    Ingredients:
    • 8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
    • 4 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
    • 3 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 teaspoon basil, optional
    • Toppings of your choice *

    Directions:

    Mix the cheeses, eggs, garlic powder and basil well. Line a 16-inch pizza pan
    with parchment paper or nonstick foil. Evenly spread the cheese mixture in the
    pan, almost to the edge, making it as thin as possible. Bake at 450º 15-20 minutes
    until golden brown. I suggest checking it after about 10 minutes. If it's getting very
    dark on the edges and top, turn the oven down to 400º and continue baking until
    brown all over and no longer pale on the bottom. Pat off any excess grease then
    add your toppings. Keeping the oven rack in the center position, put the pizza
    under the broiler until the toppings are hot and any cheese you added is
    melted and bubbly, about 4-5 minutes.

    Makes 8 servings
    Can be frozen.

    * You may want to sauté your mushrooms, peppers and other vegetable toppings
    before using because the pizza will only be baked briefly with the toppings on. I also
    recommend pre-warming any meat toppings as well. I put all of my toppings, except
    the sauce and cheese, in a big skillet and heated them up together.


    I was in serious shock, because I wanted pizza forever! I've tried the low carb crust
    with the Parmesan cheese, while it was good it doesn't compare to this one. I did some
    calculations on the carb and protein stats:

    The entire Pizza is:

    20g of carbs: for the crust and sauce that I used. I used a pack of Mozzarella and
    half pack of cheddar for the crust.

    119g of protein: Just in the crust alone! The whole bag of cheese that I used had
    7g of protein per serving. There were 8 servings in a bag. That's 56g of protein!
    The crust also has 3 eggs which is 6 grams of protein an egg.

    So Just the Crust and Sauce alone is 20g of carbs and 119g of protein! I used
    Trader Joes Three Cheese Pasta Sauce. It has the least amount of carbs I've
    seen per serving! Only 4g of Net Carbs per 1/2 cup (all I used) and 3g of protein.

    What I added to my pizza to make it even higher protein:

    Since I don't eat pork, I found this spicy Italian sausage from Kroger. The entire
    roll (which I used) is 80g of protein and 4 g of carbs. I also put 17 turkey
    pepperoni on there which was another 9g and a serving of turkey bacon which was
    2g of protein. So the toppings in itself added another 106g of protein!

    So The entire Pizza was 24g of Carbs and 228g of protein![​IMG]

    So divide that into 8 Slices that is 3g of carbs per slice.
    And 28.5g of protein per slice![​IMG] I will take that any day!...lol!

    And the pizza itself is extremely filling. I ate one slice, and I ate another one
    about 1 1/2 later. Seriously one slice can be your lunch and you would be just fine.
    This pizza also has copious amounts of fat beyond belief! There is so much fat,
    but who gives a rats ass!!! Here is a pic of my Pizza:
