No Crust Pizza (ultra low carb)

IMG_20120203_185328-660x330

For those of us that just love and miss pizza due to our diabetes, here is a very close substitute that is absolutely delicious! It has no bread dough, does not use cauliflower as it base (which is a lot of work), and you can put any of your favorite low carb toppings on it.

Found this recipe on Pinterest and modified as needed:

20 oz. ground beef (we selected the higher fat one to make more LC/HF friendly.

2 large eggs

1/2 cup cheddar cheese – shredded (suggested that you shred your own from block as it will have less carbs and less filler)

28 pepperoni slices (we used turkey pepperoni)

1/2 cup pizza sauce  (I used All Natural) You may be able to find low carb.

4 oz mozzarella cheese (suggested that you shred your own from block as it will have less carbs and less filler)

Salt & Pepper to taste, Garlic Powder ( I also used Italian Seasoning)

Instructions:

Mix ground beef, eggs, and seasonings well ( I added a couple of Tablespoons of Pizza Sauce in as well)

Place mixture into a cast iron skillet or round pie baking stone – smooth and form into crust – thinner the better (the reason we used an iron skillet was to catch the drippings from the meat as it cooked)

Bake 15 minutes @ 400 degrees or until meat is done (Mine took about 19 minutes) I drained off most of the liquids

Take out of oven, add sauce, pepperoni (as well as other pizza toppings you prefer) and cheese, return to oven and bake until cheese is melted and bubbly!

Cut into portions as soon as possible as it will part easier.

Enjoy!
