OK, I know some of you are going to say that this is not even a recipe.
I am not one of those people who is in to making alternatives for crusts, tortillas and bread. I find ways to live without it. If I can’t have the real thing, forget it.
I really crave pizza. I got the idea for this when I discovered that one of our local pizza places actually has a low carb pizza on the menu, no crust. It has low carb pizza sauce, toppings, and a ton of cheese.
DING, DING, DING!!!
Now I make it for myself at home a lot, especially for lunch. You can put whatever you want on it, but check your carb counts. I usually include olives and mushrooms as my “vegetables” and load up on meats like pepperoni and sausage.
Be careful with the pizza sauce!! Try and use a low carb one, like Rao’s, and only use a small amount. It can really jack up your carb count.
The way I make it, it comes in at 286 calories and 5.8 grams of carbs, mostly from the sauce!
- ¼ cup Rao's marinara
- Sliced baby bella mushrooms
- Sliced ripe olives
- Shredded mozzarella
- Preheat oven to 400F
- Spray a pie plate with non-stick cooking spray.
- Spread marinara on bottom of pie plate
- Layer mushrooms, olives and pepperoni, and then top with mozzarella.
- Bake for about 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
