Ingredients

Low-carb tortillas
Topping
  • 25 tsp 120 ml tomato sauce
  • 2 cups 475 ml shredded cheese
  • 2 tsp 2 tsp dried basil or dried oregano
  • salt and pepper (optional)

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

Tortillas

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Whisk the eggs and egg whites fluffy and continue to whisk with a hand mixer, preferably for a few minutes. Add cream cheese and continue to whisk until the batter is smooth.
  3. Mix salt, psyllium husk and coconut flour in a small bowl. Add the flour mix one spoon at a time into the batter and continue to whisk some more. Let the batter sit for a few minutes, or until the batter is thick like an American pancake batter. How fast the batter will swell depends on the brand of psyllium husk – some trial and error might be needed.
  4. Bring out two baking sheets and place parchment paper on each. Using a spatula, spread the batter thinly (no more than ¼ inch thick) into 4–6 circles or 2 rectangles.
  5. Bake on upper rack for about 5 minutes or more, until the tortilla turns a little brown around the edges. Carefully check the bottom side so that it doesn't burn.

Pizza

  1. Turn your oven up to 450°F (225°C).
  2. Spread 1-2 tablespoons of tomato paste, sauce or ajvar (roasted red pepper sauce) on each low-carb tortilla bread. Salt and pepper if needed.
  3. Bake the mini pizzas in the oven until the cheese has melted.

    Might try almond milk. Stay away from soy milk due to phytoestrogens (mimics womens estrogen).

    What’s a good substitute for cream cheese if you are lactose intolerant?
