Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Beat the eggs and blend in 6 ounces (170 g) of cheese. Spread the cheese and egg batter on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You can form two round circles or just make one large rectangular pizza. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes until the pizza crust turns golden. Remove and let cool for a minute or two.
  3. Increase the oven temperature to 450°F (225°C).
  4. Spread tomato paste on the crust and sprinkle oregano on top. Top with 4 ounces cheese and place the pepperoni and olives on top.
  5. Bake for another 5-10 minutes or until the pizza has turned a golden brown color.
  6. Serve with a salad.

Tip!

Go ahead and try sun-dried tomato pesto or a jar of spaghetti sauce or pizza sauce, but make sure there is no added sugar.

Low-carb topping options are endless: bacon, salami, mushrooms, blue cheese, shredded chicken, sautéed onions, feta cheese… you know what you like!

    Don't make this for the first time if you are supposed to be fasting because you might be like me an not be able to resist having a taste. It was delicious. I made it on parchment paper on a baking sheet and spread it out as thinly as I could. There should be no pools of egg. If there is you need more cheese. I added left over roast lamb, leftover roast pumpkin and chorizo. Will definitely make again.

    Hello Alison, did you get a reply? I also have the same question to ask ... I am having left overs on a portion, but that's as I am not so hungry and never eaten big portions, generally.
    Let me know if you hear back! Thanks

    Hi,

    Just made this pizza and I am amazed. I can't believe it tastes like a pizza. The crust I had my doubts about but oh myyy. How wrong was I?! It tastes like a crust without the guilt of having carbs. The toppings I used were oregano, onion flakes, baby spinach, yellow bell pepper, red jelapenos and mozzarella cheese.

    I am sooo happy that it turned out so well. And my kids couldn't resist so I was quarter of a pizza short and still full. I think I will incorporate this into future family meals most certainly!

    Just noticed bags of grated cheese in the UK have potato starch added, which can seriously dent into the daily carb allowance. Best to grate the cheese yourself and save some money too!

    Can someone please break down the carbs, fat & protein in grams?
    Any serving size.
    Thank you so much!

    This is my favorite recipe on this website. I make exactly like the recipe says to do. It does not taste eggy in the least. It's absolutely delicious. I make this one or two times a week. Sometimes I fry one Italian sausage link with a little chopped onion and bell pepper and use that as my topping. Fabulous. And, yes, I realize that raises the carb count. But, it's worth it.

    Fed it to the family...they love it! The key is making sure it's spread thin. when it's thin, it's just like a crust and crispy. I think next time I'll blend the cheese and egg together in my food processor. I also followed one person's tip and added some salt and red pesto to the tomato paste. Fantastic!

    Big Dub,
    Chronometer is fantastic if you want to count. https://cronometer.com You can set it to lo carb settings (strict, moderate, high, etc.). You can also track your nutrients. I'm not very good at tracking, though. :)

    Although if you're not interested in serving size, if you hover over the tool they have it gives you the ratios of protein vs. fat vs. carbs.

    LOVED IT!
    I don't mix meat and dairy, so I used mushrooms, olives, capers, oh so yummy! This is going to be one of my most fav recipes!
    I also made a version for my daughter (who is gluten/casein intolerant), replaced cheese in crust with some gluten-free flakes, and then just skipped it for the topping, but added beef pepperoni :) She loved it!

    I hate fat head pizza base and the cauli one gives me terrible heartburn (even though cauli on it's own doesn't-weird I know!) so this is perfect for me I added a little paprika and mixed italian herbs to the mix YUMMO
  11. wendy
    I don't understand, I made a pizza for 6 - but the base wasn't like a batter - it was just a runny liquid... what have i done wrong??
  12. Aimee
    Can you use Silpada mats instead of parchment paper??
    Reply: #113
  13. Ian
    I've use my silpad mat in the past for cheese and other non-bread baking and it really isn't the best. The clean up is a nightmare because things get stuck in the tiny perforations. I use parchment paper and I find it much better than a silpad for this recipe.

    Thank you for these great ideas. I saved them and now I'll change my cooking lifestyle. I love the egg plant ones. I'm trying that one today. Coincidentally I bought two eggplants when I was coming home from work yesterday. I found your mail just in time. Cooking is my past time.
  15. Victoria Fender
    Wow, this was really good and satisfying. I didn't feel like eating again for a few hours. Thanks for the recipe!

    Absolutely delicious! Surprising to say the least. I'm not a fan of eggs so I was really nervous about the crust. Boy was that a waste of time. It was insanely good and tasted like crust for some reason. My brain is still trying to wrap it's head around it. I must say that I seasoned the eggy stuff with Salt, Pepper, Garlic Granules and Italian Seasoning prior to baking it for the first time. Also, I made it in a lined (no parchment - had to use my silicone liner) cookie sheet for ease. I'd love to take it to work tomorrow for a friend to taste, but I have no idea how I'd heat it up again. Since it's not real pizza crust, would I be able to? I would rather store it in a container on top of the fridge, but I wouldn't do that with pizza. Hmmmm....I have to think about this. Anyway, thanks for the delicious recipe! I'll try the fathead version next.

    Wow! My husband and I just enjoyed a typical pizza Sunday with NO guilt! I read all of the reviews prior to making so I had helpful hints before I started. Several people have asked about the parchment paper - our pizza didn't stick but I do have the "oven safe & non-stick" kind made by Reynolds (perhaps this is the difference). I used the suggested 4 eggs with cheese along with garlic and onion powder prior to mixing. I used our Ninja so that everything was nice and blended. I left the egg mixture in the oven for longer, 20-25 minutes. I used a rectangle air pan - 15.5x10.5 inches. Here's what I concluded: (1) The garlic and onion powders give the crust a fantastic flavor. (2) I added salt and pepper along with the suggested oregano to the tomato paste. As another person stated, make sure you place the paste all the way to the edge of the crust. This is crucial to not tasting "egg." (3) I piled on fresh spinach (minus the stems) as well as a few portobello mushrooms (I don't care for olives). Added toppings make for a great taste - add additional meats, vegetables. (4) I placed the pepperonis on first (after paste), sprinkled a very light layer of mozzarella cheese on and then added the spinach and mushrooms, topped with more mozzarella cheese. The light layer of cheese helps everything "stick." (5) I sprinkled a little cheddar on top of the mozzarella to give the pizza more color and taste. Summary: In my opinion, the spices and additional toppings are key. What a great recipe!

    Unfortunately this stuck so badly to the parchment paper it was almost inedible.
  19. Karen
    mine stuck to the tin wven though I greased it with olive oil it asl seperated the egg form the cheese want not good ! tips please?
  20. Charlotte
    Can anyone tell me why my mixture was not like a batter??? 4 eggs 6oz grater cheese. The eggs just ran out of the cheese and soaked the parchment paper.
  21. Janet
    Just made this - very tasty - but would have to include the "carbs" in the baking paper!
    It stuck so solidly the only way to taste it was to also eat some paper! What did I do wrong?
  22. Mame
    The batter was liquid and the end result tasted like a over-cooked pizza omelette. This one is not for me. I am picky about pizza and picky out omelettes.

    Love this recipe. I added a 1/4 c coconut flour to my crust to make it a bit more bread like. I wish I could share a picture.
  25. Daniel
    I thought this was fantastic... I didn't think it would turn out even as I was halfway through making it. It ended up being one of my favorite recipes from the site so far. One note though: tried warming up the leftovers the next day... not so good. I would say make enough to eat it fresh. The microwave is not this guys friend.
  26. Nadia
    This was delicious. Very very easy to make. I just mixed the eggs and grated cheese, I dont know if you are supposed to blend them with a blender to avoid puddling of egg. It did not have the crunch throughout but the edges were lovely and crispy. As already mentioned, it is very very filling. Next time perhaps a tuna and onion topping, or parma ham and rucola.

    Now you can buy Atkins frozen pizza at Smith food store. Not sure of the other stores you can look up Atkins food for sale where.?

    Ok, guys, I just made this pizza after postponing it for a while.First of all, this is pretty good I would say, but don't expect it to be like a real pizza.It still has an eggy taste, but I managed to restrict it to a minimum.Here's how:

    I used 2 eggs and about 180gr Mozzarella for the crust.I ended up mixing them in a blender, because it just didn't feel right without it.
    Next in the oven on parchment paper for about 20+ minutes as Daphne suggested on post 117.
    Out of the oven,turned it upside down(as some other person did it here), put some tomato paste, salt n peppa and oregano, add a thin layer of mozzarella, and about 120gr of Cheddar.Back to oven for 5-10 minutes.Awesome!

    I've read somewhere, that if you put a drop of vinegar in the egg mix, it takes tha egg taste away.Anyone knows more about it?If someone try it, please please report back.

    Edit: Oh and my pizza didn't stick at all as of some others.I spread it as thin as I could if that helps.

    This turned out surprisingly great. It's not a "real" pizza crust, of course, but with the tasty toppings you hardly notice. It seemed so odd (and wonderful) to finish pizza without feeling bloated! I added some onion, mushroom slices, and red hot pepper bits for some extra spice, and once again the family rated this a solid thumbs up! I had some very wide size parchment paper which I lay over a pizza pan (that had edges), so that contained the crust batter in a circular shape and didn't allow it to dribble out anywhere. My pan has a fairly good upwards slope edge, so if you can find a pizza pan like that, it works quite well.
  30. Benjamin
    Wow! This dish was certainly something else. I really wasn't sure what to except and I admit I had a bit of a hard time bring it together and having faith that it would all turn out well. At first cooking the crust almost made it look like a Swedish pancake that my mom used to make but it eventually browned properly with only one corner looking like an omelette. Even though I knew the ingredients my brain was having trouble deciphering if I was eating a pizza or a mozzarella omelette, but it tasted amazing in the end. It kind of had the taste that I enjoy from a Dijorno's Pizza and man was this filling too. I was almost full after two slices out a six slice set up but I had a third piece and now I'm pretty sure I'll be full for the rest of the night. I will be maxing this again and recommending it to all my friends. Just make sure not to let the egg out of the circle of cheese while you're laying it out.
