LOW CARB Pizza Crust

2 carbs per slice

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
3 eggs
16 TBSP or 1 cup Flax Meal, finely crushed
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Cut a circle of parchment paper to fit a 14-inch round pizza pan and slightly going up the sides of the pan. Spray the pizza pan with cooking spray to help the parchment stay put. Place the parchment paper in the pan.

Whisk the cream cheese and eggs until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients except the mozzarella until well combined. Stir in the mozzarella. Drop the dough by large spoonfuls all over parchment-lined pan. Cover with two sheets of plastic wrap that have been crossed so
that the entire surface is covered. With a rolling pin, roll the dough to the edges of the pan making it an even thickness. Remove the plastic wrap. With a rubber spatula, push the dough up and away from the edges of the pan by 1/4-1/2". If the dough goes all the way to the edges, it can bubble over in the oven or go under the parchment paper.

Bake at 425º 20 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes or chill several hours.

Add the toppings and bake at 375º about 15-20 minutes longer or until the toppings are bubbly and slightly browned.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
