BACK By Popular Demand! Chewy, Traditional LOW CARB Pizza Crust!

Okay, folks YOU ASKED FOR IT....Here is THE ORIGINAL VERSION of Nancy's Low Carb Pizza! HAND TOSSED STYLE!

I added an extra egg to make a slightly chewier crust. This is like a traditional, hand tossed pizza!

Ingredients for crust~

4 Eggs
3 Cups Shredded Mozzerella
1 Cup Shredded Cheddar/Jack Combo
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp Basil

Mix all this in a bowl until all the cheese is coated with egg. I do it by hand, like when you make a meatloaf

The extra egg makes a traditional, substantial crust.

Your cheese egg combo will feel wet, but just pat, pat, pat it out onto your pam sprayed pan.

Bake at 450 for 10-15 minutes

Here is a picture before baking

Once it is baked it will look like this

Now, add your toppings

I used

1/4 cup marinara sauce1

1 cup shredded mozzarella

1/4 cup shredded cheddar/jack

12 Italian Meatballs sliced into quarters

1 onion sautéed

Top the pizza and run it under the broiler at 500 until cheese is melted.

Here's what my finished pizza looked like! ~~~~~ I know you're drooling!

This yields a slightly thicker, chewy crust with crispy edges. I

t makes a huge 16 inch pizza.

It yields 12 to 16 slices with a very low carb count depending on toppings.

If you like a classic, chewy crust, this one is for YOU!

Is this what we call food porn?
Enjoy with a side salad or some yummy broccoli!


Hope you will try it, especially if you low carb, or avoid gluten. No
flour of any kind in this yummy pizza!
