Making low carb simple
- Heat a 7” (18 cm) non-stick skillet over medium heat.
- Sprinkle 3/4 of the cheese in the bottom of the skillet. The cheese will melt into a thin, solid layer.
- Lower the heat and top the melted cheese with sausage, bell pepper, remaining cheese, and pepperoni. Cook on low heat for 3-4 minutes until the toppings are warmed.
- Sprinkle the Italian seasoning over the pizza. The pizza is done when the cheese on top is melted, and the cheese “crust” is browned.
- Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
- Remove the pizza from the skillet and onto a plate. Use a pizza cutter to cut the pizza into slices. Serve with tomato sauce for dipping.
Tell it to print selection. Voila, it only prints what you select.
That should work well. I have a small skillet I use for 1 serving and a larger skillet for 2-3 servings. As long as the skillet is non stick enough it should work.
You may want to try a small amount of oil in the skillet?
I am so glad you enjoyed this one!
Awesome! Thanks for your feedback on this recipe!
You may need to lower your heat to allow the cheese melt without burning.
The default serving size on this one is 1. So, unless you change the serving size to 2 or more, the entire pizza is 1 serving.
That is generally not necessary as the skillet is hot enough to warm the thin layer of sauce.
You are right! Thank you for letting us know. We have fixed this recipe.
The default for this recipe is 1 serving, so the carb count would be for the entire pizza.
The half cup is a measurement of volume. The ounces (since they don't say fluid ounces) are a measurement of weight. Different ingredients/cheeses/nut flours/etc have different density so the weight may vary for different ingredients.
You can use a 1/2c measuring cup or use a kitchen scale to weigh out 2oz/55g.
I am sorry you didn't have success with this one, Ruth. It helps to have a non-stick pan and to be sure you leave it on medium heat until the cheese begins to come together to form a crust and begins to brown. It takes patience, but it is worth it if you enjoy pizza.
This is for a dry measurement, not liquid, so in this instance 1/2 cup would be 2 oz.
