9g of carbs PIZZA CRUST!!!

Wow, this was SUPER tasty.  Low carb pizza!!!! I made the crust from cauliflower which was a little bit of work but worth it.  Also it was hard to make it hard and thick.  It’s more like a soft crust thin pizza but SO GOOD!

Ingredients for cauliflower crust:

  • 2-3 cups processed cauliflower (I took cauliflower and put it in a nutribullet)
  • ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon basil
  • ½ teaspoon oregano

Ingredients for keto marinara sauce: 

  • 28 oz can of San Marzano Tomatoes (no sugar)
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

Topping Ingredients:

  • 4 oz of pre-cooked chicken
  • Spinach leaves
  • Grated Parmesan cheese
  • Artichoke hearts

THE FUN PART! 

  1.  Preheat oven to 500 F.
  2.  I bought 12z bags of steamed cauliflower.  Put them in microwave for 6 minutes.  Let cool off for few minutes.
  3. Put in nutribullet to mash it up.
  4. THIS IS A SUPER IMPORTANT PART: Wrap the mashed up cauliflower in papertowels and squeeze all the water out of it.  I had to do this multiple times! Squeeze squeeze!
  5. In a separate bowl, mix Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, egg, salt and seasonings.
  6. Drop cauliflower dough into the bowl and mix all ingredients thoroughly.  Now you have your pizza crust dough.
  7. Spread on pain into whatever shape you desire.  Cook for 12-15 minutes.
  8. While this is cooking, you can make your sauce! I took all the ingredients and just put it in nutribullet for a minute or two.  And that’s your low carb sauce.  I did not use the entire can of sauce- I only took out the tomatoes.
  9. Take out the pizza crust from oven.  Put your own toppings as desired on it.  Put it back in oven on BROIL for 2-5 minutes is all you need so you don’t burn the crust.

Nutrition Info:

For the entire pizza, 294 calories with 9g of carbs FOR THE WHOLE PIZZA.

I added spinach, artichoke, chicken and more cheese on it for topping so it ended up being like 3g of carbs for the artichoke.  Again, something so low I won’t even worry about it.
