Low-Carb Thin Crust Pizza

1364933_86337463I know everyone has a recipe for think crust pizza and when you go the low-carb route, it is so hard to find something that is both delicious and something that resembles a real pizza.

1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded (pre-shredded cheese contains corn starch to keep it separated. Buy blocks of cheese and shred it yourself.)
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
3 eggs
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Combine the crust ingredients together and spread over a pizza pan that is covered in parchment paper (you can also use easy release foil.) Spread the mixture out as thin as possible and all the way to the edges.

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Stay close to the oven towards the end of the baking time because it will burn quickly. After 10 minutes, you can turn the oven down to 400 degrees F to allow the rest of the crust to turn golden brown. At this point, I like to blot off the excess oil, this will help your toppings stay on.

Top with pizza sauce, pesto sauce or anything else that you may desire.

Add any and all toppings from meats, cheese to veggies.

Bake an additional 3-5 minutes on the broiler setting.
