  • 15 slices pepperoni
  • ½ cup crumbled bacon
  • 1 cup browned ground sausage
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan
  • 3 Cheeses: we use 3 different cheeses in this recipe, mozzarella, marbled cheddar and parmesan.
  • Eggs: to hold the ingredients in the crust together while keeping it low carb.
  • Meat: we top this pizza with bacon crumbles, cooked ground sausage and lightly pan fried pepperoni.
  • Sauce: can you have a pizza without sauce? I can but for this recipe we used a low carb tomato sauce.
  • Seasonings: we use oregano, garlic powder and a salt to flavour the crust

Zero Carb Pizza Crust

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. To make the crust, use a large mixing bowl and bring together the 4 ounces of shredded mozzarella, 4 ounces of shredded marbled cheese, eggs and the the garlic powder, dry oregano and salt. Mix together with a rubber spatula until well combined.
  • Transfer the crust mixture onto a parchment lined 10″ pizza tray or baking sheet. Place another piece of parchment on top and use a tumbler or rolling pin to spread out the crust in the pan. (you may want to watch the video to see how I did this). Gently remove the top layer of parchment paper from the pizza crust.
  •  Bake the pizza crust in the oven at 350°F for 15 minutes. During this time pre cook the sausage and pepperoni.
  • Remove cooked pizza crust from the oven and place a layer of parchment paper on top and gently flip the pizza, then slide back onto the pizza pan. (take a peek at the video to see how I did this).
  • We want to flip the pizza to allow the top to cook (now the bottom) while we bake it with the toppings.

Toppings

  • Place the toppings on the pizza. I started with the pizza sauce, then half of the mozzarella, pepperoni, sausage, bacon crumble and then used the remaining mozzarella and then sprinkled with grated parmesan.
  • Once you have topped the pizza, bake in the oven at 350°F for 15 minutes and then another 5 minutes on broil if needed. I prefer the toppings crispy so I broiled for a few minutes.
  • Allow the pizza to slightly cool for a couple of minutes before slicing and removing from pizza pan. As it cools it will firm up and be ready for consumption just like a traditional pizza. Drizzle the top with a little olive oil for some extra wow!
