"This is AWESOME! I have made it about 4 times now, but last night's was the best yet. I did make a bunch of alterations to find the perfect version and here it is. First, I added oregano, minced garlic, chives & red pepper flakes to the egg mixture to give it some more flavor. Next, after I spread the mozzerella cheese onto the bottom of the pan, I stuck that in the oven for about 5 minutes. By doing this, I found that at the end of everything, the bottom came out to be a PERFECT crust!!! Next, I used Contadina marinara sauce (very low in sugar and carbs) and added plenty of oregano, garlic powder, minced garlic, red pepper flakes, and parsley, and let it simmer for the entire time that the pizza was cooking. This is the absolute essential step - use a large round pan!! I've done it all different ways, and by spreading the "dough" out on such a large surface, it was the perfect texture and had a great crunch to it, just like real pizza! To the top, I added mozzerella cheese and made half of the pizza with peppers and onions, and the other half with bacon bits. My hubby LOVED it - and he's a true skeptic of low carb "mock" dishes!!"
"This is a great recipe! I made mine into a white pizza, followed the directions for the crust, then sprinkled 1 cup of feta, some chopped spinach, and topped with a little extra mozzarella. I also added some grilled chicken breast. It was yummy from bottom to top :)"
"I've been making this for awhile now and it's very good and easy to make. Think of it as a pizza quiche. The only things I do differently are to add 1 Tble. dried oregano(more pizza taste) and use a deep, round pyrex pie plate. It's also good for low carb eaters who don't want meat. I make it during lent on Thursday, remove meat on Friday and it microwaves great for my husband's lunch at work."
"If you read no other review, read this one. I'm writing this after a long week and, really, all I wanted was an adult beverage and pizza. I'm going to bed happy; before I do, however, I'm writing my first online recipe review, ever. The pizza was that good. You need to know 3 things:<br/><br/>1. This recipe is amazing; trust the reviews. I'm not a great cook and the final product turned out better than I anticipated. Quite frankly, low carb or not, this was one of the best pizzas that I've ever had (and I'm a foodie!). I made a primal guttural sound when I took my first bite.<br/><br/>2. The "dough" will be soupy before you cook it. I was doubtful, but see above :)<br/><br/>3. Follow the advice of "Chef #464581": (1) add extra spices to the dough," including red pepper flakes, (2) put the "bottom-of-the-pan mozzarella" in the pan and place the pan in the oven for a few minutes before baking the egg/cream cheese/spice mixture on top of the cheese, (3) use a round pizza pan, it works wonders, and (4) spice up the tomato sauce!<br/><br/>I'm not kidding. DO IT!"
"This was fantastic, I tweaked a bit....here's what I did: First, after spraying PAM on a 16" pizza pan, I sprinkled about 4 T of Bob's Red Mill coarse ground corn meal before the Mozzarella. This makes more of a 'pizza hut' type crispy crust in the end. Then I added 2 T of soy flour and 2 T of golden flax meal (golden flax has a milder taste) and 1/2 tsp of xanthan gum (to bind so it wouldn't be crumbly). These elements added a 'crust' effect I felt was missing the first time I tried the recipe. I used a 16" pizza pan and put the cheese in for 5 minutes (before adding egg mixture) as previous reviewers have. To understand low carb baking, you must know that you have to replace gluten when cooking with low carb flours (flax, soy, almond, etc). You may do this by any number of methods, the lowest carb being eggs or xanthan gum. You need an extremely small amount of xanthan gum (1/4-1/2 tsp) to achieve this, or eggs, or a combination of the two. I used all the eggs called for in this recipe PLUS 1/4 tsp of xanthan gum with the additional flours. Next time I'm using almond flour and soy flour and I'll let y'all know how it goes! THANK YOU for this recipe!!!"
"I have made this many times, and it is fantastic. I have baked it in a jellyroll sized pan to make a really thin crust, it's best if you let it brown a bit before you put on the toppings. Love it with italian sausage, turkey pepperoni and lots of mozzarella and parm."
"Honestly, this is the best gf/low-carb pizza I've ever tried, and I've tried a lot. My boyfriend liked it too. Although, I have to say, he's been a test rat for many of what I call my "experiments". The only thing I did differently is I added 4T protein powder to the egg mixture and cooked the whole thing on a smallish cookie sheet. It was awesome. Thanks!!"
"Made this last night...absolutely fabulous. I added pepperoni, fresh mushrooms and sausage crumbles. Pizza turned out great. Will definitely add this to my recipe box as a favorite."
"We usually have pizza every Friday night,I stop at Little Ceaser's on the way home from work. However I was off yesterday, so I decided I would make a pizza, I came across this recipe it looked so good, and I liked the concept of the cheese crust. I had about a cup of leftover spaghetti sauce w/ italian sausage that i used, sauted a half of an onion, crushed red pepper flakes, sliced mushooms and a jalapeno added it the sauce,topped it with pepperoni and the remaing cheese. OMG the crust was nice and golden, almost to golden,but I love burnt cheese. My husband couldn't believe there was no dough, it was soo good and the fact that it is low carb is even better I took a picture of it with my phone, can't wait to share it with my friends. This just may become our " Friday night pizza ! Thanks, for posting."
"Schmeckt fantastisch! Die ganze Familie hat sich über diese Pizza gefreut!<br/>Tastes fantastically! The whole family has been glad about this pizza!"
"I have been eating this recipe for many years. I usually put sausage, onions, pepperoni, and peppers on mine. I do not use the heavy cream, but substitute water instead. I also usually don't use fresh garlic, just garlic powder."
"This was an awesome replacement for regular pizza! Thank you!"
"Made a Veggie Pizza & it was awesome even my 8 year old loved it! On a low carb diet & my mom is diabetic so we cant have much pizza so its awesome we can finally have pizza with out worrying. I put cheese on bottom cooked for 3 min before putting the crust in. The toppings I got from
with added mushrooms, spinach and tomato which where covered in oil & vinegar"
"I was initially skeptical about this because I enjoy pizza crust so much. However, I was really needing a pizza substitute for that craving since i'm not eating low-carb. I loved the flavor of this! It was a good substitute, thought the crust is certainly not like pizza crust. I used less egg and baked the cheese before adding the egg mixture (it made the bottom kind of crispy this way) as suggested in other reviews. It turned out great! I made this for myself, because I figured my partner wouldn't be interested in it (pizza is his one of his favorites). He tried it though, and wanted to eat the whole thing. I will definitely be making this again.Thanks for sharing!"
"My husband and I really liked this recepie. It was a great break in our diet that made it seem like we were having a little fun. We didn't miss the crust at all. The only thing we did different was add a little pizza seasoning to the top of our tomato sauce. Thanks for posting the recepie!"
"This was just what the doctor ordered for my husband and me!!! It was great! Almost like the real thing. Next time, I'll put some crushed red pepper flakes on the sauce for some punch. Very good. "
"Loved this recipe but not sure I got the best crust possible. I followed recipe and pre-baked the cheese crust for 5 minutes as suggested. Then added spices to egg mixture for taste. End results the very bottom of crust.(The mozzarella cheese) was a extra crispy brown texture that just peeled off the egg mixture part of the crust??? Again it was still very good but don't think the bottom should peel off which btw just tasted like burnt cheese. Help!"
"This is great. I substituted oregano for the Italian seasoning because I was out. I also used a 10x15 pan to get a thinner crust and used a small 8oz can a pizza sauce. You cannot go wrong with this recipe. It is definitely a keeper and is a wonderful substitute for a bread pizza crust."
"We make pizza pretty much every Friday and being gluten free and trying to cut down on carbs it's a constant struggle to find something that is somewhere in between those two and actually tastes good. This is coming from someone who has tried it all: cauliflower, chicken/cheese mixture, cheese only, ground beef, high carb gluten free flours & starches, etc. I tried this recipe last week and plan on making it again tonight!<br/><br/>I made it as suggested with baking the cheese til melted first (on parchement paper) and cut down the eggs to 2 so it wouldn't be too 'eggy'. I was worried about it tasting like an omlet but it didn't at all. I added some minced garlic and crushed red pepper as well as some italian blend seasoning. I also added a few tablespoons (4ish) of golden flax meal to the egg blend to add some chewyness.<br/><br/>This is a perfect base recipe to tweak to make the perfect low carb/gluten free pizza and will now be my go to recipe (which is saying alot). It's also great for making "pizza eggs" the morning after! :) <br/><br/>Thank you very much!!!"
"Dh and I have been doing the Low Carb diet for quite some time so it was really nice to have "pizza" for dinner. We enjoyed the taste of this, but we both found it very rich. That's not necessarily a bad thing though, as you tend to eat less. I'll definitely be making this again and will play around with it a bit. I'd like to try using 3 eggs as another reviewer indicated. Thanks for the great recipe."
