LOWEST CARB! Thin Crispy Pizza Crust! BEST EVER!

I decided to experiment ~.

I know, that sounds dangerous, but stay with me here!

I've been housebound since an unfortunate allergic reaction to some shea butter moisturizer. (caveat~if you are allergic to tree nuts, DO NOT slather shea butter all over your face,
neck and body to combat dry skin).

Anyway, I don't know if it was the copious amounts of allergy meds I've taken, or the obsession I have with the myriad recipes encountered on the web, but I had a weird dream about making pizza crust that didn't involve cauliflower, zucchini, shirtake noodles or broccoli.

I woke up with this crazy idea and I'll be darned if it didn't work! I still love the veggie
pizza crusts, but this was delicious and easy for a change.

Thin and Crispy Pizza Crust

Heat oven to 450 degrees

In a bowl thoroughly combine

3 eggs

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp basil

press evenly into Pam sprayed pizza pan or cookie sheet

(this makes one 16 inch pizza crust)

Bake at 450 degrees until golden brown

Here is what your crust looks like after baking

It will completely lift off your cookie sheet. I patted the grease off
of it, but that step is optional

add toppings of your choice

I added

1/4 cup low carb marinara

1 cup Mozzarella cheese

2 links Italian sausage (browned and crumbled)

1/4 cup sliced back olives

After adding toppings, run the pizza under the broiler until cheese is melted
and toppings are bubbly

This slices up beautifully and the crust is crispy and thin

Yes, you can hold it in your hand!

This was super easy to make! The veggie crusts are much healthier, I'm
sure! However, this is a very quick and easy alternative, especially if
you want a crisper crust!
