheese over the pizza sauce. Top with the pizza toppings of your choice.
  10. Top the pizza with the remaining 1/3 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese. 
  11. Bake at 400F for 8 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
  12. Cut into 8 slices and serve hot.
