Yields8 Servings
Prep Time10 minsCook Time16 minsTotal Time26 mins

 1 Egg
 2 tbsp Cream Cheese
 2 ⅓ cups Mozzarella Cheese
 ¾ cup Almond Flour
 ¼ cup Sugar-free or Low Sugar Pizza Sauce - try Rao's
 Choice of toppings - Pepperoni, Sausage, Veggies, etc.
 OPA! Meat Blend

1

Preheat the oven to 400F degrees.

2

Place 1 ½ cups shredded mozzarella cheese and 2 Tablespoons Cream Cheese into a large microwave safe bowl.

3

Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir well, then continue to microwave in 15 second increments, stirring between each increment, until the cheeses are completely melted. Stir until smooth.

4

Stir in the egg and almond flour. Combine the dough in the bowl with clean, oiled hands until all ingredients are very well incorporated and it forms a ball. The dough will be very sticky. (You can also use a food processor for this step)

5

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Place the dough in the center and use your hands to press it into a circle, approximately 10 inches across (or use a rolling pin to roll the dough between two pieces of parchment paper).

6

Using a fork, poke holes all across the crust.

7

Liberally sprinkle OPA! Meat Blend on the crust.

8

Bake the pizza crust at 400F for 8 minutes, or until it just begins to brown slightly in spots. The crust may puff up while baking. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool for 5 minutes.

9

Spread the pizza sauce evenly over the cooked pizza crust, leaving a small border of crust around the edges without the sauce.

10

Sprinkle 1/3 cup of the shredded mozzarella cheese over the pizza sauce. Top with
the pizza toppings of your choice.

11

Top the pizza with the remaining 1/3 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese.

12

Bake at 400F for 8 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.

13

Cut into 8 slices and serve hot.
