Low Carb Pizza Recipes-Pizza On A Low Carb Diet

If you ask anyone on a fat loss diet what their favorite cheap food is then 99% of the time they’ll tell you pizza. I mean let’s all be honest, pizza is slamming. While you want to avoid it for the most part when you’re trying to lose weight, if you decide to cook it on your own instead of buying it then you can actually make a pretty healthy low carb pizza to support your diet instead of pulling you away from it.  Here’s four low carb pizza recipes.

Deep Dish Low Carb Pizza

Ingredients:

  • 6 eggs
  • 6 oz cream cheese (3/4 package) at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1½ teaspoon oregano or other Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • pinches of black and/or cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup (or a little more) shredded Italian cheeses, at least half of which is a hard cheese (Parmesan, Assagio)

Preparation:

Heat the oven to 350° F.

1) Be sure the cream cheese is at about room temperature. Using a regular blender, food processor, or (my preferred) stick blender, mix the egg and cream cheese until well blended. Add the salt and spices and blend again.

2) Spread cheese in bottom of well-buttered 9X13 pan. I often use an Italian blend such as Trader Joe’s Quattro Formaggio. Pour egg mixture over the cheese, and bake for 22-25 minutes, or until the top is browning.

3) Remove from oven, add pizza toppings, and bake until done – about another 10-15 minutes.

Makes 8 servings.

Low Carb Pizza Bites

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • ¼ cup sugar-free pizza sauce or spaghetti sauce
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese, or combination mozzarella and other cheese such as Parmesan
  • ¼ cup finely minced green pepper or other pizza topping
  • 24 slices of thin-sliced pepperoni, preferably in large thin slices

Preparation:

Heat oven to 350° F.

  1. Poke the pepperoni slices into the bottoms of the mini-muffin cups, or butter the cups well if you aren’t using the pepperoni (I find that oiling the pans doesn’t work as well).
  2. Cream the cream cheese with a mixer until smooth and fluffy. Add eggs, garlic, and oregano, and beat until smooth.
  3. Mix the rest of the ingredients in by hand.
  4. Fill the muffin cups with the egg and cheese mixture.
  5. Bake for about 15-18 minutes, or until lightly browned on top and set in center. Remove from oven, and cool for a few minutes (5-10), then run a knife around the top to loosen (I use a plastic knife for my nonstick pan). Remove to a plate.

Low Carb Pizza With Meat Crust

Ingredients:

  • About 1¼ lbs. hamburger – or, up to half can be Italian sausage
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • Sugar free spaghetti sauce or pizza sauce
  • Cheese
  • Pizza toppings such as mushrooms, green pepper, onions, etc.

Preparation:

Oven Method: Mix the meat, salt and spices together, and spread the meat out on a baking sheet with sides (such as a jelly roll pan). You want the meat spread thin, but without holes. I make it in a sort of oblong with rounded corners. Bake in a 375° F. oven for about 10 minutes. Pour off the grease. Cover the meat with sugar-free pizza sauce or spaghetti sauce (in most places the spaghetti sauce is much easier to find, and works great). Cover with cheese and your choice of pizza toppings – we like lots of veggies.

Grill Method: For this you need a tray with holes for the grill, sometimes called a vegetable grilling sheet or grill grid. But you can’t spread the meat directly on it, or it will squish down into the holes. So I oil a regular baking sheet, spread the meat on it, and flip it onto the grill sheet (it’s actually not hard to do). Then grill the meat until it’s brown around the edges, put the toppings on the pizza (but leave about 2 inches around the edge for the cheese to melt into), close the lid, and cook for a few minutes until the cheese is melted and it’s all done. It has a smoky grilled flavor this way.
